new jewelry displays, radish earrings

It's hard to believe but my next craft show is only a little more than 2 weeks away!  I still have a lot to do to get ready before then.  I did receive one important addition for my fall/winter shows in the mail today: new jewelry displays.  I hope that having a couple vertical displays will add to the overall look of my booth set up.

I know that they'll look even better when they have jewelry on them. I bought both displays from this seller on Ebay.  I was very pleased with the price and the shipping.  It only took about 2 weeks for them to arrive from China.  If anyone is looking for something like this for themselves, I highly recommend this seller.  I'll have more details about my overall display and upcoming show details soon.

I have only relayed my recent custom order saga to Jake and the EtsyBloggers.  If you want to hear the whole story, you'll have to message me privately.  Suffice it to say, I was going to have a big reveal yesterday or today and that isn't going to happen.  I will post more details about those custom pieces sometime next week when the whole thing is hopefully finished.  For now, I keep forgetting to post a picture of the wedding order that I had a few weeks ago.
I made custom versions of the two bracelets on the left (which were made to order anyway so it worked out well) for the flower girls, which is why they are so small.  The other four bracelets will be for the bridesmaids.  I included the button earrings in coordinating colors as a surprise gift.  This bride has been an amazing customer, and I'm still in awe that she ordered so many bracelets from me.  I hope that she has a wonderful wedding.

Finally, my newest custom order is for a pair of Luna Lovegood inspired radish earrings.  I found a pattern online that she liked and used the concept to create my own original version of it.  Here's a peak at the first radish, finished, with no post yet (she specifically wanted posts).
I love the way this design turned out.  I had no intention of making a second pair to sell, but I am definitely planning to now.  I will take more pictures of the final product and post them here sometime in the next week.


  1. Those custom pieces are wonderful! The earrings were a very nice addition too!

    Hope all works out with the other custom order.

  2. Thanks Sharla! I think at this point, things will work out with the other custom order. The buyer is pretty happy with the exchange that we settled on, and I'll be able to resell the piece as soon as I have it back. I'll keep everyone updated. :)

  3. Congrats on the custom bridal order! And the radishes :) I can see you making other cute foods now too :)

  4. Thanks Beth and Edi! I can, too, Edi. :) I think that just about any kind of fruit with similar little leaves would be adorable!

  5. The bracelets are gorgeous. How sweet of the bride to order something custom made.

  6. I adore the radish...especially the little "curly" leaves!

  7. Erika, I know! The bride ordered a custom cuff from me, which she liked so much that she decided to buy jewelry for the rest of the girls in the wedding party from me. :)

    Thanks Patti!
