Rustic Beaded Earrings  Gemstone & Brass Filigree Drops  image 0

I think this is the last pair of these brass connectors that I've been using forever.  Kind of sad to see them go.  Maybe I have some more somewhere.

I am having listing issues now in the supply shop so I can't get these up immediately but should be able to tonight:

A macrame silk cord connector and 2 bead pairs destash strands...


I have a couple other things ready to list in the supply shop but the photos need a bit of touching up. Hopefully I will be able to list a lot of stuff this weekend.  Go see!

Inventory, New BOGO Sale Section, Oldies

Kitties shown, 6 of 7 and 7 of 7: Robin and Huck
I usually don't get obsessed with organizing my supplies and studio until I at least get the slightest whiff of Spring.  I have been so unorganized this season though, that it's unavoidable.  I have a lot to do.  Last night I started it off with inventory in my supply shop.  As we watched the debate, I went through every single item against its Etsy listing.  In the photo above, the big red tin and clear boxes atop and the barely-visible crate below house everything I have listed in the shop.  It feels so expansive and I can never believe it's all contained so easily. 

Doing inventory, I normally find a few discrepancies even though I feel like I am soooo careful.  Luckily it's usually the case that I find some items present that aren't listed vs the reverse.  That's what happened last night.  I found some macrame connectors:



And a few other things...




I'm having a bit of trouble linking the photos, so if you click on them and they don't go to the correct page in the shop, everything that is old that is new is listed within the first page of the shop.

My friend Kim and I from Fall Hill Bead & Gem have been meeting a couple times a month at my house to put together destash lots and work on our shops, and last week I brought down just one basket filled with things to deconstruct and somehow now I am just swimming in overwhelm but I think it's helping me face the organization task ahead of me.  I have so much to list and I really need to make some space in the shop.  So....

I created a new sale section called "2 for 1 sale items." There are 12 things in it right now and I will likely be adding things as stuff sells.  Right now the regular destash strand listing is included, but only for a week or so. 



Also included: 



Plus some vintage plastic and gemstone.  Go see!

Sale extended and Pendulums!

Only one person has used the 20% off coupon so I'm going to leave it active for another 24 hours or so.  Use DANDIFIED for 20% off your order of at least $50 in my supply shop (through 7pm or so 2-15.)
My photography set up space always looks so chaotic in longshots but it is chaotic

I made a couple macrame & quartz pendulums last night.  I had the cord out and started to make some little bead caps then remembered I wanted to use it as a wrap for stones.  I couldn't remember exactly the idea I had (it started out much like a bead cap) so I just tried the 'netting' technique; I grabbed a nearby tumbled quartz and it worked out nicely.  I intended to make a pendant but it just kind of turned into a pendulum.
Tried using natural lighting today to see if I could get away with it but it's kind of flat and the shadows drive me crazy

For the first one, I didn't do anything at all fancy with the length of the cord and I just used a charm I had nearby.  That one will be a keeper.  It turned out nice enough that I made another one that I'll list (the one with the longer quartz.)  Should be listed this weekend.
