Shop Update and Announcement

This is a sampling of some of the pieces that will be going up in my Etsy shop right after this posting. I've been working hard on many, many things today...

I made the necklace above in the same design as my 'Round and Round' bracelet.

And now for the big news....over the last few months Norbert has been building us a new website. I had the vision of what I wanted, along with the design details, but Norbert has completely built this thing from start to finish. I would just basically say, 'no I want this arrangement of pictures,' or 'I like this kind of color scheme' and so on....Really, 99.9% of this website is his doing. I am very, very happy with this change and more importantly we now have an online shop where we will be selling our work.

I am, HOWEVER, not going to drop or neglect Etsy.
I love that site not only for what it has done for me, but also because it is such a supportive community.

So, I will be putting new work in both shops...equally......eventually. Now in the beginning, though, I will be trying to beef up my online shop a bit more. Both sites will have much of the same 'made to order' items.

The pieces below are in my NEW online shop:

 I am ultra, ultra excited!!
We changed so many things from the original website. It's not in any way the same really.

The front page has rotating images, a wholesale page, a much nicer portfolio page, FAQ, and so on.......
Sorry, I don't want to bore you with details, but you should definitely go take a gander ;)

Okay, I'm off to finish listing the remaining items on Etsy....

goodnight :)
