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

Latest Line of Jewelry – Cute as a Button Earring Studs

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! If you’re interested in them sooner, feel free to contact me, and I can make you a special listing! (either post on the blog here, convo me in Etsy, or email me…same user name @gmail.com)
