Hi, all!  So it’s Monday and for many of you that means getting back to the daily grind and the alarm clock.  It’s no wonder most people don’t like Mondays! (myself included – lol!)  And even more so in the winter, when it’s cold and dark out, and you have to worry about slick roads.  If I ever become indpendently wealthy, you can rest assured I wil be moving to a location that’s warm year round!!

Today I will be putting together a custom order and some new combinations of Pandora style bracelets, taking pictures,  and making listings in the shop.  It’s a lengthy, time consuming process but it’s fun – I love to pour different color families of beads out on the table and then pick and choose which to put together.  After that I decide which Bali silver spacers or charm dangles to use in between them.  The combinations are endless!  I usually don’t sell multiples of the same combination of beads, unless they seem to go together particularly well.  This way everyone gets a OOAK (one of a kind) bracelet.  In the case where I do make a few of the same combination, I limit to three. 

However, if you ever see a bracelet that has been sold but you would love to own it, please email me.  If I still have the same beads available I can easily make another one up for you.  So, next time you’re shopping and don’t see what you’re looking for, remember to take a look in the SOLD section.  If you’re new to Etsy and don’t know what the heck I’m talking about (;-)  there is a link on the shop page on the left side you can click on – the link is the last line under Shop Info – right now it says “933 sales” (but that changes each time I make a sale).   After you click on that link, a page of sold items will pop up, in the order of most recent item sold.

That’s all for today, see you again tomorrow.  In the meantime happy looking, and happy shopping!
