Started using Shoppost with my +Etsy shop. :)
For those of you with Gothic tendencies. This pale blue and white 3-D resin Catrina cameo skull necklace dazzles with a hand-applied champagne rhinestone in the eye socket.

Each December, we try to outdo the brilliant, last-minute solution we thought up last year for all the people on our lists who appear to have everything they want already. We start out with the good intention to shop early, but inevitably end up in a last-minute amble hoping to be inspired. But,

DIY Jewelry Holder - Gloriously Made http://klou.tt/vdvc0fgk0fs2
My brother and sister in law came to visit us after Christmas and one morning we were sitting around talking about this project and I was telling her about my dilemma. After some more brainstorming my sister in law suggested a DIY Jewelry Holder, and I knew immediately that was the project that I wanted to make. I had everything to make it except for the gold hooks to hold my jewelry, but I knew those would be east to pick up. I'm also a secret s...

Retro, kitsch & eccentric beads and jewellery
Introduction
Bored with the blah in the local shopping emporium? Yup, been there. Nothing worse than buying a (so you thought) 'unique' necklace, only to discover it elsewhere in a gazillion other colours. Bah!
So, in order to satisfy my thirst for jewellery that fit my style, I started making my own. And that's where Kitsch 'n' Kaboodle Beads came in.

This shop was first set up back in 2010. It started out with me trying to get rid of the excess beads I had from my jewellery making, in a vain attempt to stop me being taken over by them.

It didn't work.

As sales picked up, more stock came in which meant I had more beads than I started with. It then became clear that the shop needed a focus. Realising that most of the beads on offer elsewhere weren't very exciting, I decided to start selling beads that were unusual and less run-of-the-mill.

My jewellery making days were still going, although I was vastly running out of space and couldn't possibly wear all the stuff I'd made (unless I wanted to look like I'd fallen in the jewellery box). So, the lightbulb moment of hey, why don't I sell some of my jewellery in the shop? suddenly dinged over my head.

And in a Twilight Zone-esque twist, Kitsch 'n' Kaboodle beads morphed into Kitsch 'n' Kaboodle beads & jewellery.

Wow, betcha didn't see that coming.
