My first Curated Front Page Treasury~~

I love to do treasuries! i joined a treasury group, and we make lots of treasuries, our goal, of course to be on the Front Page of Etsy! but also to have fun and promote other artists!
well, this treasury was not one i did under my team guidlines, it was a random pounce on shops with no sales and i wanted to pick the most unrelated items i could! well, it was on the FP on saturday and i didn't even know it!! and , i am so glad , several of the items have sold! WHOOHOOO!!
it is a real thrill to have an item on the FP as well as to have a treasury I made on the FP, WOW!
Congrats to all the great artists in this group, including:
Hope you will check out these fellow etsians and thier really cool art!
Love to you all

Glass Evil Eyes and hair forks and stick, Oh MY!

WE love glass eyes! And this is the time of year for creepy things too! but we think they are fun all year long..hey, who doesn't need an extra eye in the back of thier head, i mean really??
THis is one we did on request , a dark brown eye in silk oak wood on antler....we also had a request for a yellow cats eye in zircote wood on antler and here it is...
WE love making these!!!
When we asked what you would like to see more of some people wanted to see more inlaid forks, but the reason we don't keep alot of those in the shop is that they are expensive to make, and usually someone will say they want one like that one, but with we try to have one or 2 made and ready to buy but they really work better as a custom order, then you get what you want, in the color and wood you love!

Now, i would love to start putting live treasuries up on here, and i am learning how! i hope to start featruing the treasuries i make and that we are included in as well as honor the makers of the treasuries that include our work, because we really, REALLY appreciate you all so much!!

SO, thats it for today, hope you enjoyed the pictures and remember to read our previous post about the holiday custom deadlines!
Love to you all

I don't think we are in Kansas anymore, Toto....

I can't believe it has been so long since i did a post, and i apologize! time is in warp drive here it seems and going faster as the holidays approach!
we are very busy at the studio with custom orders and with making stock to keep that part available for the coming holidays as well. we want to remind everyone about sipping to out of the US for holidays, we will need any custom orders for the holidays BY THIS WEEKEND and customs orders in the US for the holidays by the end of this month. also , for just regular shipping to out of the US leave 3-4 weeks for holidays to be sure your package arrives, unless you wish to pay for upgraded priority shipping...convo us for a quote on that, we are happy to do that for you as well.

Something we have been really glad about is that our box of wood pieces are selling! we thank you who have already bought them, as we are loathe to throw out those pieces, but our shop had become overrun with them and we were in a quandry! we are glad that perhaps boy scouts, instrument makers, hobbyists who may never need a piece of ebony large enough to pay for an entire board are getting to use these lovely pieces!! thank you so much, we will continue to offer them as long as they continue to sell!
