And thank *you* Carrie -- both for your continued support and the lovely compliment! This weekend is always a hectic one, but it's also lots of fun, too. I'm loving the new Etsy On Sale API code that allows me to put all of my shop, or just part of my shop, on sale with very little effort. It frankly encourages me to have more sales, because it's so easy.

This year we are going to be here for Christmas. Normally we go to California to visit family, but we're staying in Montreal this year, so I'll be around longer to fill orders and also make and offer some new items before Christmas mailing, I hope (if packing and moving isn't too crazed -- moving right before Christmas is not the best idea, really!). But I'm raring to get going on making jewelry with the new gems I've got waiting here on me. Gah! I really dislike moving. Anyone wanna come help me pack? *cue Aerosmith's "Dream On"*

DI!! Hi there, honey. Thank you for posting! I love those beads, and they make for light earrings. The person who bought them got the last pair.

The sale is still on until I wake up tomorrow, when will stop the sale. The Etsy on Sale page is no longer an accurate representation of what is, and isn't, on sale in our store. I may have one more sale before Christmas, but I'm not sure. Even though we'll be here for Christmas this year we'll also be moving and settling in, and I'm not sure what shape my office will be in, so this is likely the last sale of the year. I will offer 20% off of gift certificates only to Dimensions peeps, so if you decide to buy a gift cert (they come in denominations of $25, $50, $75, $100, $150 and $200, but if you'd like it for a specific amount I'll customize it for you) just let me know when you're checking out that you're a Dims member and I'll refund you your discount back through PayPal after you have checked out and paid.


Have a wonderful week, all!

Thanks to all of you who participated in our sale! Your support over the years has meant so much to me and has helped me to grow my business, and confidence that Adorn Me will continue onwards to grow and thrive. I feel deep gratitude for that.

Most likely our last day of shipping this month will be December 9th, and I'll be informally closing the store within the next week or so because we'll be moving. I'll still be around most of the time to answer convos, and can accept purchases after that, as long as they're not for holiday gifts.

Thought I'd share a pair of earrings I made the other day using some stones I've been just dying to work with -- mystic African pink amethyst nuggets. They may look like the purple of regular amethysts, but as you can see in the fourth photo, when the light shines through them you can see that they are pink, or lavender pink. I have combined them with gorgeous keishi petal pearls and nestled little clear pink amethyst rounds inside of the pearls. They are topped with little gold-filled beads and are strung on gold-filled findings, which wear very well. They hang from 16kt gold plated jasmine flowers. I'm telling you the colors that these tones flash are so breathtaking that I have probably looked at them a hundred times since making them -- and rather than that being an exaggeration, it's probably an under-estimation. Ironically, since I started making so much jewelry I find that I wear less of it than I used to, but I will have a pair of these; I love them too much not to. They were named for my baby sister, Michelle Grace.









Up soon, Ms. Sleeping Beauty...

Thank you, Elaine! These were such fun to work on that I'm considering a necklace, too.

Hi there! Working on shop and custom orders today, as I ship tomorrow morning. Today is likely the last day that Christmas gifts can be purchased and delivered on time in the US (potentially internationally, too, though there's no guarantees). I've posted these totally gorgeous Christmas tree earrings just now. The photos don't come close to doing them justice. My aqua walls do something unlovely to the gold, which is brilliant; the CZs don't sparkle like they do IRL, and the positively luxurious, rich emerald green color, clarity and sparkle of these very large faceted quartz briolettes look dead in the photo compared to real-life. They have post-style ear wires. Thought I'd post them here, just in case anyone wants me to pack them up for them before I mail tomorrow. Wishing you all love and warmth on this holiday season, Hanukkah, Christmas, or whatever you celebrate.

I love when you take pics of your pretty self with AMjewelry on. Those look great on you, Elaine. Thank you so much!

No jewelry-making going on here. We just moved yesterday and I have a feeling it's going to take a while to dig out. I also want to get organized first. I have tons and tons of supplies that weren't organized properly because I didn't have the room. I do now.

