Yuletide at Villa Montalvo – 2011

The Historic Villa at Montalvo Arts Center  is just the right place to start off the Holiday Season. The European style marketplace with handcrafted gifts, gourmet alley and of course the beautiful holiday decor made shopping for the special gift a delightful experience for everyone. I am looking forward to be part of next years annual Yuletide Event again.




Ladies Night – Holiday Style

A Holiday Shopping Extravaganza! 

Shop til you drop while sipping on wine.  Find beautiful, handcrafted, unique gifts, clothing, jewelry and more for yourself, your family and friends.  

I am really looking forward to this fun night I enjoyed it so much last year. The beautiful decorated winery and not to mention the excellent wine, food and especially how everything is organized by Gloria and Lisa.

The perfect setting to show off my TrèsChic Holiday Glam Collection.        

This has traditionally been called “Ladies’ Night”.…but there always seems to be a few men that show up????  Men are welcome to come and crash the party…provided they shop for their lady!!!!!

The Timeless Eclectic

My “Wearever Ecology Collection” was inspired by African Tribes Jewelry. The beads are made in African Villages out of recycled painted glass and old vinyl record albums.

To give it a more contemporary look I implemented different accent elements. This style works beyond casual, the bright colors and  motifs offer a perfect option for any occasion, they create a unique look to complement your ensemble.

This TrèsChic Collection will be displayed at “The Main Gallery” in Redwood City for the 2011 Holiday Show.

Great Reception at Redwood City Gallery Annex

Once again, “The RWC Gallery Annex”, as  an extension of the Redwood City Art Center  provided a great venue for artists to come together and exhibit their Art.

Despite the rain, we had a really good turnout at the Reception and people seemed to enjoy themselves.
