Etsy News and Specimen Jars

I've now set up my Etsy shop for shipping to all of Europe as well as the US, Canada, and Australia. Etsy just introduced this wonderful new shipping region feature that makes it easy to set shipping to large regions of countries. This makes it easier for those of us who would like to offer more international options.

I've also been making some more specimen jar necklaces. Here's a couple more, brain and heart.

Frankenpods and Upcoming Events

Halloween is coming up in a couple months. My jewelry generally would be fun for Halloween with the squid and fetuses in jars but I wanted to do something really fun for the holiday. So the Frankenpod was born, a creature that would have been created by Dr. Frankenstein if he were a cephalopod. So far I've only done the first test necklace a cuttlefish frankenpod.

I also have some upcoming holiday sales:

Labor Day Weekend Sale during September 4-7 - Half-off shipping and discounts on some items.

International Cephalopod Awareness Day on October 8 - Free shipping and goodies for all purchases of cephalopod jewelry, ornaments, and tins. Half off shipping and goodies for Perma-Pets.

Supplies and a Great New Hat

I've been starting to stock up for the holidays. Soon I need to order more clay and jewelry findings. This week I got enough little jars to keep me making specimen jar necklaces for a while, 50 to be exact, got them from judgedredge on eBay. Also a whole quarter pound of itty bitty watch parts from ChaoticSupplies on Etsy which should keep me supplied to make steampunk cephalopods for quite some time.

I also got a goody for myself. This absolutely amazing vintage bowler from Dress Up Doll Vintage on Etsy. She even included a cute matching scarf.

This week I'm working on new jewelry. I have quite a to do list that includes Frankenpods for halloween (yep, frankenstein cephalopods).

Starting a Fan Page

I've set up a brand new page on the website all for fans of Noadi's Art. Right now it's sad and empty so if you've bought anything from me get a picture of yourself modeling with your Noadi's Art treasures and send them to me. If you also want a link back to your site, blog, or twitter make sure to include that as well.

New Projects

I've been busy making lots of new stuff lately. Most of it has been replacing things that sold but I have a few things to show off.

First is this Cuttlefish Specimen Jar necklace that I absolutely love. Of course once I started doing these necklaces I just had to make a cuttlefish one.

I've also been doing some fun illustrations lately that I'm putting on products in my Zazzle Shop so you can get them on tshirts, stickers, and other goodies like that. It started with this holiday/birthday octopus that I sketched and I'll eventually have a rubber stamp made out of it for making cards.

Then since I was on a roll I sketched up this nautilus and squid that I'm on the process of reworking in Inkscape and they'll be up in my shop soon.

Goodies from Etsy

I love to shop on Etsy as well as selling there. It just has so much cool stuff and I recently got a couple very geeky presents to myself.

First is this great necklace from Surlyramics that says "Be Skeptical".

The other goody is this amazingly cool plush trilobite from Weird Bug Lady.

Trilobite Attack!