ETA: BTW, Elaine, that bit of your headboard hints that it's gorgeous!

Thank you! Yes..that's a seven piece suite I inherited from my grandmother. It's over 100 years old. I love it!

Oy. I thought I responded to your post, Elaine. Sheesh. Just from the photo one can tell it's a beautiful piece. Lucky you.

Seems like forever since I've been here. Packing, moving, unpacking, and taking care of the general business of everyday life have rather consumed me. I'm still not fully settled in my office/studio/whatever, but it's at least workable right now. I will post photos when I'm done and it's presentable.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday -- Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year!

Oh! I forgot to post the necklace I uploaded earlier today. It's the first thing I've been able to make in a while and is one of my favorites. It's got a little working spyglass as the focus...

Thank you, Elaine! I was trying to put across a Neo Victorian and Steampunk-light vibe. Thank you for noticing.

I'm not really one to want to go out in the snow. I get cold easily and it's been between 1-6 degrees today. Way cold. Plus, I'm really afraid of slipping and falling. So between the cold and the difficulty walking in it, I'm not much of a fan. But what I *do* love is having a new office with a sliding glass door and the ability to look outside to the back yard -- and from a new perspective.

The old place was a half-basement. That meant that the windows started at ground level. When the snow piled up we got buried. Plus, we lived at an intersection, so the view was crap. Not that the view here is fabulous, because it's not, but I can see the fallen snow in our back yard, as well as watch the beautiful, fat snowflakes fall. I love that. It's also fun to watch the squirrels -- one big and fat and one small -- run around the back yard, and also go to the little bush to eat berries from it. Our dog, Buddy, goes nuts when they do that. He wants nothing more than outside when he sees those squirrels (and I'm guess it's because he wants to play with them, not eat them, but who knows?). This is a real pleasure. It's relaxing and it makes me feel good, which has been a plus these days.

Finally getting my office more settled and I'll take photos soon. Made some earrings last night and I'm working on the photos and will be listing them. I'll bring them here after to show you. In the meantime, here's a photo of what I see out my window. No squirrels right now, though.

Busy day today! So, here they are. The brios are quartz rock crystal and they are sloppy-wrapped with sterling wire and hang from rhodium-plated circles. The first pair have twisted rope wire which has been oxidized, polished and turned into ear wires. The second pair are on circles that are post ear wires. The brios on the posts are smaller than the other ones.















I'm making a luxe necklace that is to die for from a long quartz rock crystal briolette, pearls, spinels, complimentary rock crystal stones and gold-filled. That one is taking a little time.

Hoping to get a pic of the squirrels tomorrow, if they oblige...

These are stunning. I'm DYING to see the necklace--everything you've described is ME!

I hope you'll love it, Elaine. It will be a one of a kind, as I only have one of the long teardrop brios. It will be very rich-looking. I've got it started, but only have about 1/3 of it done. It's kind of white-on-white, with the luster of keishi petal pearls and 3 cuts of rock crystals. Time-consuming to make, but I think it will be worth it.

I have made some progress with the rock crystal/pearl necklace. Still not done yet, as it's a slightly complicated design and with the demands of life I've been leaning more in the direction of 'uncomplicated.' Seems I'm always getting distracted away from one thing and towards ten others. Life has been so busy I haven't had the chance to do nearly as much creating as I would like, but I've gotten some very simple, elegant necklaces and earrings. They are basically little handmade dichroic/boro beads combined with shiny, and oxidized, sterling silver chain. The first are a lovely, soft dove gray with touches of silver, gold and blue-green, and the second are dark charcoal and black with touches of eggplant purple. I have these in other colors and also larger sizes, too. These are small, beautiful little beads that glitter like gems.

The necklaces are right around 20 inches long, but as always can easily be enlarged. I call this one Night Sky...

These are the softly beautiful dove gray ones that I call Little Doves. I'm thinking of having a sale soon. Anyone in the mood?
