Going on now:
Store-wide sale at Etsy.com! Everything is 20% off from now until May 31st. My birthday is this next week and I want to celebrate with everyone.
~Somehow, between bloggy visits, Facebook, and twitter, I managed to eek out some beading time this week. After realizing I only had 4 bracelets in stock, I went a little nuts and now have many more available. I tried to have a nice price range, but found myself caught up in wire-wrapping. The resulting pieces are gorgeous, but labor-intesive. (I just love the sound they make as the beads jangle against each other.) These charm bracelets are a fabulous way to use up odd lots of beads left over from previous projects:
Once I realized I went overboard on the previous three pieces, I concentrated on simplicity and these two are the result of that effort:
Flower jade and rose quartz
Carved red stone beads and mother-of-pearl
I plan to have these listed sometime this weekend.
~In other news: I just had one of my shibori scarves with a functional pocket listed in an Etsy treasury. Whoot! It feels great to be recognized by peers.
~As well as all the other stuff I was caught up in this week, I opened another online store at Zibbet.com. It's a new site, still in it's Beta stage, and it's just different enough from Etsy to be a challenge. I'll be stocking it slowly, as time management is turning out to be my nemesis!
Now that all the week's wire-wrapping has angered my ever-present tennis elbow, I'll have more time to spend in Blogland... so put on a pot of coffee, 'cuz here I come! It's been too long between visits and I have a lot of catching up to do...
