Access Hollywood


Yesterday I worked on Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson and Tony Potts. In case everyone didn't know, I was a professional Makeup Artist before I began designing jewelry. I still have clients that I work with...This was my first time on the NBC studio lot. It was fun. I forgot that the stylist there was a client of mine from before! LOL! I have done her makeup several times over a year ago! lol
I totally flaked on the getting my jewelry to her with the possibility in using something on the show...eh, I'm not sure what I make is something RIGHT NOW they would use...you never know!?!?!
I suppose that I started this post to share that my friend who is Shaun's personal makeup artist, that I was filling in for, purchased a pair of my earrings for Shaun as a Christmas present. She LOVED them!
YAYS!

International Shipping


I had no idea how expensive international shipping is.
Well, I should specify shipping in a "box." I ship all my merchandise in boxes and NOT envelopes because it protects the items better. I am thinking I will have to make an exception for international orders. Perhaps I will only send out jewelry and not floral pieces.( internationally) The flowers need to be delivered in a box. They would be smashed if sent otherwise. A potential buyer inquired how much to send to the UK and when I looked it up at the U.S.P.S. site it was $24.00 to ship a small box! (she wanted a floral piece) I think to send a large envelope was less then $10.00. A huge difference.
I haven't actually had any international orders as of yet.
I think it will be fine...in an envelope. lol

New photos


I took some new pictures of jewelry I already had up on my site...I think these are MUCH better. I know I will always have room for improvement in this department! Pictures are soo important. I have yet to be skilled enough to show the true brilliance of the pieces, but I think they are pretty good?!

Turkish Delight


I am still a bit tired but I wanted to work on getting some new item pictures up. I love the combination contrast of the gold wire against the lilac color of the Swarovski Crystals. You will find that I love texture. Color and texture!

These have an ethnic bohemian feel to them.
I LOVE IT!
Turkish Delight...yes, that's going to be the name of these!
What do you think?!

Sick...


Oh Man! Have I been sick! I woke up at 3:00 a.m. Wednesday morning with my throat swelling shut. Totally freaked me out! I went to the doctors today and have been resting. Unfortunatley nothing new has been made in the last few days.
However, I did just have a sale tonight! YAYS! I sold these Jade earrings with a crystal pair!

One of MY Favorite Artists right now...


The weather has been overcast for the last three days. I have been wanting to take pictures of my new pieces to upload and show you all. I prefer taking pictures in natural lighting. I think there is less distortion (without flash) and I believe it is easier to see the true colors of the pieces. Well, actually, I think this is true for me since I am hardly a professional photographer...and I certainly don't have professional lighting! LOL
HOWEVER, speaking of professional photographers...

Today I will share a piece called "Yellow Orchids."
The photographers name is Lana Dashevsky and you can find her work at www.lanita.etsy.com.
I think this piece is SOO beautiful!
Definitely check out her shop!

New Hoops


I spent last night finishing up some new hoop designs. They are simple and clean...perfect for anyone to wear. I have always loved the simplicity of hoops. Ha! Remember the 80's?! I think most of us had at least one pair! I suddenly had a flash of Sade and Jodi Watley. I had to put a bit of my stlye to these...what do you think?

Gifting


I was tickled to log onto my computer and find a letter from a friend of one of my clients. He politely requested help in finding her a gift from my site...because as he stated, "...I know she has bought a lot from you...you are her favorite."
YAYS!
So I gave a few suggestions of what I think she might like.
Who doesn't like to be someone's favorite?!
Makes me all warm and fuzzy.

A New Day.


How I LOVE Spring time.
Everything begins to bloom...FLOWERS everywhere!
If ONLY I wasn't allergic to them!
Ah HA! I have solved my dilemma!
My beautiful silk flowers will never wilt OR make me sneeze!
There is something ultra feminine about wearing a pretty flower in your hair.
Perhaps it reminds me of a time when I imagined things to be much more simple. Plus, it's such an easy accessory to pop in your hair for instant flair.
