trinkets on tuesday...

I'm sitting here in my office and it's 2:15 p.m.  I'm still in the sweats/pajamas I slept in, hair uncombed and I have only eaten a banana so far today.  When Andrew Henry leaves for work in the morning I come in here and check on the blog and my shop, fill orders, answer emails, go visit your blogs then I am supposed to go get dressed etc. (according to the schedule in my mind).  Some days this happens, some days it does not. 

I have trays of jewelry waiting to be photographed and loaded, the vintage stuff usually needs to be cleaned or tweaked and then there is the large pile of items waiting for me to fashion into some new pieces which I like to work on as well.  You see why it's early afternoon and I don't know if I've brushed my teeth (isn't AH a lucky fellow?).  I get lost in the jewelry.  It's a good problem to have I think.

Thought you might enjoy taking a peek at some of the items in my etsy shop right now...

amethyst beauties...



vintage handcrafted statement pieces...


crystal decadence...


customized handstamped silver...


vintage native american turquoise classics...


marvelous metalwork...


bold steely designs...


and flowers which I'm always drawn to when I'm out there hunting...


Hope you enjoyed some cyber window shopping - see anything you like? 

Do stop by my shop for a visit sometime, I'm always there - usually hungry and in my pajamas :)

Beautiful- I especially love the crystal pieces- I think as long as you brush your teeth before AH gets home you are fine!

Beautiful pieces!

sarah said...

good morning love! yes i am always drawn to amethyst! and i also love those chandelier earrings...
oddly enough when i suddenly decided to set off on my gypsy travels i left my entire jewelry box in safe keeping... i feel at a strange disadvantage without dangle earrings... but i do have my st. george medal! (: blessings to you! sarah.....

Ah the creative process - how wonderful to learn that I'm not the only one who gets caught up and a whole day can disappear!

Your work is marvelous Jeanette - I especially love the turquoise piece at the beginning and the crystals.

Its so good to hear that isnt not just me that stays in her pj's till afternoon (giggle). I always promise myself to just check my emails, sort out a few stuff and then have a shower..Most days that works but yesterday I had one of those days that I looked at the clock and it was 3pm and I still had my pj's on...ops:)
Your shop is beautiful and I love your creativity. The crystal bracelet is very sweet. Happy Tuesday, sweetie.

Very fun mix of jewelry in your shop. Are those the chandelier parts earrings you were working on? They turned out great. I bought some chandy cyrstal over a year ago to try doing something like that and never got to it. Funny, I think I'll be writing this same post next year when Drew is in full day school. It's so easy to just get sucked into the jewelry :) Have a great day!

It's hard to pick a favorite. What beautiful pieces. I'd love to be able to be lost in something like that.

I don't find myself in my PJ's late in the day but sometimes at lunchtime I find I am still wearing the 'scruffies' I threw on first thing in the morning. I brush my teeth before my breakfast, food tastes better.
Love that jewelry!

MJM said...

On the weekends... I try to stay in my jammies as long as possible.

Beautiful!

Nicole said...

You do such marvelous work!! And it's casual Friday everyday :)

Molly said...

This totally happened to me yesterday and I don't have an Etsy shop to blame it on. I got "lost" online and before I knew it... half the day gone.

You've got some really lovely pieces in your shop, lady loo!!


Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

SO funny to hear that so many of us do stay in our jammies quite a while, and others wish that we could! I have taught home school in my jammies (tee hee) to wee ones still wearing theirs-such fun. To remedy the jammy wearing, I have moved my workout to first light - but that has only severed to ensure that I am in something sweaty for the rest of the day. A trade of uniform I guess.

Will be heading to your shop to order a new hand stamped piece for that new niece of mine - want to complete that necklace you made for her Momma :-D

Krystal said...

you have some BEAUTIFUL! things! i'm like that too, half the day has gone before i realize i haven't done the basics!! lately i try to make myself do them before i get on the computer - it seems to help!

Andrew H. said...

Nice sampling of pieces from your shop. I know that wasn't easy to put together. They look great.

Beautiful! I love the silver hand stamped pieces the best. I think it's wonderful to get lost in your art. :)

OneCraftyFox said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! I am drooling over the metal work right now. Jeanette, you are incredibly talented with such an eye for beauty. I mean that with all sincerity, your shop is a wonderful treasure trove.

bronwyn said...

Any day that you are still in your pj's by afternoon is a good day in my book! I don't get nearly enough of these days any more. Those amethyst pieces are gorgeous!

Tanya (a Taste of T) said...

I love love love that top necklace. Is that a necklace? I need it!

xoxoxo, T

pamela said...

the first necklace is really pretty. tho i am not usually a purple gal. that may change since it is justin bieber's favorite color. HA! just had to throw that in there. my students love to tell me how uncool that is!
b.t.w.
i would like one of each!
