500 Followers on Twitter!

Folks! That’s wild that 500 people give a crap at all about what I have to say! Thank you so much.  I’ve always used Twitter as something of a mixture between business stuff and personal stuff. So, my twitter feed is full, at any given time, of current events talk, video games, music and of course whatever’s going on with Bramblefae Boutique.  I love being able to talk to folks in real time, and the 140 character limit is teaching me about being concise, which is a good skill to learn, especially for someone who meanders as much as I do!

Anyhow, I’m having a little Thank You giveaway over on my twitter and ya’ll are welcome to jump in on it!

Twitter is fun! :)
Twitter is fun! 🙂

The rules are simple: You need to be following my twitter account on Friday August 28 at 10pm Eastern time and you need to have retweeted the tweet that’s pinned to the top of my twitter page (It will have the above graphic in it!).  That’s it!  Then after 10 on Friday, I’ll go through the retweets and assign a number to every person who retweeted, then using an online random number generator, I will pick a winner!

Here’s exactly what you’ll get- One ring, to your size specifications in the style of the one in the graphic. You’ll get your choice between silver, gold, or rose gold Parawire, and your choice between three small raw rubies, or raw yellow or blue sapphires (or, I suppose, any combo of the three).  The ring in the picture is rose gold and ruby, to give you an idea. It’s got a value of 25 dollars (American), and I will send it anywhere.

Thank you folks, very much, for your support of my jewelry designing endeavors.  I love ya’ll for it, and I hope to see ya’ll when I hit the next milestone!

How to

How to Measure Your Ring Size Without A Printer

GarnetRoseGoldRing2

When you see me in person to size a ring, I’ve got the fancy ring sizers. (Well, I think they’re fancy!)  Generally when you order online from me, I’ll direct you to any number of printable ring sizers.  They’ve got varying degrees of accuracy, but I can work with them.

So, what happens if you don’t have a printer? Well, since this happened very recently with me, I got to looking on the internet to see what I could find.  I don’t know if this is a perfect fix, but it’s a start, anyway!  Feel free to try it out and let me know how it coincides!

What you’ll need:

A ruler and a thin strip of paper. That’s it! Oh, and scissors to cut the paper!

  1. Take the scissors and cut a thin strip of paper.
  2. Wrap the paper around the finger you want to measure. Try to keep the paper near your knuckle, because a ring has to be able to go over your knuckle.
  3. Mark the spot where the paper meets and measure the distance with your ruler.
  4. Use this little chart thing to determine your ring size. Rings also come in half sizes, the measurements of which will fall somewhere in between the whole sizes.

I found this chart online, so no credit to me. 🙂
