Giving Thanks, Even During the Bad Times December 18, 2009

Filed under: jewelry — uniquejewelryblog @ 10:46 pm

For Fingerprint Friday 🙂


Like everyone, I’ve had my share of bad times. Debt, failures, snap judgments, you name it! Through it all, even in the lowest of the low, I’ve never truly felt alone.


I have recently gone through some particularly tough times. There were days when I couldn’t leave the house due to panic attacks, and I didn’t even know why I felt so scared! All I would do is stay home and make my jewelry and wait for the panic to go away.


Then I realized it didn’t matter so long as I found my true happiness. All I really needed to do was give those feelings back to where they came from, banish them from my being. Since the day I realized that, I have felt 100% better. I am not cured, by any means, but it’s getting better every day. And as long as I keep these thoughts in my heart, I know that I will one day be back to 100% 🙂

Hectic Holidays December 17, 2009

If you couldn’t tell by some of the descriptions of my jewelry, I make a lot of gifts for friends. A lot of the time, they are experimental pieces that I’ve never tried before. I guess it makes me feel less pressured to create something if I am planning to give it as a gift because there’s really no monetary value attached to it and I can always create something else if this earring design or necklace doesn’t turn out just right.


I hate to sound stereotypical, but let’s face it: this Christmas isn’t as easy as the ones that came before it, no matter what your profession. But when it comes to presents this year, really the only budget crisis I’m having is TIME! With setting up my own jewelry shop this month, I almost completely forgot about Christmas!


So I’ve got 20 dozen cookies to bake for friends, along with at least half a dozen beading projects, followed by a cross stitch for my mom and stepdad. I feel like I’m drowning in projects!


That being said, my jewelry making for this website may have to be put on a slight hiatus. I will, of course, still be available to receive payment and ship any jewelry that you need for your holiday shopping! Just perhaps not uploading as much new jewelry to choose from until after the holiday season.


That being said – have a great holiday season and I look forward do seeing you in the new year!

 

Jewelry Organized December 15, 2009

I organized the jewelry for sale page so that it’s easier to find what you’re looking for. There are now sections for each different type of jewelry I offer.


I also made a home made light box and retook a lot of the pictures so that they are more clear and less distorted. I think the light box was a great investment – I’m already noticing an improvement in all of the pictures I take of my handmade jewelry.


The last update for today are 3 new pairs of earrings. First is a returning favorite – the sushi earrings made from sculpey clay!



Next I have uploaded 2 pairs of handmade chandelier earrings, one with a sun and one with a heart.


To purchase any of these new handmade earrings, visit the handmade earrings page.

 

Swarovski Crystal 3D Corgi December 12, 2009

I just had to give this little guy his own showcase in my blog! Not only is he my avatar here and on ArtFire, but he has a great story. This little swarovski crystal corgi puppy wasn’t just a whimsical jewelry project – he has a special purpose.


Almost 6 months ago now, one of my very close friends moved to Maine for a job transfer, leaving his friends and not to mention his beloved Corgi, Chubbs, at home alone. My friend loves his corgi very much, and holds a special place for the breed, so I thought the best Christmas present I could make him would be to get him a corgi.


Of course, since it’s illegal and hazardous to ship live animals through the post (not to mention the mess they would cause!), I figured making him this 3D swarovski crystal corgi would be the closest thing to having his little Chubbs in his lonely Maine apartment.
I do things like this whenever I can – and I’m not bragging! Rather, I would like to inspire you to personally think about this holiday season. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Chaunukah, Yule, or something completely unique, try to make someone’s day, week, or even month by what you do for them this holiday season.


Lastly, if you’d like a Chubbs of your very own, his twin can be purchased for just $15 by using the paypal button below. If you’d like him in custom colors, or even if you’d prefer a different breed entirely, send me an email at owner.mkfd(AT)live.com
