There was a time as I began my career as a jewelry designer when I dreamed to exhibit at one of the Smithsonian Museums. I am a true believer that things come to you at the right time, no sooner no later.

This year I decided to participate at the Native Art Market of the Native American;  I  submitted my application, and said why not apply?  the worst thing that can happen is to be rejected. 10655226_10152549828678177_371004481892277033_o

So, I applied later on I found out that only 38 artists were selected from over 200 applicants. So you know how special I must have felt when I knew about it.

More so when I got on the mail the Native American Magazine and I see over half page dedicated to my Peruvian huayruros, I have dedicated over three years to create one of a kind jewelry pieces working exclusively with this good luck seeds known as huayruros.

I grew up with huayruros, knowing very well their meaning of bringing good luck and that they protect us from the evil eye or bad energy;         I remember playing with them,  although I refused to wear them traditionally (meaning in simple bracelets or necklaces), years later I found the answer as why I didn’t want to wear them. I did want to wear them but in a more sophisticated and modern way. I wanted to share my culture and heritage through my jewelry designs but following the latest trends. Not just as simple necklace or bracelet strands.

To exhibit at the National Museum of the American Indian was the opportunity to let my work shine and be known in the big apple, during the NewYork’s Super Art Market.  I met supporters of the Smithsonian made new friends and I hope to see them again in 2015. (I hope to be accepted;) again…

Let me share with you an inside on how the jewelry business runs during the years different seasons; especially for small business owners like myself.

Most of us (jewelry designers) will agree that our highest season of the year starts in September and runs through December. Then it slows down and you will be surprised at how good it could get prior to Valentines day, then after that day again slow times happen until April 15th when those organize conscious shoppers start thinking about Mother’s day and start their shopping; then comes Father’s day, then summer has arrived, and the summer festivals are a great place to showcase your hand-made products and get some sales during summer time; Summer ends, we go back again to September and the cycle starts again.

This year it isn’t different for us, we have applied to many art shows during the high season, perhaps the only thing different is that we will try to get to more cities like Dallas Tx and New York, and I will share details about our presentations;)

It is also our high season getting wholesale orders, most of the galleries boutiques do their wholesale buying during July, August & September so here at the Evelyn Brooks studio we are working on delivering orders in time for the holidays.

Please join us and help us spread the word about my jewelry designs made with Peruvian huayruros(why-ee-ru-ro), inspired in my Peruvian heritage with modern designs and following the latest trends. Did you know huayruro seeds are known for bringing good luck, prosperity, love & happiness? Give huayruros & Give Good LUCK!

Have a wonderful September! SHINE & Reach for the stars during high season and everyday!!!
