Pricing and Buying details are almost all up!

screen-shot-2016-10-27-at-5-39-21-pm“How do we buy?” has been a question that loads of people have been asking, and here is the short answer: On each photo there is a description, price, email contact for enquires, and a unique code number. This is nearly complete thankfully, and we are really getting there at last!

This has been a super slow process for us with our health, but seeing our stock on the web site and all the love that has gone into making all those pieces over the years, we are feeling super proud of ourselves. People are already buying (thank you thank you thank you!!!) but as the photos get loaded from my phone from bed, they don’t go up with details on each photo; I have to wait for another day, another small dose of energy, and get onto the laptop and slowly key in details, prices, codes etc. So please bear with us … we are chipping away and we are almost there.

And even better… although we will still be adding things up until Market Day (November 14th), the bulk of the things are up and ready. So belowย is a quick link to the album of products, please feel free if you don’t want to buy anything, to comment, share and promote our page (only if you like it and/or love us that is…)

Love Jenn & Julieย xxx

Our Studios…

Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 6.03.41 PMFor those of you who haven’t seen our studios, here is Jenn’s in a rare moment of tidiness (plus some of our work spaces and work tables )… There are always a number of projects happening at the same time, and so there is no such thing as spotless but at the same time we need access to all manner of things at any moment in time and so while “organised chaos” may sound like or may even be for some, an oxymoron, …for us it is a workable necessity that there is apparent chaos that we NEED to keep organised. Jenn no longer teaches but continues to make a limited number of pieces of art both for private use and for sale on the virtual Markets that we run every 6-8 weeks on the Facebook Page.

Julie’s Soul Food Studio is exactly that; …food for our souls anyway, and home to many of our creations. Julieย still does some classes both in Silver Clay and in Glass fusing and slumping. Classes are run as needed by private arrangement and each one runs forย 3-4hrs. The rest of the time Julie, like Jenn, works in her own amazing “organised chaos” studio, where her kiln lives which means that often both the girls spend the day creating here. Julie also makes many pieces for sale and for private use, and between us we love and are fed by each other, the world around us, … and our creative space which is filled with endless possibilities.

Setting up our Market

img_6241

The two of us have been making, teaching, creating and selling our stuff for many years, and as both of us have faced some pretty massive health challenges recently we have decided that we need a better way to sell our things. A shop is simply not an option, and the immediacy of something like Etsy where we are expected to produce, post and deliver on the spot, will likely leave both ourselves and our customers frustrated. (we are not closed to this idea so watch this space next year some time). But in the mean time we need something different.

A market every 6-8 weeks would be ideal but as many of our fans live around the world and we no longer have the physical ability to spend all day setting up a market, we have decided to try the idea of an on line market. Over the next few weeks we will be putting up photos and prices on all our stuff for sale, and then early to mid November (we will let you know exact dates by the end of this week) we will have a virtual market for lack of a better work, over a three day period where we will both be processing orders and posting them out. So keep an eye out on our Facebook page (just click on the link), and if you see something that you like, then simply email us (there will be an email address on each photo to contact which ever one of us made it) and we will respond as soon as we can to arrange payment and postage. As simple as that!

Chess Set

Screen Shot 2016-07-10 at 4.47.43 PM

Last Year I made a breakfast bar with a chess set painted on the top and a set of chess pieces out of Polymer Clay. For all kinds of complicated reasons, mostly my failing health, I didn’t quite finish and just need to make the two Queens entirely and the white King still needs his crown. So this has been waiting in the side lines but as part of the catch up I thought that I would put up photos anyway and hopefully that will be a reminder to finish those last two pieces. I am trying to finish as many projects as possible that I was not able to touch last year, for my own piece of mind as much as anything…

New Stuff…

Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 5.29.59 PM

I know, not a very imaginative heading but I am trying to get pics up on here so that we can catch up AND keep doing what we do and there are only so many hours in a day and for both of us that isn’t too many hours that we are allowed to work. We both need to pace ourselves for health reasons and we both are finding it really difficult to learn how to balance rest and work. We LOVE what we do and it is vitally important for our souls and well beings, which in turn is also good for our health…

Balance balance balance… I am yet to find someone who has truly found balance everything in their lives…

(By the way, yes those glass tiles in there have nothing to do with jewellery .. see what happens when I rush! Haha… but I am not going to redo that … and anyway, we do use a lot of glass in our mixed medium works of art however, and we made these glass tiles by the way.. from scratch so we are pretty proud of them… and they will be used in upcoming tiled mosaic projects so watch this space!…

 

Printing Day Success!!!

Today we printed the first 55 packs of colouring in packs, and sold 24 of them by the end of the day just in people we saw!!! I have a busy week ahead but I hope to write up some tutorials on colouring in which hopefully will help all who are asking about them and what to use and so on, but in the mean time, this is what they look like packaged!! (tomorrow I will try and take some pics of them printed on the card stock ๐Ÿ™‚ They look sooooo much nicer than “normal” paper ๐Ÿ™‚
