News from Pirate Treasures!

Ahem, it's been a while (again) hasn't it?! My excuse this time is that I've been decorating non-stop for what seems like forever. I'll blog about that soon, with photographic evidence, when it's all finished.
Apart from painting, painting and more painting, I have opened a shop on Etsy at last. I've been intending to do it for a year, since leaving Folksy, so now it's done. I only opened it at the weekend so it isn't fully stocked yet, but I had a sale very quickly so that's good news!
At the moment there is some Day of the Dead inspired jewellery, steampunk jewellery and vintage inspired Paris charm jewellery in the shop. I will of course be adding more as soon as I can.

The website has some cool new jewellery too. I have been using some more of the charms I bought in the summer to make things like hot air balloon necklaces
and octopus earrings. These can be found in the Steampunk and Vintage sections on the website.

I have also been making some more Day of the Dead jewellery for the website, which is in the Contemporary jewellery section. I recently bought some glass chilli pepper charms, so have been adding them to the designs, along with some sugar skull beads I made myself from polymer clay and decorated with acrylic paints.

I'd better get back to painting the walls and leave you with a promise that I'll blog again within the next month!!
