ArtFire Update & Store SALE!

Hi, remember me?! I'm Sharyl,...
artisan and owner of Sharyl's Jewelry™  (ArtFire) and Metapolies™ stores on (Etsy and ACM)!     

I admit, I've been a bit negligent with blogging lately as I build a collection of my handmade goodies for you in each location!  I'm happy to say, all are pretty well-stocked at the moment, with even more seasonal items to come soon!

However, if any of you have visited my Artfire store (or any Artfire store) in the past week, you've probably noticed things appear to be amiss.  Please bear with us as Artfire undergoes some system upgrades.
