Photo Doodle: No. 1

As promised in an earlier post I will be introducing some new items into my blog. Since I got my new camera, I am continually drawn to looking at things a bit more closer and examining my surroundings. I have decided that it would be a fun experiment to take some detail shots of various textures, shapes, and colors at least once a week. It will be interesting to see how these images influence my jewelry. So welcome to photo doodle....

You are probably wondering what is with this name PHOTO DOODLE. Well, each blog post will be appropriately titled: photo doodle along with a numerical number. I came up with the name PHOTO DOODLE because I see the images as being just that doodles, but in a photo form which in the end will lead to doodles or sketches in my notebook.

Some days I will describe what I like about certain images or how I could incorporate them into my work, while other days I will just post images. So I hope you will enjoy these experiences with me. And of course feedback and critiques are always welcomed!

etsy holiday sale:: black friday thru cyber monday.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Just wanted to give everyone a heads up: this upcoming weekend I will be participating in the Etsy Holiday Sale along with other Etsians. Etsy wants to get "the word out about shopping on Etsy for unique handmade and vintage gifts — instead of waiting in lines at the mall!"

In my own shop ( I will be offering 20% OFF on almost ALL my items— *excluding custom orders and my 80's revisited series. The 20% discount will be refunded via PayPal after you have purchased your items. On top of that.... I am also offering FREE worldwide shipping until the end of the year and of course all your lovely jewels will arrive to your home already gift wrapped so they are ready for holiday gift giving.

This is a such great opportunity to get some of my jewelry as holiday gifts for the ones you love or perhaps something off your own wishlist at such discounted prices!

gift wrapped: jewelry bags.

Today I would like to share with you some of my jewelry bags-- I design and make each one of them. The following image is of my classic beige/cream jewelry bag along with my new logo. Special thanks to Rebecca Stewart-Johnson and Christy Pelland for designing my fabulous logo.

Last week, I had shared with you a few images of my NEW holiday candy cane bags. This is how you can find your lovely holiday packages once they arrive...

While here is how my custom wedding orders will come packaged.

I feel like craftsmanship is truly an essential part to EVERY piece, however, I also think that presentation is as IMPORTANT. All of my jewelry comes gift wrapped for FREE in my handmade jewelry bags and each pieces will arrive packaged in a jewelry gift box. So you don't have to worry about gift wrapping. I am also able to attach a short personal message.

leaves of change.

Just a little update on things here.... this past few weeks I have been dealing with my car (no fun). Anyhow, in the midst of that I have also been brainstorming some new ideas for blogposts as well as my jewelry.

I will be adding these changes to the blog in the weeks to come.
