A Discount with a Purpose

I have a problem. A problem that I have been mulling over, considering, and pondering for a while now. But I’m finally getting to a point where I’m moving beyond said mulling.

What it comes down to is:

I lack focus.

Not so much on individual projects, but on style, medium, and technique. You know, those things that cause cohesiveness and make things look like they belong together. I am the queen of seeing a new (to me) technique and wanting to try it. Forget the 37 projects I have started or prepped or thought of. This is something NEW. Which means I must learn to do it.

All this leads to a mish-mash of jewelry styles, like:

Collage!

And it makes me wonder if I would sell more if people knew better what to expect from me.

Another side effect of this problem, and the lack of sales, is I have a LOT of inventory. I will probably re-purpose some of the pieces, but before I do… I want to give you all the chance to grab some pieces that you have had your eye on, and at a nice discounted price. (I’ve been meaning to do a holiday shopping sale anyway…)

Buy 1 item, get 10% off.

Buy 2, get 20% off.

Buy 3, get 30% off.

Buy 4 or more, and get 40% off your ENTIRE ORDER.

This sale is through Facebook ONLY. Simply comment on each picture that you wish to purchase, and PM me when you are ready to complete your order.

So, you get to buy gifts for yourself or someone else, and I get to move some inventory. Everybody wins. =)

***While I believe my inventory is up-to-date, there may be things that I have missed. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Support Systems

We all need various support systems, right? Church, family, friends, work friends, fellow parents, etc. are all support systems that we need. 

Today, I’d like to tell you a bit about my jewelry support system. More specifically, a lady named Brenda Sue. 

Let me tell ya… this lady is amazing. Not only does she create AMAZING Art Jewelry, but she provides amazing resources, advice, and information to everyone interested in making jewelry. She has a website filled with some of the coolest findings and components you will find in the US. And they are MADE in the US. Top it off with extremely reasonable prices for those US made jewelry supplies, and you’ve got yourself a winner. You can find her on Etsy, too. 

She created a group on Facebook as a place for all jewelry makers, whether they use her components or not, where they can show off their pieces, ask questions, and just get all of the moral support they need. It is a pretty amazing community. And boy howdy are there some amazing artisans on there. You’ll see stringing, bead weaving, wire work, metal smithing, collage, and everything in between. She welcomes everyone. She’ll even let you pester her with questions. Not that I know from experience or anything… 😉

And above and beyond all of this, she offers FREE tutorials and videos on youtube. Yes. That’s right. This super-experienced and successful jewelry artist will teach you. FOR FREE. She is constantly trying new products and techniques, and she passes on what she learns. And she’s really funny. Which is a huge bonus.

So, basically, she’s a kind, generous, experienced, thoughtful, sweet, hilarious, skilled, and fabulous lady with a killer website filled with cool stuff and a youtube channel that teaches you just about everything you could possibly want to learn about jewelry making. 

Check her out. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Oh, and she sends candy.
