Etsy - Free Shipping to Canada

I want to give you an update - photos of new pearl colors and Swarovski charts should be up on my site soon.

I'm revising my Etsy site. It now features free shipping to Canada and to the United States. I'll have some new items and an assortment of beads up on-line shortly.

Color Charts for Swarovski and Pearl List

I'm doing a new page on my website for color charts with Swarovski stones and also for the freshwater pearls I have available. I should be ready with this new addition shortly.

The charts are intended to provide information about crystal colors for custom orders. If you see a piece you like, but you'd prefer another color, you can see what's available.

As always, you can't be absolutely sure about the colors you see on your monitor, but it will give you an idea. The pearls come and go and I can't always get more. I can order any of the Swarovski items.

New Pearls


Some of my new pearl earrings are starting to appear in my website store. Click here to go to the store.

Here's a photo of a new necklace - I've combined amethyst beads and freshwater pearls with Swarovski crystal and aqua lampwork beads. I just love the aqua lampwork beads!

I thought the rain was over!


I really thought that the rain was over today - the sun came out and everything was lovely and green! Now the clouds have returned and the skies have opened. It's pouring again!

I'm going to post a lovely necklace from my bridal collection. Please tell me what you think.

Pearls

I hope to get photos of the new pearls taken and on the website this week. I have a number of new colors, plus some keishis and more coins in colors.

Once I get the pictures up I'll try to do a link to the "samples" page I'm planning.

It's Miserable Outside!

We had a cold front pass through overnight and suddenly it's cold again! Today's high was in the upper 50's - not exactly what we're used to after days of 80+ degree temperatures.

I worked at the Artisans Guild today and when I left home this morning the weather was rainy but OK. By the time I left the Guild this afternoon it was windy and in the 50s. I'll hope for better weather very soon.

Working Hard on Quick Books

I've spent the day trying to catch up with things - mostly Quick Books. It seems as if I'm always behind on entering something. :-)

Kumihimo Class

I had a marvelous kumihimo class with Carol Franklin this week (2 days). I learned a lot and had great fun doing the various patterns. I want to add kumi braids to some of my necklace designs. They may even become the necklaces themselves.

New On-line Store

I’m so excited! Let me tell you all about the new features of my updated website:

Now you can order from the many items pictured and pay for them directly from the website - I have necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and more (be sure to tell your friends). Once you are at my site, click on "go to online store" to start shopping.

There’s a special section in my on-line store that’s just for brides. Most of my wedding and bridal party jewelry is made to order. My bridal pieces combine fashion and romance with a touch of fantasy.

In addition, I posted my first tutorial in the store – it gives instructions for a woven fiber necklace with beads. You can download the tutorial from my website. You can also purchase gift certificates.

I’m happy to create something special just for you. I accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Check out all the new features and tell me what you think.
