I was recently blown away to see Jen's sales numbers reaching over 850 (now over 900) and sent a little message to offer my congratulations of her hard-earned success. She was unfortunately having a personal struggle that day and I felt compelled to create a gift for her as a congratulations and a pick-me-up. When I asked for her address I didn't know what exactly I would create, but sat down that night and finished a most lovely necklace, using stones I knew she liked from a pair of earrings I had recently sold.
It really is so encouraging and empowering to see such great success as hers on Etsy and is completely motivating (for me at least) to know that I can do the same. I am so proud of her and I really wanted to bless her with a "knock-her-socks-off" kind of gift. Here are some of the gorgeous photos Jen took of the necklace I sent. How I wish I could send her all my designs to photograph!
She was quite blown away when she received it, and in response has written the loveliest blog entry about the experience and my shop. Here is a link the the blog article she wrote: Polestar Blog
I was really inpsired by this necklace and created another that is somewhat similar in idea, but different, for my Etsy shop . Here is a picture below of the necklace, called Lovely Lucia.

So yes, instead of a party, I'm have a sale. Can you imagine a better way of celebrating than offering customers a discount for a day??? I do so appreciate my customers, so all items in my Etsy shop will be marked down up to 28% Midnight to Midnight. Enjoy!!!

This is a little fern in the front area of my house.

This is my first Sneak-Peak Tuesday:
I don't have a name yet, but I do know it's going to be a necklace. What are the gems you might ask? A beautiful foliage-inspired palette of green apatite, prasiolite (green amethyst), multi-colored sapphires, and a truly stunning 27 carat Green Amethyst twist/step faceted drop briolette. The gems are likely to be paired with bright silvers, though I've been entertaining the iea of oxidized too.
I have killed my blog. The poor thing has been severely neglected and has kicked the bucket. I had all those warm and fuzzy feelings in the beginning. There were hopes and dreams for this blog too. Visual ideas stored in my head just waiting to be welcomed into the internet world. But I didn't do anything with them unfortunately. A while back I even thought, "I should take my blog address of my etsy site because I'm too embarrassed to have anyone visit here!" I didn't.
