shipping your steals and deals

i’ve got three fingertips taped up from final filing & fitting, and a sore wrist from hammering, but its still more fun than i ever imagined filling and shipping dozens of orders everyday.

the Steals and Deals appearance on the TODAY show two weeks ago was, of course, a huge success, not just in sales but also in getting to meet hundreds of great new people interested in jewelry, symbols, blacksmithing and my style through email and on the phone.

Shipping your Steals and Dealsthanks to everyone who’s ordered and if you haven’t gotten your pieces yet, rest assured that they are headed to he post soon in a box like this, hand filled and double checked by me personally.

once again, i couldn’t have gotten this all in order smoothly without john’s help. i guess all those years of him framing pictures are good for something still– he’s helped me make a smooth system of printing labels and packing slips and entering it all into the computer so we know what’s done and what’s not.

i’d rather just be making the jewelry but i have to admit its pretty satisfying seeing the box fill up with packages all labelled with their postage already and delivery confirmation tracking bar codes– we’re burning through printer cartridges, but me and %$#@&^! technology are getting along pretty well right now!

so on that note, if you;re still looking for your order, i should mention that your shipping confirmation emails don’t actually come from me, they come from paypal.com with some crazy long number in the address, so for some people they are being blocked as spam. we did write you a note mentioning that if you sign up for my mailing list, you will get exclusive access to future special offers direct from me–

Jill’s Steals and Deals was the first time i’ve ever offered a discount to anyone not on my mailing list or a fan on Facebook!

(right now, all mailing list subscribers can still get the Steals and Deals 76% discount through next Friday, April 21 with a special code, (even tho Jill’s deal is over) so if you missed out two weeks ago, you didn’t! check your email for a message from me (if you’re currently a subscriber) or sign up here if you’re not– new orders won’t ship until May, but the trinkets won’t ever be this cheap again!

video: Jill’s steals, my new deal for you

if you’re like me in that you don’t watch television or have cable in your house, you probably didn’t see my jewelry featured last Tuesday morning on Jill’s Steals and Deals, a bi-weekly segment on NBC’s Today show.

and if you didn’t see it, you didn’t get a chance to jump on the best deal and biggest discount I’ve ever offered anyone on any jewelry I’ve ever made.

so to make sure all of my longtime fans, friends, clients and email subscribers could get the same deal, i’m opening up the same offer today to everyone who likes my work, whether you’ve been supporting me for years with your good energy and enthusiasm (you know who you are!) or if you just discovered me and didn’t get your order in before Jill’s offer expired.

if you’re already on my list, check your email this evening (April 3) for a new discount code just for friends and fans and the link to use it on.

if you’re not on my list, please watch the video to see the offer and get the URL where you can sign up for this special deal. don’t worry, I *hate* spam and only email my friends and fans a few times a year, and only when I’ve got something good for you like this–

enjoy!

the kids and I went across the way to watch it live last week at our neighbors and record this homemade clip to post here- quite a kick to see your own stuff on national TV!

got questions? click ‘contact’ in the menu above and let me know directly. as always, I’m happy to help you out!

catch my trinkets on the Today Show tomorrow!

well honestly, i never imagined I would be sharing a “press release” with you all, but this is a rather unusual situation. tomorrow morning, tuesday march 27th, my little line of hand hammered sterling silver trinkets are going to be featured on the Today Show on NBC in the “Steals and Deals” segment.

for real…

(so if you know how to forge sterling, get yourself over here, I am gonna need some help!!!)

but seriously, this is an amazing deal (especially with the current price of sterling). these little trinkets (peace signs, om symbols, little wishbones and all 12 zodiac signs) are really dear to my heart. I forge them as a testament to the power that lies within all of us, to share, to rejoice, to quietly roar… so enjoy this deal and take advantage of it while it lasts!

i also had some new photos of the trinkets taken by awesome Pittsburgh photographer Ed Rombout, check out the new peace sign, press release below.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Metalsmith Offers Huge One Time Jewelry Discount on NBC’s Today Show

New York, NY – March 23, 2012 Known to her fans for one of a kind custom and limited release jewelry designs, metalsmith Heather Reilly is doing something different next week, and doing it in a big way.

On Tuesday March 27, Ms. Reilly’s line of hand forged “trinket” pendants will be featured on the weekly “Steals and Deals” segment of the The Today Show on NBC hosted by Jill Martin, where unique products are offered at a 75%-95% discount from retail for 24 hours only.

“I haven’t done any real wholesale jewelry since leaving The Sundance Catalog in 2002, and I only offer small discounts on these pieces to past clients, email subscribers & my Facebook fans,” says Ms. Reilly, “but after hearing about Jill’s enthusiasm for the trinkets, I thought, why not? I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t appreciate that kind of deal these days.”

The “trinkets” offered on the segment are all forged in solid sterling silver, which Ms. Reilly points out, “is pricing at an all time high right now, like most other precious metals. So I feel really good about hooking people up.”

Fifteen different designs will be available, including the wishbone, peace sign and ohm pendants that have been best sellers for her for years. The other twelve represent the traditional symbols of the zodiac, a new line Ms. Reilly just introduced at the end of 2011.

“I’ve always been interested in icons, symbols and alchemy, so after a couple of custom requests, it seemed a natural to make a birth sign for everyone. Since only my fans have seen them so far, I look forward to sharing them with so many new people at such a great price.”

Trained as a blacksmith’s apprentice, Heather Reilly is a metalsmith and jewelry designer whose work is available exclusively online at https://heather-reilly.com. Tune in to NBC’s Today Show Tuesday, March 27, 2012 at 9.15 am in your time zone for your chance at this special deal.
