Happy spring from the snowy wilds of New Hampshire! Happy World Poetry Day to all my fellow writers!
Today I'm launching a project that I've been thinking about for almost two years: Unwritten Stories. Every piece of jewelry now comes with a tiny fragment of a poem or a story. Once or twice a month, I'll gather the most recent fragments into mini chapbooks. I'm publishing them under a Creative Commons license, and if you use any of the fragments in your own creative work, I would love to see what you make!
The first two chapbooks are now available! To celebrate the launch of this project, I have two special offers for the rest of March: jewelry orders of $40 or more will include a free copy of Issue #0, and I will hand-write an original fragment just for you into every copy of Issue #1.
I've also added 20 new pieces of jewelry to the store! I recently acquired a large quantity of broken vintage costume jewelry and I've salvaged some wonderful beads, many of which went into this update. I had a lot of fun working with these beads, and I hope you'll enjoy them too.
And last but certainly not least, because it's that wonderful time of year when I have to send a large amount of money to the IRS... let's have a sale! Use coupon code APRIL15 to take 20% off orders of $95 or more.
(I'd also really, really appreciate it if you could spread the word this announcement and sale. Between taxes and legal expenses in the Divorce That Never Ends, I'm going to be writing some very large checks in the next month, and every little bit of signal boosting helps tremendously. Thank you!)
Until next time,
