The biggish news....

So, since posting my "big news is coming post" I've learned that I have a lot of impatient friends - love you guys! ; ) Here goes....

I've created my own, little Etsy shop - Angel Face Designs - please go check it out and tell me what you think! I am super open to suggestions!

I feel like I've always been a pretty creative person, and throughout the years I've explored several different creative outlets. For the last few years I've been really obsessed with jewelry (ok - my parents will probably tell you I've been obsessed with jewelry from birth, but I digress...) Anyways, I started making my own jewelry a few years ago as a fun hobby, and the occasional gift. Recently I've been really into the very organic, handmade-looking stamped jewelry. After buying more pieces than I would like to admit I figured I could probably do it myself. I got some tools, and after playing around for a bit I've come up with my own line - Angel Face Designs.

One of my favorite things from the line are the "Whimsical Wine Charms":
I feel like they are very "Heather..." I'm also loving this "beach bum" neckalce - hello summer:

Anyways, those are just two small previews of my new line. Please check out the website - http://www.afdesigns.etsy.com/ and leave me any comments or suggestions! (One thing I know I need to upgrade are the pictures...I just figured out a better setting to use, but since Leila took a *very* short nap today I was only able to take pictures of the wine charms with the different setting.)

SO....to kick off my new jewelry line, how about a GIVEAWAY?!?! Who doesn't love free stuff?! Here's how it will work: you have from now until next Thursday (6/19 - George Michael concert night) to enter. To enter leave a comment on this post, and make sure to leave your name. You can enter up to FIVE times. On Friday morning I will do a random number generator to pick a winner, and the winner can choose any one item from my new Etsy shop. Sound fun? Start commenting, and thanks for checking out my shop!!!

xoxoxox, Heather

PS - very special thanks to Donna for coming up with my awesome logo - you are so talented, girl! Please check out Donna's shop - http://www.swishdesigns.etsy.com/

Sheila said...

You know, I really must be an idiot. For some reason, I thought you already had an Etsy shop. I guess it's because I knew you were starting to make necklaces, and I KNOW that you are super crafty and creative. Well, that is very cool and I'm excited to check out your site!

Ryan said...

I keep checking out your shop to see what's new and I keep coming back to the necklace with the 2 discs (okay - so one is a ring)...I may have to order that soon! I might have to ask for a special request and do one heart and the ring...is that possible? I'll email ya for sure.

(oh - and I hope I win too!)

autumn said...

I am so excited for you!!! Congrats and good luck sweetie!!! Can't wait to see you succeed at your new venture!!! XO

Ryan said...

Ugh - I tried leaving a comment but it ate it for some reason...although maybe it went through? Sorry if you're getting it multiple times. I really love the circle with the disc necklace!

Lisa said...

I can't decide what I like best! I keep coming back to take a look :)

Dana said...

Okay somehow I did not know that you had this blog site. I've been on Leila's, but your mom just showed me this one tonight! You are so crafty Heather! I wish I could just have an ounce of your creativity! Your mom was showing me the website and everything was just soooo cute! Your amazing Heather!

My favorite is your two names stamped pendant with the two pendant circles. I think it is so unique and pretty petite.

Lindsey said...

What color of swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls do you have to offer on the sweetheart necklace? I think it is so cute and sweet. Also, how long are your chains, do they come in different lengths?

Lindsey said...

Keep up the great work Heather. You do amazing work and it is so unique and beautiful! I love how everything is personal and petite.

Lisa said...

Perhaps I should have ordered of your fabulous wine charms for GNI on Wednesday! ;)

I loved the special memory necklace you did for M. That was so beautiful.
