What's new?

What's new? Snow!!! It snowed here in Eastern Pa this weekend. Oh boy, it was a good one! Perfect snowmen, snowball fights and easy shoveling... What more do you want? Oh yeah, not taking myself too seriously for a few days, that's a good thing!
Ink Spot Pendant or Necklace
I love my work and all, but sometimes needing to pay the mortgage with my art can make me an seriously obsessed sole proprietor FREAK! Yep, a snow day was a good thing :-)
My brother is buying a second business. I can only imagine how his seriously obsessed sole proprietor freakiness is going right now. Oh my, new buildings, new employees, new bookkeeping, I think I will be offering him a lot of help in the next couple of months! Aqua and Black Pendant or Necklace
Tomorrow I go and pick up my work from the Kringle show. I can't wait to see how it went. It is usually a good show for me. I have been doing it for 6 years. Then Tuesday I take my work to a private boarding school to wow the rich girls. Ha! I am going to have fun putting together jewelry for the very fashionable High School chicks and their professors. Yep, it's going to be fun. High school girls aren't usually my demographic, being that they don't always have cash, but this is a different story. (I hope!) I think Fun, Funky, Bold Jewelry is the thing for this location.
Small Pendant, Charm or Earring Set in Purple

Also, I have been trying to use all the great suggestions that everyone left during the Beads-of-Clay open Studio Blog event. One of those suggestions was to add more Small charm sets...

Small Pendant Earring or Charm Set in Deep Dark Red
I did! I added these three new charm sets to my etsy shop this week!

Small Pendant Earring or Charm set in Blues

I also added some new small donuts fused with recycled glass. I think they would be fun as a component for front clasps, or... for more petite wearers.
I have been thinking about offering Gift Certificates in my etsy shop. Does anyone do this? What are good amounts to offer?
I hope you all had a great weekend! The snow was a good recharge for me. It kind-of threw some light into this season of long nights.

  1. I love the glass colors and how they look fractured!
