Gallery #2 for the upcoming holiday season!

This is the second gallery of work that will be shown at the three upcoming events I have scheduled. Much of it has been tatted over the past four weeks and finished recently. I like to photograph every item I create as a record of my progress as an artist. My followers and fans are the first to have the opportunity to purchase any of these items before they sell. Contact me through my Blog comments, Facebook, my Etsy Shop or through email (jjskohr@embarqmail.com) if you are interested. Everything that is one-of-a-kind will say OOAK so you will know it will not be reproduced exactly the same.

~MOD embellished with Hematite-a customer favorite!

~Flair embellished with Swarovski Crystals

~New Snappy Tatter design! Sparrow! (OOAK)

I am so excited to finally be able to show this design! It is a variation of my Phoenix and Angel wing designs and has been rattling around in my head for months. Ever since we put up a bird feeder for the first time this spring and I discovered that I was a bird watcher, I have been needing to create this. I have studied the wee birds in my back yard and love the variation of the sparrows. This is the first Sparrow design but I can think of many ways to blend the colors so there will be more from time to time. Created while on our cabin vacation it took several hours to design and shuttle-tat as I diligently created hundreds of uniform picots to make the frilly wing. Stiffened discreetly through the back and embellished with gorgeous bronze colored Swarovski pearls, this is my new favorite! Please feel free to share my newest creation with your friends!

Cheers! Jennifer

The first sneak peek tatted gallery of the holiday season!

With three shows coming up in as many weeks, I am working diligently to create a variety of work for people to explore at my tables. I have learned that it is not in my best interest, because of limited time, to list all of these items in my Etsy shop as at least 50% will sell at these shows. I do, however, like to photograph every item I create to keep in growing photo albums as a record of what I have done. I am up to four albums now! I like to present galleries of this work so everyone can see what I am up to as well as have the opportunity to purchase before it sells at an event. Contact me through my Blog comments, Facebook, my Etsy Shop or through email (jjskohr@embarqmail.com) if you are interested. Everything that is one-of-a-kind will say OOAK so you will know it will not be reproduced exactly the same.

Things are moving along in my Etsy shop transformation.

Updates and improvements are beginning to move along in my Etsy shop. I was happily waylay-ed by a lovely custom order for a Debutante choker with magnificent beading through the weekend. I hope to photo it later today. Then got smashed in the head, literally, by a nasty migraine yesterday. My eye doctor’s appointment was a bit too much and I spent the rest of the day on the sofa. But I got a chance to move some items back into my shop this morning even though my head is still aching a little.

The limited edition ornaments are back online.

Brooches and Stickpins are back.

And my favorite, Snappy Couture designs, are updated and available as well.

Gift Certificates are back too, in denominations of $25 and $50. I will keep posting here as my shop fills up again. And I am working hard to organize myself for a new give-away contest. Here’s a hint to what the prize will be….it would flutter away if it wasn’t pinned down! 🙂

Cheers everyone!

Fa La La La La…20% Holiday Discount and Show Wrap up!

Holiday shopping is in full force and my e-Newsletter came out today with an exclusive discount for email and  Blog followers. The remaining days before Christmas I am offering 20% off 3 items or more in my Etsy Shop to my Subscribers and Free Priority Mail Upgrade for everyone from the 15th to the 21st.

There are two ways to get details on how to get 20% off now and future discounts and coupons, sign up to receive my e-Newsletter by hitting the “Count me in!” button at the left. (If you are signed in with your WordPress account, you may need to send me your email so I can add you to the list as I don’t always automatically get that information.) You can also send your email address to jjskohr@embarqmail.com and I will add your email address to my e-Newsletter family. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Every month I send the e-Newsletter out at the beginning of the month. I give a brief look into upcoming events, family and work life, shop updates and a discount or two for my online shop. Snappy Tatter followers are the first to find out about Give-Away contests too!

My second year at the Keystone Summit last week was wonderful. Now I am back. I have taken a day off, rested, had a bottle of wine, unpacked, counted inventory, re-stored everything and prepared all new work to be photographed and listed in my Etsy shop. I am still working hard! But I want all these listings to be up for the holiday which is coming way way too fast. My husband brought up the Christmas decorations yesterday and I about cried.

Here I am on Friday!

To all the new people I have met this past week and all the returning patrons from last year…Thank you Thank you Thank you!!! For making my show a great success. For being so kind and complimentary. And for spreading the love with your gift purchases for the holiday season. I hope everyone was happy with their Snappy Tatter experience and learned something new about the art of tatting and fiber art.

The top six pics are from Tuesday and the rest are from Friday. I took the experience of being there for two days as an opportunity to see what works best for the patrons. I wanted to know how they best connect with my work. By design? Or by Subcategories? Everyone seemed to have a better experience when all similar items were grouped together (on Friday). They were able to compare what they wanted and find what they were looking for with ease. I also grouped items together by style; Modern/casual, High Fashion, Floral, Fantasy, Holiday and Bugs.

As a final thought to new and future owner’s of Snappy Tatter fiber art: I always guarantee my work. I take pride in completing pieces in the most professional manner. If ever there is a question about cleaning, pressing, size, jewelry components, I am just a click away and always happy to help. The brochures that I handed out should be able to answer any questions on the care of your work on the last page. If you did not receive one, send me your address and I will be happy to email or snail mail it to you. And don’t forget, if your jewelry has Sterling components as most of my jewelry does, store it flat in a sealed plastic bag with the air pressed out to inhibit tarnish. Tarnish occurs because the Silver oxidizes with air so if you have a little moisture eater…like the kind that come in shoe boxes…toss one in. You will have to polish the silver very little. That’s a priceless little secret my Sterling findings supplier gave me.

Well, it is late and I am finishing Summit custom orders tomorrow, and trying to get more listings up on Etsy for everyone. And working on a custom order of 20 unique Snowflakes for an order due Monday. Busy does not explain it!

I post new listings to my Facebook Page and sometimes Twitter. So that’s a place to follow me if you would like to stay in the loop on what is new in my Etsy shop!
