Annual Fall Equinox Sale!

Happy Monday morning to all of you lovely Tangleweeds collectors! I hope everyone had a weekend that was just what they were needing. I wanted to drop in here today to let everyone know about our annual Fall Equinox sale in the Tangleweeds Etsy shop. Below, I hand curated a selection of pieces I think would be perfect for fall (click on the image to be taken directly to it's Etsy page.) If you'd like to select your perfect fall piece of Tangleweeds jewelry at a 35% off discount (from now until the end of September) simply head on over to the Tangleweeds Etsy Shop and use the coupon code "fall equinox". 

And if you're wondering about the new collection that we keep mentioning, it's still in the works. I'll be photographing the new pieces this week and plan to release them next week, as long as everything goes as planned. In the meantime, enjoy our fall sale!

Spring Time Sale is Here!

Good morning my fine blog readers and followers! I'm just dropping in today to officially announce the yearly Tangleweeds spring sale. Head on over to the Etsy shop and use coupon code "springtime" (all one word) and you'll receive 30% off your entire order. There's a great selection of new designs and classics to choose from. (And more new designs coming later this week and next!) Sale runs now through mid-April. Enjoy!

Fall Equinox is Here

Yes, fall has arrived! Which in the bay area of course means lots of warm weather still to come, but the seasons evolving still gets me all excited for changes: for cleaning and de-cluttering (and not just the home, but the mind too!), for newness in the yard (plants changing colors, some curling up in hibernation for the cold weather to come), and (of course) new jewelry designs! 

I didn't think I was gonna be able to pull off a new collection in time for fall, but it happened! Called Shapes of Fall, this collection is inspired by this beautiful season and features many organic, natural shapes. I've gone less geometric with these pieces and more free-form. And, for the rest of the month I'll be having a 25% off sale in my Etsy shop with coupon code "SeptemberAir." The sale is good on ALL pieces, not just the new ones, fyi. 

I hope everyone has some time to stop and appreciate the beauty of today, the equal balance of light and dark, the changing colors, all of it! I had "scheduled" in some journaling and quiet relective time today, not realzing that I had scheduled it for the equinox. How more perfect could that timing be!

(Lastly, I'll be updating my events page with the rest of my events for the year soon, along with sending out a newsletter to all of my email subscribers. If anyone wants to be added to my newsletter, simply head on over to this page here and I'll make sure you receive my next installment.)

How time flies. . . or listening, wearing, making

It was over a month ago that I posted last here at my new blog. And, yes, I have found a wonderful new hire (two actually!) I'm excited to take Tangleweeds to the next level, one where not everything falls on my shoulder all of the time. That can be one of the most daunting parts about entering into the world of working for yourself. . . But that is fodder for another blog post another time. 

I've been busy gearing up for my holiday fairs, spending time with family, and trying my best to take care of my physical, emotional, and mental health. It is one of those things that starts to slip when I get really busy (like during the holidays) and I am determined to give my body what it needs this time around.  

This post was meant to be my next "segment" of listening, wearing, making but here I am talking about the challenges of running my business. Obviously some posts about this are long over due! (That's also something that may change in the future. I'm looking to expand upon this blog with some regular features. Maybe a "running your own business, the challenges and the glories" is a good feature to consider.)   

But, without further adieu, here's my Listening, Wearing, and Making feature for the week:

Listening to. . . Sharon Van Etten's album, Tramp. Moody, some slightly dance-y songs. Keeping me motivated in the studio.

Wearing. . . mixed up patterns and textures. I suppose some people might call this "clashing" but I say ya just gotta be imaginative! 


Making. . . TONS of bangles. Bangles are new to the Tangleweeds collection and I couldn't be happier about it. Obviously I'm partial to these crescent moon ones. 


Lastly, I hope everyone is enjoying this time of year. The holidays always feel so special to me, even amidst the crazy-ness of rushed schedules. I'm already getting a start on my holiday prep, maybe you are too? I'll leave you with this: please feel free to use the coupon code "holidays2013" in my Etsy shop from now until the end of the year for 30% off your entire order. And remember to slow down and sip on some spiced egg nog sometime soon!
