[Kansas] Smoky Hill River Festival


#1

Hello Everybody,

Has anyone done the Smoky Hill River Festival in Salina, Kansas? I’ve
received an application from the Fine Art section of the Smoky Hill
River Festival. Is this a good venue for high end art jewelry? My
stuff is all handmade, I fabricate my own findings, and cut a lot of
my stones, and I charge accordingly.

Is this a show that attracts a crowd willing to pay upwards of $500
for a piece of jewelry, or is this a show that is better for
lower-end jewelry? I’d like to find out before I invest any time or
money that I could use elsewhere.

BTW - follow up on the opal/opticon- the stone broke into three
pieces, making the question moot. Spontaneous melee, I can live with
that. The other stone I cut in half along the crack, and have carved
into two seperate pieces. Have decided I will never seal or bother
with fractured opals. If it cracks, it’s going in the fishtank, and
that will be that.

Thanks in advance,
Susannah
