Life has been incredibly full! I got married (!), I started another small business, and I’ve got a fun side job at a nice restaurant too. Plus, I gotta be honest, I lost a little creative inspiration. This weekend I did a vending event, however, and I got cleaned out – not having much stock left, of course, makes for a bit of fire under the butt, and so tonight I’ve alerted my family to the fact that I need to finish up watching Orphan Black and sit back down to the workbench. It’s literally been weeks. Right now I’ve got very little else to say here on this blog – simply wanted to let people know I’m active – if you want more up to date, near-daily things, peep me on Instagram!
It has taken me two weeks longer than I’d hoped to get this new collection up, mostly because we’re still trying to dial in a photography process. I really want to be outside with these but it’s still very cold here, and windy, making it uncomfortable for all and kind of difficult to get pictures of these earrings in the wind. Honestly? I’m not the type to suffer for fashion. So, instead of the Feast of Saint Valentine, I present to you Cumplido, a new set of limited edition designs available for both retail and wholesale. This set includes a new cut with standard hoop style, “dryad wings“, as well as a new, tribal/primitive style geared more toward people with gauged ears who can wear them through tunnels, or for those with absolutely NO sensitivities to brass or copper. Currently these are not sealed with a sealant – I still work in a corner of my tiny little cabin with a family to consider, and sealant = fumes. The sealant will, however, make these feasible for those with standard ear piercings as well and keep them from turning skin green when worn through regular ear piercings. But for now, these are made for[…]More
everything always seems to take a little longer when you DIY – and i do it all (I do have a little help with photography here and there, but mostly I’m the webmaster, the social media manager, the content creator, and the maker). i’ve been working on building wholesale purchasing capabilities into the website, and i’m so close to being done now – all that remains really is going through the items available for wholesale purchase and pricing them accordingly. are you interested in a wholesale account? right now this is for US-based, brick-and-mortar boutiques only who have a valid reseller license/tax ID – so if that’s you, here’s the application. it speeds up the application process if you already have an account here (using the email address you use to order and purchase) – with that set up, all I have to do upon approval is grant you that special power-buying access. From now on I’m going to be putting out sets of designs in “releases” – this way I can simply dedicate a day to all the online stuff instead of time daily taken to add a single listing. Signing onto the mailing list will give you what[…]More
