Gallery Boom

I am so pleased to announce that my jewelry is now available at Gallery Boom in Tumwater, WA.

Gallery Boom 3

This is my display, near the front window (see picture above).  The earrings, bracelets and necklaces all have handmade ceramic components, both my own ceramic beads and pendants, as well as the work of other ceramic bead artists. You’ll also find lampwork glass and various textile accents in my work, as well.

The photo below shows my earring display.  There was a strong backlight coming through the window, so it was hard to photograph with accurate colors.

I added some tacks to my usual wooden box displays, so I could hang up some of my bracelets.  A few days ago I made the Christmas bracelet you see in the center of the photo.  It was fun to make and it’s fun to wear!

January 2015 in Review

The first month of 2015 has gone by in a rush.  Our big adventure is that we are living in Oaxaca, Mexico through the end of March.  We celebrated the New Year in Oaxaca by dancing to an awesome marimba band and watching fireworks.

Of course I brought beads with me here and I’ve been busy designing new pieces.  Oaxaca has been good for my creative mojo.

T-Day Sale Collage-with Text corrected

This year I am seriously trying to avoid the malls and shop locally or online.  I feel so much calmer when I do so.  I hate being frazzled in the days leading up to the holidays.  Last year was awful in that way and I’ve resolved to approach things differently this year.

I have a show this Saturday.  If you are local, I hope you’ll come visit at the Lincoln School Winter Market!  I plan to do much of my shopping there and then wrap up the rest online.

Happy Thanksgiving to you from me! <3

New Jewelry On Etsy

I have decided to close my ArtFire shop.  It was a difficult decision, because I’m quite fond of ArtFire, but it was just too difficult for me to manage two shops.  I decided it would be better to do one shop well, than to do a mediocre job on two shops.  So I spent most of yesterday transferring my ArtFire jewelry over to Etsy.  It feels good to have everything consolidated in one place!  https://www.etsy.com/shop/LindaLandigJewelry

A few new ceramic components coming later this weekend, too!

Thanksgiving Is Here

I picked my daughter up at the bus depot today and we stopped at our favorite Koren restaurant for lunch on the way home.  Tomorrow one of my brothers and his wife will be arriving and my dad will be joining us for Thanksgiving, as well.  My husband is a fabulous cook and he is taking care of the turkey, stuffing and a rice dish.  My daughter and I will make the pie and veggies, plus I made some cranberry bread the day before.

But right now there is kind of a quiet break in the hub-bub and I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for following me on my blog and over at Art Jewelry Elements, as well.  I am very thankful for every reader, for your comments and your thoughtfulness.  People from all over the world read this blog, but if you’re from the US, then I want to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving this weekend.  And no matter where you hale from, I hope you feel joy and gratitude for the goodness in life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Although the sale in my 2 online shops starts on Thursday, I hope that most of my US readers will get to spend most of Thursday with family and/or friends.  I am offering 20% off in both of my shops.  This is the best sale of the year, so if you’ve been eying something special, now’s the time to nab it.  I have a large local show the first weekend in December, a certainly some of the jewelry in my shops will be headed to new homes that weekend.  But you can pick up gifts for yourself or others, now, while the shops are full and save 20% too!  Here are the links to my Etsy and ArtFire shops.  Just use the coupon code THANKS2013 at check out.
