Quick Update

Quick update then I am off to bed to snuggle with my hubby who is finally home from army reserve training. It has been a long and exhausting week and I haven't gotten much done since my kids and I have been sick...double ear infection, strep throat, and still not sure what mommy has. I only managed to get two things done this week, besides peel myself off the couch, and here they are.
The first pair of earrings are for a wonderful mommy who gave birth to triplets in February, yeah, I'm a little behind! You can read all about the Sather Family here.

These next pair of earrings are a custom pair of earrings that I made for a mother from her daughter to commemorate all her grandbabies, so sweet! I enjoyed making both these pairs of earrings and I hope that the women that receive them love them as much as I do! All right, I'm off to collapse into bed. Have a great Monday everyone!

Still Standing

Well, it has been a long week since I last blogged...if you even want to call it that! We have had quite a few orders to fill, yay! Our first international customer who also turned out to be our first non-paying customer....grrrr! The hubby has been gone only a few days for annual training with the army reserves and I'm already EXHAUSTED! The only good thing about him being gone was last night at 11:30 when I couldn't sleep I decided to create and these are what I have to show for it, well, that and some serious bags under my eyes. We have 12 more days until he returns home so cross your fingers that I make it. If nothing else there should at least be some more new jewelry created.

Busy Week!

It has been a very busy week here for Ella Scott Jewels. We have had quite a few orders to fill, some new shop additions to create and a few other noteworthy projects. So lets get started!!!

These are one of my new spring favorites....our Sour Apple Earrings! These little beauties are made from 20x15mm green glass rondelles and hand made sterling silver earwires. They measure in at just over 2 1/2 inches from the top of the earwire.

These are probably my most time consuming earrings so far, but I LOVE THEM!!! These are our Extravagance Earrings! These beauties are sure to make you the hit of any party! Made with purple, orange, and gold glitter stripped hand blown glass beads and one of a kind handmade copper earwires you can't go wrong! These earrings measure in at about 2 1/4 inches from the top of the earwire for the extra bit of WOW!!!

Finally, this is one of my special projects that I have been working on that I just had to share. These earrings are for a special blogger that I have been following that has had some very heartbreaking experiences recently. The stones that I used, garnet and amethyst, both hold a special meaning and I hope that she enjoys wearing them as much as I have creating them.

More to come on my other special projects and some other earrings that I am hoping to create this weekend...hopefully!!!!

Don't forget FREE SHIPPING in the US through March 31st in my shop! So if you like any of these additions now is a great time to pick them up!!!

Ladies I Need Your Help!

I received an email from one of my favorite local bead stores asking me to donate jewelry or beads to the The "Glass Slipper" Project and I am just dying to do it. The "Glass Slipper" Project is a part of the local "Cinderella Dreams" project which ensures that no young woman is denied her chance to experience a quintessential event of adolescence – attending her Prom. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings--anything sparkly is fair game and will be given new life by the girls who wear them on prom night.

Now my only problem is what to donate. It has been a long time since I have been in high school (we won't go there!) and I have no idea what the teenage trends are right now. I need your help ladies to decide what to make! Please take a look at my shop, Ella Scott Jewels, and see if you think that the there is anything in there a teenager would like. If not, give me some suggestions please. I just got some great candy colored stones in that I haven't gotten to use yet but can always use on this project. Any and all input is greatly appreciated, but hurry I really need to get these done this weekend...they are due by next weekend! THANKS!!!!

Let it snow, and snow, and snow, and snow!

We finally got snow! I haven't seen a snow like this since I was in high school so I am enjoying it quite a bit! We took the kiddos out this morning and they were loving it. My hubby even got a snow day...yippee! I'm not exactly sure how much we got because of the drifts but it is somewhere between 8 and 12 inches. Needless to say things in the city aren't moving quite as fast as they usually are right now, and that is just fine with me. So we are just going to enjoy the rest of the day relaxing, playing some more and drinking a little more hot chocolate. I hope everyone else is staying warm, it is really cold out there.

I don't know if you can see it or not, but that is a tree that fell overnight that is completely covering our driveway. Good times!

Completely shameless plug!
