This has been a labor of love of mine for such a long time, I’ve many times second-guessed myself and felt like it wasn’t ready to share just yet. But if I keep stalling I just may never do it! I’m still working on the logo, putting together an Instagram for Glitterthorn (to share behind-the-scenes and new designs, as well as offering pieces for purchase), refining my Etsy store, deciding on packaging…etc. etc. But they say to do something that scares you every day, and to jump in feet first before you feel completely sure. I’m not completely sure what I’m doing, but I love making jewelry, and I know I want to share it with the world. Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement!

Glitterthorn Jewelry is Now Available through my Etsy store here!

March Sponsor Spotlight: Elinspired on Etsy

iusb_760x100.11521567_fi02 I am so excited to announce to you my newest sponsor for March: el.inspired!

Emma makes pretty, sparkly bracelets adorned with chunky chains and Swarovski crystal, chic leather tassels, elastic hair tie sets, and tiny leather coin purses.  She writes:

I have been making Jewellery for years along with some sewing here and there but never thought about turning it into a business until a couple of years ago when I stumbled upon Etsy & fell in love!! Being a stay at home Mum I was looking for something that I could do for myself while still being at home with my kids, so I decided to take the plunge and in June 2012 I opened el.inspired. I want my store to be a ‘Boutique Accessories’ Store with a main focus on Jewellery. As well as bracelets I am currently working on necklaces, which I hope to add to my collection soon. I love the creativity my business allows me to have and I am so exited for the future!!

Here are some of my favorite pieces from her shop:sponsorspotlight_elinspired

1. Gold Chain and Clear AB Crystal Bracelet, $18.95  /  2. Silver Chain and Azure Crystal Bracelet, (sold now, but similar here), $17.06   /  3. Gold Chain Emerald Cut Crystal Bracelet, (sold now, but similar here) $27.85 /  4. Lilac Leather Tassel Keyring Keychain, $14.97

Thank you, Emma, for your sponsorship this month!  If you have a chance, visit her shop and browse all her lovely offerings: great for stacking bracelets and arm adornment!  I’m lusting after that emerald cut crystal bracelet like crazy, especially since she has one in my favorite color blue here!

And if any of you are interested in sponsoring Chic Steals, there are still sponsorships open.  If you are a seller of DIY supplies, crafty goods, sewing books, jewelry, clothing, beauty products, or home wares that are chic, affordable, and on-trend, then you would be a perfect fit for my readers!  You can purchase an ad here on my site through Passionfruit’s integrated ad system, or email me if you’d like more information, including current stats.

Thank you!

New Colors for Fur Tails and Puffs Now Available in My Etsy Shop!

Yes, that’s right – I’ve added TWO new colors to the range of faux furs I stock for my tails and puffs in my Etsy store.  (And coming in the New Year…BAGS!!)

So many customers have requested black fur, but I haven’t found a pure black faux fur that is as high-quality as my other furs.  What I could find, however, is a fur that has a midnight black fuzzy base, with longer light brown/blond hairs sprinkled throughout.  It’s very plush and realistic.

Inspired by Prada’s line of brightly-colored fur accessories, I’ve also stocked a Limited-Edition Crimson fur for the holidays!  I only have 1 yard of this, so when it’s gone, it’s gone!  It’s of the same style of fur as my White tails, with long, wispy hairs. It’s very light and airy.

I’m now offering Puffs, Medium-sized Tails, and Full-Sized Tails in my Etsy shop, in all 6 colors including the new Black and Crimson

Please check it out – or send it to your friends if you think they’d be interested!

I’ve also got two more colors of faux fur coming in (though UPS is taking an extremely long time to deliver them to me…grrr…) so stay tuned for BLACK and CRIMSON tails and puffs in the near future!

Thanks so much!
