News from the PA Wilds Artisan Trails- BRANDING

being a part of the branding process
Change is coming to the 'WILDS'. Yesterday's branding forum held at the Elk Country Visitor Center was such a success with member's faces from all over the region including artists, artisans, gallery owners, advisory committee members, etc. in attendance.
The discussions were in depth covering the how and why certain branding strategies will be implemented as we delve into the process through the upcoming months to be carried out over the next 3 years.
Brainstorming was a big part of the day while they wrapped their brains around the 'unique' nature of our membership.

This is SWELL's Greg and Staci's last day exploring and will be heading off to McKean County stopping in Laughing Owl Press, C.J. Spirits, Kinzua Viaduct,. The goal was to give them a well rounded experience including studios, galleries, restaurants, wineries, breweries, visitor's centers and small companies along the trail. The 12.5 county region would have been daunting. 


Such an exciting adventure we have a head of us!

What is on Your Jeweler's Bench Wednesday

Today in the studio I have taken the bench shear to 18 gauge copper sheet metal to cut strips for bangles.  Love the Pepe bench shear with the time saved by not sawing or using a cumbersome set of hand shears to cut one after the other.  The edges are beautifully finished with only needing a good hammer polish to take off a slight burr.
