Blog Feature by Kay, and Christmas in July!

A really talented jewellery artist, Kharisma Ryantori Sommers of Popnicute on Artfire, has featured some items from my store on her blog. The blog post is called For the Love of Miniatures and Christmas in July. Thanks so much, Kay.

Kay makes really lovely ribbon pendants out of solid copper, and also many pretty wire-wrapped pieces. These are my absolute favourites:



Be sure to check out her shop. I really wish I could solder and fuse like she does. I can’t even wire wrap right now . I need to expand my skill set!

ArtFire - Buy Handmade - Sell Handmade

The Christmas in July promotion is starting this Monday, so it’s definitely a good time to buy! I, too, will be having a 10% off storewide sale in my ArtFire store, from 12th to 25th July. Prices will be updated, so no need for buyers to do anything. For my Etsy store, I will give back 10% as a refund through PayPal, if the code ‘CIJ’ is sent to me during checkout or in a convo. Postage costs aren’t included in the promotion, but since I offer flat rate shipping, it’s pretty cheap if you order a number of items. 😀

Get your Christmas presents done really, really early. Happy shopping!

Artist Review on Plug Market

This sure is a week of features and promotions!

A big hearty thank you to Andrew Weaver of Plug Market for writing an article on me and my polymer clay miniatures, entitled “Artist Review: How a formal education enhances your craftsmanship”. Andrew is a professional marketing consultant who is writing about artisans to help promote their products, as well as provide valuable advice on how to effectively market handmade products online. Definitely has a space on my bookmarks list! I already found a few tips that I just have to try.
