New Design- Hand cut Peek-A-Boo Necklace

I woke upwith this idea and didn't sleep until it was created.  So here is it everyone, enjoy.

*Peek-a-Boo Heart Necklace*

This 1.25" hand cut hammered copper heart disk overlaps a hammered silver disk with a swirl of names or your favorite quote. The heart cut out gives a peek a boo view of the names underneath. Fun and unique design that will be a sure conversation piece. Stamp up to 55-60 characters. Strung on a oxidized 16" or 18" ball chain. 

Perfect for a Grandmother with many kiddos- up to 7-9 names, depending in the length.  Great Mother's Day gift!

Record Sales

For just starting my shop on mid January, I am very pleased to say that I have over 80 sales already. Now, I am not one to brag, but I am seriously pleased that I found a craft that I LOVE while making some spare change along with it.  We are saving my profits from my etsy sales for a BC (before children- yes Jane, we're getting close!) trip we will take to Italy with some close friends of ours in September.  We are 1/4 of the way there!  

Any recommendations on new necklace designs are always welcome. Oh and if any of you have any recommendations or advice for our Italy trip, let me know!!

I caved

So I have a blog. I said I would never do this but here I am.  Not sure if I have anything to share that is worth while, but I'll give it a shot. 

I will mostly be using this blog as a promotional tool for my jewelry business. ( Make sure you check back often because I will be having monthly promotions.

My life and my many jobs:
1.Mostly an Interior Designer by day- hopefully this economy will turn around soon.
2. Jewelry Designer- Hand stamped personalized jewelry
3. Elderly Companion to my husbands grandfather- this job consists of driving to his fave diner every morning, listening to the same stories over and over again, talking really loud, walking really slow, checking his mailbox every 10 minutes, and so on..... sitter
5. I'm sure I will keep adding to my resume...

The most exciting job right now is my jewelry business.  I haven't slept much since this began.  I am constantly coming up with new designs, writing them down on a bedside notepad in the middle of the night.  I am super excited about the future of magpiedesignz and hope to be featured in many local shops.  

See below for a little taste and check out my shop and give me some feedback!   And look back for February's promotion!
