Treasures for Charity: Instant Karma

Posted by pixe1 on September 30, 2009

Introducing…Treasures for Charity!       Limited Edition! Instant Karma I Fine Silver Bracelet

Instant Karma Limited Edition Bracelet

Instant Karma Limited Edition Bracelet

This fine silver bracelet was designed for the Chinese Auction at The Holly Heilman Cancer Fund’s Harley Poker Run held this September.  Please, check out their website!  They do a lot of great things for cancer patients!  I wanted to get involved and give to a local charity, and this seemed to be a good fit.  I was drawn to this charity because of the death of a friend from cancer this year, and because one of my coworkers’ daughter had just been diagnosed with leukemia. 
www.hollyhcf.org

Get Instant Karma!   This bracelet will be offered for sale for the next 12 months only.  50% of the price of the bracelet will be donated to the Holly Heilman Cancer Fund, an organization that financially assists cancer patients and their families.

Instant Karma  is designed using handcrafted fine silver hammered links, blackstone hearts, and a pink cat’s eye bead. The bracelet is oxidized using a non chemical, toxic free process.  The diamond links represent the chaos that cancer brings to one’s life, the black hearts represent how our hearts feel when a loved one is battling cancer, and the pink bead represents hope…

The photo depicts the original bracelet and your bracelet may differ slightly;  each bracelet is individually handcrafted!  Please be sure to include the length desired for your bracelet!

Instant Karma can be purchased at Pixe’s Treasure Chest and Pixe’s Treasures!

Odds -n- Ends

Posted by pixe1 on February 13, 2009

Along with some of my fellow SATeam members, I’ve been trying to create an item a day.   Well, as usual, life gets in the way, so It’s been more like 2 items every other day!  So, I have been busy in the dungeon putting these little pretties together this evening…

Midnight Rainbows

It’s no secret my fave drink these days is a dirty martini, so,  I would like to  share my “perfect dirty martini” recipe.  Please remember…no drinking and driving, and please drink responsibly!

  • 2 ounces gin or vodka.  I prefer Sapphire Blue Gin
  • 1 ounce extra dry vermouth
  • 1.5 ounces olive juice. I use Dirty Sue olive juice

Pour all ingredients in a martini shaker with ice, shake once or twice,  pour into your fave martini glass, pop in  a few olives, and enjoy!

Now, someone is going to have to have one of these for me because I have to work this weekend, and won’t be able to have one until Monday morning!  I’m a nightshifter…my 9 am is like your 5pm!!  🙂

Pixe’s Picks for Feb. 11, 2009

Posted by pixe1 on February 11, 2009

Good morning, everyone!!  Welcome to this week’s Pixe’s Picks!  This is the place to be to see the coolest shops on Etsy!   Obtain your beverage of choice, sit back, relax, and give a warm Pixe welcome to GrannysKnits and Art4ever!  If you would like to see a larger picture, just click on the thumbnail!

unique hand knit white baby letter sweater

Give a warm welcome to GrannysKnits, who designs and hand knits baby and toddler sweaters.  This is how she got her start:  I taught myself how to knit when I was in first grade,my grandsons are 10 and 2 and a half,so I’ve been knitting for a few years:-)!  She found Etsy through a coworker who crochets.    Grannysknits fave item is the  Unique Letter Sweater, and considers this to be her “baby”.  Each sweater     is different, with different colors and letters hand knit black and white tweedy baby sweater!

Pixe’s Pick!  My fave is the hand knit black and white tweedy baby sweater.  I really like the muted colors and the teddy bear buttons are a real perk!!  Even the little tykes need to look great!!

Amber Anenome Bracelet

Now let’s welcome Jennifer, owner of Art4ever! First off…I must apogize to Jennifer for running her spot a week later than promised…my less than stellar organizational skills got me in trouble!   Jennifer  just opened up shop in December, and she wants peeps to come see her!   

 She tells me she has been making jewelry for about 7 years and has  learned through trial and error. This is how she tells me she got her start is crafting:  I have been creating/crafting things out of all kinds of media for most my life, always exploring new medias.I love beads, all kinds, glass, stone, crystals, etc.

What is Jennifer’s fave item?:   My favorite item right now is one of the items I have featured in my shop. The Amber Anenome bracelet. It has matching earrings that are swinging drops! It is my favorite because is was so fun to make and I love the amber colored beads!

And why Etsy:  I choose etsy after lots of research! Etsy was the only real supporter of true handmade items by artists and artisans. I like how they fully support all aspects of selling/creating/promoting your talent, and they truly give me a feeling of community in the massive world of cyberspace! Yey to Etsy and many thanks to Etsy for giving the opportunity to share and display and sell my creations!

Matte Leaf Jewelry Box

Pixe’s Picks!  Not only does Jennifer create some fabulous jewelry, she is also a clay artist!  I love this Matte Leaf Jewel Box…It really appeals to the nature lover in me!  The soft, muted shades, and the leaves make this a gorgeous treasure!!!  It is a fabulous one of a kind piece of art!!

That’s this week’s Pixe’s Picks!  I hope you enjoyed these very cool shops!  Don’t forget to leave a comment here for them, they would love to hear what you think!!!

Wishing a wonderful, safe, peaceful, and creative week!!      Mich

I just got back from my meeting with the doggie boutique owner, and she loved my WoofWear Jewels!  She bought all 18 charms that I showed her, and wanted the doggy themed jewelry roll that I had made to present them to her, to use as a display!  I’m so excited!  I made my first wholesale sale to a shop owner that I didn’t know personally!!  yeah!   We are also talking about  making some charms with initials on them! 
 
If you are in the Reading, PA area, be sure to visit Godfrey’s Dogdom on Rt. 625 in Mohnton!  She has a great shop with all kinds of great things for dog lovers!!
Wishing everyone a wonderful and peaceful day!!
