Seasonal Items

keychain bottle opener - $6

Those who’ve seen my Etsy shop or my booths at craft shows will likely know that I have a crazy eclectic mix of designs for all my jewelry and housewares – I just love to offer my potential shoppers a large range of fun possibilities!

However, I have recently noticed that its also good to have seasonal items too, as often those surfing the net or shopping around will want to find something that may make the perfect accessory to their Fall wardrobe, or perhaps a great display to use for a holiday party, for examples.

portable purse hook - $20

Therefore, for the oncoming Autumn season, I tried to find paper patterns that were rich in Harvest colors – crimson reds, burnt oranges, golden yellows, etc. much like the colors of the gorgeous New England autumn foliage!

However, it is not only important to have items that are rich harvest colors..but it is also good to be mindful of each month’s birthstone colors too.  I learned this last month, as in August, I saw several of the Etsy.com homepages treasuries that said “shades of Peridot” which is August’s birthstone…and most items were NOT just jewelry using the actual birthstone, but various clothing, paintings, toys, etc. that were just that shade of green.  So for September, for example, it is important to keep in mind items that are shades of Sapphire blue too. They even have a Etsy Gift Guide devoted to “Shades of Sapphire

Here is my latest jewelry additions, cute surgical stainless steel earring studs, perfect for children and sensitive ears! Click on the photo above to see their listings on how you can purchase them. They are listed in my Etsy shop under the “Earrings” section.

I was inspired to make them when I was just browsing the “promotions” section, and decided to do my first “buy and replace” game. So I bought some of these adorable buttons, and decided to turn them into affordable (only $3.50!), cute earrings! I then went crazy and bought up lots of cute earrings. I bought ladybugs, daisies, strawberries, squirrels, even yellow submarine buttons! I’ll slowly but surely add these onto my site too!

CHINESE BLESSINGS NECKLACES: Each of these have a Chinese blessing, so wear it for good luck and good fortune! Your choice of pendant, each with its own unique Chinese blessing in black script against a red background. This pendant is made from a lucky Chinese “hong bao” (i.e., red envelope), which is used during the Chinese / Lunar New Year to spread good fortune and wishes for an auspicious new year!

***This item was featured in an Etsy Treasury of some of the top sellers in New England, check it out here! ***

CHOICES:
1. Longevity (i.e., long life)
2. Good Fortune
3. Good Health
4. Peace

LOTUS FLOWER NECKLACE: This piece is one-of-a-kind. This pendant is of a purple lotus flower on a green lily pad outlined with shimmery gold leaf. The design of the paper makes the images really 3D, in addition to the glass, it really gives the image great depth and dimension. This pendant is ONE OF A KIND, NOT TO BE DUPLICATED!

SYMBOLISM: Not only is this a beautiful design, but this paper is from a Chinese New Year greeting card, because of the symbolism of the lotus flower. There are many meanings for the lotus flower, one being the harmony and love between husband and wife, continuity of luck, wealth, promotions and children. The symbolism is also tied to just the struggle and beauty of life, as the lotus flower grows up from the mud into a object of great beauty, so is the desire that people also grow and change into something more beautiful. So the symbol represent the struggle of life at its most basic form.

GOLDEN FLOWER on RED NECKLACE: This is another beautiful pendant made out of “hong bao”. I only have two of these, so snatch them up quickly before they are gone!
