First I'd like to apoplogize for not having posted for the past FIVE days. I knew I was behind a couple, but didn't realize it was five. hand to head.. I've been catching up on my reading and evidently lost track of time worse than I'd thought. I'm sorry. The next two weeks will be very busy as I have jury duty and have a lot of stained glass to make besides fusing to do.
Here are my last five listings in my Artfire Studio, Willow Walker Designs in order from the oldest to the newest.
1-Chocolate & Amber Dichroic Art Glass Swirled Wire Wrapped Pendant
2-Mutara Nebula, Dichroic Art Glass Wire Wrapped Earrings
3-Adjustable Rainbow Colored Dichroic Art Glass Wire Wrapped Ring
4-Autumn Leaf Orange Dichroic Art Glass Wire Wrapped Pendant
5- Amethyst, Silver and Purple Dichroic Art Glass Wire Wrapped Earrings
I hope you enjoy these!

My newest listings, Pink, Gold & Blue Dichroic Art Glass Swirled Wire Wrapped Pendant and Chocolate & Amber Dichroic Art Glass Swirled Wire Wrapped Pendant!
As the holidays are nearly upon us I am now offering free shipping for the holidays!
A bit of very good news. I finally seem to have my karma cleaned up and am back in the good graces of the powers that be. I re-arranged my booth (stall?) at the Bend Indoor Markets. People were actually stopping and looking again and my sales went back up to where they were before I moved over four feet, against the wall and 180 degrees. Also my fannypack that went MIA three weeks ago with my wallet and ID turned up. Evidently I hung it on the fireplace screen at my BFF's apartment. Black against black. We all looked at and walked past. LOL!

Just listed these pretties, Bronze & Citrine, Dichroic Art Glass Wire Wrapped Earrings. Another stunning addition to the Elegance Collection.
Another slow day at the market. We've had a much better turn out this weekend, but still not enough interested in jewelry. Some days are like that though. I think that as it get closer to the holidays that the business will improve.
I am still taking entries for the give-away!

Here is the newest listing in the Elegance Collection. Blue Dreams, Dichroic Art Glass Wire Wrapped Necklace. 14k gold filled wire and chain, dichroic art glass cabochon and crystal beads.
The following is a direct quote from an e-mail I received this morning.
"RED FRIDAYS ----- Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing red every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops used to be called the 'silent majority'. We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers.
Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday - and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that.. Every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar will wear something red.
By word Â of mouth, press, TV -- let's make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers.
If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, Â co-workers, friends, and family. It will not be long before the USA is covered in RED.
The first thing a soldier says when asked 'What can we do to make things better for you?' is.....We need your support and your prayers.
Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example."

Here is the newest Elegance Collection listing, Burgundy Gemmies, Dichroic Art Glass Wire Wrapped Earrings. Just listed them in my Artfire Studio, Willow Walker Designs this morning!
I have decided to go ahead and move some of my categories over to my other Artfire studio, The Glass Goddess. I have a few details to work out before I move them over there. So until the end of the month they are on sale for 40% off the regular price. I will be moving my Modern Bold Earrings, Modern Bold Pendants and the Art Deco Collection.

(I do have jury duty November 2 thru November 15th. If for some odd reason I am tied up due to this I will draw & post the names as soon as I can!)
I'm only listing one new item per day due to the fact I watched to much Netflix and unintentionally used 75% of my monthly allowance in the first ten days of this month. (blush)

I'm finally intoducing my newest jewelry collection! The "Elegance Collection" I know I've been tempting you all for weeks with these pieces. I wanted to time this with the grand opening of the juried jewelry exhibit the first few pieces of this collection are part of in Sage Gallery, on the coast of Oregon in Bandon.
To celebrate I will be doing several things. One is I'm going to do a give away here on this blog! I will be giving away not one, but two pendants! The pendants shown above, my red Sweetheart pendant and the lovely white and gold floral on blue pendant! To enter to win one of these lovely pendants all you have to do is leave me a comment here on my blog. (appropriate, please or it will be deleted and your name will NOT be entered) I will write the names onto slips of paper and put them in a container. At the end of the time period I will randomly draw two names out of the pot. If you help promote this event I will add your name into the pot again! You have to leave me a link of where you promoted this studio at. (I have to be able to follow it!)
I have listed these stunning Black Cherry Delight, Dichroic Art Glass Wire Wrapped Earrings in my studio today. This is the first official listing of the new "Elegance Collection". I have put some items that were already in my studio into this category as they seem to fit the best.
Also I would love to hear opinions on an idea I am toying with. I am very tempted to hi-grade my studio and move a portion of my items to my other Artfire studio, The Glass Goddess. Leaving the fancier, higher end goodies in my Willow Walker Designs studio.
