Coming Soon! Shop by Midknight

Some people may have noticed that I have a new tab here. That will be the home for my soon-to-be shop. Right now it contains a “Coming Soon” message and photos of the crocheted jewelry I will be selling.

I am working on a selection of “ready to ship” stock, as well as working out price ranges and color swatches for custom orders, along with whatever else I will need for the shop. I hope within the next few weeks I’ll be making the open for business announcement.

I am very excited about this and anxious to get it rolling 🙂


Necklaces… Lotsa Necklaces

The last couple of nights I’ve been working a lot on necklaces. I came up with another style I like, and another variation on the Cascading Petals necklace. The color combination ideas are endless!

I spoke with my husband, and told him that I want to start an online shop to sell my crocheted jewelry! I needed him to be on board with this because since I don’t have an actual paying job at the moment and I don’t drive, I will need his help to get this thing going, to buy the supplies I will need and for getting orders to the post office. I am so excited!

I will have ready ship necklaces and earrings, and I will have custom orders for custom color combos. I’m going to try to have photos of color swatches of the thread colors I have available too. I will sell them in necklace/earring sets and individually. The necklaces and earrings can have an optional silver-color flower charm attached. I also have an idea for a bracelet, but I still need to make one to see if it works the way in envision it.

On top of that, I will be making and selling simple basic dice bags in the Magic, The Gathering 5 Mana colors on consignment at a little game shop/cafe not far from where my inlaws live. I think it’s been a good day.

Here are some of the necklaces I’ve been working on. I still need a name for the new style though.

The one in the multi-purples still needs a ribbon made too.

…and here is one of a finished set in action.

I will be doing an official announcement on when I’ll be able to actively begin to start selling my jewelry at a later date. Right now I’m trying to get everything prepared for it.


Cascading Petals and Single Petal Earrings

It’s not like I don’t have *tons* of other projects going on at the moment or anything lol

This idea decided to pop itself into my head while I was sitting in the van on the way to the grocery store with my husband last night. Of course, as soon as I got home I had to make the idea real and I finished a couple of them today. I still have more earring ideas in my head. I might write them down and make a pdf pattern booklet with all of them for purchase, maybe with a photo tutorial. Still thinking about it though. I was also thinking about making a bunch of them to sell on Etsy or something. If I did that, I would want to get sterling silver earwires and nice packaging for shipping for them too.
