bits and bobbles

i finally got my tremendous check in the mail, and after depositing it today made a beeline for the powderhorn trading company with the intention of spending lots of money.  thankfully, their prices are far lower and their selection far better than our local joann’s, and i was able to get out of there after spending only $20.  one of my favorite parts about the store is the “fill a bag for $3” option.  i found a lot of tiny matching beads that i then used to make earrings.




i really enjoy the ease of working with etsy.  i’ve tried other sites like bonanza, but you don’t get the exposure like you do on etsy.  now that i’m learning to take better photos (i still haven’t perfected it, unfortunately) i’m feeling more confident about my store.  i can’t wait to have more things to sell so i can start getting the word out.  i have a showcase slot scheduled for my birthday- here’s to hoping!

time for bed.  my new school mentor is calling in the morning, and i have to be awake for it, which means i have to be to bed before midnight.  cheers everyone.

making pretty things!

i am proud to announce the opening of my new etsy shop, whispering birds.  i’ve thought a long time about expanding to make more jewelry, but my other etsy shop focuses mostly on handmade bags and dreadlocks tams, and i didn’t want to interrupt the flow of that.  that shop has its own feel, and whispering birds will be all about beautiful, earthy jewelry.

here are three pendants i wrapped last night!  i’m really enjoying this a lot.  i didn’t know when i started that i would fall in love with jewelry making.  i’m hoping i can get better at it so i can make my design ideas a reality.
