I am making a change in my ArtFire shops

 

I have 2 Shops on Artfire.com..

My main shop is http://Gingerbells.artfire.com this is where I sell all of my finished handcrafts,jewelry and bath and body products  My second shop is http://GingerbellsToo.artfire.com  in this shop I carry all of the beads and baubles for my craft supply hoard, handmade beads and buttons.

Managing my online shops takes many hours of computer work,having 2 just multiplies the work.  I enjoy the work but really I would rather spend the time making pretty things.  So to that end I have decided to combine the 2 shops.  Over the next few weeks I will be moving the supplies from my Gingerbell’s Too shop to my Gingerbell’s shop.

I will be having a “Moving Sale” in Gingerbell’s Too Shop starting this week end and begin listing all new items to my Gingerbell’s shop…..

Here are a couple of new items I will be listing this weekend….

Purple passion

Lately purple has been my go to color.  Almost everything I make begins with color it seems to be my biggest inspiration.

While shopping I found this beautiful natural amethyst focal bead and I wasn’t sure what I would do with it, make something with it or just sit it on my work table and enjoy the pretty purple and white crystals.  Well after playing with it for a couple of days I decided it needed to be a necklace.  I started looking through my huge bead stash and found some awesome amethyst colored crystals,black onyx and pearls that I thought would flatter the focal bead.

100_6934-1 Here is a close up of the focal..isn’t the color pretty?  100_6933 This is the finished necklace.  It looks beautiful on and is a “Look at me “ necklace for sure.

I would love to keep it but I am going to list it in my on line shop.  Http://GingerbellsGifts.Artfire.com and until it sells I will be able to look at it and admire the lovely amethyst stone.
