Latest collection on Gemsdesigns

Well thats that!! Christmas is over and were looking forwards to the New Year.
The New Year uaually brings in new challanges, and this year is no different.
I say new ... its not, not realy, but more of a reinvention.
Many years ago I used to curcuit the Spiritual Health and Healing Fairs, but due to expense of the stalls I gave them up.
Although I still work along those lines, and making custom orders for the Healing Jewelry in Sterling Silver and Crystal/Gemstone, I have decided to make up a selectoion of the Healing Jewelry in Copper.

A bit about Copper Copper link
Here is an extract from the page
n ancient India (before 1000 B.C.), copper was used in the holistic medical science Ayurveda for surgical instruments and other medical equipment. Ancient Egyptians (~2400 B.C.) used copper for sterilizing wounds and drinking water, and as time passed, (~1500 B.C.) for headaches, burns, and itching. Hippocrates (~400 B.C.) used copper to treat leg ulcers associated with varicose veins. Ancient Aztecs fought sore throats by gargling with copper mixtures. And today, many arthritis sufferers wear copper bracelets to relieve pain.

Custom Orders
If you would like any of the Copper Jewelry made in Sterling Silver (Sterling Silver contains 925% Silver the rest is made up of other metals mainly Copper) then please e-mail me for more information.
so without further ado Here is a selection that will be availble, if not already, this week.
Happy New Year and may 2012 be the greatest yet

And before we know it

There’s only 14 days left.
Are you all excited? I'm not quite there yet, suppose I will start to feel the excitement once we get the tree up, but till them, the feelings and tingling are on a back burner.
We had family here up until dinner time, then decided to tidy away all my bits and pieces, cleared the work area and put the table covers for the wash, I may .... Just get another piece of Jewelry finished before xmas but not overly worried if I don’t.
I still have projects that need to be finished, Bit of bunting to sew, Lemon curd tarts to make, a secret Santa gift to make, but I cant put on here what it is in case she pops along and reads it lol.
All the Fairs are finished for me this year, so that means I can pack away the boxes and such, and make sure there is room to sit and eat our xmas dinner :)

I bought a small snowman snow globe the other day, grandson loves it, so I’m thinking of getting him round and having a crafty makes day, where we can get out all the card, glitter, inks, stamps you name it and I probably have it, or know someone who does, I could even let him sew up some little hearts for on the tree.

Anyways I’m sure you don’t need reminding that folksy have some very talented peeps, and there are some fantastic sales taking place at the moment, so pop along and check out these two threads for starters. The one day sale thread and the daily listing thread please note there is a new daily lising thread and one day sale thread every day so pop in to the folksy forum everyday to check them out
And dont forget to visit my shop as a special gift from me get 10% refunded (via paypal) by leaving a note on the paypal invoice stating blog discount. This special offer will end on Wednesday 14th December 2011
