Things are picking up - Sales at AngelqueCreations

I have been really fortunate these past few weeks and I have had one sale from my Etsy shop where the customer purchased two of my pieces (Seafoam bracelet and Poppies of the Roman Forum) and recently I sold 2 more pieces at the weekend Farmer's Market in Abbotsford. 
Mostly I sell my non bead woven jewelry at the Farmer's Market beacuse thease are lower priced and more affordable but this past Saturday I sold my Evil Eye St. Petersburg single chain Necklace and Dragon's Breath St. Petersburg double chain bracelet at the market.  I was so happy and hope that this coming weekend brings me good fortune as well.

Sumertime in the City

Well it is finally summer here in Vancouver we have had two weeks of really great weather and I have been enjoying the sun streaming through the port holes and hatches on the boat.  I have even had to open up the port holes so that I can let the warm summer breaze flow through the interior.  I love the warmth and wish that it would stay forever.  Mike and I have been getting the boat ready to go cruising at the end of July, it will have been over a year since we moved Angelique and a year since she was damaged in the fire.  We finally have all the bits and baubs put back and replaced and are looking forward to 5 days cruising the Gulf Islands.  I have also been busily working away and creating several new necklaces and bracelets and trying to get them listed into my shop AngelqueCreations.

Lost in Cyber Space

I know that I have been absent from my blog for quite some time, but I have been around and lost in Cyber Space for the last few weeks.  I have been so busy promoting members from my bead weaving group "Etsy Beadweavers" that by the time I am done with all the places that I need to update with the group I forget that also need to up date my blog, post pictures to my Etsy shop "Angelque Creations",   figure out what I am going to wear today (if I go out), eat breakfast, clean the boat and other life duties.  So today I am finally going to post some pictures of the jewelry that I have made in the last couple of weeks.  I have several more pieces to photograph and list but I am slowly getting there.  Here is the fruits of my recent labour of love.

Etsy Beadweavers Monthly Challenge "The Secret Garden"

I know that I have been absence since I got back from my vacation in Europe, but I have been busy making new jewelry and the first is my entry to the Etsy Beadweavers monthly challenge.  I created Poppies of the Roman Forum (Palatine Grounds) for "The Secret Garden" challenge because during our visit to the Forum the wild poppies were so beautiful and abundant all over the ruins.   We returned 2 weeks later after finishing our cruise and found that the gardeners had mowed down all the wild poppies, so for me this became my "Secret Garden.  My entry is #2 on the list and the necklace sold almost immediately after I listed it on my online shop AngelqueCreations
The voting starts today July 9 to July 15 and I encourange you to check out the web site Etsy Beadweavers to cast your vote.  My entry is listed as #2 but I encourage you to vote for your favorite as there are many wonderful entries once again.
