New Rings!

So here's what I've been working on...

I've filled my blue/purple and red/pink ring displays! The pictures are not very good (bleak dreary cold day here) but this will give you an idea of what will be available at my next show (which is FREE admission by the way).

Saturday, February 13th
9am - 5pm
Will Rogers Small Exhibit Building
Fort Worth, Texas

There is a LOT going on that day in Fort Worth so come on down for my show & the following:
The Original Fort Worth Gun Show
Bull Breeder's Classic
Bird & Puppy Show
NextStar Dance Competition
TXOLAN Alpaca Show
and the always popular Fort Worth Flea Market

These will all be within walking distance from the show!

February Specials...

Out with the old and in with the new!

As my free shipping special is coming to an end Sunday night (after more than 2 months!), I'll be updating my shop with February specials! Each week in February I'll discount 20 items - a mix of rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings - to make room for new items! I'll create a separate shop category for the February Sale. Oh, and I will offer free worldwide shipping on purchases over $20! It's time to clean house & get some new designs listed. Here's a sneak peek at a new pair of earrings that I'm just loving right now!

A Quick Update....

With my son having the flu for the 3rd time this season, plus a fun dose of RSV to boot, I don't have time for much of anything outside of nurturing him back to health (so I'm keeping this short today!). I'm feverishly preparing for my next craft show - February 13th @ Will Rogers Small Exhibit Building in Fort Worth. I'll post more details soon! I've finally got enough earrings made to fill my display without needing to de-list any of my Etsy ones. I'm branching out and doing some new fun things! Next we're on to rings... I've got 2 weeks to make about 90 more to fill my display - lots of rings! They'll be grouped by color this time so it should be easier if you're looking for a specific color. It's so cold, gray and rainy today - not good for photgraphing the new designs. I know I could use a lightbox but I really do prefer natural light! Off to snuggle with my pumpkin!

Here we go!

It's overwhelming, isn't it? There are so many ways to get your thoughts out there - Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, blogs, chat rooms, forum threads, Ning, etc, etc, etc. But who's really listening? You can type your heart out for not a single soul to see it. After trying a few of these out, I'll go back to where I started - Blogspot!
to Jenny M Jewels.
I've been creating affordable jewelry for a bit over a year now, and have a shop on Etsy that I just love.
I made a resolution this year to document my journey, and here is where it starts. Following along will give you insight into my creative process, first shot at new creations, tips and tricks, links to some of my favorite shops, information about craft shows where I'll be setting up shop, and ocassionally a special deal or giveaway.
Ok, now on to creating!

Oh, here's a glimpse of my 2 newest rings - available in my Etsy shop today!

One more thing - I am ALWAYS open to comments, suggestions and constructive criticism!
