The International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show of 2012

This week is an exciting week for Nina and I; the International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show is coming to New York once again. We’re heading down to the city for the weekend. I can’t wait to see what this year will offer- last year I was especially impressed with Phoenix Ancient Art and their unique collection, and I’m told they will be there again this week.

Here is a video from the show a couple years back, just to give you an idea:

Ancient Jewelry Making

I have never really studied the ancient art of jewelry making, but I recently heard about a new class down in New York and have to admit, I’m fascinated.

I have a friend with some connections and am hoping to sit in on some of the new lessons. I wouldn’t participate, of course, but maybe drive down for a weekend just to watch… It seems like an unbelievable opportunity!
