A warm hello!

Oh! This is such a fun time of year! The fall weather is upon us, the kids, and adults are gearing up for Halloween! I’m even considering dressing in a costume for Market Wednesday Halloween week! Hmmm…What shall I be?

Caring for your handcrafted jewelry

This is the last installment for caring for your handcrafted jewelry. This month the discussion leads us to cleaning.

If you store your jewelry properly, cleaning is easy. But for those of us who forget to put our jewelry away safely, and leave it on the vanity in the bathroom, tarnish does become a problem.

The best way to clean jewelry is either with a soft cloth and some warm soapy water if it’s truly dirty, then polish with a jewelry polishing cloth, then dry the jewelry thoroughly. There are jewelry cloths on the market that both clean and polish jewelry, and that’s what I use!

I caution against using any chemical or fancy cleaning systems for they can change the appearance of any stones in your jewelry. Besides, these chemicals are probably toxic, and no good for us anyway.

Following all the tips in the previous newsletters should help to keep your jewelry looking like new for a long time to come!

Introducing…

Treasures for Charity! Get Instant Karma!! Limited Edition.

Last month I designed, and donated a bracelet for the Holly Heilman Cancer Fund to be given away at their Chinese Auction.

This bracelet is now available to you and can be seen at Pixe’s Treasures. 50% off all sales from this bracelet will go to the Holly Heilman Cancer Fund. Hopefully, next year I will be designing a new piece of jewelry for them! Help support this wonderful cause!

Save Some Copper Sale!

Since we all like to feel warm and cozy in October, all copper jewelry is on sale for the month of October, and has been marked down 15%. Copper is such a beautiful, and warm looking metal, and may just help with those cold weather aches and pains!

This blog is about…..

Posted by pixe1 on November 10, 2008

I have made the decision on how to use this blog….it will be about tips on buying handcrafted jewelry, caring for jewelry,  and will be about the stones (not the rock group, but the stones I use in my jewelry, and some that I don’t).  I plan to write a weekly blog and if there is anything you want discussed, let me know.   I am open to suggestions.   Monthly, I plan to discuss the birthstone of that month.  I also plan to  announce future sales that will take place on my etsy site.   Also, my sale items are also on sale at the craft show I am at that month.

So, to give you a heads up …For the month of December, all turquoise jewelry will be on sale at my etsy shop,   Pixe’s Treasure Chest,  and at the craft show at Wilson Southern Junior High School, December 6, 2008.
