Sunday Night at the Market -- You're Invited!

One of the most special things about 1000 Markets is the way the format encourages everyone to get to know the people behind the art!  

With that in mind, the artists of the Wearable Art Market will be getting together Sunday evening and we'd love to have you join us!  

Art will be the subject of course-- inspiration, latest ambitions, recent successes-- or works in progress-- general levels of creativity, chocolate addictions-- Who knows what else and where it will lead? Join us and find out!

The thread will be in the Wearable Art Market public forum-- on  

Sunday April 5th, 7 EST, 6 central, 5 mountain and 4 pacific till whenever! 

Just jump right in with your own comments and observations (or questions if you're a wearable art fan) and help us make this first Sunday Night at the Market a grand success!

Pacific Northwest Market shop - wire tree jewelry

Welcome to a new market at 1000 Markets called Pacific Northwest Market. Here we offer the very best of the Pacific Northwest and the great thing about a regional market like this is the diversity of products. I'm going to have a lot of fun introducing you to some of the shops there (of which I am one), and you know me...I'll zone right in on something I love. So, check out this fine little collection of copper goodies offered by wire tree jewelry .

Ever since I was a little child I've had a fascination with how oil film sits on top of puddles in an awesome array of colors. I can't tell you how many times I was told not to 'dawdle' because I was mesmerized in place, so you have to know I was going to be mesmerized when I saw this collection of fire patina on copper! I not only love the colors but the shapes of the pieces is so zen-like that I definitely have one on my wishlist :)

So if you too are fascinated by ripples of rainbow colors in a zen setting, then please stop by wiretree's shop to get your own little hypnotizer :D

A Collection of Art Pendants and Necklaces presented by the Wearable Art Market

Each week I will be presenting a small selection from one of the Wearable Art Collections in the Wearable Art Market at 1000 Markets. This week's feature photo collection sampling is entitled Art Pendants and Necklaces

"Wearable art, also known as Artwear or "art to wear", refers to individually designed pieces of (usually) hand-made clothing or jewelry created as fine or expressive art. While the making of any article of clothing or other wearable object typically involves aesthetic considerations, the term wearable art implies that the work is intended to be accepted as a serious and unique artistic creation or statement. Pieces may be sold and/or exhibited." (from ")  

The Wearable Art Market has a wonderfully diverse selection of products, so please drop in next week to see one of our non-jewelry collection categories. Or you can go take a peek for yourself by clicking on one of our Product Collections, found on the home page of the Wearable Art Market .
