Chakra Pendant

Here's my latest available for purchase on Etsy. I created a couple of these a few years ago, and thought I would bring them back to see how they fair. The wire wrapping is alittle difficult, but I love the end results.

It's been a few days...

since I've stopped in and posted something, so I thought I would before I went to bed. I'm sooo extremely tired. I'm working a later shift, plus trying to keep up with all the custom orders. I've finished everything from Etsy but I have others outside of there too. I can't wait to get back to my old schedule, it sucks not having the light for the photos. I'm all about natural light rather than flash...eek.

Things I need to do...
  • Create a light box
  • Order more organza bags
  • Create more pieces for Etsy (I'm not posting often enough)
  • Get better biz card paper...the stuff I have is not cutting it
  • Make book marks
  • Advertise...advertise

ummm...this list could go on forever, so I'll keep it short and just mark things off as I go.

I made a pair of earrings tonight, Fire Opal and Carnelian Hoops as a thank you gift for a buyer, I hope she likes it. I also bought some tea to send with orders as a thank you. I'm trying to be creative without losing the profit that I'm making from my sales. Some of the gifts that people send to their buyers are phenominal...I don't know how they afford it. I'm constantly amazed at the creativity that goes into those shipped boxes!

Well I'm outta here for the night *yawns* I'll post more when I can. I think I'm going to post how to's at some point in the future. Stay tuned!!

A Little Change with Big Meaning

If you remember this is one of the custom orders I was working on. At her request I've add this geometric design for more significance for the purpose of this pendant. The wire that V's into the center of the stone represents a mother's loving arms around her womb. The geometric design represents conception.

To me, this is truly a magikal piece with both it's representation and the beauty of the stone. I'm so excited for her to receive it.

Here's Some other custom pieces

These 3 bracelets are custom pieces for a buyer on Etsy.
The left one is Tourmaline, Aquamarine, and Carnelian with a Sterling silver toggle.
The center one is Fire Opal, Carnelian and Moonstone with a Carnelian silver leaf design toggle.
The one on the right is Tourmaline and Aquamarine also with a Sterling silver toggle.
I loved creating these bracelets...the colors in them are gorgeous!

Wow...Just made...Just sold!

Wow...I just made this today, posted it in my Etsy store and it sold today too! It's my second sale in less then a month, and I guess that's pretty good on Etsy, so I'm totally excited.
Wear your items...use them in them off. They'll get noticed, it'll give you a chance to promote yourself and possibly leads to a sale!

Here's some things I've been working on

These were alot of fun to work with. They were a special request by an Etsy customer who has quickly become a friend. She's a fun and helpful person, and I'm happy to have met her.

If you....

If you see anything you like step over to my Etsy site. I add things often if not daily unless I have an emergency order for jewelry....which tends to take some time.

If you have a special order, or if you like one of my pieces but would like to change something, just contact me, and I'll work with you to make that perfect piece.
