There are only two days left until the Women’s EXPO and things are getting both very busy and very exciting as we countdown to the event.
Ciarrai Studios was one of the four EXPO vendors featured in this lovely article about the EXPO in the Times Beacon newspaper:

Meanwhile on the home-front we are hard at work getting ready. My husband has made me some incredible necklace displays and risers for my table. I found a vintage library card catalog drawer that both looks gorgeous in my display and holds a lot of the necklaces I have made for the event. And I have been making a lot of new pieces.
Whenever I design something for Ciarrai Studios, I try to make it something that is so wonderful that if I saw it in another shop, I would want to buy it right away. This has occasionally backfired when I make something that I love so much that I don’t want to let it go! (Yes, I know I can make one for myself, and I usually do but until I can make one for me, I have issues letting go.) Today, I finished making a series of adjustable rings and I am so smitten with them that I am having a serious Gollum moment (My Precious!).
These lovely literary rings will be making their debut at the EXPO but I thought I would give you a sneak peek:
To Kill a Mockingbird Ring and Love Is Patient Ring
These rings will be exclusively available at the EXPO until after the event. For announcements of when they are available online, please visit the Ciarrai Studios Facebook Page or subscribe to my monthly newsletter.
And with that, I have to get back to work getting my table ready and finishing even more new designs (including some bangle and cuff bracelets!)
I should mention that on the day of the event: Thursday, October 3rd, the Ciarrai Studios Etsy store will be closed while we attend the EXPO. We will reopen on Friday, October 4th.
If you are local and able, I would love it if you would come to the EXPO and stop by my table. The event runs from 11 am – 6 pm at the Middle Country Library. Details can be found here at the Women’s EXPO website.
Hope to see you there!!!
