hooray! gold vermeil trinkets are online

well, i’ve been meaning to get this out to everyone sooner, but since the storms and with John gone all day every day in the city, I just wanted to enjoy us all being together NOT huddled down against the weather–

our holiday tableanyway we’ve had a lovely weekend so far, making time for a beautiful holiday dinner- brining the turkey is the way, even a non-turkey lover like me can enjoy.

also some football, pies (pumpkin with my best homemade crust ever), champagne, roaring fires, Santa and the tree-lighting in ‘downtown’ Bethel last night.

might even get a date with John tonight!

so more to the point, the gold vermeil trinkets are now available at a 40% discount only to fans who subscribe to my (infrequent) email updates. here’s the earlier post with more details. if you’re on the list, check your email this morning. if you’re not, you can sign up here.

if you hate email lists, i have something for you to this holiday season, too, because there’s free shipping for everyone in the US until December 15. its been a terrific year, and thanks again to all who’ve supported me and my work on the way along.

here’s some pics of the gold trinkets, I’ll write some more about them later.

Christmas present feedback | 22 karat gold om pendant

Yes, I am still finishing the last few jewelry orders for holiday gift giving in the studio and have been pressed for time with holiday preparations for the kids, in-laws visiting, etc– but this email I received today is too good to wait!

I love getting feedback like this on my work (for obvious reasons) and sharing someone else’s words is the best way to share with you why I love my work and why I love working with my clients.

Heather,
 
It just arrived and it is beautiful! I can’t wait to give it to her, she will love it.

 
Thank you for rushing the shipping, I do appreciate it. I also enjoyed talking to you and will definitely keep in touch…
 
I’m still having trouble seeing snow on the beach (it just seems wrong) and we did get over a foot! The next day the sun was out and it was the coolest sunset with the water and snow all lit up in a golden glow. I hope you, John, and the kids have a fantastic Christmas and New Year! Good health!
 
Mark

Thank you Mark and all of my wonderful clients this holiday season- it is truly my pleasure to get to know you and create for you at this special time of year. I wish you all a magical holiday and fabulous 2010!

top holiday gifts? handmade jewelry, of course.

*scroll to the bottom for this year’s special holiday shopping offer for my subscribers!*

the studio is starting to get busy with orders and questions about holiday gifts and gift ideas, so i thought i’d write quickly my holiday gift ideas for you before getting back to new custom jewelry projects and photos.

my holiday gift guides

we’ve re-established my online shop for my handmade jewelry: each of my handforged peace sign jewelry pieces (including the earrings!), rune symbols and wishbone necklacesthat have been my top holiday gifts in past seasons.

online payments for my shopping cart are securely handled by PayPal, where you can use any major credit or debit card as well as your PayPal account.

this year i’m pleased to add a new series of pendants in time for the holidays: the ohm pendant designed for my fellow yoga fans and practitioners.

like my other handmade jewelry, the om pendants are made one at a time on my studio and are available on different chains and lengths to order. my current favorite combo is the 22 karat gold om pendant on rawhide, a nice juxtaposition of purity, luxury and simplicty.

in time for christmas?

always!

one of the reasons i recommend the pendants is that they are simple enough to finish and ship quickly, even at the last minute. I usually ship for the holidays up until December 15 or so by my usual means, USPS priority mail with insurance and tracking.

doing any holiday specials this year?

yes!

every year i do a special holiday discount offer for memail subscribers, and this year i’m extending it to my Facebook Fans as well.

this year, its called Gold Friday:  you can save from $60 to $260 on all gold jewelry in my online shop this Thanksgiving weekend only.

so join me on my Facebook page for handforged custom jewelry or sign up for my list below before midnight on Thanksgiving, and I’ll email you the special code along with all of my longtime clients, friends and fans first thing on Gold Friday morning! (screw Black Friday– there, I said it.)
