Silk Wrist Wraps Listed

Just a reminder in case you missed my post, several new hand dyed silk ribbon wraps have been listed in my esty shop. If you look to the right of this post you will see a square area of a few items in my etsy sop -AutumnLeavesJewelry- click on any photo to enter my shop :)

Also, I have a new batch of hand dyed Greens of Summer silk ribbons I will be adding soon. I'm going to photograph each ribbon and give an option for the charm you would like added. The charms are securely placed so they will never ever fall off.

Also, these charms are die punched by me, hand stamped, using my set from the 1890s (I love love love the font!) ...and yes, even the sterling silver jump rings are made by me.


Here's a peek at my Greens of Summer batch:

Silk Wrap Bracelets with Charms




These will be available in my etsy shop a little later today. There will be many variations to choose from as well...each wrap is hand dyed and long.They are long enough to be creative with the width of area you prefer.

All charms are sawed and die punched by me, hand stamped, by me. (I even saw my little jump rings)

Something truly unique- the stamps are from the 1890s, or earlier, I'm not quite sure the actual date. I recectly procured them and am so happy with the results! I have more current stamps but I'd like to use these as for a while.

Please check my shop, AutumnLeavesJewelry, for these listings.

Meanwhile, we woke to this...happy spring? My daffodils are drooping.

 
and finally...this is how my Ginger Girl usually rolls in my studio
 
 
Stay warm!

So Much Going On!

I have missed blogging and want to get back to it. It's nice to have a place where I can showcase work in progress and also finished pieces. A place to talk about my creative process and network with other artists :-)

This April I will be participating in a show at the Ratner Museum with fellow Ladysmith's. Last year was such a huge success! I'm looking forward to this years show. There will be 10 of us showing and selling our metal smithed/jewelry items. It's such a pleasure to think of going back to the Ratner.

If you live in the area please come by, the dates are April 27-28th. I'll post a photo of our announcement below with more details for you.

Remember we offer valet parking, there will be live music and wine. (The valet parking is a real time saver) There is no admission to enter.

Meanwhile my sales are steady, a little slow, but I'm grateful for every order ! :-)

I'm currently making lovely items to stock up for the Ratner Museum Ladysmith show in April. Here is work in progress from yesterday...these will be in form of rings and pendants.


 
It's St. Paddy's Day, have fun, please drink responsibly (if you do drink) and don't drive!
 
(waiting patiently for warmer temps near DC) :-)
