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!

Lets Do The Hop – Bunny Blog Hop

The Art Jewelry Elements Theme Challenge for March is Hares and Bunnies.  The challenge was simple:  Make a rabbit or hare bead or piece of jewelry and share it on March 31st.

I don’t have any rabbit or hare beads with me here in Mexico, so I couldn’t really participate in terms of making something new.  So instead I’m going to share a rabbit necklace that is currently available in my shop, as well as some rabbit jewelry that I have designed and sold in the past.

First off is this delightful “Bunny Love” necklace.  I was lucky enough to snare this double bunny pendant from Nancy Adams of Round Rabbit. Her ceramic work sells fast, so I was pleased to have been at the right place at the right time to grab this pendant.

The Bunny Love necklace is in my shop, which, by the way, is brand spankin’ new!  I’ve been busy this past month setting up my own, stand-alone website.  Some things will remain in my Etsy shop, but my complete line of jewelry and ceramic components will only be available on my website.  The web address is easy to remember. Its just my name and dot com. .www.LindaLandig.com  I will be back in the States soon and all orders placed now will ship on April 7th, via USPS.

Bunny Love Necklace

I love bunnies, so I thought I’d share a couple of my previously sold designs as well.  This necklace features one of Jenny Davies-Reazor’s wonderful ceramic hare pendants.  I made it for display in her both for Bead Fest 2013.

Lunar Hare Necklace

This necklace dates way back to 2010, but it is still one of my favorites.  I love the carved pendant!

I’m really looking forward to seeing all the rabbit and hare designs.  Here are all the links.  Let’s get hopping!

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! ❤

August Component Of The Month Reveal

Rustic Feather Necklace

The talented Rebekah Payne of Tree Wings Studio is this month’s hostess for the AJE Component of the Month Challenge.  Rebekah is well known for her delightful polymer clay jewelry components, but for the last year or so, she has been working with leather, as well.   Her colorful leather feathers are really inspiring.  They come in 2 sizes: large ones for pendants or smaller ones for earring pairs.  I requested the smaller earring size and received the pair in the the upper left of this photo.

Even though these are the smaller sized feathers, they are still close to three inches long, so I decided to use mine as a pendant.  I folded the top of the feather around one of Karen Totten’s ceramic gear links and I secured it with Irish waxed linen cord.  I dangled a copper charm on one side and a copper colored flower with an antiqued brass bird on the other.

The beaded part of the necklace includes lightweight wood beads and Greek ceramic discs. I attached these to a long length of leather, that simply slips over the head, without needing a clasp.

I really like the necklace, but I have 2 questions where I’d appreciate some feedback from readers.  Do you like the charms on either side of the feather, or would it look better without them?  What do you think about the length of the necklace?  Do you think it should be shorter, or not?

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!
