The quiet after the storm is quite appealing! Handworks was a great success and we are working (gently) on next years show which we hope will be November 7,2015. I will keep the BRP page current with what is happening for your convenience . The retail space at 584 Ada Drive is however, closed.

Wedding Gifts: Late Wedding Gifts?

Summer always seems to go twice as fast as the other seasons! If you're like me, sometimes weddings that seem months away are suddenly today. You can still order a wedding bowl even if the wedding is soon or already passed, wedding etiquette allows you one YEAR to give a gift! Let us ship it directly to them for you hassle-free, or pick it up and have a good excuse to check out their new married digs!! Order online at www.voltage-studio.com!
-Vanessa

I've heard that it's acceptable to send a wedding present up to six months after the wedding. Is this true?

For those of you who would like to remain in the loop about wedding bowls, Betsy's assistant Vanessa is taking over the wedding bowl business. "Like" Voltage Studio to stay in touch!!

I posted the bracelet I made in my class a few weeks ago. The elements of this bracelet are made from bronze, rather than copper discs. It's fun to transfer the skills into the more familiar medium. Thanks for the great class, Julie!

You asked and we listened! Now we've got the Lakeshore wedding bowl ready to go! The rim reads, "Love always, Laugh often, Forgive quickly, Share joy, Dream together", and we have written "Congratulations!" in lieu of names on the side of the bowl. No waiting. We gift wrap, and you're all set for the big occasion!

Now that I have replaced my camera which went walk-about, I will be able to put photos up again. The jewelry ideas are popping out right and left. I hope Julie Sanford and others have a grew weekend at the Grand Haven show!

These cute notebooks come in 4 convenient sizes from 10x10 to 4x4in, and the paper inside is really high-quality. Makes a great gift! Come take a look!
