Black Friday – Cyber Monday Discount Codes / new jewellery

So, it’s Black Friday – Cyber Monday weekend, which means it’s time to offer some discounts.  I’m keeping it simple and offering 20% off all jewellery and all beads. The coupon code you need to enter when you check out is: BLACKCYBER20. !! And it’s active right now !! – through till the end of Monday, 1st December. This will be the last sale I have before Christmas, so if you’ve had your eye on something, now would be a good time to go shopping. The bead shop isn’t as full as I’d like but there’s still a couple of pages of items up for grabs. There are lots of pieces in the jewellery shop. They’ll soon be joined by this lot. I’ve been busy making winter-y pieces, partly in preparation for the Christmas market in Frome.  If you’d like any of these pieces listing now so you can take advantage of the code when paying, do let me know, via Etsy or Facebook.

When it gets to this time of year I just want everything white.

ice collar 1(ceramic spikes – Scorched Earth; porcelain spines – Something to do Beads)

It would be nice if the background of my photos was white but the winter light won’t allow it.  The spike craze lasts through every season…  I’m a bit taken with this next bracelet; If it doesn’t sell I won’t be too upset.

Feather white 1

This last bracelet is super simple and not terribly innovative (not that I claim that anything I make is at all innovative), but it’s just so pretty, and pretty darn gift-able too, I reckon. Again:

I’ve made quite a few bracelets in the last day or so.  I thought this button was a fox; turns out it’s a wolf.

And here’s a definite departure from all that white.

I’m kinda taken with the next bracelet too… There’s some vintage beauties in it which the supplier doesn’t have in stock anymore.

I can’t decide whether I like the pink wheels on these tip earrings. Opinions would be appreciated:

And that’s the lot. As I said, I’m happy to list any of these if you want to use the discount code – BLACKCYBER20 – to get 20% off.  And here’s a link to the bead shop and the jewellery shop so you can have a little browse, see if there’s anything you fancy…

Before I go: Happy Thanksgiving to all of you celebrating out there!

BLACK FRIDAY – CYBER MONDAY offers / New Jewellery

With these two markets taking place this weekend, I’ve been a bit unsure what to do about Black Friday-Cyber Monday offers.  I’m sure I must have sufficient stock, but I don’t really want to be offering a discount online whilst selling things full price, and I don’t have the tech-skills to keep the shop open and remove items that sell at the market.  So, reluctantly, I’ll be shutting the jewellery shop on Saturday and Sunday.  But, come Monday, I’ll be offering 20% off all jewellery with the discount code CYBER20, and I’ll run this offer through the week until some time next weekend (haven’t settled on that detail yet).  Fancy a preliminary browse?: click here.  The bead shop is not as full as I’d like, so to compensate and tempt you in, I’m offering a hoofing great 25% off!  And – guess what? – since you’re taking the time to read this, I can tell you that the code is already active: CYBER25!  There’s still a couple of pages of goodies to be had, including this wee guy:

verd copper owl face

Now, I mentioned yesterday that I have a few new jewellery designs to share.  There are quite a number… The pieces that don’t sell will be available on Monday to buy at the discounted price, although I won’t have chance to get all these new things listed by then.  So, if anything here takes your fancy but you want to hold out till Monday to get the discount, just drop me a line, here or through Etsy, and – if it hasn’t sold over the weekend – I’ll get it listed for you promptly.  Okay, I think that’s all the details covered.  Here’s the new stuff – like I said, there’s, ahem, quite a number…
