Save up to 40 Percent with Sale of the Day Treasure Hunt in Each of my Categories

This is an exciting sale - Almost like a treasure hunt for sales.  That's right, in each one of my shop's categories I will have a "Sale of the Day" item with a special savings of up to 40% regular price.  This special sale of the day may also be combined with the extra savings of coupon code in the announcements of my store.  Plus you get to save shipping on most of my small items such as jewelry.  Remember, you need to search through the categories in order to find the special sale of the day in each category:  Women's jewellery; men's jewellery; Photography / Art; Vintage Home Decor; Glass n Recycled Bottles; Wind Chimes / Sun Catchers; Buttons.  To start you off, here is one of the items included in the "sale of the day":  beautiful 14k gold filled, wire wrapped cameo pendant.  It's quite intricate and has lots of gold filled wire on it.  Remember that gold-filled is not gold plate and is therefore very, very durable and will not wear off like gold plate usually does. Please read the information, about gold filled, below:

About 14K gold-filled:

Heat and pressure bonding a layer of gold to brass make 14K Gold Filled or “Rolled Gold”. Unlike Electroplated, Gold Filled will NOT wear off. Electroplating has only a microscopic layer of gold compared to that actual LAYER of gold in Gold Filled (100 times more gold in 14k gold-filled than electroplate and will not wear off).

Basically, gold-filled wire is a good metal for a good price. I know of old wire jewelry pieces in which several have actual dates on them. Gold-filled jewelry can really stand the test of time. In fact, I’m so sure of the product that I’m offering a Lifetime Warranty on tarnish (under normal use, of course), or I’ll replace your piece FREE.

Go to my etsy store to see more variety of unique silver and gold jewelry such as earrings, rings, necklaces, pendants, cuff links, anklets.

Handmade Fused Glass Napkin Rings Set of Four

My first love, a part from my husband, is by far jewelry making, but I have come very fond of glass work as well.  In some instances, I'm not too sure which I prefer.  It fascinates me to see the changes that happen when glass is introduced to high heat.  Although my goal is to one day learn more about blowing glass, fusing glass is a wonderful introduction to me becoming better acquainted with its properties.  Working with glass can be very tricky and your piece easily ruined if you don't know what you're doing.

The technique used for making the napkin rings below, is quite interesting.  It's actually made in different steps with multiple fusings in the kiln.  The brown decorative part is made separate and then added to the main ring.  In order to make the napkin ring rounded, I needed to work in the kiln with heat resistant gloves and special a special tool to form the strip of glass; let me tell you it's quite intimidating at first.  How often does one stick their hands in a heated kiln??  It is a long process.  I can only work on one ring at a time, because each ring needs to be at a certain temperature, which I need to hold, before forming (curving it) and then, each individual ring needs to sit in the kiln, with the cover, to gradually bring down the temperature up to the cooling time.  I do admit, it is quite a feat, but it's so worth it in the end, don't you think?

This beautiful set of four shiny napkin rings in warm tones of green and light brown are very classy and would make anyone receiving them happy as can be. Absolutely lovely for the person who loves to entertain!!  Click here for more info-
