Changes on online selling plattforms

July 19th, 2011 | Posted by Nicole in News - (0 Comments)

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.

Glass Fusing

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.

Facebook Page

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.

Some of my handmade jewellery

April 3rd, 2011 | Posted by Nicole in News - (0 Comments)

can also be bought through www.artfire.com.   A plattform for selling handmade items.  I have not included all of my jewellery on artfire, some items are only available in my webshop, however I will be adding more bit by bit.  All payments can be made with PayPal. Occasionally some items may be on sale in the webshop or on artfire. Keep a look out for the deals.

If you are looking for a german plattform for handmade stuff (from me and from others) you can try www.vondir.de or www.dawanda.de

Again not all my items are on these plattforms. If you would like to see all handmade jewellery made by myself you will need to go to www.glasstwig.com.

stuck in paperwork. The stuff is coming out of my ears. And of course, everything for the “offices” has to be finished by the end of the month. They like to forget the some of us have to work, at least every now and again.  But I have managed to get something finished. So here are some of the new additions.

This is the new addition in the rings section. It took a while,- varnish can take very long to dry,- but the blue ring is finally ready to be added.

There is also a new item in the “glass” section.  A very nice pinky entry, lots of shades of pink. Both can be found in the shop.

Working on a soapstone ring

Soapstone Ring

Soapstone Ring

So,  after all that sanding on the soapstone (and my fingers), I have some time to add a “still working on it” picture.   Its a black/brown soapstone and you can see the final shape, (sort of),  unless somethings goes very wrong and I will have to go for plan B.  The colour hasn’t yet come out, that will happen once it has been polished.  It has a really nice colour mix.

The silver rings are also being worked on and should be ready for the cold enamel any day soon.

The soapstone cross is finished and has been added to the shop.  www.glasstwig.com
