It has been such a busy week! I just couldn’t get to my blog until today. Why is it that we always put off the things we love until last?
First a catch up on my Facebook vs Etsy observations. So far I have had way more interest and inquires on Facebook. I have had people look and favourite my page on Etsy but I suspect these are due to my Facebook presence. (they followed a link) After the first few weeks, I’m afraid to say, so far Etsy is losing! I Will keep you all updated.
Back to what I have been doing this week. First family, after friends, and then work. When I got through that I had commissions to do. A full set of jewellery was commissioned by a very elegant lady who wanted something unique and sophisticated. Here it is:
She loved it! It’s made from champagne gold and howlite with a sprinkling of Swarovski crystals and a druzy black quartz thrown in. I look at it and it reminds me of cocktails, the tinkling of glass, golden bubbles quenching my tongue under a sparkling chandelier sat beside marble walls. Awww affluence. Sigh.
Then I wanted to get onto my third labradorite pendant. This one is a slightly bigger leaf-shaped and golden stone. It fitted in with the mood I was in after completing my commission. Gold and sophisticated. I used antique brass plated copper wire and antique copper chain to give the labradorite a vintage look. I love vintage! Here it is:
This pendant is so sophisticated and streamline. I want to keep it…but I can’t, so it’s for sale. I am so proud of myself for actually creating this week. I thought I’d never fit any in. I still have a lot to do, I have a commission for a birthday to do and lots of pearls waiting for me to string. They are sitting there staring at me every time I walked past them, it’s sinister. I really need to string them soon…before they start to string themselves!
