Bramblefae Commissions

I’m Taking Commissions!

You can commission all sorts of stuff!

As we all get ready for the holiday season and we begin planning out gifts, I know I always try to look for cool and different things for folks I gift.  Which makes now a pretty good time to remind folks that I am gladly taking commissions.  If you have an idea, feel free to bring it to me.  I use Etsy for commissions and I have a walk through for the process here (and part 2 is here!).

I can do sets, too!

I can do all manner of jewelry pieces, elf ears, ear cuffs-whatever you want, really! And I love commissions that take me outside my comfort zone!

Seriously, folks, don’t be afraid to hit me up on twitter or something to get a commission started! Now’s the perfect time!

Social Media is fun!

Heartring1

Generally speaking, anyway. 🙂

I’m pretty active on different sorts of social media both for Bramblefae Boutique and personally and I figured it would be a good idea to kinda go over all of it in case ya’ll want to see what I’m up to at any given time. 🙂

I have the Bramblefae page on Facebook, but I find that I use it less and less over time because, frankly, I seem to reach more of you folks through other means. Like Twitter!

I tweet about all sorts of stuff from video games and music to personal stuff (Not TOO personal. 🙂 ) and all sorts of Bramblefae stuff!  It is probably my favorite form of social media right now because I can talk to folks on the fly.  I can answer questions and even just chat with folks on twitter.

I love Instagram and sometimes I think I go a little crazy with all the picture taking, but there we are. 😀 This is right now the best place to get Work in Progress pictures, although I am trying a new thing.

That new thing would be Snapchat.  I still don’t know very much about how it works, but I do see that I can use it to show folks the progress of a piece throughout the day, so if anyone wanted to see what I was working on, while I was working on it, basically, they can go check out my story there.  If you have it, my username is (shockingly) bramblefae. Feel free to add me! If you don’t have it, download the app and then add me. 😀

All of that is not even counting Handmade at Amazon and the Etsy shop! Those two will continue to be the best way to actually buy my stuff (And to commission me!)

Of course that doesn’t take away what I do here. This is the best way to keep up with updates, and tutorials and such. (Yeah, I said tutorials. 🙂 ) Thank you all for keeping up with me and what I do in whatever media you choose, and for helping me bring my dreams to life. 🙂 Ya’ll are awesome.

Decorating All The Things!

Christmas ornament! :)

I like Christmas time.  I like the baking, I like the build up and I like the decorating.  My grandmother made ceramic Christmas ornaments when I was small-she would even let me “help” paint them sometimes. I think everyone in my family has at least one of her ornaments and a lot of my creative work is done with her in mind. She was a very creative woman, and I am thankful that her creative spark was passed down to me.

So, I wanted to try my hand this year at making ornaments for other folks to enjoy, to maybe hand down through their families.  I’ve got one design on Etsy (Which you can get here! and here!) and Handmade at Amazon, they look like this:

"Striped" wire ornaments

I also have another design-One example is at the top of the post and another is below, that will ONLY be available on Handmade at Amazon. Yes, it’s my first “Amazon Exclusive”!

I also have one of a kind single ornaments and sets that I’ll be adding to the shops over the next few weeks, so keep watch for that special ornament, yeah? And if you have an idea for a more personalized ornament, come to me and I’ll see what we can figure out!

I am so excited to share this with you folks! Bramblefae Boutique is branching out a bit and starting today, you can shop with us at Amazon!

How cool is this?!  I’ve been working hard to get things made and ready for this and I will be adding new things constantly!  I do not have words for how excited I am about this new venture!

Check out the shop, let me know what you think and feel free to offer suggestions! Thank you folks for remaining awesome and inspiring!

Holiday Schedule and Info

Filigree2

Lots of folks get very excited for the winter holiday season. I know I do! And I will be joyfully taking jewelry commissions leading up to the holidays. However, I’ve learned from past holiday seasons that to be the best I can for ya’ll, I need let everyone know my schedule for commissions.  That way we can all be happy and chill till 2016. 😀

I’m also gonna keep this post up to date because this can change if I get more orders than I think I will. 🙂

First, I need to note that I don’t do rush shipping. There are a couple reasons, and I *am* looking into different ways that I can offer it, so my hope is that in 2016, that’ll be something I’ll start doing.

So basically, I’ll be taking custom Christmas/Holiday orders from now till December 11th.  After that, I’ll take a break from commissions till after the holidays.  That will give me a few days to get any remaining commissions out-and *should* get there by Christmas.

I’ll keep my shops open through Christmas, of course, but after the 11th I will make no promises about getting items there before the 25th, so please plan accordingly. 🙂

In the event that I get so many commissions I can’t keep up (This hasn’t happened thus far, but still. 🙂 ), I will update this post and repost it with new dates if need be.

In a nutshell, here’s the deal:

When can you start ordering commissions for the holidays? Now

Where can I buy things from you?  Here and Here!

When will I stop taking them? December 11th

Can you get something rush shipped? No, not currently.

Does this mean I should order now instead of later? Yes.

Do you still love me? Always.
