I had to give myself a little pep talk last week…but it hasn’t quite taken hold yet. This morning, I’m going to one of the stores that sells my jewelry and take the inventory home. Despite some promising sales at first, it just doesn’t seem to be the venue for me. So, no more wasting time and money there. Just not sure where to go now. Maybe reopen my Etsy and Square Market shops? More craft fairs? Meanwhile, I do need to get going. There is another pop up market in North Park I’ve committed to in a couple of weeks and I have big wholes in my stuff.
I don’t do much in gold colors, but here’s two things I’ve done recently to share with you. The necklace features a beautiful verdigris brass pendant from the Zola Elements line I purchased at Lima Bead’s online shop. Beautifully detailed and good quality for very little money. Very happy to have snagged three pendants!
I knotted some large Czech glass beads on waxed linen cord and a chunky gold chain that was ‘gifted’ to me by a friend. Finished off with a tassel made with embroidery floss.
And then, these 14k gold filled thread earrings. Which I’m keeping, BTW. I rarely wear gold jewelry, but every once in awhile I get the hankering for it and these will fit the bill nicely. Thread earrings are making a comeback it seems. I purchased three sets from Rio Grande along with some 14k gold filled head pins. Love these small opalescent gold beads!
Lightweight! Good swing! Nice sparkle!
