Status Reports & Other Ramblings / new shinies
I've tried working with polymer clay many times but never liked the results - until this month, when I picked up a couple of amazing tutorials by Ginger David Allman of The Blue Bottle Tree. I ended up making a bunch of beads that reminded me of chrysalises, and I really like how they turned out - I set some very simply and others in my usual wirework style. Please let me know how you like them!
There are also some nest-inspired pendants in this update, and my new Emergency Fairy Garden Kit necklaces, which contain wildflower seeds that you can plant! (But don't forget to refill the vial afterwards so you're prepared for the next emergency...)
You can find all the new shinies right here. This weekend only, save $5 off $55 or more with coupon code TAKE5! (As always, orders over $50 get free US shipping and a free gift.)
I just added two dozen new shinies to the store - the final update of the year! If you're shopping for last-minute Christmas gifts, please upgrade your shipping to Priority Mail and be sure to place your order today - all orders received before 10pm eastern time Sunday will be shipped first thing Monday morning, which is the USPS cutoff for Priority Mail shipping for Christmas delivery.
(Please be aware that I have absolutely no control over the transit times once the package is in the mailstream and that Priority Mail is not a guaranteed delivery date shipping method. If you need to be absolutely certain that your present will arrive in time, you can either inquire about overnight shipping - which starts at $30 - or get a gift certificate.)
I'll do one more update this year, coinciding with the end-of-year clearance sale at the end of the month, but if you're planning to give something as a Christmas present, I'd recommend ordering by Monday December 14th to be sure it will arrive in time.
I will be mostly out of the studio during Miles's winter school vacation from December 24th through December 31st. Please allow an additional day for email responses and shipping during this time.
