Over the Hump

The week is only halfway over, and it's already been a great one for us!  First off, I would just like to thank fellow blogger and Etsy member, One Brown Crafter, for featuring us on her blog over the past weekend!!  In case you missed seeing it, click the screenshot preview below to check it out.

Pretty cool, huh?  I think it was such a kind gesture and an honor. :)

Of course, we have a brand new piece for sale in our Etsy shop, which we just added on Tuesday. Introducing the X necklace:

Mom created this Yellow & Smoky Quartz 14k gold filled necklace, as a compliment to the Yellow & Smoky Quartz 14k gold filled earrings that you might remember seeing in my What a week! blog post.  You also might remember, from my Time Flies blog post, that we used our psychic skills (lol) to predict the comeback of the Y necklace.  Now, we've put our own spin on that classic design!  After creating the center connector, mom decided to hang two dangles from it, instead of one.   Then, we realized her design really formed an X, rather than a Y...and thus the X necklace was born, haha!

Moving on to other good stuff, I woke up to a nice surprise this morning, when I checked Facebook.  We have 2 new custom orders!!  They're for a friend who previously commissioned us to make these earrings for his girlfriend (so sweet):

Aren't they beautiful?  Now, we get to design a necklace and an anklet using the same color combo!  If you want to see the finished products, check back soon, as I plan to share them on another blog post in the very near future.

Lastly, can't forget the upcoming holiday weekend!  We're got a lot planned, but I'm especially looking forward to checking out the Bead & Mercantile Show that is coming into town.  Who knows what kind of goodies we'll find!  I'm going to post pics from our haul afterward, so don't forget to pop in and take a peak.  :)
