Here are some photos of last weekend when I was part of the line up for the holiday edition of Puces POP. This time around the festival lasted three days and the opening party on Friday was a super fun night of selling, shopping, chatting, sometimes dancing, DJ, drinking beer and wine.
I got to know sooo many lovely people, too! not only my neighboring vendor but some wonderful people that came to shop. So, thanks so much to all the wonderful organizers, fellow vendors and costumers for making the fair so special and fun!

The vintage rings I sometimes sell on my shop or at craft fairs are always such a hit and people just adores them. I'm always receiving wonderful feedback from the people who buys them, telling me they feel like wearing something really unique, special and beautiful. Well, let me tell you, they are so unique and special and beautiful! That's why I want to show you today a bit about the process of selecting and preparing them to be worn, most of them, for the first time.
First of all, I hand pick each one of them and carefully select the ones that I absolutely love. This is an awesome job as I always feel the anticipation of seeing the treasures I'm about to uncover!
Finding the perfect ring is a dirty job: I use plastic gloves and they end up disgustingly dirty!
Here you can see some of the rings I choose, already on my bench. As you see, they have a little 'tail', this is called sprue and it is the way through which the liquid metal was introduced to a mold. This means ring is unfinished and not ready to be worn.
Some sprues are easy to remove with cutting pliers but others need a bit of hand sawing.
And then what is left of the metal sprue needs to be removed with a file and emery paper, to make it smooth and nice.
To finish, I put them in the tumbler to clean and uncover some of their original shine!
I'll have some of these beauties for sale at Puces POP this weekend and on my Etsy shop by the end of the month.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this post!
See you soon :)

I'm so happy I'll be part of Puces POP Arts & Crafts Fair, once more!
It's always such a pleasure to be part of this fair as I love it so much not just as a vendor, but also as a shopper: it is a fair full of the most amazing artists and creators of pretty things.
This time around I'll be presenting some NEW pieces from my meteorite line, like stud earrings and dangle earrings, not to forget my meteorite necklaces and rings! Another highlight is that my complete BOW collection will be present and the always favourite The Angry Weather line with the Lightning Bolt Stud Earrings in bronze, plus, a bunch of pretty vintage rings.
Some of my favourite fellow vendors? Check them out!
