Thanks to everyone who gave their input last post! I'm going to take your feedback and try to work on those--
I thought I'd do this post a little differently and incorporate my updates + replies to your comments! =)
London's-beauty : Thanks for always dropping by, love! I have done anklets before, wayyyyyyyy back in the day. I will try to make more cuffs in the future =)
D : Thank you for leaving a comment! I stuck to making ONLY sterling silver jewelry for the LONGEST time because I thought I personally couldn't pull off gold-- a fellow jewelry artisan introduced me to the beauty of gold (thanks, STEPH!) and I have been in LOVE. I wear gold earrings all the time now. Lesson learned: you can pull anything off-- just try it. What's there to lose? =)
The Little Dust Princess: Thanks!
KIMB! : I've always been an earrings kinda gal-- so it's always hard for me to make necklaces! I'll try to work with my limited necklace skills and see what I can do =)
Elana: YOU are a mind-reader. I've been planning this collection for a while, including using some AWESOME Negamoon (spelling?) charms that I designed myself, and I'm trying to get them cast in sterling silver. I'm so excited for this!! You can be sure these will be unique and super cute :D
Shiseiten : I'll definitely try to come up with more necklaces. The only issue I have with necklaces is that I like to be unique, I hate it when I see people make pendants out of crystals, but I know a lot of people like that-- however, I feel like other jewelry artisans already covered this ground many times over :X. I definitely have a gold/red necklace in the works for the holidays!
Anna : Hi Anna! It's always good to hear from a Soompier!
I made a new phone charm today =)
and thought about you =). I'll have more coming!
Susan: Have you seen the mother of pearl birdie earrings? I wish to make more earrings with these little cuties :D. I will keep a look out for fleur de lis and celtic designs-- I've stayed a bit away from celtic sterling silver items because they tend to be pricier.
Michelle: Hello Michelle! It's good to hear from you! I PROMISE that I will make some cuffs for the holiday season! Do you have any colors/shapes you'd like to see? Email me!
Kittin : Will do! It seems a consensus that people would like to see more necklaces =)
Jamie: Hello my love. Whenever I think of card captor, I think hearts and wings, lol. I'll try to make some more plain pearl bracelets soon! I'm thinking of coming up with a series of to quality, thick-chained sterling silver charm bracelets-- what do you think?
lee_lena : A while back, I had some moon+heart black/red designs, I'll try to make some necklaces with those combos, hope you'll pick one up ;)
Rachel : I do have bows and star coming, as well as charms!
KittyBonkers: I make a set of Angelic earrings today!
As well as a cartilage earring version:
Were these what you had in mind? =)
Also, I'll definitely pair up with the wings with other color crystals as well :D
vanity-fashionista: I'll try to make some exclusive gift sets for the holidays! That is an excellent idea =). It's not too complicated to wire-wrap earrings, it just takes time and patience. I notice that you like wire wrapped work!
mint: Hmm... I'm not quite familiar with the term "party jewelry"-- do you mean something a bit fancier?
Anna: Anna, you're getting and HQCD Addict mirror with your next purchase! REMIND ME when you place your next order! I made some BAT earrings in honor of Halloween :D
They come with a special goodie bag..
heehee! I think it'll be fun. I'll be adding more to the Halloween collection, maybe cats, too!
I haven't tried the clamp yet, I haven't been pressing powder, I've been making jewelry these passed few days, and catching up on orders!
Woman, you are a hurricane of ideas!
Rena: Candy corn jewelry just sounds so cute.. .I'll have to see if I can make it with polymer clay :D
I'll also have more angelic necklaces =)
CHEECHUN™: CHEEEEEEe!! Me too. lol
Crystal.S: Babe, your new site looks fricken amazing. I haven't gotten a chance to personally tell you yet :(. I made some angelic earrings today!
~Lisa : Whenever I think of those shapes, I think of the japanese hime style-- I LOVE that style. You'll see a bit of that in every piece, thought now like... crazy, haha!
MissPukku : Thank you!
Laura @ Sawan-Heaven: SWEEEEEEEt. What's his punishment if he doesn't get them for you?
Haha, just kidding ;)
contests and such: I'm on a wing binge, too! I think these certain motifs overwhelm the jewelry world in waves-- it's very in at the moment =)
Emmeline L.: Have you seen the PEGASUS necklace, or GOLD necklace? They are both double stranded. I tend to not make many of these because they are pricey, and take hours, even days to complete!
lixuehui2yueh: Thank you! Everyone seems to like the volcanic threaders =) When I design the winter collection, I'll keep in mind your ideas!
Anyway... I wanted to thank you all for coming by, I randomly chose a winner, congrats, lee_lena!! Your small little thank you prize is as follows:
A cookie mirror, some earrings + a He Qi Eyeshadow in "Plum", one of the more popular colors ^^.
If you could email your address, that'd be great!
I also customized a rockstar bracelet:
I hope this post hasn't been too confusing, haha :X
Thought I'd try something new!
Anyway, HQCD's blog has been live for a year now, and I'd love to host another giveaway soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
