New Treasury - Hello Today

This is the first time I got a treasury on T-West. Not sure how the two treasuries work, as there are Treasury & Treasury West sections, but quite happy to get it and feature some lovely items some of which are made by other Jet team members.

Misty - florals & jewellery

Was looking out to the hills & the sea this morning and decided to go with a 'misty' theme, then began thinking of spring and the flowers came up, then, for some unexplained reason, jewellery popped into my head ... ;) So here we go, not exactly sure where I'm going with this one, but hope you enjoy it.

The shot of the FP

Yey! Another FP appearance!

My S i l v e r D r o p s were featured alongside the work of other JET group members in this treasury by cooljewelryJR that made all the way to the Front Page on Etsy!

Straining fingers

In the last few days I got to thinking that I somewhat was avoiding doing the kind of earrings I just adore, mainly because these types of design require sacrificing your fingers and your eyes and a lifetime of hours. Well, I took a plunge and for a few days straight disciplined myself enough to sit down and get some of them done.
Each silver part is handcrafted, put together, wired together, oxidized etc by my own hands. Terribly time consuming, especially with all those tiny 2mm-can-hardly-see-them-going-blind beads. No nails left after all that metal-working, but I'm pretty satisfied with the result. Here they are:
PS. I must have enjoyed doing them - I'm working on similarly complex designs in gold now :)

Valentines Special

Thought to run my first weekend promotion on Valentines. During this long weekend - from Friday 13th until the end of Sunday 15th (time differences allowed) if you purchase anything from my Etsy shop and your repurchase totals $100 or more (after the 10% discount below) you'll get one pair of the N a u g h t y H a l o earrings in your choice of colour. Just type 'Happy Valentines' in the notes to the seller at the checkout.
You can still get advantage of 10% off when you buy 2 items or more. After purchasing on Etsy and selecting method of payment as PayPal, please wait for a revised invoice before paying by PayPal. Please let me know which email to send the invoice to if different from that supplied by Etsy.

Here are the beauties you can get:

Walks & jewellery

I cannot believe how long it's been since my last post! I did spend the time rather well though :) There are plenty of walks on Arran and I'm taking full advantage of that so if I'm absent from Blogger, or Etsy, or Flickr, or Facebook you know I'm probably either at the beach or up a hill. That said, I've also been creating like mad in the last week or so and my head is still buzzing with lots of ideas, although my fingers are taking a strain. I've been posting some (quite a few) new items on Etsy and there are still plenty to come. Needless to say that the two tables that I have for jewellery making are completely covered in wires, beads, soldering equipment, polishing equipment, drilling equipment, oh yes, and did I mention beads? Lots of them. Here are a few pics:
