» Listings for February 2012

  1. Hi again,

    Thought I'd just post another wee Blog to let you know that there are some new items on the website.

    I've just listed Chocolate Orange Segment pendants and fabulous Chocolate Easter Bunny pendants, both made with fimo clay.

    Also listed a funky pair of Dalek and Tardis earrings made of fimo too.  I'll be listing more items this afternoon.

    We start back at the Stirling University Atrium Traders market tomorrow. You can find the Jude's Jewels stall upstairs from the MacRobert Arts Centre from 10am to 4pm. Pop along and see Nick if you get a chance.

    Website orders are still coming in all the time, so that's keeping me very busy. The Easter range is proving very popular.  Scrabble and Lego items are still selling very well, and all the Sweets and Biscuits items are proving to be a hit with the customers. 

    My Steampunk range is growing all the time amd I've just added a fab new necklace.  I'm planning to add lots more items, so keep looking.

    I'd better get back to work, there are lots of orders to get packed up this afternoon.

    Have a good week.

  2. Evening all,

    I've had a busy day making and dispatching orders, and getting started on some new Steampunk jewellery.  

    I got a lot of vintage watches delivered this morning, so I've been trying out a few new designs.  Earrings, a pendant and a couple of rings. Tie tacks and a few other things will follow.  Once I've stripped the watches down to just the movement, I added a few Swarovski crystals then added the fixings to finish the pieces. I'm very pleased with the results so far.

    I listed a few new twisted sweet necklaces today as well. 2 liquorish and another multi-coloured flump one. Just about to list a curly wurly pendant and matching earrings and a few other sweetie and biscuit items.

    I got a load of old typewriter keys yesterday so most letters are back in stock for the rings.

    I'm just about to use my Sushezi machine for the first time to make my very own real Sushi, to eat, not for making into jewellery.  Hope it turns out all right. 

    Have a good evening.

    Take care.


  3. Hello everyone,

    I hope you are all having a wonderful Valentine's Day.  It's been a while since I last had time to Blog, but I'm back now and ready to get chatty again.

    I've just had a little holiday to re-charge my batteries after the Christmas order rush, and am raring to get started on some new jewellery.  I've got lots of ideas, so keep watching for all the new listings on the Jude's Jewels website.

    We started back at the farmers market circuit on Saturday with Stirling Farmers Market. Then we did Sloan's Market, Glasgow on Sunday.  Paisley and Fencebay markets are at the end of the month, and we start back at Stirling University Atrium Traders on the 23rd Feb.

    On the website Lego jewellery is now almost as popular as Scrabble jewellery, with the lego heart pendants selling very fast this week. The Steampunk watch movement cufflinks are also becoming top sellers.

    I'm just about to list a lot of new Sweet and Biscuit items, as soon as I get everything finished off. Also got a lot of new rings to add. I've already listed quite a few Easter goodies, but there are more to come.

    Also in the pipeline is a new section of Laser Cut Acrylic items with a fun, Scottish slant.

    I've just launched a new Competition as I now have over 2800 Facebook fans so, for your chance to win one of four prizes, pop over to the Competition Page now. And, if you have not already done so, please like my Facebook page via the link at the bottom left hand side of most website pages.

    So have a very happy Valentine's Day, and I'll be back very soon with some new jewellery.

    Take care.
