I Swear, He Came Out of Nowhere!

It’s Easter! And what better excuse for a sale. Not that I need an excuse for a sale, but Easter makes for a handy facade. The real reason for the sale is that I may have had a wee crash in my car.

By ‘may have’ I mean I definitely did, and by ‘wee crash’ I mean I t-boned a small truck because I’m an idiot. So now I have two pay the insurance excess for two vehicles. No one was hurt, so that’s great, but I’ve now used up my entire chocolate and ice-cream fund for the year, and that’s the real tragedy here. Think of the children!!

So hop on over to my Etsy store, fill your shopping cart and use the coupon code “EASTER” to receive 20% of everything – that’s jewellery and tutorials.

A Cosmic Tutorial and an Unplanned Detour

I promised a beady post and here it is! My Cosmic Necklace tutorial is available in my Etsy store,  and one physical version of the necklace has also been listed for sale.  I adore the Swarovski Cosmic Rings, it’s so difficult to choose which colour to use; they’re all so pretty. The instructions are very thorough and easy to follow. I hope you enjoy it.

I’ve also started working on my next CGB piece. I’m not yet sure where I’m headed with it. I’ll go with my tried and true method of making it up as I go. I have also started a second, more personal blog, Unplanned Detour, which will follow me through my marital upheaval. It’s where I will share my experiences, thoughts, frustrations and general nonsense, with a touch of humour. Be warned though, it’s me, unfiltered. If you’re easily offended or don’t like bad language, might be wise to stay away.

A Christmas Sale

Christmas Shopping Image 2

On Thursday night I attended the Hawera Ladies Night market and what a roaring success. There were 37 stalls in total, all of which were small home-based businesses, and over the course of two and a half hours we had 467 people through the door. The entry fee was a gold coin donation, with all proceeds going to the South Taranaki Parents Centre, raffles were also held and in all, $913 was raised for the cause. I’d like to give a huge thanks to Rocky and her team for putting this night together and I look forward to seeing it all happen again at the Bell Block Ladies Night in February.

My next piece of news is the CHRISTMAS SALE! This was intended the begin the day after the Ladies Night, but was postponed due to my waking up with a horrific head cold. I could not even begin to think straight, in fact I suspect this particular virus may have permanently reduced my brain function; I seem to be doing a lot more stupid things than usual. But better late than never, right?

The New Zealand only sale applies to all of the jewellery listed in the Facebook Sale album. The photos have been updated with the sale prices. To purchase, email me at sales@jennysangster.co.nz or send me a private message on Facebook.

Postage is a flat rate of $3 for as many items as you like. I will try to keep things updated as quickly as I can, but please keep in mind that some items may become unavailable due to the time it takes to clear my emails and update the listing, it’s first in first served. The sale will run until midnight Sunday 8 December.

Wet Socks and a Sale

001

Seventeen. That is the most pairs of earrings that I have made in one sitting. I’m not sure how long it took me, I can’t remember how many continuous episodes of Breaking Bad I sat through that night. I can remember that at the end of it my feet were like ice blocks. This is because I had been so focused on what I was doing that I didn’t notice that the carpet in front of the couch was damp, and this dampness had been slowly wicking up my socks. Mr. Two thinks it’s great fun to empty his sippy cup on the floor.

I now have 77 pairs of earrings made in preparation for the Hawera Ladies Night market on 20 November (make that 76, because I just took a pair for myself) and I’ve been mulling over my pricing options. My woven earrings are usually priced by taking into account how much the materials cost and how much work goes into them. This means there is a fairly big variation between the price of each pair.  The most expensive pair of earrings I have in stock at the moment are the Blizzard earrings at $NZ29 and the least expensive are the Little Nova earrings at $NZ18. In a perfect world, I would have each pair of earrings displayed on it’s own fancy card with my name emblazoned across the top, with the price listed on the card. But in that world, I would be able to afford a lovely big card holder display, and I would know what I’m doing. I would also be spending my days on a private island with my lovers Johnny Depp and Norman Reedus, while looking like Jessica Biel.

057In accordance to my budget, I have acquired a cheap, wobbly copper stand, which is not suited to individual pricing. Tiny price-tags hanging off earrings is not a good look. I’ve decided just to have a sale instead, woohoo bargains!!

This is my price list for all of my jewellery on the night, except for bead woven necklaces and bracelets, which are still prices individually.

Simplicity

 

Image 01

After completing two Harlequin armbands in a row, I was desperate for a few quick projects before committing to another large one.

For most peoImage 01ple, intricite beadwork is something that is admired, but not worn. It’s shocking, I know! But I have to face the fact that the majority of the time, people like to wear simple jewellery. Big, bold, fabulous pieces definitely have their place, but simple is for everyday.

With that in mind, I have started on a range of pendants strung on ribbon and cord necklaces. These necklace will not be displayed in the online store, but they will be uploaded to a Facebook Sale album and can be purchased by sending me a private message or an email. I have plans for more non-woven jewellery to come soon, so watch this space.
