More Detail and Better Photos

Here is one of the cuffs ("All Screened In Cuff") I posted previously, but this is a much better photo. The cute little camera my sweet husband bought me on our cruise is definitely not great for taking macros of my pieces! You just couldn't see the gray and black distinctly. So here is a new photo from the listing I just created.

The next cuff ("A Little Fishy Cuff") is another of the patterns I created based on astrological signs or symbols. This particular one is the symbol for Pisces and is in purple, capri blue and orange. The purple is representative of the February birthstone, amethyst, the capri blue for the aquamarine of March and orange...well, that's one of my daughter's favorite colors and Pisces is her birth sign. I've also created a pattern for one based on Gemini in emerald green for my oldest daughter.

The last cuff ("Rock & Roll Cuff") is one I'm not sure I'll list in my Etsy shop. I had a friend at work tell me I should bring some of my pieces to sell at the gallery where she works. This is one of the cuffs I think could go over really well in the area where the gallery is located (an artsy college town). I can also charge for it differently than I do on Etsy. I think I would really like to give this selling option a shot. I need to sell more than I have been on Etsy and this might be the place to do it.

A Few New Things

Here are some new cuffs that I've recently finished. I've been hooked on the RAW technique lately and having fun embellishing them, too. (OK, so these aren't embellished, but I do like embellishing them!) The multi-colored peyote cuff is a special order for a birthday gift. The symbol is for Virgo & I've used the colors that sapphires (September's birthstone) come in! I don't know how well she liked it yet, but I'll hopefully see her tomorrow night. It was fun to do, though!

Back to Reality

I'll be posting more photos, but here's a couple...the first is one of the 10 zip-lines we did and the other is of the four travelers when we finished our excursion! It was SO fun! We wanted to go again!
