Beaded Jewelry by Susan: Renew Acquaintances

When items are listed in my Etsy jewelry shop, the listing is valid for four months at a time and then needs to be "renewed." This gives everyone who hasn't seem a particularly lovely piece a chance to, once again, view it and maybe even decide to purchase it. My shop is just starting to come into its time for "renewing acquaintances," with some of the first batch of beaded necklaces that I listed  -- while the summer breezes were still blowing and the trees still had all their green leaves. They are just as nice now as they were then, of course. For example, consider this Multi-Blue Multi-Strand Necklace http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27335605 that goes so well with everything in any shade of blue.

    If you've been reading the series of posts about how different kinds of glass beads are made, you know that hollow blown glass beads are included in the list to be described in upcoming posts. Here's an example of striking black-and-white hollow blown glass beads from Venice in this piece that was just renewed this morning. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27334965.

I like to vary the style of my pieces quite a bit. That way I get to use a wide range of bead materials in my designs and it's just more fun to experiment. So I include some ethnic styles, such as this Bold and Sassy Cherry Red Necklace: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27333570.

In the next few days, I'll be renewing a number of the first necklaces I listed when I opened the Etsy shop. If you missed them, come on by and have a look. The prices range a bit, but they make for very affordable holiday gifts or as personal treats to boost your own spirits as we enter the season of ice and snow.  http://www.beadedjewelrybysusan.etsy.com/.
