John Wind Signature Collection

John Wind Pearl Enhancers

I am currently working on getting the John Wind Signature Collection added to the store.  There are a lot of wonderful pieces, so it’s going to take me some time to get them all listed, so check back often!  I simply LOVE this line, so elegant and vintage.  Some items remind me of jewelry my Grandmothers wore and I always admired.  I’m sure that this collection will bring back fond memories for you, too! 

Besides working on getting this collection listed, I have also been working on making jewelry and feather trees to sell at the National Halloween Convention the end of April.  You know, it’s going to be near where John Wind makes all of his wonderful jewelry!  Along with everything else, I have to find time to work on taxes (yuck)!

For everyone who have been following the adventures of my husband, he has finished his medicine and will be going to the doctor on Wednesday.  Hopefully, the MRI on his head he had last week will be clear.  If it is, then we should be able to put this behind up and he can get back to work.  I will have to work with him until he gets back into shape, but after that, I will be able to get back to my “routine”.

Hope everyone is doing well!

     This has been a long couple of weeks.  Unless things have changed, my husband will be coming home from the hospital Saturday!  It doesn’t end there, though.  He has strict orders from the doctor that he is to do NOTHING but lay on the couch for 4 weeks!  At least he will be home.  Since I won’t’ have to go in to the hospital every day, I am hoping to get caught up on everything.  I am not only trying to get my website updated and make some more trees and jewelry, but I have my husband’s business to manage.  We are blessed by having some great guys work for us and taking care of the daily operation, leaving me with the paper work.  I think I’ll have to teach Chris how to do some of it since he’ll have a little extra time on his hands.  I will also have to drive his FedEx route on days that we can’t find someone else to do it.  Everyone has been very helpful and supportive though all of this and we owe them a huge THANK YOU.  The biggest thank you goes to my sister, Connie, of Celebrate365.  She has taken on the job of taking and editing the photos of all of my new items…. and retaking the ones that I took just to get some items listed.  In addition to all of that, and that’s a lot, she is adding them to my store as she gets them done. 

     We are in the process of adding jewelry by Art by Amy and Christmas ornaments from Christina’s WorldArt by Amy is a combination of bold vintage/retro jewelry mixed with some modern flair.  It’s really fun and addictive once you start putting the the pieces together.  The ornaments and finials that I am focusing on from Christina’s Worldare from their line.  This way, they will fit on the feather trees that I make!  I believe that the jewelry order from John Wind is scheduled to ship on March 15.  I can’t wait!  This collection is also vintage style, but a little more “rich” looking.  The other great thing about this jewelry is that you can easily change charms because they connect with a lobster claw clasp.  So cool!

             I’ll try and keep my updates coming a little more frequently, as long as my husband agrees to stay out of the hospital!
