The Hive's Creative Challenge -- The leaves are fallin' !

Made with all glass beads. 

I have to say I am very proud of this one ! :)

Hive Creative Challenge --- Autumn Glass Bracelet

I used Amber and clear glass beads with copper eye pins and copper lobster claw clasp for this bracelet. 

U is for ...


I've been thinking about raising the price of my jewelry. if people who put no effort in to their designs charge $30 for a necklace made with just beading wire and a glass bead why can't i charge $20 for a necklace that was worked on for more than 3 seconds =) but my necklaces haven't been selling for even $13 -$15 =( . so i dont know what to do...... any advice about pricing?

Erin's Jewelry Creations  --- will be adding more items this weekend. i noticed my bill is low =) lol 

T is for...


I love trades. Especially if the trade is something i can use to make jewelry with. 
I found this group called the Trade-A-Holics. I havent traded anything yet but they seem like a great group. They are an Etsy team but u can follow their blog even if u arent a member....... Trade A Holics .

"The Etsy Trade-a-holic Team’s purpose is to trade amongst it’s members and other interested shops. Thru trading, we self & cross promote, receive feedback and build our sales plus gain wanted or needed items.
