Music: Pawnshop Diamond

Was just sent an email from Pawnshop Diamond's lead singer Katie Ormiston about their new video shot locally and featuring jewlery designer Jesse Turner. Check it out below. Katie's letter follows.



Hello everyone!

I am writing to share with you the latest of my doc-style music videos. This latest is a peek into the life of our dear friend and extremely talented jewelry designer - Jessie Turner. Pawnshop Diamond serenades the lovely Jessie as she hand-makes a piece from her new Open Heart Collection. Please check it out! And make sure to let me know what you think:) It was my first time using a tri-pod. Very proud of the steady hand I am. It is 3 minutes long.


If you are interested in learning more about Jessie Turner, she will be selling her wares at the following craft shows:


Circle Craft

November 11 - 16

Vancouver BC

www.circlecraft.net


Eastside Culture Crawl

November 21 - 23

Her jewelry can also be found at the following stores in Canada. http://www.jessieturner.ca/stores.php


In other Pawnshop news, the band had photos taken by Fiona Garden http://www.fionagardenphotography.com on Sunday as part of the Songbird West Songwriting Contest we won a while back. The photo shoot was more fun than to be expected thanks to Fiona and we look forward to putting them to good use with the new upcoming CD - Leaning to the Sun.


Our CD Release Party is set for Dec. 5 at the Grandview Legion in Vancouver - details to follow. We are very proud of the new album and can't wait to share it with you. For a sneak preview, check out the songs on our myspace page. Link below.


To quote the wall in Jessie's studio:


"If nothing else, believe in art."


Thank you for your support.


Sincerely,

Katie
