3 Special Reminders for Monday!

There are 3 things you don't want to miss out on today!

1.  Today is Cyber-Monday and many ArtFire studios are offering free shipping!   That includes me!   You may have missed this post which was only up a short while Saturday, so I'll link to it.  At my "Sharyl's Jewelry" Studio, there are actually 2 sales running at the same time right now!   FREE SHIPPING and a FREE GIFT with each purchase.  See here for details!


2.  I'm really hoping for more responses to my posting of Nov. 22nd regarding craft show ideas!  Comments and suggestions to that post go into a prize drawing, so I hope you'll take time to make a comment!    The last day for entries is Tues, Nov. 29!

for displaying pendants at craft fairs.

3.  Lori Anderson is hosting a brand new event, the First Annual "Virtual Craft Show" with discounts and give-aways from 70 jewelry artists!   Oh, the beautiful things that appear each day!    I'm writing this up in the early hours of Sunday, and the listings from Day 2 are currently up.   There is no way I can list all the beautiful items, (and that's what Lori's blog is for anyway), but let me show you just a few highlights to encourage you to go look at the rest!

SueBeads, who I swear never has an  imperfect bead for sale, has this special running:

Special code CRAFTSHOW15 will give you 15% off your purchases plus a free pair of handcrafted brass or copper earring wires with each purchase of an earring bead pair.   To take a good look at the beautiful color and variety of styles of her handmade glass and enamel beads, go to her shop at:

Just one example are these frosty looking beads in many colors.  They look like they are covered in tiny ice crystals or sleet (which looks so much more lovely on beads than anywhere else!)

Another one I can't resist is Kristi Bowman Designs. Kristi is giving away this pair of earrings and I love them so much I hate to tell too many people about them or I'll never have a chance of winning!  :-)

From Kristi Bowman Designs
You can't tell me these aren't cool!   Pink jade combined with copper components and wrapped wire.  (I'm telling you, they'd look great hanging from my ears!... But you probably feel the same way, so go to her page and enter the contest!)

Kristi is also offering free domestic shipping through December 3rd In both her Etsy and Artfire Shops.   See her shops or blog for details.

Finally, as I commented on her blog, I love beadcaps as much as I love beads these days!   And when I saw these listed on the Virtual Craft Fair by Lisa Lidy, and the  "Metal Me This" blog, I had that "oh, I so want these" feeling!  

In addition to the drawing for this sampler set of bead caps priced at $36,
you can save 20% in the "Metal Me This" Etsy store
with Etsy coupon VCS2011.

There are many more brilliant jewelry artists on display so please go pay them a visit, shop their shops, and take advantage of the sales!   Best wishes to all!   --Sharyl

Sharyl - thanks so much for the follow and the compliments on my jewelry - you're very kind!

I'm following along with you, too and love the designs you have on your site~!

I too am drooling over everything up on Lori Anderson's Virtual Craft Fair this week - especially Kristi's pieces - hers are some of my absolute favorites!!
