Jewelry in production, minor delay and store phone #

STORE UPDATE: Supplies for the jewelry have been stuck in transit, so it’s taking a little longer than hoped, but should have everything before the end of the month. Also, if you tried to call the shop there was a disconnect with the phone, that’s been corrected. Sorry about that, and a big thank you to those who emailed me the issue.


Production update

It’s been a very busy two months at the School I teach at, but it doesn’t mean new works haven’t been in production.  Now that the semester is over I’m able to completely focus on working on these new works.  Over the weekend I’ll finish up the last of the commissions and send those out. Then it’s time to make the next batch of jewelry. 
      In the coming weeks the End of Summer sale will begin.
Combo prints, buttons, posters, Jewelry and some limited goodies will be available. I’ll talk more about this once it’s ready to go live.  Until then….
