This week I have been listing ceramic earring charms and ceramic pendants over in my Etsy shop.
I made these, along with a lot more ceramic jewellery components quite a while ago but it’s taken me some time to get round to doing the glazing. There are a lot more to follow including some made from black clay. Hopefully I will have those glazed this coming week.
I find listing components very time consuming what with taking and editing so many photos, but it’s worth all the time involved in the end when my shop section looks like this.
I should have listed a few more by the time my blog goes live on Sunday, but they keep selling as I list them 🙂
I will be back with more ceramic jewelry components soon, but now I have Autumn leaves on my mind, they won’t be around much longer, I’m watching the leaves fall from the copper beech in my garden as I type.
Have a lovely Sunday.
It’s that time of year again when I need to knuckle down and get back to work after a fairly leisurely summer, and make new stock for my galleries; and so the build up to Christmas begins. I find it very hard to mention that word before November.
While my work is cooking away in the kilns I have been adding some earring charms to my Etsy shop. Adding stuff to Etsy is quite time consuming so I need to be more organised now, each morning I get a kiln loaded first before sitting down to the computer to add some stock to Etsy. Next there will be bowls and raku leaves and other gift ideas. I’m used to the rhythm of this pre Christmas period as I’ve done it long enough now but by Christmas Eve I know I will be shattered, still it’s a long way off so I’ll just keep making and listing.
Let’s hope this rain doesn’t go on too long as I have leaves to raku fire before I can deliver the new stock to the galleries.
This week I have mainly been working on new listings for handmade ceramic earring charms, also some new pendants too. There will be more pendants and beads to follow.
Etsy launched the new shop manager this week, so far I like it but just when I think I know where something is, it has moved . They are launching Etsy Studio next month, which is for craft supplies, so this is the perfect time to be listing ceramic jewellery making supplies. I have lots more jewellery pieces to glaze, all I need is more time to do it.
I have also had a few days painting tiles, and a couple of days hand building pots. I love the hand building process and the thought that some of me has gone into each piece, but I am thinking I need to get a wheel so I can find out how I feel about throwing, but it’s a big decision.
You know that pile of beads and buttons I showed you yesterday, I’ve sorted them out and I’m in the process of listing them, I had to show you my gorgeous new glazes for Autumn / Fall 2015.
I can’t decide if I prefer the grey green or the olive speckle, both work beautifully on these ceramic beads,leaf pendants, earring charms and buttons, they are perfect for Autumn jewellery making projects.
I have a lot more beads and buttons to show you soon. Which colour do you prefer?
