Hot tea and gingerbread is my medicine against this gloomy and stormy weather. I hope you're having a cozy weekend too. Or a busy weekend if you have joined the Black Friday to Cyber Monday sales madness on Etsy :)

Don't forget to enter my giveaway! See you on Monday!

Free shipping worldwide

Wednesday, 23 November 2011

It's that time of the year again. I'm participating in Black Friday to Cyber Monday sales on Etsy and offering free shipping worldwide on all my items through November 28th. International shipping takes time, so these are the last days to make a purchase if you have set your eyes on something in my shop and want it delivered before Christmas.

Happy shopping!

Connect the dots

Monday, 21 November 2011

These are my newest creations. Colourful dots to finish the outfit. And when I write dots I mean the tiniest copper discs measuring mere 9.5mm or 3/8 inches. The dainty chain is shiny sterling silver, almost invisible yet strong. Perfect for everyday wear.

On Thursday I mentioned that I may have a surprise for you. And here it is. I'm giving away one of the new necklaces to thank you for visiting here and just being around. A small Christmas gift from me to you.

To enter the giveaway all you need to do is to leave a comment under this post telling me which colour is your favourite. You can choose between scarlet red, lime green and speckled blue. Surprise me is also an option in case you want me to pick the colour for you. Please, comment with your name and e-mail or your Etsy username (to be sure I can contact you if you're the lucky winner).

The winner will be drawn on Monday November 28 (you can enter until 11:59 pm EET).

I'm sifting enamel and playing with colour. The fun part is that you never know what colour exactly the enamel is until you fire it. Names can be misleading, pictures can be inacurate and powdered enamel can look very different from fired enamel. This is my favourite red.

Tomorrow is our National Day and I'm taking a small break from blogging. Be sure to come back on Monday when I'll reveal what I'm working on. I may have a surprise for you! Stay tuned!

Some ideas take days to grow, but this wasn't the case. I was simply struck by inspiration. Wish everything came so easy.

Copper and glossy turquoise blue. I'm a sucker for this combination. Layers of opaque and transparent enamels. Handcrafted copper earwires and lots of chain.

Long, but not too heavy. The first shoulder dusters in my shop. Already listed.

I hope your week has been productive too. Wishing you a relaxed weekend!

Caramel butterfly

Thursday, 10 November 2011

Last Thursday I showed you a butterfly. Now it's time for the finished necklace. Nut brown enamel on copper and melon shaped glass beads in red, chocolate and caramel browns. And a few clear glass beads with celsian coating for for a little bit of bling.

I didn't wanted the necklace to be heavy, so just half of it is made of beads, the rest is delicate antiqued copper chain. The necklace is short, so I added two more inches in a shape of a chain extender with wee red glass bead.

Romantic chocker with a warm glow of reds and browns for a girl who dreams about butterflies during winter.

Listing in my shop tonight.

Misty air + sun = wonderful weekend outdoors. I hope yours has been great too.

Stumbled upon these tiniest mushrooms. Are they mushrooms at all?

Happy new week!

Getting into the mood

Sunday, 6 November 2011

It's getting more and more Christmasy on Etsy, so I decided to throw a small party with cobalt blue snowlakes and lime green cocktails. Thank you Etsy for featuring this treasury on the front page!

















I hope you're having a lovely weekend!
