Keys to my heart necklace

Here is a new addition to my etsy shop called ‘keys to my heart necklace’. One large pink czech glass heart hangs from a heavy gunmetal chain through a keyring holding two tiny antique keys. Give them out to whoever you like!

heart-shaped locket

Here’s a new design called heart-shaped locket that will soon be available in my etsy shop. It’s a copper heart locket with flower cab, each painted white and then buffed to look worn, strung on a gunmetal chain and finished with a lobster clasp. Here is a picture. What do you think?

look ma, I’m in a treasury!

Well, I’m proud to announce that I’ve accomplished something new! One of the items from my shop, La Jolie Femme, made it into a treasury today 😀 A treasury, for those who don’t know, is a collection of similar interesting or unique items people can put together on etsy. Check it out, here:

star*fish?

Here is a new necklace available in my shop, La Jolie Femme. Basically, I got the idea from spreading out all the beads I had and matching this tiny pink czech glass star with this fish bone charm, and linking them together in a knot to make ‘star-fish’. Get it? No, there is no deeper meaning behind this piece, sorry. Heh heh. The thing I like about this one is you can tie the knot yourself, so if you want it tied evenly in the middle you can do that, but if you want an assymetrical design you can tie it off to the side as well! Well, here are pictures. Click any of them to visit my shop.

coming soon!

Okay, I admit that I’m new to etsy and the fine art of selling and creating your own business. So, unfortunately the first mistake I made was to order enough supplies to make just one of each item.  This african glass bead necklace seems popular and I learned from my mistake and now am expecting several shipments of supplies so MORE ARE COMING! In fact, getting all the supplies was not that easy. The african bead dealer who I purchased these from was only in town for a week, selling at a local bead shop. I was LUCKY and found that they had actually purchased a couple of strands of beads from him to sell in their shop after he left, and just so HAPPENED to have these dark green translucent glass beads. I think this necklace is destined to exist. Well, they should be up on my site in about two to three weeks. Will keep you posted!
