New items + Treasuries & More

Well it's late Monday night and Labor Day is drawing to a close, so happy Holiday to all! I hope everyone is had a fantastic weekend.

To celebrate the holiday Threaded Chains is having a BOGO sale!
Buy any two handmade items and get the third item half off. Plus you'll receive FREE SHIPPING if you participate in the BOGO sale. Vintage items and destash that I've listed for my mother (not including my two personal destash bead listings) are not included in this sale and are also not eligible for the free shipping. However, as always, if you do buy jewelry and vintage items your shipping will be combined.

The other day I had the chance to get my new items outside to take pictures of. I have recently gotten into wire wrapping and bought some briolettes to experiment with. I made a gorgeous little earring line with this technique using gold and silver wire. I also had some extra wire wrapped beads so I made cute little necklaces with them. I had a minor misshap with one pair of my silver earrings so they aren't available in lavender briolettes yet, but as soon as I get that pair made I will get the pictures taken.



I also wire wrapped some other pieces, some sharp oval deep red glass beads(in both gold and silver wire) and some sunburst color shell beads of which I chose two yellow colored beads and wrapped in silver wire.


I have also started making some semi precious stone jewelry. I work for a department retail store and I see such highly priced pieces when I know I can make something way more affordable.












There are so many more pieces I have and all the ones here still need to be listed. Hopefully I will be able to do so tomorrow.

For now though I need to begin the long process of updating my artfire shop. Once that is complete ShopHandmade will also get an update. Unfortunately facebook will have to wait until my three main stores are situated.

I would also like to mention I was featured in a blog today! Come check it out, you can read the little mini interview over at Hali's Lost and Found. Be sure to follow her blog and maybe even leave a comment. You could be the next person she features!

And of course I have been busy making treasuries. I didn't get to make one today but I hope to do so tomorrow. I had a handful of items needing some treasury love! My second treasury also had one of it's items sell. Please head on over and check these treasuries out, maybe even give the featured seller's a sale! Both are Halloween themed:

All Hallows Eve #2: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4c843ee171ee8eef914b80ff/all-hallows-eve-2

That's all for now. I have a lot of work to do! Enjoy the last 20 minutes of the three day weekend! :)
