Sweet Wrist Jewels...

Hello friends! Thanks for stopping by today. My small bracelet collection has sold out for this weekend's jewelry drop...but I wanted to take a second to explain to you how to get first dibs on any of  my latest designs or similar pieces that you see here. Lately my pieces have been selling out before they make it to Etsy. Etsy is the last place they land due to Etsy's ever escalating fees and their lack of service for those fees. So, every weekend I debut them first over in my Instagram shop, and for the basic reason that it is so much easier and so much faster to click a picture with my phone and upload the pieces to that particular platform. When listing new pieces over in Etsy, it usually takes hours upon hours to edit and upload pictures, descriptions of items and item tagging info. So please, if you see a piece you like or have liked in the past, please come and visit me over on my Instagram page. Here is a direct link to my Insatgram shop:   https://www.instagram.com/christinewallacejewelry/  and I also offer better deals over there in most cases as I am not incurring shop fees on that platform. I am always hanging out over on my IG platform so there is always a way to reach out to me there and get a response very quick. Also, if you have seen something that you have liked in the past and missed out on it, do, please reach out to me and see if I might be able to re-create it. In most cases I have additional or similar items to come very close to re-creating the original...this always poses such a fun challenge for me and I really do enjoy doing it.


On another note, getting ready to leave my happy place for a couple of weeks to take care of some important business stuff, so I will be taking the next couple of weekends off from the bench. But, I promise to be back the first week in July with some new bejeweled, bedazzled beauties! And that exciting annual summer gem show is coming up again next month, so I will have lots of new goodies to offer from that too. If you are looking for something in particular or special, give me a shout out, and I will be happy to be on the lookout for it for you.

 Have a great week everyone!

Hello friends! Having a super heavy heart for our military families this weekend. Let us be sure to remember and honor their great sacrifices on this weekend and every weekend. Freedom is never free and I am so thankful for their current and ultimate sacrifices. Godspeed  to our beloved Military heroes! 


This weeks collection...






As of blog press time a few of these have sold. So please reach out to me if you are interested in finding out more about anything from this particular collection. Since most of these sold so fast this past weekend, I will work on another big earring collection for this coming weekend's jewelry drop.
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend everyone!

The Warrior Medallion Collection...


Well, I've finally made it back to my summer 'happy place' and I'm happy as a lark and back creating.


Been creating in a bit of mountain studio chaos, but it's still an amazing place to be!
Slowly putting the pieces to my new studio together, so now when I arrive here for the summers I'll be up and running the minute I arrive. What's better than one studio??? a second studio in the mountains, but of course!





I've also managed to create a small collection this week during all the hoopla of relocating half of my studio 9 hours away from my home studio. This weeks pieces are all centered around beautiful French medallions that feature fearless warriors. here's a little peeky....














Come see more of these three pieces later today in my Etsy shop. Or you can always reach out to me earlier, either here, over at Etsy or on my IG page. Happy Summer my friends, hope you are finding your 'Happy Place' about now also!!!

Back At The Bench...


hello my blog friends!!! Got back to the jewelry bench this past week and back to the soul soothing design and creating that I love and crave so much!!! But over the last few weeks I was able to get a lot of things accomplished that I had kept putting off...like photo organizing on my computer, because I literally have over 100,000 jewelry archives on here...and worked on getting my yearly taxes together and organized. The latter is always the most daunting task of the year. I was still not able to leave for my happy place for the summer due to the gas pipeline shutdown, but the hubs and I are currently working on getting there this week sometime for sure! So stay tuned for some 'Mountaintime'!!!
But in the meantime, here's a peek at this past week's creations...all of them feature little birdies to help usher your jewelry and wardrobe into a fabulous summer....











Thanks for stopping by to check on my latest work. 
Be back soon with all the mountain stuff!
Happy weekend to you all!

A Little Time Off...

Happy Saturday Jewel Friends!!!I just wanted to take a second to let you all know that I am going to be taking the next few weeks off from the jewelry bench to focus on packing up some of my studio to take with me for the summer months in the mountains. I also needed a little refresher to recharge the old creativity igniter. So with that said....I will be back soon with more designs, but in the meantime I will be sure to share my beloved mountain time with you here and over on my IG page....I have two huge gem shows coming up with lots of summer projects in the works!
Have a great weekend everyone!!!

New Castings And Some Agates...



Hello blog friends! I have some new treasures this week that feature some of my latest castings from some pieces from my personal collection (that I am so excited about)...along with an older casting too.  There are cherubs riding seahorses, Sacred Hearts of Mary rosary centers, and an older casting of mine, a pair of  French Ava Maria monograms .... all now turned into earrings!
 Here's a sneak peek at this week's collection...








I also have two new gorgeous Dendritic Agate pieces from India that I have mounted into old settings and made into some sweet little poetic necklaces...




If any of you would like first dibs on any of my designs in the future, please come and visit me over on my IG (link in column on left of blog) page on Saturdays and early Sunday mornings for the first postings of my newest works.
I have been attending church services for the last several Sundays and it makes getting this blog post with the new pieces in it before service almost impossible.
So please join me over on Instagram for the earliest possible pictures of any of my latest collection. Thank you all and see you back here or over on IG (link in column on right of blog) very soon. 
The few pieces that are left of this collection will be available over in my Etsy shop later this afternoon.
