BACK IN ACTION!!

So, ok!   The laptop has been rebuilt and I am back up and running, yay!  There are still some tweaks I have to make, but generally it’s 90% done.  It’s so nice to have a quick, well-disciplined laptop again.   But enough of that, today I want to promote some of my gorgeous, handmade lampwork jewelry because it’s 1 month until Valentine’s Day.

We’ll start with this pinkilicious lampwork heart necklace.  It adjusts from 18-20″ and the heart pendant is 1-1/2″ long.  The heart is artisan made and has exquisite detail.  The necklace part is composed of handmade white silvered lampwork rondelles and air bubbled glass encased rondelles, pink quartz gemstone rounds, river stone rounds, tiny ivory lampwork rondelles, bali silver bead caps, pendant slider bail and scrolled heart lobster claw clasp.  This is a really, really pretty necklace and the photo does not do it proper justice!

Next we have this rich, classy study in pale yellow and black.  This adjustable 15″ to 19-1/4″ OOAK designer lampwork necklace features a large, puffy handmade lampwork heart pendant that is 1-1/2″ long. The heart measures just over 1″ and its base color is black with pale yellow, brown and a hint of dove gray in the raku design. The necklace also has two 8mm bronzite rounds, two black with gray dotted rectangle beads, two pale citron yellow faceted czech beads,  black onyx rounds, fancy bali silver bumpy beads, bali silver round Celtic motif beads, fancy bali silver bead caps, bali silver bicones, bali silver serrated rings for the adjustable links and a fancy bali silver heart-shaped lobster claw clasp.   There is also a 1″ dangle at the end of the 8mm links that is made of a small 15mm black lampwork heart, a fancy bali silver end pin, a citron yellow faceted czech bead and fancy bali silver bead caps.

Last but not in the least is this ultra feminine, one of a kind designer handmade lampwork necklace featuring a pink, black and white with pink roses heart pendant, lampwork flower rounds and pink base bumpy ovals, black and pink foiled myuki delica seed beads, white quartz rounds, crystal crackle glass rounds, pink and black swavorski crystal bicones, bali silver bead caps, daisy spacers and a scrolled heart lobster claw clasp.  The necklace adjusts from 17″ to 19-1/4″ and the heart pendant is 2″ long.

If you’d like to see more of my handmade heart necklaces, here’s a quick link to them.  And don’t forget, I am still offering free shipping and everything is on sale.  Enjoy browsing, and happy shopping!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

…a little late.  My apologies!  I do hope you all had an awesome New Year’s though!  Been having some problems with my laptop, which is why I wasn’t able to write this sooner, and it looks likes the damn malware has done me in again. 

My laptop is working, but barely.  I am going to have to format the hard drive and reinstall Windows, all my programs and all my files and photos and music.  *sigh*  Not how I wanted to start the new year!  But before my system dies completely, I have to back up my extensive files and then it’ll take a day or two to rebuild it. 

So, before I disappear again for a few days, I just wanted to let you know the shop will remain open but I won’t be able to respond to emails for a few days.  And I am still having a sale and free shipping, so if you have a coupon now’s the time to use it to get the bling Santa didn’t bring you :-)) 

Here’s a treasury of some of the new items I just added recently, plus some items that would make wonderful Valentine’s Day gifts!  February 14th is right around the corner, as is St Patrick’s Day (March 17th) and Easter (April 8th).  I’ll be making new items with those holiday themes, plus new items in spring colors.  *sigh* so much to do, so little time….

‘TIS THE SEASON FOR A SALE!!!!

I know!  I’ve been MIA again – and I must apologize.  But I’ve been up to my eyeballs in making Christmas goodies for all you Santa’s out there.  It’s a lot of work!  First I make up the items, then I take photos and then I have to list and write up descriptions.  It’s just very time consuming.  In the meantime, I still have to run the shop and take care of orders and questions, relist expiring listings (a lot of which I’m editing in better photos of), and I have to check and inspect deliveries and make purchases.  It’s a full-time job!  Sometimes I feel like I’m losing my mind because there’s so much to do!  And lately, I’ve just been too exhausted to write this blog though I really need to make more time for it!!  But anyway………..

