Etsy Dallas Jingle Bash!

Kick off the holiday season! Etsy Dallas, who first brought you the famous Beer-B-Q trunk show, is doing it again - even bigger and better this time. The First Annual Etsy Dallas Jingle Bash will be held at the historic Sons of Hermann Hall from 3-10p.m. The show will feature more than 40 local artists and crafters, live music, karaoke, great food and a full bar. There is no cost to the public for admission or entertainment. While this show will be family-friendly, the vibe will be a fun, night-time holiday bash full of handmade love and good times. Think of it as a party - not your typical craft show!

Sadly, Sadie's Things is not able to be there... :( But go on and have fun without me!! It'll be fabulous!

For more information, see our Etsy Dallas website

NEW designs, in SILVER

Ok, maybe I am a traitor to my beloved brass, but I have seen some gorgeous filigrees and components in antiqued silver, so I bought some. Lots of people (ok, most) have not come over to the "brass" side, and this jewelry is a way to please them (and maybe have them see my brass pieces and fall in love!)

These are just the first two pieces...NOT sold yet...

Simply Beads magazine cover!

Ok, one of my designs is on the cover of Simply Beads magazine!! Well, not really. But I know my design is similar, and I posted this well before the magazine came out~check it out....Dolphin on Jasper . Pretty close, huh? But it does show my designs are CURRENT and HOT! I feel validated...:) Just WISH I could get more exposure. It's tough; there are so many jewelry designers out there, so many TALENTED jewelry designers...sigh.

I have a few pieces that I have yet to post in my shop, Sadie's Things, because the photos did not come out so great. Gotta retake I guess...and work on in Photoshop... I am also working on a beautiful necklace to go with the aventurine earrings...

Here's a ring with a red jasper...also need more photos (i.e. better photos).

Dragonfly and Butterfly jewelry

I thought for my very first blog post I would talk about my favorite element to add to jewelry: dragonflies and butterflies. These little critters are everywhere these days, and I don't mean in the air! They are showing up on everything from lamps to pillows to notecards to jewelry. Even Tiffany's carries pieces featuring butterflies and dragonflies. Organic, natural elements like these little beauties bring whimsy to your jewelry collection. And you'll be trendy too! Check these out... Dragonfly charm necklace, Simple Butterfly necklace.
