Ok, I know it’s August, and probably nobody’s thinking about Halloween yet. But, I also know that jewelry designers need some lead time for holidays, especially when they’re ordering stuff online that may take a week or two to get to them. So – here are some Halloween themed beads, ready to ship in my Etsy shop!
The deadline for the Fire Divas Quarterly Jewelry Challenge is approaching. (Well, October 15th). The theme of this challenge is “The Holiday Season.” Last time, we didn’t get too many entries, I think almost everyone who entered ended up with a prize! So it is really worth your while to enter!! For more information, click this link. The main requirement for this challenge is, you have to enter a piece of jewelry that was made using beads created by a Fire Diva. So those of you who have already bought beads from me, great, you’re already all set to enter!
And if you don’t already own some of my beads… or beads from one of my fellow Divas… that’s OK because there is still time to go shopping! I don’t think there’s a single Diva in the group who doesn’t do amazing work. You are not only buying quality, one of a kind beads, but you are supporting an artisan, AND if you enter the challenge, you have a good chance to win some great gift certificates to the Divas’ shops! It’s really a pretty good deal!
(Don’t forget, I have some fantastic Halloween Beads for sale in *my* Etsy shop – and they would make some adorable Holiday Themed Jewelry – so feel free to start there)
OK, I know it’s a little bit early for Halloween. But since I sell online, and I sell raw materials mostly and not so much finished work… I have to figure that my customers need time to a) Receive the beads through the post, b) Use the beads in their designs, and c) Get the beads to their OWN customers! (So, that means that for holidays, I have to really get my act together!) This year I was finally organized enough to make Halloween beads in August. I have a couple of sets listed now, and a few more to come, so stay tuned!
