Holiday Discounts & AJE In The News

 Welcome to Tuesday News Day; the day for jewelry updates and other relevant or possibly irrelevant  news.

I’m a day late on my Tuesday News Day post. We just returned from a month and a half in Mexico and I’m pretty much behind on everything!  We had a fabulous time though and you can be sure I’ll be blogging about our experiences in the upcoming weeks!  In the meantime, the holidays are upon us and that means (among other things) 20% off coupons!

Holiday Discounts!

Now is the best time to stock up on gorgeous, handmade jewelry for yourself and for gift giving!  I am having a 20% off sale in both of my Linda Landig Jewelry shops!  I belong to a number of different jewelry groups and each one is offering different discount coupon codes.  To avoid confusion, I’m only going to list one of the codes here, but don’t worry.  If you have a different code than you see here, rest assured that it will work too! However you can only use one discount code at a time. 😉

Art Jewelry Elements In The News:

In addition to this blog, I also write for the Art Jewelry Elements blog twice a month (every other Friday).  The AJE blog was reviewed in the December issue of Beads and Beyond, a British jewelry magazine.  I was thrilled to discover the lovely review, plus a picture of a pair of my earrings was included as part of the review!

Birthday Sale!!

Celebration Jewelry Sale

This Sunday is my birthday, and as I said in Tuesday’s blog post, that seems like a good enough reason to celebrate with a nice jewelry sale!  However, on Tuesday, I said the sale would be for one day only, and I have changed my mind. We’re going to celebrate for 2 days instead!

Use the coupon code BIRTHDAY2012 and get 20% off your order on Saturday Sept. 22 and Sunday Sept. 23! Just my way of saying “Thank You” for all of your wonderful comments on this blog, your support and enthusiasm.

I LOVE Maxine!

A lot of change and growth has occurred jewelry-wise since my last birthday.  I feel like I’ve found a design path that feels right for me:  color-rich, a bit rustic & a bit whimsical, with a focus on the use of artisan-made pendants and components.

Since my last birthday, I’ve formed valuable online friendships with other jewelry designers, ceramic bead artists, lampwork glass artists and metal smiths.  The highlight of this last year was a crazy, impulsive, last-minute decision to fly out to Philadelphia for Bead Fest.  I wanted to meet as many of my online friends as possible.  It was an amazing weekend that still makes me smile whenever I think about it.

Beady Buddies!

I wonder what the next year holds?  I’m looking forward to finding out and I hope you’ll come along for the ride too. I never take my readers, customers or friends for granted.  I hope you feel valued and know how special you are to me.

So….. hop on over to Linda Landig Jewelry on ArtFire and/or Linda Landig Jewelry on Etsy and put that BIRTHDAY2012 code to good use!  It’s not too early to begin thinking about Christmas!
