I am testing out a new host. I buiding a new blog/website at www.jewelryinwire.com. I’m doing this because I really would like to sell my jewelry from my own site. It is a bummer that wordpress doesn’t let you sell from the free blogs! lol. I’m not really sure how this will work, but this blog will still be here just incase. lol.
I have decided that it would be a great idea to join my two passions together. As a creativity coach I run workshops for clients. These workshop normally include projects to help people get thier creative juices flowing. It finally dawned on me that it would be very useful for clients to create their own bracelets because I enjoy teaching jewelry making. lol. During the workshops everyone works on writing a positive affirmation. So I thought ” Hey, we should make Affirmation Bracelets!” What a wonderful personal visual reminder of your affermation and your goals. If you are interested in learning more about my workshops and coaching services check out my website www.creativejoycoach.com If you would like a personalized positive affirmation and bracelet created for you, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This post is a letter from Muck-A-Luck Crafts urging everyone to support your local economy. I will be posting this on my other blogs also. I do have permission to post this.
YOU can help save our economy. How?
Pledge to buy only USA made items for Christmas.
Why buy “Made in China” when our economy is suffering? That makes you part of the problem. I know, it’s not easy to find “Made in USA” products. In fact, it’s downright impossible, right?
Nope. You can find quality, handmade USA products at competitive prices. How? Where?
Your local craft show!
It’s really a no-brainer.
· Personalized, friendly attention.
· Knowledgeable – artisans know their product inside and out.
· Caring- they genuinely care about their product and genuinely want you to be satisfied. Repeat business is extremely important to them!
· You are getting a unique product, not a “cookie-cutter” product, mass produced in a factory.
· Competitive prices- ok, we aren’t the discount store, but you are getting a much better product than any discount store. Remember: you get the quality you pay for!
BOTTOM LINE: USA MADE, QUALITY ITEMS FROM TALENTED ARTISTS WHO ARE PROUD OF WHAT THEY DO!
Don’t have time or gas money to drive to your local show?
Stay home in your pjs and order online from this HUGE list of talented artisans.
These earrings are an experiment with stamps and polymer clay. I do like how they come out. You may have noticed that one bead is upside down. I did that on purpose. It is funky & fun, plus it is a stamp and I couldn’t made a mirror image. I think they look cool anyways! lol. I will be putting these up for sale on etsy.
I have been expanding my willingness to share more of the things I create. I enjoy working with a variety of mediums. So I decided a name chage was due. I will still be making jewelry along with other things. All of my craftiness will be being sold under my new studio name, Spiraling Elements Studio! It is a much better fit for me and my work. Don’t worry this jewelry in wire blog isn’t going anywhere! I will be closing www.jewelryinwire.etsy.com at some point in the future. I have opened a new etsy shop www.SpiralingElements.etsy.com. I’m working on creating a new line of jewelry to better reflect myself and my style. All the new jewelry will be up for sale at the new etsy shop.
