good news/bad news

So how about the good news first???

There are 2 awesome {Starfish} giveaways going on right now and I really want you to win!  So in case you haven't entered them yet, here are the links:



Each of these girls have seriously amazing blogs and I am thrilled that they are both hosting giveaways this week.  I am giving the winner of each giveaway any necklace of their choice from my shop.  Yippee!!

Okay, now for the bad news...I am having a price increase effective next Monday 2/21.  This totally bums me out for two reasons:

I try to keep my prices as reasonable as I possibly can, but the cost of silver went up in January and I have been eating that additional cost ever since because I seriously dread having to charge you more.  The truth is, I would make you each a necklace for free if I could do it without going broke.  That is a huge part of the reason I do all these giveaways.  It makes me happy to know that my jewelry makes you happy and that it represents keeping those you love close to your heart. 

The second reason is that part of why I started {Starfish} in the first place was because I really wanted a mommy necklace for myself and they all seemed so expensive and if they weren't expensive, they looked cheap.  And, although I definitely have some necklaces in what I call the 'couture' price range, my designs start at $22.  I want every mom to be able to have a mommy necklace and to be able to layer them and switch them out and not have to save and wait for a monumental event to be able to purchase one.

So, all that being said, I wanted to give you a few days notice about the price increase.  If there is something you have been wanting from the shop, snag it up before the price increases on Monday. 

Now, back to good news, since I would like to end on a positive note: both of the giveaways mentioned above have discount codes so you can save even more cash.  See?  I told you, I really would do this for free if I could.

That's all I know for today...

I hope you all have a beautiful Thursday!

  2. Agreed. I have had my eye on the Coco necklace for so long, and I probable would have freaked out if I had come back to look at it and seen a random price increase.

    It's really amazing of you to let your customers/followers know of the price hike.

  5. No worries, babe. You gotta do what you gotta do. I understand. If I could hand out my accessories for FREE or give away FREE signed copies of my book, I would do it all day long every day of the week. But's it's just not practical. Fabric costs. Printing costs. And with things like gold, silver, gemstones, etc., those will always vary. I still love your designs. You are a talent! And I love your blog too. I even got you in my faves. ;)
