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!!

NEW FOR THE NEW YEAR!!

So I am back, and contrary to plans the laptop has not yet been rebuilt – life just got in the way.  But it really has to be done – every time I use the laptop it gets slower and more error plagued.  Plus I have to install a new Norton AV as the current one will expire in 4 days.  So.  Looks like this weekend will be the time as I have to get out to the PO and do some food shopping tomorrow, and also make a trip to B&N to just sit and browse some jewelry mags and books over a very large cappuccino and maybe a piece of something sweet or savory.  This means I will be gallivanting most of the day, but I really do need to get out for a bit and get rid of the cabin fever that’s started creeping up on me!!

In the meantime, thank you’s are overdue my dear customers – I truly appreciate your support and purchases in this tough economy.  You know what I do when I feel down?  I go browsing through all the awesome feedback you guys leave me.  I get such a tremendous lift reading how happy you all are with your new bling and complimenting me for the fast shipping and great service.  Thank you.  I am sending big cyber hugs to you all because you touch my heart with your kindnesses!

And thank you, too, my fellow Etsian’s who keep honoring me by including my items in your treasuries.  I can’t tell you how nice it is to see all the new treasuries listed in My Treasuries on Etsy.  Thank you for the time you take to do that!  I appreciate your efforts so very much!  So thank you SarahT, grahtoestudio, Denise DeKemper, Linda Hawkins and Linda Hope.

And now, here are some new items for 2012 – new, higher grade pandora style murano lampwork beads, new charms ( including authentic Pugster’s!) and new types of bracelets.  There’s more to come, too.  I’ve been at it purchasing and restocking my supply of handmade artisan lampwork beads to make new Viking Knit and hand strung lampwork jewelry.  It’s been far too long since I sat and created anything – so that will stop very, very soon.  I will be spending less time online and more time creating this year.  I have to make some new and beautiful things for Spring before I burst! 

Here’s a look at some of the new beads, charms and that toggle bracelet – and just a reminder that everything in the shop is still on sale with free shipping!!!!

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….

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.

SALE!!!!!!

It’s been awhile since I threw a sale, and I have some Halloween and fall items still available in limited quantities – so I’ve decided to throw a 10% Off  Halloween/Fall Sale!!  Included are all almost all of my handmade Halloween lampwork earrings, European style beads and bracelets, and all other items with fall colors or themes for Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Here’s a LINK to see all 145 items (as of this moment) at a glance, and Etsy on Sale has a wonderful new feature that allows you to see the original price mark down.  So, if you’re looking for something new for the fall or Halloween, now’s the time as this sale will end 10/14/11, so hurry while there’s still good pickins!!! :-))  (and for those of you with coupons, need I say more?!)

Ok, next order of business are the thank you’s!!! to all my wonderful and faithful customers – there are so many of you now, and  God bless you all!!  And thank you to  shopthinkingofU and rstevo9 and AshnicDesign and purelysimpledesigns and punkytutus and brightrosecreations and supersupplies4u and stippofalltrades doodleprincess and retrovintiques and literaryberry and terrymillsphoto and pasin and earlums for including my items in your wonderful treasuries – which I really appreciate!  So thank you all!

Lastly, am down to just 200 items now left to edit and reactivate.  Some of the bracelets will require new or retouched photos as I can no longer display anything with a PANDORA logo on it.  SO, even though the photos will show a plain clasp chances are good that they will be stamped until I deplete my stock of snake chains and leather bracelets.  I will be restocking plain clasps from now on so if you want a bracelet with a logo on it now’s the time to get one.

FALL AND HALLOWEEN EARRINGS!!!!!

So for today’s shop news – more new items have been listed – lots of fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving themed earrings and pandora dangles, and a couple of Christmas themed dangles, too!

Check out these gorgeous, hand-made artisan lampwork pumpkin earrings, so pretty and the Swavorski crystal bicone dangles really catch the light and have great movement!

And how cute are these scarecrow earrings? Each scarecrow is 1″ and is hand-made, hand-painted ceramic, and the pumpkins are hand-made artisan lampwork beads – just the perfect size! For sparkle I’ve added some Swavorski crystal bicones and the ear wires are .925 sterling silver.

And what Halloween wouldn’t be complete without the Count? Vampires are a hot trend ever since the movie, “Twilight,” was released so you’ll be very trendy when you wear these to celebrate boo day!!! The Count and his Coffin are both hand-made, hand-painted ceramic beads that are complimented with Bali silver turban beads, .925 sterling silver ear wires and blood red Swavorski crystal bicones – I can almost hear him saying, “I vant to bite your neck! MMMMWWAAHAHAAHHAHAHAA!!”

There are also flying witches and black cats, hip hop ghosts, Jack Skellington’s, witches hats, skulls, haunted houses, booga-woogas, sugar skulls, candy corn – so much more!!! 

Want to see more? Here’s a link so you can browse through all the Halloween/Fall/Thanksgiving items I have recently listed – if you see something you want act soon because they are going very fast and I will not be making more.
