So much Happening! Have a look!

I have had a lot going on and I have been in a few places online this weekend. I want to show you quickly what I have been up to and share the links to where you can find me.
 First you can see I have created a couple new things. I have my new Raven tiles that are now almost sold out. I am making more this week before my next round of chemo. I will hopefully have them in the shop by Wed...
The Toile earring tags are also new and still available in my shop.
 I have also created earrings with the Toile Tags to give you some idea of how to use them. Now, that does not mean you can just go and make the same earrings, they are ideas! They are meant to spark your own creative juices and get you creating something all your own! Now go on, I know you can do it! 

A couple things you might have missed are the ABS BLOG Studio Saturday feature. This shows you a little more of what is above and also gives a short history on the beginnings of Toile. 

A few days before the Studio Sat post, I have another post on the ABS Blog about my new Ravens. Just a little eye candy and all that. 

You can find what is left of the new listings Ravens and Toile tags in my Supply Shop!

You can also find the finished Earrings in my Jewelry shop!

This morning the earrings are also featured on the Earrings Everyday Blog! If you have not seen the blog yet, head on over, have a look around and leave LOTS of comments!

So I think that about sums up the week, keep an eye out for more before the month is over! I hope to keep you coming back for more!!

Twisted Wire Hooks!

I have been wanting to make these for a long time now. Procrastination cost me probably about a year. Part of it insecurity at my ability to actually pull it off and part of it never seeming to be the right time...
 I made so much twisted wire, I should be able to make a couple hundred of these easy! So, since they turned out even better than I had hoped, I am sharing them with you!
 I have listed these in my Supply Shop on Etsy in two different ways. You can find the Individual Listing and you can find the Three Pack Listing. By buying the three pack you do save some money, but if you want to test run them first, try the single one.
 They are made of 16 gauge solid copper. Twisted, shaped, hammered, filed, oxydized and polished. They are work hardened and quite stiff. They are chunky and solid!
 They vary slightly in size and shape, but that's the beauty of handmade! I can not promise which piece you will get, I can only say they are all good quality and durable!
I sincerely hope you like these. I will be adding other things to my shop soon, more clasps, links and headpins. If you have requests I can certainly try to fulfill them!


p.s. I am also finishing some raven pendants this week, should be in the shop by the weekend!

 Just a few favorites to make you smile...
I am taking a break for a few days as I am about to have my 4th chemo treatment, the one that marks the halfway point. I am happy to report that the tumor is shrinking! All the pain and suffering has not been in vain! This makes me incredibly happy and grateful!
 So in celebration of happiness, I post some of my newer jewelry. Pieces that I love that make me happy! Pieces that make me smile! Pieces that I hope you will love enough to go out and buy if they are still in my shop! lol After all, that is why we do this, us creators of jewelry! We create to sell, to have the money to buy more beads to keep on creating! The circle of beading shall we call it?
 All these have Art beads. Beads created with love by someone passionate about their craft. As I am about mine!
 I don't have the energy today to give you all the details of the wonderful artists who made the beads, but most of them are listed in the listings in my Etsy shop, as tag words.
 I hope to return to creating a about a week or so, though it may take a bit longer. I hope to see some orders coming in, it certainly has a healing effect! I am just unsure when I will be able to ship.
 I will do my best not to make you wait too long if you do make a purchase. I may hire my Husband James temporarily if the need is there!  I do have many pendants to list, but I have not taken pics yet. I really need to do that soon!
I love giving you a lot to look at! I know it's always my favorite thing when I am on a blog. I love to look at all the pictures and seeing what everyone has been up to.
 I included a few pieces that have already sold. I do however promise that there are still many lovely pieces in my Etsy shop for you to choose from!
Thanks for all the support and friendship and especially prayers!
