The past year has also been a big year of growth for Valerie Lynn Designs. In 2016 I participated in a total of 5 shows and scouted out several more which I would like to participate in, in the coming year. My biggest leap however has been in signing on with not one, not two but three retail stores to carry my work. If you are in the Guelph area you can now find my work at Pretty Chic Boutique and the Art Gallery of Guelph. For those of you in the Toronto area you can find me at Made You Look Jewellery in Parkdale on Queen West.
So what do I have in store for the coming year? Well first is getting back into the studio to restock! With three new stores to keep stocked my own inventory is rather depleted so making up new beauties is my first priority. Beyond that as I've mentioned I came across a number of shows I would like to try participating in this year. I would also like to approach one more store once I have some more pieces to show.
I'm really looking forward to what 2017 has to offer and I hope you are too! Time to get my hands dirty!
