V Style Earrings

I started to make a new style of earrings last week that proved to be very popular at last weekends markets - they are a simple V style that hook in the ear with some gemstone beads.

Here are some examples:

With Rhodonite and Swarovski Crystal

With Swrawberry Quartz

and with Phrenite

So what do you think?

Successful Market Weekend!

My blog posts have been suffering recently due to being very busy preparing for the Christmas Markets. Well, the first two have been and gone now and I'm delighted that they wqere both so successful!

First was the BiDM on Saturday. A market featuring members of the BrisStyle Etsy team, this was a very popular market with stall holders and customers alike. The market was a great atmosphere and even though some of us were suffering from the hot, dry, windy and dusty conditions, we wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else! My new style V earrings, still yet to be photographed, proved to be popular, leaving me frantically making some more that night for the next day!

So on to Sunday and the YDM at Southbank. Again, this proved to be a very successful market - in fact, it was my best ever! Again the V earrings were popular as were my cocktail rings - both of which would have made great stocking fillers.

So now on to the 13th and the Boutique Market at Portside Wharf Hamilton!

So Exciting - Exotica up for Votes!

I was very excited today to realise that my Exotica and Amethyst necklace had been nominated and included in the Etsy Blog Voter for this week!

Each week the Etsy blog (The Storque) has a theme for which items are nominated. So many of the nominated items are then put up for the Etsy community to vote for.

Well, the theme for this week was luxury items costing more than $500. One of my fellow Jet team members nominated my Exotica necklace and it was included!

I would love it if you could vote for me - here's the link: Vote Here

Byz Cross Weave Bracelet

Another of my new chainmaille bracelets - this one is my own weave made by playing around with the Byzantine weave. Each links forms a small cross shape hence the name I have given it for the moment. It is fastened with a lovely moonstone clasp.
