A little Change

Yay! The weather has finally taken a little turn towards Autumn! I am so happy and so looking forward to the months that come. For some reason I always feel like I can do anything when the cooler weather comes along.

I have taken a small advert out with a little handmade directory at mumswhomake
it's only for 1 month, but I thought it's time to start spending a little on getting my work 'known'. Now with the weather changing for the better, I should be able to get more things into my shop soon. Below are the 2 latest pieces I have listed this week...


I would like to make more sawn out pieces like my bird and the Silhouette pendant I sold. I like solid silver pieces that can go with anything you want to wear.
I have had a couple of lovely messages to my Etsy Inbox about my work...it's nice to know people can see the love and effort that goes into it.

There are a couple of pieces on my bench right now. One I'm almost finished with and another I'm half way through. I can't wait till I can afford some new stones. I'm bored with what I have (not all...but quite a few). I bought them hastily when I was new to cabochons and got carried away and bought stuff I know I will never use.
Not sure what I will do with them...maybe I will give them away.

That's all I have to write about for now...thanks to everyone who replied to the question I asked in my last post. Sometimes, if someone compliments me on my jewellery I will tell them 'thank you' and 'I made it myself'. Sometimes I end up having big long convo's about jewellery making with that person...sometimes I end up feeling like a total tool having said I made them myself...I am not sure if people believe me or what?! Other times I just thank them and go about my business. I figure that you only have one life and so you may as well get your work out there anyway you can when the opportunity presents itself and sometimes that has to be through self promotion I guess.

I love the new bird piece. Your work is getting more and more amazing...it is really great seeing you come into your own with your pieces. The cameo was awesome too! I missed your last post somehow...I'm going to go back and read it. And...I know what you mean about feeling like you can do anything when the weather cools. I am enjoying every last minute of the cooler weather before it turns hot here...

Thanks Amy :) It's fun growing in this hobby and looking at where I started to where I am now. I have so much farther to go still .... I don't ever want it to be summertime here again lol...
Judy - I am terrible at talking to strangers spesh if they compliment me...I will always make a douche bag of myself..but I figure I don't really have anything to lose by telling them I've made something myself, it could turn into a sale one day...here's hoping!
