Artfire, a new way to buy handmade

I have been selling my jewelry on Etsy for a while now and a year ago I signed up for an Artfire account.  I never added any product to my store front there, but decided to give it a try again.  I will be adding product there over the next week.  So you have two ways to buy your bridal jewelry, Etsy and Artfire.  I will also be adding some new product...hair jewelry. So stay tunned.

Gemstone earrings and necklace sets

What is your favorite gemstones.  I personally love them all !  I just recently purchased a HUGE order of chalcedony, quartz, pearls, peridot, amethyst, garnet, carnelian, jade and many other stones.  While waiting for them to arrive I got thinking of unique wedding jewelry that I could incorperate the gemstones into.

I have a large binder full of amazing gemstone jewelry designs I want to turn these stones into, so that should be a lot of fun !  Half of the gemstones are destined for sale on Etsy.  So stay tuned.

Tin Cup Necklace

Tin cup Pearl  bridal jewelry is still just as popular today as it was when the movie first aired.  Why.  Timeless elegance.  Pearls and sterling silver never go out of style and if gold is your thing, then consider gold filled. This style can take you from your special event to jean and a Tee, or a night on the town.  Dont forget the office either.  So versatile !

Here is an image from the movie....and should you wish a tuin cup necklace for yourself, head over to my ETSY store.

August begins

I love summer, LOVE IT !  My favorite time of year...schools over, the kids are home, you can go outside without looking like a Eskimo, the sun shines so bright and the heat is amazing and wedding season begins.

This summer we put up a swing / fort for our son, put in a fire pit and leveled our yard.  We have 6 acres and some areas were really low, others high and we paved our driveway and parking area.  Doesn't seem like much was accomplished since June but it was a huge undertaking.  Literally hundreds of gravel trucks worth of dirt was moved from one area to another, then hours and hours of levelling it out and packing it. We still have a lot to do but its getting there.  We also hydro seeded the front of our property...a good acre.  So we finally will have some NICE grass.  Which also means a lot of mowing.  Good thing our daughter loves the ride mower. We picked weeds for ever and a day.  Thistles are evil !  LOL.

I still have plants to add to the front walk way and want a columnar aspen for the front of the house between the two bedroom windows.  Our house is really tall...so we need the height.  I want to buy some trees for the back yard area and make the fire pit look nicer than it does.  So a lot of work ahead.  We have a 5 year plan.  LOL.  Hopefully it wont take that long.

I did manage to work on some new jewelry designs ( drawings ) and plan to try some out later today.
