Yipeee! A fabulous day to work on jewelry!
The photo above is of Mermaid Cuff, a cuff bracelet that I wove entirely by hand in vintage and contemporary glass beads and couture pearls using a variety of stitches and the prettiest vintage glass button closure. It's available at my Etsy shop.
I've updated my Etsy shop with several new items. Please take a look. http://www.janetkemp88.etsy.com/ and do tell me what you think!
I've also added a holiday present for all my clients in the U.S. -- FREE SHIPPING UNTIL DEC. 12, WHEN MY SHOP CLOSES FOR THE HOLIDAYS. I've added several stunning new pieces at affordable prices. Yep! And, there are more to come. With the economy on the down low the way it is this season and for Heaven knows how long, I've been working on a line of jewelry that incorporates less expensive components, which equals savings on gifts for you, while you still get a gift of fine crafted one-of-a-kind handmade jewelry wrapped for gift giving and delivered to your door sans shipping fees.
No malls, no gas, no crowds, no time waste, no run of the mill gifts.
Hey! You can't beat that!
I'm so looking forward to the holidays! I'm feeling confident, hopeful and happy about the New Year. I can feel the excitement in the air already or maybe it's just in my own head...either way, I am bubbling over about the season of giving, because for me it's always been about the emotion, the love and the family gatherings, the euphoric excitement on all the kids' faces...ok... the comfort food, too.
Anyway, I thought I'd take an early opportunity to thank my family and friends and all of you who tirelessly support me as an artisan jeweler. I've been generously guided in my vocation this year. I wish you all a Happy Holiday Season with oodles of love and many unprecedented miraculous blessings.
