I’ve Decided to Sell My Jewelry-making & Bead Stash!

Its true, I’m selling off a lot of my jewelry-making and bead stash.  I have a problem….I am so busy with school and family, I have no time for jewelry-making, yet I kept buying.  I’ve made a few pieces, but not enough to make it worth keeping all these beads!

Don’t judge, I know how much I have (yikes!).  I’m not looking to profit off my stash, just to recoup some of my costs.  You pay shipping costs and an extra 20 cents to offset the billing fees of PayPal, the price has been totaled for each piece.  If items are missing a cost, its because I need to count the items or find out exactly the type of bead before I want to set a price.

I will be posting my items on my blog on a separate page, as well as on my Facebook page in a photo album and on a few Facebook Stash Buster groups.  First person who sends me their email address via my email, message on Facebook, or commenting on the photo, will be sent an invoice via PayPal for the price of the item and shipping costs.  All shipping costs are estimated because I never have any luck with the USPS website.  But I’ve shipped some beads before and can make a good estimate!

I also have a lot of jewelry items in my Christina Designs Art Etsy store and Christina Designs Art Craftstar shop for you to see!  Please stop by and check everything out 🙂  Oh, and I have a coupon right now for both stores: Etsy~ spend $5 or more for free shipping off your order and use coupon code 2014January until Jan 31.  Craftstar~ for free shipping off any item in my store, use coupon code NEWYEAR2013.  I’m going to continue with my store, it just won’t be very diversified.  Stick to what I’m good at, I hear that’s a plus with online stores anyway!

Thanks!  I look forward to someone receiving these beautiful beads and fun supplies!!

Original Acrylic Paintings for Sale (set of 4)

Gesso Experiments by ChristinaDesignsArt.wordpress.com

My first experiment with gesso and acrylic paints – see the texture?

Back in February 2013, I was really just in one of those moods, the creative kind, you know?  Its been hard lately to find the time to really get creative for a full 8 hours, sometimes I only have time to “let loose” for a few hours during the day when I can sneak in a little refashioning or jewelry-making.  So back then I was under some stress getting ready for my sister to have her babies, and the baby shower was shockingly close, I just needed to get creative!  So I did.

I did some experimenting with gesso and different textures and swirling colors.  I picked 3 colors that I thought were soothing and relaxing and just mixed and blobbed them around.  I made the larger 8″x10″ paintings first.  Then as I was laying them out, I decided they really needed to be balanced with other sizes.  So I grabbed the colors again and started mixing the paints, trying something new!  This was a great exercise in letting go and trying something less structured than what I usually paint.

Christina Designs Art Beaded Mixed Media Original Artwork Set $40

Christina Designs Art, Original Mixed Media Artwork, Set $40

I am very pleased with the results and the silver beads add just enough bling to the paintings.  They have also been sealed in a gloss which I really love the look of!

PS. Sorry about the photo quality, photographing my paintings is something I still haven’t become too competent at!  But I am trying 🙂  Also, colors may vary because of computer monitor differences, but I have tried to accurately display my colors choices and describe them to you.

These paintings are for sale for $40 as an entire set, plus shipping costs.  If you are interested in purchasing or requesting custom artwork, please email me here: christina[dot]pertz[at]gmail[dot]com
