I sell my jewelry designs at our local Farmer's and Artisan's market and consign at a local shop. Here are some pictures of past and present designs:
They're beautiful! The first and second are my absolute favorites.
I like all of them but the bottom one is my favorite.
Thank you for your kind words. Here are a few more recent designs:
I'm seeing some of your prices, and I think you are undervaluing yourself! Your creations are lovely, and I know you put a lot of thought and labor into them. You might want to revise some of them upward.
That being said, I want the rose one! I want the rose one!
And some more....
Can I have the one that looks like faceted sapphires? Pleeeeeeeeeeease?(lol)
I like the brown one, too, that has the Tribbles on it. I like Tribbles!
They are gorgeous!! :)
Val, which one do you mean...faceted sapphires? Oh, and the "tribbles" , funny. I always wanted a tribble, that was my favorite episode.
The tribble beads are needle felted beads that I made last winter during my winter hibernation (me and the bears, except the bears don't come out of hibernation to go to the store like me). :)
Every winter, I do a craft that is not jewelry making, it can be bead related, like the needle felted ones, or once it was rolled paper beads, or fused glass pendants, but it usually is quite different. A few years back I crocheted over a hundred market bags, and last winter it was crocheted catnip mice. This year it will be patchwork pocket scarves, silk scarves, some up cycled plant pockets and other sewing projects. I bought a large lot (5lbs) of kimono silk, and some sari silk, so I need to get the creative juices flowing. What fun!
doing other crafts keeps me from getting burnt out on the jewelry making during the long cold winter with too much snow ( I'm not a big snow fan since I don't ski, snowshoe, snow machine or other outdoor stuff). If I didn't have to go to the store, the post office (no mail delivery in our town), or the bus stop, then I wouldn't leave the house. :)
Thank you Gopika, I would like to see more of your jewelry, you do a great job!
Well, one of your pictures had a part of a necklace in it with graduated faceted rounds(or rondelles?) separated by gold spacer beads, and they looked like sapphires to me. I'm nutsola about blue sapphires because they are my birthstone.
I always wanted a Tribble, too! That's also one of my favorite eppys, my absolute favorite being "Shore Leave."
I'm learning how to do soap making, too, which is qiute practical. At last! Someone else who hates winter as much as I do! If I didn't have to do any of that stuff(except the bus part(fortunately, I have a car), I wouldn't go out either! I get sick and tired of subzero weather, and snow up to my eyeballs. We got off easy last year, which is why I'm scared to death we're really gonna get wailed on this year. I need to go find myself a nice little tropical island.
Ugh! I too fear what snow amounts we will get this year....I hope it's not like a few years back when we had walls of snow on the sides of our drive.
I had to chuckle when I saw that you thought I took public transportation, where we live its not possible, what I meant was the school bus stop to drop off (in the dark I might add) and pick up my two teens.
Yeah, that looks like my back yard a couple of winters ago. My Westies like it, though. Zoe likes to dig tunnels through the snow. So does Mac. I see you're rural, like I am. Hopefully, if my brother doesn't go to FL for Christmas with his in-laws, we'll go to Virginia for Christmas and get away from all this nonsense.
Ha ha, rural is an understatement, it's 20 minutes to the grocery store and Walmart, which by the way is the only large retailer around.
By the way, the necklace you like is made of blue goldstone and copper.
Fortunately, we have a small grocery store just down the road apiece. Wally World is about a 12-15 minute drive, depending on traffic. Most of our shopping centers are. Fortunately, Schwan's delivers out here, so I get a lot of my food from them. It might cost a bit more, but it more than makes up for the gas I have to use to go to town, and the less I drive, the better. They don't just deliver ice cream, y'know. Their frozen foods are excellent!
Did I mention there's an observatory about 3 mi. from where I live? Their telescope is AWESOME!!!!! I love astronomy.