I want to say my thanks, as is my custom, to all my wonderful customers – you’re all just the very best!  I really enjoy working with you all, and packing up your orders with as much care as possible.  I also want to express my thanks to all my fellow Etsian’s who have included my jewelry in their treasuries – if you have some spare time and like to look, these treasuries are awesome for getting gift ideas!  – take a minute to click on the links – and my thanks again to Galina, Olivia and Bonnie .

I have recently made some changes to my shipping charges – effective immediately every single shipped in the US will carry insurance.  I have recently taken a large hit for a few shipments that have been lost by USPS.  It’s to be expected that when you do not receive your order, you will end up filing a claim with your credit card carrier or paypal to seek reimbursement.  What many of you probably do not know is that I’m the one who loses.  Not only do I have to reverse (or pay back) the amount of the order, but I also have to lose the shipping charges and I lose the merchandise – and that hurts the shop in a very big way.  I am struggling in the most dire way right now because of REACT not allowing me to use the word  “Pandora” in my listings,  and I just cannot afford to take any more losses. 

But on a good note – I have just placed all bead sets and rhinestone charms on sale –  bead sets are now on sale for $2.99 to $5.99, and the rhinestone charms are 99 cents!!!  Now is the time to Christmas shop!!!  and especially so for those of you with coupons!!!!  Happy Shopping!!!!!

But before you go, here’s a quick Christmas preview treasury – this is just the start – I still have all the beads sets, themed bracelets and more charms to make!! (Like I said, it just NEVER ends!!)

New items in my shop and more to come! Christmas themed European/Pandora style jewelry and handmade lampwork charmdangles.  Why stress over traffic and crowded malls when you can shop from the comfort of your home?

HALLOWEEN SALE ENDING FRIDAY AT MIDNIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gosh, how the days have been flying!  I have to apologize for not writing sooner!  That said, I also have to apologize to my customers and fellow Etsians for not thanking them promptly!!!  The good news is that I have finally, FINALLY!! finished editing all those deactivated listings.  *sigh* what an enormous, annoying, irritating thing.  Well, at least it’s done.  Now I can move forward again with getting ready for Christmas!

So I see a lot of you favoriting my handmade lampwork Halloween earrings!!! But time to hurry – Halloween is only 2 weeks away and shipping takes 2-5 business days AND more importantly!! My Halloween Sales Event will end tomorrow at midnight – so hurry hurry over to take advantage of the 20% off mark down!!!! Here’s a quick LINK.

I need to say thanks to my awesome customers, and even more so to those of you who keep coming back to shop with me again and again.  I can’t begin to tell you how much that means to me – and it’s one of the things that has helped to keep me going through this whole nightmare – so thank you!!!!  I am sending you all a big cyber hug!!  And thank you to all my fellow Etsians who keep honoring me by including me in their treasuries!!  Thank you all so very much – I am humbled by you all. 

This is a list of all the recent treasuries I’ve been included in – with links to the treasuries themselves.  So please, get yourself a cup of mojo and sit down and check out these awesome collections of Etsy offerings – I think treasuries are the best way to brainstorm gifting ideas, hands down!!  I have been remiss in getting over to all the treasuries and commenting and sending thank you convos due to a lack of time, but I will get there eventually!  and Nadin,  a very special thanks to you for including me in 4 of yours!! holy cow!! and another special thank you to Dena from SMArtsbyDena for including me in 2 of hers. Wow!!!!

 Nadin,
Nadin again, Nadin again, Nadin yet again!!, theblueeggevents, misticdesigns, cphtgirl, MysticRealmsArtist, corkycrafts, rewildingceramics, snugglywugglyblanket, anandabijoux, SMArtsbyDena, giftagaingiftbags, cutthefish, SMArtsbyDena again.
