Queen of Hearts Alpharetta Booth

My wonderful talented friend Vikki remerchandised my booth Monday and it looks fabulous. I took these pictures today, but it really does not do it justice. I am so thankful to have such a generous friend give her time to me. It really does make such a difference when it is merchandised well. She brought this great old enameled table top to display my magnets on. She also brought her gorgeous photo boards that she has made from salvaged materials. These will soon be available at You can also go there to see her incredible belt buckles she makes using found vintage jewelry and other odds and ends. Really cool and unique.

Sweet Nest Ring
I have a new listing in my etsy shop. It is one of my resin rings. This one is a Mama Bird's ring. It has a sweet little nest with three eggs sitting on a tiny branch and encased in resin. So sweet!

Paper Mill Market This Weekend!

We are so excited about participating in the Paper Mill Market in Marietta Ga this weekend! This is a european style market with some really wonderful vendors. Each category is very limited so there is a very nice mix of items for sale.
Here is some of my newest pieces. I did a lot of steampunk necklaces and rings. I also did some mixes of soldering and rosary chains, my favorite. Hope you come out and see us!

Busy Weekend!

Wow it is going to be a busy weekend for me. It is time for Lakewood Antique Market this weekend. It starts on Friday at 9am and runs through Sunday at 5pm in Cumming Ga. We are merchandising the booth making it oh so pretty. We are offering a 15% discount off of your total purchase if you use the phrase, "I love the Soul Sisters" when you make your purchase. So come by and see us this weekend.

Also, starting on Thurs. Queen of Hearts Alpharetta is having their annual "Spring Fling." The vendors have been fluffing their booths with wonderful garden themed items. I have lots of new fabric flowers I will be offering. There will be free food and drinks everyday through Sunday (some really yummy sandwiches and tea party fare). Their will be a non profit group selling plants in the parking lots. So come by and check it out I am sure it will be a beehive of activity.

Jewelry displays from Goodwill

On a recent trip to Goodwill I found these glass candlestick holders and clear glass plates. I was able to use my E=6000 glue to put them together. And now I have cute little display dishes for bracelets or necklaces. Also this would be so fun for cupcakes at a birthday party. I haven't had a chance, but I think I will embellish the base with rhinestones, so much fun. Oh the cost $1.40 each, not bad.

Reloading my etsy shop

I have let my etsy store go all but dormant. I have had so many other things keeping me busy that I have let the store go quiet. I love selling on etsy, it could not be easier or cheaper to sell your wares to the world. Everyone can enter the market with their own little creations. Here is a new necklace I just listed. I am continuing to use what I already have. No more buying... wow that is so hard for me. Joanne's and Micheal's stores know we will come to their stores with our 40% coupon and buy something whether we need it or not. So hard to let them expire.

Use what you have...

I keep repeating this to myself. I have such a huge stash of beads, pendants etc, etc, etc. I really need to eliminate half of what is in my craft room to make it functional again. I guess I am a hoarder now trying to be a reformer. Here are some necklaces I just made using up some of the semi precious beads I have. They are going into the etsy shop for sale. What do you think of them?

New rosary link necklace

I am taking an online jewelry class with the most talented Deryn Mentock. It is called the Build Zone on her Something Sublime blog. It is a class for making mixed media jewelry. She shows you through videos each step of the process. I am working on week three and this is a sample of my work so far. I have to be one of the world's worst at wire wrapping. Since starting the course I think I have improved greatly, but still have a long way to go. It's nice to be able to watch the video over and over until you get the skill mastered. Check it out there is still time to join in on the fun.
