Latest Custom Orders

This first order is going to be a gift from one friend to another. the inscription is "anam cara" which is Gaelic for "soul friend". This is the second piece I've created with this inscription. The charm is strung with a topaz birthstone crystal.

The second order is a 1" handstamped charm with the inscription "where no words are, there is love and there is you".

Promote Your Shop at my Jewelry Show

I had this listed as an alchemy request and Etsy took it down.
My friends are throwing me a home party to showcase my jewelry. i'd love to have a display dedicated to all the wonderful handmade sellers out there. i can hand out samples of your product or other promotional items.
just handing out free promotional items and samples (like small soaps or business cards) to whom ever picks them up. if you would like to dontate a door prize that showcases your product that would be great too!
PLEASE NOTE: this will be totally at your expense. you will pay to ship the items to me. if you want the leftover samples returned, you will pay to have them shipped back to you.
ABOUT THE PARTY: i plan on sending out 100 invites to women around my community. they will be anywhere from college students to grandmothers and all ages in-between. i assume/hope most will be looking for christmas gifts and such as that. my hope would be to setup a few baskets/table with various samples and promotional items from other handmade sellers to help spread the word about etsy!! if you are interested please email me and i will provide you with an address to ship whatever you'd like.
i will need ALL items by the first week of November.
(also remember to vote for me in the eJAG Autumn Contest here)

Party Prep

My friends have graciously offered to host a jewelry party for me in November.
We are calling the event
"Beads and Bubbly!"
Since this is going to be my first "show" I've been busy trying to figure out displays, pricing, inventory and how to accept special orders. My guest bedroom has become ground zero with all my pieces spread out across the bed.
I've been churning our new work everyday trying to build up my inventory so I have enough to make the event worthwhile. I was torn between holding the new items for the party or posting them now in my Etsy shop. But since I've been spending all my time designing and constructing, I haven't really had time to post any of them.
I'm really excited about my new Bangle Dangle rings which I hope will be a big hit at the party.
And also this vintage brass ring with cabochon inset. I have 2 ready for the party, one purple Amethyst and one red Garnet .
