Ok, I just have to brag a little bit... Every once and a while (but not very often), one of my items makes it into an Etsy treasury (where Etsy members hand-pick 12 items to show off in a mini-gallery. See this post). Etsy admin chooses a new treasury every hour (approx.) to be on the front page of Etsy. So, if you are lucky enough, your treasury, or one that you are featured in, could be on Etsy's main page, where thousands of people will see it!

Yesterday, one of my books was in a treasury. Later in the day, I happened to be viewing the front page at just the right moment...and there it was, my book! I snapped a screen shot before it disappeared. Then the book sold a few minutes later. Here's a shot of the front page:

My first treasury...

Click here to see it:

I finally snagged a treasury on Etsy! For those who do not know what that is, I will explain: A treasury is basically like a mini online gallery that I get to curate. It is not to promote my own work. It is for me to show off the beautiful creations of other Etsians. I have carefully chosen 12 items from different Etsy shops that I think are great! And they fit my personally chosen theme: My idea of going GREEN. Please check it out and let me know what you think. It will be online until Friday evening. Enjoy!

Neon Series Dichroic Jewelry

I love this new dichroic glass. Some of the colors are so bright, they seem to be illuminated from within. Here are some of my latest pieces:

Holiday Artisan's Festival

Here's my set-up at the Greenfield Center School Festival last Saturday. I'm so pleased with how much my display has improved since my first show almost two years ago. This is the first show using lights. I found these halogen desk lamps at Wal-mart, normally $13 each, for $5 each because of a pricing mistake! What a deal! It really was a necessary addition, as it added the much needed "bling" to my jewelry. The silver solder and dichroic glass really sparkled, as they should.

Overall, the show was a success, about average with other shows I've done. I still wish to have sold more, but with the economy being what it is, I am grateful for any sales, and for the experience.

Now I have a large inventory to work with, as I have been creating jewelry constantly for the past four weeks and only made a dent in it at the show. But there is still plenty of time for holiday shopping, so I best take advantage of it while I can. I need to get busy listing the rest of it on my website. So I'm off to work!
