Purple Wyvern Jewels On The High Street!

As of last Saturday, Purple Wyvern Jewels can be found on the high street. A selection of my jewellery and bookmark items can be found in the Community Pop Up Shop located in the High Chelmer Shopping Centre in Chelmsford, UK.

The Community Pop Up Shop, makes use of an empty retail shop whilst raising money for charity and giving local artists and crafts people an opportunity to show off their items to a wider audience. The Community Pop Up Shop was originally open back in March, and had expected to be only open for two weeks due to lease reasons, but ended up running for eight weeks, before having to close. It’s now back again in a slightly different location within the High Chelmer Shopping Centre and this time I’ve taken the opportunity to showcase some of my creations there. (I don’t have any photos of the shop to share, as I forgot to take my camera with me, so will hopefully add a picture or two when I next pop by the shop.)

Included amongst my jewellery items, are some children’s bracelets that aren’t currently available elsewhere. My little boy, has been asking for some time now for me to make some jewellery for him, which I finally got around to a little while ago. The elastic bracelet I made for him, is made from plastic beads in white, with teal and a splash of orange and yellow being in sparkly glittery colours. Here’s my little boy even being a willing model for me:

Monday Update – Event & New Items

I’ve got another event lined up for me to attend. It’s the Bastille Day Fair taking place at Hockley & Hawkwell Methodist Church in Hockley, Essex (SS5 4QY) on Saturday 14th July from 10am – 1pm.

I’m hoping that it will be a good day for all concerned, with some nice sunny weather – we can wish given how changeable the weather has been here recently. I’ll be taking along my new silver plated jewellery and bookmark items to sell at an event for the first time. Plus, I’ve developed a new item which I will also be taking to the event, and that you get to have a sneak peek at (see below).

Hair Clips!

These trefoil flower shapes come in a variety of colours ~ pink, blue, red, purple, gold/silver combination and orange are shown in the photos below. The gold/silver combination has 2 petals in gold with 1 in silver. (It’s also possible to have black, bronze or green petals which are not shown in the photos below).

Trefoil (3 Petal) Flower Snappy Hair Clip

These hair clips use a typical snappy/bendie/sleepies (depending upon what you like to call them) as the basis of the hair clip. Then I’ve utilised Chain Maille items, scale maille for the petals and chain maille rings to connect it all together. For those that don’t know, Chain Maille is the process of linking rings in patterns and was originally used as armour, but now-a-days is also used as a jewellery making technique.

These hair clips aren’t currently listed up on Etsy, but if they prove to be popular, then they’ll be added there too.

Magnetic Hematite Wrap Bracelets

Plus, last but not least, as I mentioned in last monday’s update, I’ve been adding magnetic wrap bracelets to my Etsy shop last week.

Tuesday Treasury – It’s Summer Time

I’ve been featured in a few treasuries recently ~ you can check out my Facebook page to see them.

Summer time is definitely here now, with plenty of sunshine and blue skies. I’ve created a number of treasuries that have a summery feel to them. I hope you enjoy them.

Rainbow Flourite Jewellery

I showed a sneak peek of some rainbow flourite gemstones back in April. So now you get to view the completed items that I made with these lovely colourful stones. The rainbow flourite stones have a semi-translucent nature to them and come in a variety of colours and shades from purple and green, to orange and yellow. The necklace has been created in the style of a cascade or waterfall necklace, and the bracelet is in a dangly style that creates motion when you move.

New Pendant Too

Yellow Crazy Lace Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver

Yellow Crazy Lace Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver

This agate gemstone is a dyed yellow crazy lace agate stone, that is wire wrapped with sterling silver wire to create this unique pendant with amazing patterns to it.

Whilst emerald is the common modern birthstone for May, agate along with emerald is a traditional birthstone for May. Agate is also the birthstone for the Zodiac sign Gemini (21 May – 21 Jun).

New Jewellery Items In Store & Next Event

In preparing for the Pamper Party Event that I attended at the end of last month, I made quite a number of new jewellery items. Unfortunately, the event was a lot quieter than hoped, and therefore only a small amount of people attended. So now I have lots of extra items to list in my Purple Wyvern Jewels shop. I have managed to photograph some of them and have been listing a few of them.

Pendants

Green Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver

Green Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver

I brought the green agate gemstone in this Green Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver from a fellow Etsy seller. I purchased two of these tear drop shaped agate stones. I was looking for something to turn in to a birthday present for my Mother-In-Law and whilst emerald is the modern birthstone for May, agate along with emerald is a traditional birthstone for May. Agate is also the birthstone for the Zodiac sign Gemini (21 May – 21 Jun). So I chose this agate stone due to it’s lovely green colour, as unfortunately emerald would have been too expensive for me to use for the present. One of these was given away as a gift and the other is currently available for purchase in my shop.

I have two more new pendants listed for sale in my shop, with a couple more yet to be photographed and listed. The first pendant features a dyed purplish red crazy lace agate gemstone. Although, this particular stone doens’t really have any purple tones to it, it has more of a red colouring with some white tones to it. The second pendant features a fire agate gemstone, which has tones of white, ivory, peach and orange to it, along with an unusual crackled pattern.

Bracelets

I have three new bracelets listed in my shop, with one more that I need to list. The first bracelet features small green agate tear drop shaped gemstones, that coordinate with my Green Agate Waterfall Necklace in Sterling Silver and Green Agate Wire Wrap Sterling Silver Earrings. The second bracelet features regtangular faceted amethyst gemstones with sterling silver beads, that coordinate with my Amethyst Wire Wrapped Sterling Silver Necklace. The last bracelet is a unisex wrap bracelet that features tiger coco beads.

Next Selling Event

I’ve been looking around for other local events to sell my jewellery at, and I’ve found a couple that are very local and happen on a regular/semi-regular basis, but unfortunately they are booked out at the moment. Hopefully spaces will become available for those at some point. In the meantime, I’ve found an Indoor Market over in Maldon, Essex that happens the first Saturday of each from 9am – 2.30pm. So on the 2nd July I will be there selling my wares.

Tuesday Treasury – Sunshine

It’s got to the point that I want the last of winter to go, and would like to see some sunny warm Spring days. It’s still quite chilly here at the moment, although Spring should be just around the corner. So to brighten up my day, I chose the theme of sunshine, for this week’s treasury.
