I am getting quite a few emails about the future of the Custom Shop. I am definitely going to try and open up the Custom Shop again in the future. This opening is kind of a trial run to see how well I can handle making orders for the Custom Shop as well as maintaining my main website. So for now, I have no details on any future Custom Shop events. I'll be sure and keep you posted on the subject...that is if I am still alive at the end of this one!
Thank you to all of you for your support!

I had a few that would be perfect for Halloween, so I snapped a few quick pics of them and popped them up on my site. The descriptions are a little corny and they pictures are little bare...but I wanted to do it quickly so they could be up before Halloween.
I have a few options for wearing your pendents. My favorite is the Silk Strands. These are super long (about 36 inches) and are hand dyed. I have a few colors that I'm going to list. The most basic, black.
The silk strands are worn by tying them in the back. Since they are so long, you get two nice long pieces that trail down your back for a very cool, elegant, and sexy look.
The front view.
Another option is to add an accent bead. Here is a handmade glass lampwork bead added to the black Silk Strand.
These can be worn two ways. In the front just above the pendant like so...
or my favorite, in the back. Here again you get the long trails of the Strand handing down your back. This looks so good when you wear your hair up!
Finally here is a simple, silver snake chain that goes well with any look!
I have only a few of the pendants and only one of each kind. I'm going to work on listing the rest hopefully by the end of tonight (along with the Strands and chains).
Here's the link to the jewelry spot on my website.
