For this week's episode you're encouraged to slip into a muʻumuʻu, Hawaiin shirt or don a lei 'cause we're gathering in the tropical coolness of the Anneville Tiki Lounge. We'll kick things off with a panel discussion about jewelry sales with guests Anne (Etsy), Yvonne Burkart (Shopify) and Karla Knutsen (gallery sales). After quick break to refresh our mai tais Anne will share some tips for taking great jewelry photos. Next we'll cue the fire dancers for an islands-inspired jewelry runway show and that's where YOU come in. Send in photos of work you've seen or made and we'll share them in a fast paced show that will delight and inspire. We're looking for seaglass jewelry, works referencing Polynesian art and anything that conjures up the fragrance of plumeria and the sound of waves gently lapping a moonlit shore. Extra credit to anyone who shows up with tiki mug, drink with a tiny umbrella or a lava lamp! Read on for photos and resource links.
