Product Discontinuation: Wizard Jewelry

With my whole rebranding process and fine tuning my product line into one cohesive unit comes having to say good bye to some beloved products…

…including my Harry Potter inspired jewelry line.

There are a couple reasons why they are the first to go. The main reason is that they don’t really match up with the whole landscape/nature feel I’m looking for now 😉

I’m also stopping them because I don’t want to get my Etsy store shut down. I’ve had to change all my keywords, descriptions and tags because a lot of companies are coming after small businesses who are using their licensed characters without permission, and Etsy is shutting down their shops. I don’t want to have to deal with that stress anymore, even if I’m not using brand names.

For the earrings, when they are gone, they are completely gone. The necklaces are a little more flexible; I do have more of the pendants available that I can restock again, but once my supplies and stock are fully gone, they’re gone for good.

Some of the pieces are already sold out; I think the red studs are already gone, but I think I do have some more dangles that are ready to be listed. I should have those up within the next couple days if I do in fact have any.

You can find the remaining product line in my Etsy store here.

 

I think I’ve asked this before, but which house do you belong to in the Harry Potter world? Hufflepuffs rule! There are three Hufflepuffs, one Gryffindor, and one Ravenclaw in my family 🙂

New Product Alert: Watercolor Earrings

Introducing my new watercolor earrings!

Aren’t they adorable? They remind me of button candy!

In case you’re wondering, yes, I already have some watercolor earrings. This is not a relaunch of the product, but the launch of a new style of earrings instead.

At my last art show, a lot of people fell in love with my watercolor paper earrings. However, they were either concerned about the size of them (as they only wear smaller dangle earrings) or the durability of them. It got me thinking about making watercolor earrings that addressed those concerns, and here is the result.

They are made in the same fashion as the watercolor necklaces, just on a smaller scale. Some of them pair perfectly with necklaces, too!

Each earring is a unique watercolor painting; no two are the same, even in a set! The painting is placed between a glass cabochon and a metal tray, just like the necklaces.

They are water resistant and are on nickel free earring hooks. They are approximately 1 1/4″ in length and about 1/4″ in diameter without the hook.

I’m listing them on my Etsy store when I can; I have a few pairs listed now, and have a bunch more that I’ll be listing over the next week or so as my schedule allows. A larger selection of necklaces is coming as well!

New Product Alert: Watercolor Paper Earrings!

It’s been a long time coming, but the Watercolor Paper earrings are FINALLY available in my Etsy store!

I debuted these back in December at the arts & crafts show, but just couldn’t get around to getting these on the website with the holidays, birthdays, and sicknesses. When I was just about ready to get them up, I discovered a way to add even more durability to them: mini eyelets!

Each earring is a unique piece of art; even each earring in a set is slightly different from the other! They are made of thick watercolor paper that has been painted with either watercolors or ink, and the backs are painted in a coordinating color. They are sealed twice with a special varnish for added protection. An eyelet is added at the top for extra durability to keep the hooks from pulling through the paper.

How durable are they?

I wore them out before Christmas while running errands. It was super wet snow and it was wiiiiindy. Even with them getting tugged by me getting hair out of my face or getting wet from the elements, they held up amazingly well, even without the eyelets!

I wouldn’t suggest holding an inquisitive baby or toddler while wearing these as I’m not sure how well they’d hold up, but they’re perfect for date night, work days, or just every day wear!

How did you name them?

I wanted to do something fun with them, and just calling them by their shape, size and color wasn’t working for me. I gave them all girl names, and each name has a specific meaning. Some of them reminded me of something, like the white and dark pink ombre set remind me of Alice painting the Red Queen’s roses in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, so I named them Alice. Other ones reminded me of things, and I found a girl’s name that had that meaning. For example, one set reminded me of the moon, so I call them Luna. One reminded me of the earth as they’re dark blue and green, so they’re named Terra.

Can I do special requests?

Sure thing! If you want a specific color combination or even if you like a certain color/pattern but want them in a different size/shape, let me know! I’ll do my best to create something you’ll love.

Where can I buy these?

You can find them in my Etsy store here, and they will also be available in my booth at arts and craft fairs!
