I have a confession to make, I am a shop-a-holic. Not only for myself, but for my business. I am always out sourcing new materials and really funky beads to work with and I can’t not buy something when it screams to be worked with. The issue at hand is how do you know what I have without me posting thousands of pictures of beads, which for me would be thrilling, but lets face it, I don’t think YOU would really want to look through everything. After all, how many versions of an 8mm black round bead can one person have (17 if you really want to know).
So without further ado Little Whimsy is thrilled to announce Uniques. A line of one of a kind pieces made as the mood strikes from my many beads on hand. Each piece is crafted with the same love and care, selecting each bead one by one for it’s beauty and flow in the final piece. Uniques can be resized free of charge, plus or minus one inch.
Here are just a few that we’re launching with:
Onyx Crush Bracelet – Stunning black onyx surrounded by Bali sterling accents, a match made in heaven.
Copper Dream Bracelet – Gorgeous antiqued Bali inspired copper paired with rich black onyx. A stunning combination!
Pretty In Pink Bracelet – Fresh and bright, perfect for Spring! Frosted pink glass nuggets are brought to life by bright AB fire polished crystals and high polish sterling silver accents.
Chocolate Turquoise Bracelet – What could be more delightful than a blend of creamy chocolate and vibrant turquoise? Our chocolate turquoise bracelet shows off the beauty of these amazing beads and is chock full of sterling silver accents.
Uniques are ready for immediate shipping as is, or add a photo charm for your own personal twist (additional production time required if adding a photo tile). Since each piece is a one of a kind creation, pieces are limited to the quantities on hand.
Check our selection of Uniques often to see what’s new!
Yes I know, we’re JUST getting over the wrath of Christmas 2008, but I had to share something I know will be a huge hit for Christmas 2009. a 40mm Mother of Pearl Christmas ornament.
What a beatuful gift it would make for Christenings, Weddings, Anniversaries, or just capturing those everyday moments we love to look back on year after year.
We haven’t yet posted it on the website, but I will get to that soon. I just wanted to share a peek because it’s a beauty and I know you will all be as excited about it as I am.
Retail will be $40.00.
Little Whimsy is ringing in 2009 with a guide to simplify your jewelry
shopping experience. Many times we are asked what the difference is in
sizes when compared side by side, or for a better visual on a bail, or a
clearer representation of jeweling styles. We’ve spelled it all out in an
easy to read at a glance guide. Our Jewelry Buying Guide can be found at LittleWhimsy.com on the left under important links.
A printable version can also be downloaded by clicking here.
*tip* Print out on standard sized paper (8.5×11) and the tiles will be
representative of their actual size.
I’m tickled pink to announce that just in time for the holidays we have 2 new products that will be launching.
First one is a double stranded ribbon necklace with sterling lobster clasp. We will have these available in black, brown, and pink starting November 1st.
Here it is in pink with a 20mm x 30mm simple couture pendant:
And here it is in black with a 30mm x 20mm funky couture pendant.
The next item (which I’ll have to upload a picture for later) is our photo magnet! They will each be 2″ x 2″ in size, manufactured on bass wood (a hard wood version of our balsa ornament) and will feature a full bleed magnet backing. The photo magnets will retail for $20 each and make FANTASTIC client gifts! A perfect trinket they will leave up year round in the most focal point of thier home. 😉 The magnets will come individually packaged in our tulle silver and white pouch that coordinate with our ornament packaging.
Launching next month will be a new product line called Simplicity.
Simplicity features a dual strand of beautiful gemstone accented by a sterling box clasp and sterling bail. At launch it will be available in several colors including onyx (shown), coral, garnet, turquoise, tiger eye, cobalt blue, white jade and possibly a few others. 🙂 Simplicity will retail for $200 and includes either a 30mm x 30mm or 20mm x 30mm couture pendant in your choice of orientation (vertical or horizontal).
This item will not be listed on the website until early/mid June, however if you are interested in ordering a piece ahead of time you can email me at info @ littlewhimsy (dot) com and I can accept it as a custom order. As an added bonus, mention you saw it on the blog and I’ll throw in an extra 10% discount. The additional discount expires May 20th, so for those of you who check in on me regularly it’s a special little gift for you!
Here are some beauties going out today. First up is Fiesta with a rockin’ image, what a perfect choice for this necklace! If you look really close it looks like the little girl has on a little fiesta of her own. 🙂
Next here’s a classic… Midnight with a gorgeous B&W pendant. You just can’t go wrong with this classic pairing.
And this one was kind of funky. The client wanted a triple pendant, but her images were in various orientations. The end result was a triple with 2 squares and a vertical rectangle… I’m sensing the start of a new trend!
Here’s something not on the website, but a request from a special client. She was looking for an all sterling key ring with a sterling key fob so of course I had to take on the challenge. We worked together to create just the right piece for her client and here’s the result…
So what do you think?
Here’s another custom from one of my regular clients (see the princess post). This one we made special, a bit longer than normal as a solid loop so it can go right over her clients head. The colors are to die for! Someone I couldn’t help showing it off to said it reminded her of minestrone soup. Simply delicious!
I had a client who was looking for a photo pendant with gold and of course you know I love custom work. Check out how beautiful this one turned out…
She also picked up a Swarovski Y Necklace set, which I loved making.
S, I hope you love them as much as I do!
