Well what a year! I have to say I’ve been so enjoying making my jewellery lately and I think my decision to concentrate on Bombay Sapphire jewellery has focussed me!
I love it and next year I am going to do some pieces with GOLD 💛 wonder how that will look. They will of course be more expensive but I think they will look the business! I wonder what sort of chain to use? Leather cord still? Or should I go with Gold chain? Hmmm Gold chain would put price up even more… thoughts appreciated!
I’ve also made a few more pendants using Bombay Sapphire glass that still has the words on it. They’re super cool and I surround the glass with a fancy silver bezel and no backing. Its fab to see it with the light shining through!
A few weeks ago I joined a Facebook page called Not On Amazon and the response was just FANTASTIC. So WELL DONE to the man that set it up! Ok Amazon are great and very efficient, we all use it, we all go look things up when we want something, but this year has been so hard for small businesses. I think we are all conscious of that so by supporting craftspeople and smaller businesses it makes us feel good. So THANKYOU to all that have supported me. If I’d known the response would be so great I’d have made much more stock!!
I do however want to remain making quite individual pieces, mixed with a few easier to make pieces that can be replicated. Next year I shall try a few different Gin Glass Bottles but most of them are clear so Tanquerey will be next!
I still have lots of stock recently collected from a local gallery so I just want it SOLD. I shall over this week be adding it to my website REDUCED PRICE! I shall create a reduced price section so head straight to that to grab a bargain for Xmas 💕 I send all my jewellery 1st Class Signed for or Special Delivery for expensive orders.
These bangles have just been added and would make a great prezzie, I’ve also some jewellery that’s always popular, silver coil rings, Copper boho earrings, silver pebble earrings, thumb rings. Adjustable rings are the answer as a gift!
Christmas will be a tricky one for so many people this year, depending on what Tier restrictions you have. You may even not be able to see members of your family or friends. How sad isn’t it. What I find sad too is how many shops are closing, the high street is dying 😢 people are dying, people are losing jobs, income, and how do you keep positive? But we must. 🥰
So keep going everyone, we will get through this. Support each other as best you can, ring people if you cant see them, do your bit for others and if it means celebrating Xmas at Easter then that’s what we shall do!!!
Cornwall where I live is in Tier 1 as I write this, I have a feeling every holiday home and 2nd home will be occupied right through Xmas and into New Year, let’s hope Covid rates dont rise.
Take Care everyone and stay safe xxx
