Something A Little Bit Different

Predominately the items that I currently create are centred around charms and macrame jewellery. So I thought I would add something a little bit different in to my Etsy store….

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).

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.

Monday Update – Flower Pendants & Magnetic Hematite Bracelets

As I stated in this post last month, I am adding a range of silver plated jewellery to my shop. The first items are crystal glass beads that I’ve wire wrapped to create flower shapes and added to a chain to create these lovely unique flower pendants.

Tuesday Treasury – Summer White

Rain, sun, rain, sun, rain, sun… It’s been a typical British summer, so I’ve created a couple of treasuries that are perfect summer colours.

Tuesday Treasury – Wedding Season

June is traditionally part of the wedding season. So this week, I decided to make some treasuries with a wedding theme. Not the typical white wedding, but the more colourful kind.

Monday Update – New Items & Product Ideas

Firstly, I’ve managed to get caught up on taking item photographs, so I’ve got a number of new items listed in my Etsy shop. Plus, there will be more new jewellery items to come over the next couple of weeks.

New Product Lines

I’ve decided to add a range of cheaper products to the items that I sell. Whilst I’ve had quite a number of people tell me my jewellery is lovely, creating it using sterling silver is probably a tad too expensive for some people to treat themselves to (given the current economic climate). So I will be adding a range of silver plated jewellery for those that wish to have lovely handmade jewellery, but without the price tag of the sterling silver.

Plus, I’m really excited to announce a line of bookmarks that I will be showcasing in the next couple of weeks, which complements my jewellery items. The bookmarks can be personalised with a person’s name, which makes them perfect for gift giving!
