PART 1: New Projects for the New Year!
So I said for the New Year I was going to start some new projects... Here are two of my new bracelets! I started expanding my materials a little bit, and there is more to come! I am loving all the new finds on ebay and the internet, I never really started noticing all the things that could be used in jewelry, until recently. There really is so much out there, and its exciting to see finished pieces, and everyone's amazing finished pieces, etsy is a great place to see items, and i recently found stumbleupon.com, I am loving that site as well.. there are amazing photographers, jewelers and all types of artists on there.. and great people to meet.. everyone should definitely take a peek at that site... You can check out my stumble upon site at: http://denimnotes.stumbleupon.com I have so many great favorites already...
My first bracelet is a quote I cut out from edgar poe, and amazingly its a portion of a quote, that when I cut it out, it created a whole new quote "My Soul Lies Floating Shall Be Lifted"... which I love, I think it's great and can mean so much!! The bracelet has a great antique look, which I am starting to love more and more!
My second bracelet is part of an image cut from a beautiful photo. The photo originally is of a very rare colored lake, that is the most beautiful teal blue. I just found that shrubs/trees against the blue background is amazing, and makes a nice detail to the bracelet.
Also I started something new.. If you purchase something from my etsy site, and you blog about it, either on your personal blog, etsy blog, facebook, myspace, ect. and you send me a link to that post, I will send you a FREE gift!!! So keep that in mind if you want to purchase anything, it's a great deal!!!
I have been a graphic designer for almost 9 years now. I love the field and i love what i do. I've always been in the art field.. always doing something crafty, it keeps me happy!! I love anything nature, being outside, exploring, camping, hiking or just sitting outside enjoy the fall season... I just started selling my crafts on etsy a couple months ago, and just really starting to advertise with it. Its what makes me happy, being able to share what i enjoy making with people who also like it, is really exciting... if that makes sense lol!!
I love getting in touch with other fellow crafters and other artists.. you learn so much from one another.. we're not out there to beat one another in sales and exposure, we're out there for each other to learn from one another, and bounce ideas from one another.. There is so much creativity out there, we might as well share it with each other...!!!
