We’re excited that Junk Bonanza Minneapolis will include book signings of “The Jewelry Recipe Book: Transforming Ordinary Materials into Sytlish and Distinctive Earrings, Bracelets, Necklaces and Pins” (Artisan, April 2015) by talented author and creative maven Nancy Soriano!


Soriano, who attended her first Junk Bonanza six years ago, when in town for The Creative Connection, a women’s creative and business expo she co-founded, fell in love with a piece of jewelry she purchased from Sheer Addiction Jewelry vendor Tamara Schafhauser!

“It was a bit of love at first sight,” Nancy said. ” I fell in love with her jewelry and her wonderful sense of scale and mix of material.  I had hoped we would do something together at some point. And we did. Tamara contributed to “The Jewelry Recipe Book,” including the gorgeous cover necklace.”

Tamara’s work is found in five sections in the book: Charms, Vintage Pins, Keys, Studs, and Chains. Her table in the Expo Center lobby is adjacent to Nancy’s book signing, so you can see them both at the same time!

Signings are set for 9-11 AM and 1-2 PM Thursday and Friday! And have they got a deal for you!
