a question on my facebook page.. https://www.facebook.com/Glasstwig if anybody wants to join in their welcome… thanks….
I have been thinking about it for a while and have decided that it is time to make some changes.
Finding a selling plattform for the english market has not been easy, being in germany I am not allowed to sell on some makets.
So anyway, the news is that there is now an etsy shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/Glasstwig
Why I didn’t do that in the first place? I have no idea.
The artfire shop and the zibbet shop will remain sort of active, at least for a while. However the number of articles in these shop has gone done quite a bit and I will be concentrating on the etsy shop for now, making sure it is stocked with lots of beautiful handmade jewellery.
So my main online shops, apart from www.glasstwig.com will be DaWanda and etsy. If you would like to me to move a piece of jewellery from one shop to another, because you prefer to buy through another plattform, no problem, just email me and I will move things as quickly as possible. We will see how it goes.
So, after a short and not so voluntary break, I’m back. Sometimes things don’t go the way we plan them. Not always a bad thing.
Been working on some new earrings and lots of other stuff, the work area looks like a right mess again, as long as I can find what I need, that’s ok with me.
Here are some of the new earrings. There is also a red version with coral gems. There is also more resin stuff sitting on myself, waiting for that to cure before I move it and get dust on it. The earrings can be found in the shop www.glasstwig.com. I have also added some items to the sale category and every now and again there is ‘special’.
At last – – they made it. The parcel with the new, bright wonderful glass has arrived. It’s all Bullseye Glass.
The first pieces are already in the kiln. These are of course just test pieces to see if they turn into cabochons that can actually be used and look the way I want them to. I have even written down the firing schedule for a change, just to make sure I get the exact same program again if I need it. Not that that was easy, too much information from all sides, will have to dry and see if it works for what I want it. If everything turns out the way it is supposed to, I will be making for bright summer cabochons to add to some of my metal clay jewellery and maybe just some glass jewellery. Here is some of the glass that will be going into the kiln. I’ll post a short update about how the test went and what pieces will be worked on. If things don’t turn out the way they should, it will be a post on what not to do or how to avoid things.
Oh dear, was going to finish some silver and glass rings this week. But for some reason the delivery people have been driving around with my parcel for the past 5 days. Hhhmm, maybe they want to test the stuff first. So, have been working with the glass I have. I like these colours, they are nice and bright, but there are even nicer ones (I think) coming. As soon as they get here I will turn some into glass cabochons and then add them to some silver rings and pendants. The parcel has to get here at some stage, right?
Here are some of the pieces I still have. A lot of them are doing turns in a tumbler right now.
OK, I admit, I’m a little slow, or maybe just busy, yeah – busy. But, even I have finally managed to setup a facebook business page. I’ve added a couple of photos and will keep adding status updates. The long stuff I will keep for the blog. If you would like to have a look here is the link. Thank you.
Zibbet.com. I have just added some of my handmade jewellery items to this site. There is also a link on the right to my Zibbet shop. I really like this site, it is very clear/organized and straight forward and orders can be placed through PayPal. If you want to have a look please go to www.zibbet.com/GlasstwigJewellery
I’m still adding items, if you prefer to order through this site and cannot find your item, please have a look later, the list will be expanding slowly. Thanks.
