At Bohemian Ice Jewelry Etsy, many prices have been reduced for the End of Summer Blowout…..necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Also, I am happy to announce that the shipping fees have changed to $2.00 on first item…$0 on the rest of the items in your order. Yes, that’s only a total of $2.00 shipping on any order. So, have a look at my artisan bling. Satisfaction guaranteed.
Having a work space is a great thing for any artist….but, not everyone can afford dedicating a good portion of their “space” for use in their art or craft. I have been blessed recently with moving all of my art paraphernalia, from the back room and from a bunch of nooks and crannies all around the house, to the nice sized middle room in my house. My sweet husband, had a suggestion of moving around the rooms in our house, so that I could have a whole room to myself for painting, photography, jewelry making, and all the other artsy stuff I do. After all, this is my life’s work….and I love it and it’s great having a place for all of my stuff.
It was a lot of work moving things around, but we got it done and I just love it. I have a work table and my jewelry making table off in the corner near the two windows….outside the windows, we have huge rhododendrium outside covering the whole window but still letting light in….these stay green year round and have big beautiful pink blooms in the spring. Our wood stove is in this room, so it has to stay, but it’ll be nice and cozy in there during the cold weather.
As I said, it’s nice having a work space of your own, but not everyone can have one. I know myself, there was a time where I had things stuffed into big tupperware containers jammed into corners. I guess the biggest advantage to having your own art space is that you can start a project and leave the project for a while, without having to put everything away each time your take a break from it…..and knowing where you put things …having some sort of organization is wonderful.
First, if you don’t have your own room, the best thing to do is to try to organize everything into categories and separate with different storage containers. Next, if you can spare even a small part of a room (that is out of the way of traffic) or even a closet, try using this smaller area the best that you can. Once you get organized, it makes things easier and more enjoyable.
I love to do custom orders….it’s so rewarding to make something for someone and have it turn out just the way that they want it. This photo is just part of an order that I had for an upcoming wedding. This necklace and earring set was made for the bride. I used freshwater pearls in white and cranberry….the white pearls had Swarovski crystals embedded in them…what sparkle! I used Swarovski crystals to accent the pearls also, and an awesome rose clasp with crystals.
I also did the bridesmaids jewelry, the flower girls jewelry, and the mothers of the couple. Anyone interested in having their perfect piece hand-crafted by an artisan, I would love the opportunity to oblige. Check out my other jewelry at Bohemian Ice or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a jewelry artist, next to Swarovski Crystal, freshwater pearls are my favorite to work with….when making a piece of jewelry with them, it’s like instant gratification seeing how nice the piece is turning out. Pearls are so classic and beautiful. They go with everything.
I just finished a necklace and earring set done in green freshwater pearls and unakite (a green and brick colored gemstone) and I’ve just posted them for sale in my etsy store “Bohemian Ice.” The earrings are gold-plated (earwires & dangle) and the toggle on the necklace is gold-plated also. I always try to use quality materials in all of my creations, and that includes jewelry, painting, photography, etc.
