A Long vacation

I have been absent from blogging for a long time, partly because nobody saw what I wrote and secondly because I have been busy opening another shop on Etsy. This new shop called Beaders Supply Hut is almost ready. I have photographed, edited, entered, and labeled 233 items, a huge job for me. So now I can sit back and tell you all about it and make sure that you chose the right beads when you start a new project.

In the new shop we have 89 seed beads in sizes 11/0, 8/0 and 15/0; 17 Czech seed beads; 36 Delicas; 44 semi precious beads in various sizes and 18 books on beading,
also glass beads and some findings.

I think it is important to mention at this time that I do not own a bead store, what I am selling is the excess of what I already have in my stash. I used to think that buying in bulk was less expensive in the long run and it also guaranteed me the knowledge that I would not run out of beads on a large project. That was fine, but I know now that I will never use all these beads if I live to be 200 so I better make some space for more? Please take a few minutes and check my new venture out and tell me what you think www.BeadersSupplyHut.etsy.com

Talk to you soon,

October 23, 2010

I have been on Facebook for several months in an effert to market my work, but I don't feel it has worked for me. Don't get much feedback and I don't think anybody knows I am on facebook. Anyway, I created a "like" page to see if my "friends" would see it. I got very confused with facebook's directions so I left it when I thought it was incomplete. Well, three days ago I get a very nasty e-mail because I tagged soneone to sell my jewelry !!! I got three more e-mails, a little anoyed with me but not nasty. I honestly did not tag anyone and I have no idea how this happened. I tried to contact facebook for help but since you can't talk to anyone, I got no answer. Now I pray every time I open my e-mail.

I have listed some new items on my etsy shop, look and see if you like them

Here is the picture to the Bargello bracelet

Two new listings

March 23, 2010

I have been reading articles about blogging, they say you have to blog 5 - 6 times a week and always have something interesting to say. Not necessarily about what I do, or about what others do, not about politics, social issues or about myself. So, what else is there to talk about and always be interesting? I give up. I am going to tell you of the pieces I list on etsy and you don't have read it if you don't want to.

The tiger eye free-form bracelet is an older piece and has a matching necklace which I will be listed soon. It has shades of green and metallic bronze and is gorgeous. The bargello bracelet is bright with blues, turquoise, lime and brown and is made in Ndebele.

Hi again

March 6, 2010

I have been gone all the month of February, not really gone, just absent from the world, and this was due to an adverse reaction to some new medication, it was awful but I an feeling myself again. To keep up with my etsy shop, all I did was renew my expired items. Now, I just listed my new Blue Patchwork bracelet. It took a long time to make but I think it is pretty, hope you all like it
