Crystal sun earrings

Check out the new items I added to my Etsy shop on Friday!  These two pairs of earrings are perfect for the confident and modern woman.  The large Swarovski crystal sun pendants glitter beautifully in rich shades of blue and green or purple and blue.  I love the simple shape of the sun pendants because it doesn’t distract from the saturated colors and serious sparkle that will catch everyone’s eye!  The pendants are attached to sterling silver fishhook earwires using antiqued sterling silver ice pick bails.  Visit my Etsy shop today to learn more about these lovely earrings!

Crafter Central weekend showcase

Great news!  My Etsy shop will be featured in an online showcase hosted by the friendly folks at Crafter Central from Saturday, March 14 to Sunday, March 15.  The showcase will highlight ten artists and their unique handmade products.  The best part about a virtual craft fair is that you don’t have to feel self conscious about shopping in your pajamas!

To thank customers for visiting the showcase and for spreading the word on social media, I will be offering this pair of earrings as a door prize to one lucky winner.  Watch for my blog post on Saturday to learn how to enter the door prize drawing.

In designing these earrings, I wanted to play with a fresh minty green and teal blue color palette rather than my typical purples, pinks, and reds.  This pair is made with 8 mm mint alabaster Swarovski crystal cubes, 6 mm blue zircon Swarovski crystal bicones, and silver plated spacers, headpins, and earwires.  Though not shown here, I will also include two flexible clear plastic ear nuts to keep the earrings securely in place.

After the showcase has ended, I will contact the winner for his or her mailing address and will ship out the earrings as quickly as possible.  Please visit the Crafter Central online showcase this weekend to see all of the featured artists and their amazing work!

Brand spanking new!

Over the past two months, I’ve spent countless hours working on my Etsy shop.  It’s exhausting!  From adding photos to freshening up descriptions to tweaking tags and titles for better search placement, my head spins from it all!  I’m crossing my fingers that this enormous effort will lead to greater visibility for my shop, especially in the super saturated jewelry category.  It’s just so hard to be found in a sea of other pieces!!  I also listed several new products recently that I thought you might like to see.

These super sleek dangle earrings are perfect for the modern woman.  The slender Swarovski crystal pendants sparkle beautifully in a rainbow of rich colors.  They are attached to sterling silver fishhook earwires using antiqued sterling silver ice pick bails.  I love the minimalist design of these earrings!  They would be a lovely addition to any wardrobe.

I’ve also branched out into other handmade categories so as not to have all of my eggs in one basket :)  These super cozy hooded wool scarves are my latest creations.

I invented them because I hate wearing hats, but you do need something to cover your head in the middle of a blizzard.  They are excellent alternatives to the dreaded hat because they don’t squeeze your brain or crush your hair, but they do keep your head sheltered and dry.

Each hooded scarf is fully reversible with a different color of wool on each side.  Flip the scarf back and forth to match the color of your coat, gloves, or other clothing as you like.

The two layers of all natural, premium wool are soft to the touch and provide medium weight warmth.  I like to wear my own hooded scarf while clearing snow off the car because it keeps the blustery winds from going down my neck and giving me a chill.

I chose to use wool in these scarves because wool is much less prone to static than artificial fibers, so your hair won’t be (too) crazy after wearing it! I designed the shape of the hood to be deep enough to wear over a ponytail or bun and still cover your head but not so deep as to fall over your face when your hair is down.

My latest creation.  I actually made three of them over the weekend, each with a different accent color in the center.  The real success?  Not stabbing myself with the beading needle even once!  All three pendants are available for sale in my Etsy shop.
