Filled and organized my Etsy-store

Filed under: beads,Etsy,polymer clay — by jencom @ 6:19 pm

Today I started to list some new necklaces and pendants in my Etsy-store. I also relisted a bunch of beads that had expired during the Fall. My ambition is to list a few new items each day till my box with items to list is empty. I have A LOT of beads and pendants lying around just waiting to be listed. One problem this time of year is that the light here in Sweden is not too good for photos. As soon as I see the sun I run outside and starts snapping pictures of beads-to-be-listed. This weekend I went out in -12 degrees Celsius (about 10 degrees Farenheit) to snap pics of necklaces. I had to keep my gloves ON during the photo-session 😉 I am a dedicated bead-maker!

When I reached 50 items in my store I finally went ahead and made a a few categories too. I now have a well-stocked and easy to browse through store 🙂 Please take a cup of your favorite drink and swing by, why don’t you?

Happy New Year!

Filed under: Uncategorized — by jencom @ 2:20 pm

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
    The flying cloud, the frosty light:
    The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
    Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
    The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
    For those that here we see no more;
    Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

Ring out a slowly dying cause,
    And ancient forms of party strife;
    Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.

Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
    The faithless coldness of the times;
    Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

Ring out false pride in place and blood,
    The civic slander and the spite;
    Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease;
    Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
    Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Ring in the valiant man and free, 
    The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
    Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.

Alfred Lord Tennyson

Santa didn’t make it this year

Filed under: cross-stitch — by jencom @ 1:27 pm

I didn’t quite manage to finish my Father Christmas till Christmas 2009. I may still have a shot to finish it before 2010 starts, but it’ll be hard. I have soar fingertips and yesterday I even spilled some blood in my effort to finish it in time 😉

I will have it framed and ready for Christmas 2010 for sure! Status-update 091225:

Finishing up

Filed under: beads,crochet,polymer clay — by jencom @ 3:04 pm

Today I have been busy in my studio. No clay, just finishing necklaces and bracelets that have been lying around like forever. I had crocheted tubes lying all over the place and today I assembled some of them into finished jewellery. I have some more to finish later… I’ve also started to make simple necklaces with all those orphan-beads that is gathering dust in my drawers – I’ll promise to show you when they are done 🙂

The polymer clay-focals in the first two pictures are made by the talented artist Cheryl Harris.
