New Jewelry!

I haven't worked the past couple of days, so I spent my time relaxing and making new jewelry! I've made 2 Christmas charm bracelets, and quite a few necklaces & earrings using silver plated chains.. which by the way is my new favorite material to make jewelry! It is so fun to sit down in front of my bajillion beads and pick out which ones look good together to form a masterpiece! Pictures will be posted soon.. if Mr. Sun ever decides to come out and grace me with some natural light!

I've signed up to do a craft show in Chesaning, November 28th & 29th. My friend, Haley, and I will be selling our Etsy goods. If you're in the area, come by and see us!

Ok.. that's it for now. Back to jewelry making!

Showcase Success!

I went to a shopping showcase this weekend at an attempt to sell my jewelry.. and I sold about 10 pieces! It was such a great feeling to hear so many positive comments about my creations! Hopefully this is a forecast for future sales! :)

I'm brand spankin' new!

Ok, so this is my new blog and my first post! Let me tell you a bit about myself.. I made the decision a couple of years ago to go back to college and get my teaching certificate, which I just finished this spring. Now, unfortunately, I can't find a job! So, relying on my inner creative instinct, I thought it would be fun to make jewelry. I can tell you I'm absolutely loving this decision! I'm fairly new to this.. I just opened up shop on Etsy about a month ago. Hey, speaking of that, check out my site!

I'm new at this and it may take me awhile to get used to blogging, but I hope you'll stay and enjoy my progress!
