Last Roller Coaster of the Year

I usually step up my jewelry offerings this time of year for the holidays and I decided to make this work for me in another way by vending at the Eiteljorg Museum Winter Market December 5th.  I will be sharing a table with my friend Lisa Atchison of Touch of Glass Designs

I will be working to get plenty of items made for the show and have a nice selection beyond what I have listed in my Etsy store right now.  While I'm working on jewelry for the show for the next couple of weeks, I will be listing bead sets to help give my Etsy customers a start on their Spring and Summer jewelry designs. 

I know it sounds odd that the first snow hasn't even hit the ground outside of my studio here in Indiana and I'm thinking about warmer seasons but jewelry designers are going to be starting their works for the next seasons just after the holidays and are probably already thinking about supplies and colors.

Listings for the next few days will be mini spacers (12mm or smaller) and glass ring/links.  Here's a preview:

I've been making some super small hollow beads, small for me anyway, and they are working out to be fantastic earrings!  I have some purple sets and another denim set to make up after I tumble the earwires.

Matching necklaces for the pink and denim are also next up to be listed.  These are simple and beautiful!  I have purple versions of these in the works as well.

Etsy Preview


I tend to have batches of items to list on Etsy but to keep myself at the top of the categories or searches, I list a couple of times a day rather than list all at once.  This works for me but I was thinking if it's really the best for my customers. 

So, I am going to try an experiment in which I blog a preview of items I plan to list in the next week or so.  If you see something you like, you can ask me to list it now or reserve it for you.  Now, instead of just shopping from what I have listed, you can see what I will be posting in the future and you don't miss out on anything!

Up for listing this week, more or less in order:

Orange Etch Earrings

Plain Black Spacers

I will have about 5 sets of spacers, in varying sizes made from "earthen" glass.

Yellow Transparent Vessel

Peach Transparent Vessel

I have more I'm loading into the kiln which I will need to wash and match up for next week.  Stay tuned...Thanks!
