Mother’s Day is fast approaching (May 13). As a mom, I’ve always felt that it should be a celebration . . . with parades . . . on a Monday . . . and absolutely everything is closed except restaurants that serve champagne brunch :).
Also, as a mom, I appreciate special gifts . . . like some sort of adornment. There’s always that lovely scarf, my daughter “finger knitted” for me . . . and you can probably guess where I’m headed right? I am a jewelry artist after all :).
I of course have a large selection of hand prints in plaster, hand made cards, and macaroni pictures, from both my children and stains of coffee on the bead spread from a few breakfast-in-bed wobbly moments :).
I say, a piece of jewelry that will remain significant for a lifetime is truly special. I still have the jewelry box my daughter painted at school when she was five and filled with costume jewelry . . . and yes, I do wear some of that jewelry. I still have a heart charm, my son once gave me too.
Adornment speaks to me, as well as those I meet. It tells you something about me . . . it may even create an instant connection.
Starting Monday, April 30, I’ll be posting new items to my Etsy shop for you to peruse and consider for that special “mom” in your world . . . or to treat yourself :). All purchases qualify for free shipping and you’ll receive a secret surprise too! www.phoenixmagyk.etsy.com
Drop hints . . . pass on the information to loved ones, AND special calls are always welcome from young buyers.
Need to see something in person? Want to send your loved ones to take a look? I’ll be sharing lovelies at Xiem Clay Center on May 11 and 12 (Lake Ave., Pasadena, CA.). If that date scares you, call me for an appointment at the shop :). 626-375-9839
I also offer Gift Certificates, attractively boxed – in any denomination. They can be used for a ‘in-stock’ piece or a custom piece of the presenters choice . . . maybe a photo pendant of the family?! You need to call or email me: 626-375-9839; firstname.lastname@example.org
I also teach metal clay classes. Maybe that special someone in your life wants to learn a new art medium. Certificates for classes are either $95 or $105 and can be redeemed for up to a year. These will be on Etsy. www.phoenixmagyk.etsy.com
Have a super-mega-awesome week!
All my best,
Make something everyday . . . even if it’s trouble! – I said that
