Bring traffic to your website

Expose your business online with a creative, professionally made video.
After a number of attempts to create a video from the pictures of my jewelry design, I realized that I should be better concentrating on what I am doing the best. To learn just the basic technical tricks of creating a video takes enormous time. Why should I spend precious time to train myself on video production, while I could design and produce jewelry?
A well made video will increase visibility and bring more traffic to your website and business.
After I posted a video on the YouTube, it was selected and linked for viewing on some other websites. (I got a notification about it through the settings on my primary site).

One of a kind Design

If you like this idea you can make video yourself but my advice: ORDER video from a professional source while you are enjoying doing the best.
After you will have you Video presentation done don’t forget to submit it on:

  • Facebook page

  • Flickr – yeap you can now put your video to flickr

  • YouTube channel

  • You Blog

Bar link chain review and feedback

Review bar link chain jewelry supplies.

In this post I’d like to make review of one of my most used bar link chain. If you never worked with this chain you definitely should give it a try. In my shop I’ve got it in Sterling silver and 14K GoldFilled as by the foot or buy wholesale.

bar link chain gold sterling bar-n-link chain

The size of the solid bar is 7x1mm it’s not a tube. Te size of the ring link connector is 3mm and the ring is soldered. You can be sure it’s a pretty strong chain.

I used this chain in a many style and design and got only positive feedback. Never broke, not to heavy not to light.

Here is the feedback from one of my customer!

"This is the very chain I've been searching for. Being an avid Artfire-Only buyer, I was thrilled to see it available here, at GreatSupplies!

The shimmering effect is one I crave and one I've wanted to offer in my designs for my customers/clients. This is a solid chain and while it seems dainty, it is incredibly strong. I try to exclusively use only solid metals in my work, and I very much prefer Sterling Silver or Gold-Filled, so this has been tremendous! Thanks, in no small part, to the solid construction of this Bar-n-Loop chain, I have the quality-control confidence necessary in my supplies. As a designer, it is paramount.

Holidays gift ideas birthstone

blue topaz white gold
Holidays are coming Let's start gift shopping for christmas. As I'm into fine jewelry let me give you some gift ideas by birthstones in November and December. You can find some of my work at my shop and new BLOG POST about December Birthstone Jewelry

November‘s original Birthstone was Yellow Topaz and the Sagittarius Zodiac stone. November's modern gemstone, Citrine, is as warm as a Van Gogh painting of sunflowers. The name Citrine comes from an old French word, "citrin", meaning lemon. The gift of Citrine is symbolic for both hope and strength. With its warm brightness, this gemstone is ideal for enabling anyone to get through the tough times in life!

December’s Birthstone Blue Topaz is derived from the Sanskrit word "tapas," meaning fire. This is because Blue Topaz was considered by ancient civilizations to have cooling properties. Blue Topaz is the hardest of the silicate minerals. The three shades of Blue Topaz are Sky, Swiss and London Blue. The latter is the deepest blue; traditionally a gift of Blue Topaz is symbolic of love and fidelity. The white topaz is a strikingly beautiful stone, often laced with golden edges or flecks. As with most white stones, the white topaz has is associated with the air element and clarity of vision, thoughts and emotions. Egyptians referred to white topaz as the "gem of the sun" and wore it as a way to invoke the protection of the Sun God Ra.

Tutorial how to make hammered wrapped earrings

I made this style and get a lot of feedback and girls were asked HOW did you made them !?
So this tutorial combines two main techniques, wire wrapping and hammering. After you make your first earrings, you will be empowered with the creative edge to make multilevel dangle drops and make different beautiful pendants. You can work with as expensive or cost effective gemstones as you like. These techniques will work with both metal and beautiful glass beads as well. The key part is the bar link chain. You might find it at your lockal bead shop.
