Craft Council of BC - The Earring Show - May 5, 2022

Once a year, Craft Council of BC (CCBC) gallery at Granville Island, has a fund raiser,  "The Earring Show." Next year, it will be the 10th Anniversary of this fundraiser. The gallery has so many beautiful crafts, cards, pottery, jewelry and more. It has been in it current location since 1986. Previously it was in the Carousel Theatre building since 1979. See what I wrote the last time I attended an event in 2017!

We thank Alex for the opportunity to see how so many earrings are displayed. 195 this year, from 94 local and international Designers, and how the exhibit and fundraiser is displayed best in a smaller space. Every set was placed and numbered and further details are provided online. For the evening event, there are refreshments, meet and greets and opportunities to bid and buy, in person or online. Here are 10 of our favorites:
