Copper Craze (Blog Poll Alert)

Hi, all. Jay's sister Laura here. (Some of you may know me by the pseudonym Jaimey Grant.) I just wanted to share what Jay's been working on lately and introduce a blog poll.

It seems that copper jewelry has been gaining popularity. Jay has been playing with some ideas and experimenting with copper wire. To the left is a necklace made entirely of handmade copper jumprings, a bracelet of dyed freshwater pearls on handmade copper links, a ring of twisted copper wire, and a rough-cut amethyst wrapped in copper wire with a twisted bail. Below and to the right is a copper collar made entirely of handmade jumprings; the design is loosely based on European chainmaille.

We want your opinions on the matter. Please look to the right sidebar and answer the following question. Would you like to see copper jewelry added to the catalog at JaysDesign Jewelry?

If you have something additional you'd like to add, perhaps the reason for your selection, feel free to comment to this post.

Be sure to check out what's already in Jay's store: JaysDesign on Etsy.

The Prize for October's Drawing

Here it is, finally! We have chosen this charming pink coral wire-wrap ring for the winner of October's fan/follower drawing. This ring is made with a dyed pink coral bead that has been carved into a lovely flower. (The flower beads were purchased already carved.)

With this drawing, the winner will have a choice. The winner may select a sterling silver or a gold-filled ring in size 6 or 8.

If you are not a fan yet, you still have time to get an additional entry for this drawing. Just click the little "become a fan" button in the right-hand sidebar.

Have a great day!!

Blog Announcement and Store Update

There will be some changes here at JaysDesign Jewelry.

  1. The blog will become more of an announcement/behind-the-scenes sort of venue rather than a place to list items for sale.

  2. We have been working on an Etsy store. The JaysDesign Jewelry Etsy shop will have its grand opening on October 15. Hope you can all be there!

  3. The monthly drawings will still be taking place. The winner will still be announced on the blog and added to the list in the sidebar.

  4. Due to so much of our time being taken up with getting the Etsy store running, we have yet to decide exactly what October's prize will be. Rest assured, there will be a prize, so hang in there.

That's all for now. Have a great day!
