Vacation and Custom Orders

Due to Vacation, my Etsy and Artfire shops will be closed from July 30 - Aug 9, 2009.

I am taking reservations for custom orders, but production will not begin until 8-10-2009.
There is currently a waiting list (see below).
All orders are arranged by urgency, especially w.r.t. wedding dates.
Estimated turnaround time for orders is presently 1 week.

(Brides, please ensure that you give me your wedding date when requesting custom work!)

Where am I going on vacation?
Our tent will be somewhere off to the left in that photo. (Slippery Rock, PA)
(A little more about Pennsic can be found here: )

I won't be merchanting at this (insurance fees would kill my budget), but I may run an ad or two for my shop in the Pennsic Independent. For those wishing to tag along about the "Pennsic War" online, you can read up at The Pennsic Independent's website.

See you back at the shop, after "War"!

Artfire Cross-Promotional Sale!

It's been a while since I first opened my shop on Artfire, and I'd like to sweeten the incentive for my readers to participate in a spur of the moment sale on my jewelry in BOTH my Artfire and Etsy shops.

What is this sale, you ask?

This is a "Buy 1 in Artfire, Get 1 for 10% off on Etsy" deal.

(Psst. Brides to-be may really want to pay attention here if you want something for yourself, especially if you have no gift for your Maid of Honor yet! Or if you want to go in on a purchase with a friend.... but hey, I don't do this often, so don't miss out!)

The Rules!
Since I have limited stock in my Artfire shop, this sale will either last until all 10 or so of my current inventory there is cleaned out, or until midnight Eastern this Thursday, July 9, 2009 - whichever comes first. This offer is for ONLY current inventory, since I am swamped with projects until mid-August and cannot do custom work until then. (Please help me keep a clean shop, and help me achieve my first Artfire sale!).

Simply put....

Step 1: Shop around my Artfire shop at

Step 2: Buy an item, mention this sale in a note to me by indicating "AFSALE" somewhere in your note on Artfire.

Step 3: Login to Etsy, and purchase the other item from my shop at, with a note to seller indicating "AFSALE" to get the 10% off refunded to you via PayPal.

Both items need to be purchased to qualify for the 10% off, thanks!
By the way.... Combined purchases of $50.00 or more heading to 1 address also qualify for free first class shipping, just so's you know. :)
