The Joyful Jewel in downtown Pittsboro NC is now home for some of my jewelry!Read More
- My abstract paintings, prints and notecards are now at The Joyful Jewel, an eclectic art and craft shop in Pittsboro NC. You can find my silk and felted scarves there too. //
- Pick up some great Christmas gifts on Saturday November 4th at the Arts & Crafts Festival for Outreach at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Cary. Hours are 10 - 4, 221 Union St, Cary, NC 27511. I'll have both paintings and scarves at this show.
When I first set up my website several years ago, the options for designing my online Scarf Shop somewhat limited, and I was never really happy with it. (I use a template from Squarespace).
Quite by accident, I discovered that Squarespace had updated their shop options. After much procrastination (you're dealing with the Queen Procrastinator here) - "I don't wanna do all that work right now!" - I finally dived in and have been feverishly re-listing all the scarves that I have in stock, in the hopes of snagging some Christmas shoppers! Here are some of the scarves I have available -
I'm happy to say that I have indeed made some sales since doing this re-modeling! If you've visited my online shop before, you know that it was a bit confusing! Now each individual scarf has it's own listing, and its photo will show up in your shopping cart. Check it out!
For now, only the silk scarves are listed... I'm still working on adding the felted ones. In the meantime, if you're interested in a felted piece, I have most of them in my Cary NC studio... you're welcome to come by... just contact me.
My last day for taking online orders to ship in time for Christmas gifts will be Wednesday December 21st. I'm afraid I'm unable to take any custom orders at this time. You're welcome to come pick up your scarf if you're in my area... I'll refund the shipping cost if you paid online. More shipping info here.
You can also find my scarves at:
Village Art Circle, Ashworth Village, 200 S. Academy St., Cary NC 27511. (Silks only)
Gallery 311, 311 W. Martin St., Raleigh NC 27601. (Silk and felted)
Joyful Jewel, 44-A Hillsboro St., Pittsborough NC 27312. (Silk and felted)
My silk and nuno felted scarves love finding new outlets! They are now at The Joyful Jewel art and craft gallery in downtown Pittsboro NC. Proprietor Mariah Wheeler provides a variety of handmade items from area artists.
Here is my rack of scarves ~
My silk painting buddy Janine Maves also has her silk scarves and cute hand painted silk bags at the shop.
Just about every other kind of art/craft can be found at The Joyful Jewel, from stained glass and paintings to soap, pottery and metal sculpture. Styles range from the serious to the very whimsical. There's something fun to discover around every corner... have a look!
The Joyful Jewel is at 44-A Hillsboro St, Pittsboro NC 27312, just north of the downtown roundabout.
Open Monday - Saturday 10:30 to 5:30; Sunday 12 to 4.
I love it when my scarves find a new resting place! Recently some have moved to Going Local NC - a new handmade arts and crafts shop in Raleigh, N. Carolina. Going Local NC is there to do just what it says - promote local artists - and I'm glad to be one of them! The shop is in the sprawling Falls River Town Center in north Raleigh, at 10940 Raven Ridge Rd. Hours are Monday to Saturday 10-6; Sunday 12-5.
This is my corner of hand painted and nuno felted silk scarves ...
... and here are some other photos from around the shop. There are paintings, pottery, jewelry, clothing, soap... you name it!
There's even an alcove devoted to doggie art, doggie treats, doggie soap.
This is book art, where the pages of the book are carved into a word.
One of my favorite spots - alphabet photography! Each magnetic tile is a photo of something that looks like a letter. Can you make them out? You stick the tiles on a magnetic frame to spell a word or someone's name.
There's lots to see and many alcoves to explore at Going Local NC... I hope you'll plan a visit!
