With the holidays over and a new tax year beginning, I would love to buckle down and get a lot of new items in my Etsy shop. What do I have planned for this year? First, expect a lot more earrings. I got a great Dremel rotary tool for Christmas, and it will make churning out ear wires a snap! These cup burrs are en route from WidgetSupply.com and should cut the amount of time I spend on each wire down by a huge percentage. (Hand filing those babies takes a long time, and I always manage to nick my fingernails in the process.) The 1.2mm size is just right for 20 gauge wire. I will also be doing a version of my tassel earrings in customized sports team colors, starting with scarlet and gray, of course! I gave out a few of the first pairs as Christmas gifts this year. They’re like little pom-poms for your ears!
Happy New Year! January 1, 2012
