One Day to go for 10/10/10!

There's only one item left to be revealed in my 10 items over 10 days with a shop wide 10% off celebratory launch event over at my Etsy shop (coupon code WEBB10).  The event is to celebrate the launch of my new website at www.whisperedreams.com, so if you haven't checked it out yet, please do!

So here's a quick summary of the pieces I've posted since my last blog entry.  All the prices I list are in Canadian dollars and before the 10% discount.

The first are a pair of candy cane coil earrings which can be worn seasonally or year round as a subtle way of showing off your holiday spirit ($20):

The next is the honey-golden and earthy seed bead and caramel glass pearl sweetheart bracelet with a heart-shaped clasp ($20):

The following day I posted a sleek and simple sea glass design in non-tarnish silver-plated copper wire ($20):

Day 7's piece was a flirty and feminine sweetheart beaded pearl bracelet in pink seed beads and white glass pearls with a heart-shaped clasp ($20):

I posted a lovely gold seed bead and white glass pearl necklace with a filigree clasp on Day 8 ($39):

And today I posted a matching sweetheart bracelet in gold seed beads and white glass pearls with a heart-shaped clasp ($20):

So please check in at my Etsy shop tomorrow for the 10th and final item of this celebration event, and if you want your orders to arrive in time for Christmas, remember to order soon!

(I don't know about you, but I'm feeling the holiday spirit.  I got a cute little snowman decoration at a local craft fair, and he offered to model my candy cane coil earrings for you!)

(I think he looks rather good in them!)

I'd also like to remind everyone that Thursday, December 1st, I will be at the Coast Collective for my shift at their annual Gifts and Wishes show and sale.  The sale started November 23 and runs until December 23 and showcases a lot of beautiful art by local Vancouver Island artists.

I'll be there (probably shopping, haha) so you should stop by to say hello and to ask any questions you might have about my jewellery or my process or anything else that may interest you.

Gifts and Wishes 2016 and new pieces in Etsy

Gifts and Wishes 2016 has begun at the Coast Collective's beautiful new purpose-built location on Wale Rd!  The show runs from November 23 to December 23 during the Coast Collective's regular hours (Wed-Sun, 11-5) and features work by many Vancouver Island artists.

I will be there on December 1 from 11-5 if you want to stop by and talk to me about my art.

The Coast Collective is also running a promotion on their Facebook, so be sure to check that out before heading over.  Sounds like you could win a free art print!

Speaking of promotions, my 10 items over 10 days with a shop wide 10% off (coupon code WEBB10) is in full swing at my Etsy shop!

The pieces for days 2 and 3 can be worn as a set.  It's a harlequin style beaded glass pearl necklace and bracelet with heart clasps, making it a great gift to show your loved ones some warm fuzzies!

The necklace is $39 (-10% with WEBB10) and the bracelet is #20 (-10% with WEBB10), and if you buy more than one piece at a time, you'll save on shipping. 

Be sure to place your orders soon if you want them to arrive in time for Christmas!

It's finally here!

I am absolutely thrilled to finally be able to announce the launch of my new website at www.whisperedreams.com!  I've worked really hard on it, and I hope you will find it just as beautiful a showcase of my work as I do.


To celebrate the launch of my new website, and to help you out with your Christmas shopping season, I'm doing a celebration event in my Etsy shop!  I'll be posting 10 items over the next 10 days, and the whole store is 10% off!  To take advantage of this celebration event, simply enter the coupon code WEBB10 on your selected items and receive 10% off of your purchase.  If you want your items to arrive in time for Christmas, please buy them soon.

The first item for my 10 day event is this lovely sea glass pendant!  It's $25 (but you can get it for 10% off with WEBB10!) and features tarnish-resistant brass wire over white Vancouver Island sea glass and a cute sea shell charm:

My shop also has a few other pieces available, also for 10% off, of course.

A seed bead and glass pearl necklace for an original price $39:

A seed bead and glass pearl bracelet for and original price of $20

Some beautiful donut wrap earrings featuring tarnish-resistant silver-plated copper wire, Swarovski crystal bicones, freshwater pearls, and shell donuts for an original price of $39

A lovely deep green sea glass pendant wrapped in tarnish-resistant silver-plated copper wire for an original price of $20

And a warm and earthy necklace in rich brown seed beads and caramel glass pearls for an original price of $39

As I said earlier, these are all 10% off with the coupon code WEBB10, and I will be posting 9 more items over the next 9 days, (for a total of 10 over 10) so check back frequently for new pieces!

I'll try to keep you posted here, but the first place to check will be the Etsy shop.  You can also follow me as whisperedreams on instagram or facebook.  The links are all at my new website of www.whisperedreams.com along with many more pictures of my work, info about events and venues, a new artist's bio, FAQ, and much more, so please check it out.

As a result, this blog will soon start behaving less as an informational hub (my website will be the core of that) and more as a place where I post progress and design thoughts, as well as info about events.  So you can look forward to more informal insights into my process.

I hope you're all as excited about this as I am!

Small Treasures 2016

Hello Everyone!  I'm excited to tell you that one of my necklaces was accepted into the Small Treasures show at the Coast Collective.  The opening reception is tonight, November 4th, from 7-9pm, and I will be in attendance.  If you cannot make it tonight though, the show runs until November 20th.

The piece I have in the show is my lovely sea glass pendant on a braided beaded chain:

As stated in a previous post, this piece features a silver-plated copper wire wrapped piece of Vancouver Island sea glass with a large starfish charm hanging on a braided, four-strand chain of seed beads and freshwater pearls.

It closes with a lobster claw clasp paired with an extender chain to make the length adjustable to suit various necklines.  I'll be selling it at the show for $99.

Small treasures is, in the words of the Coast Collective, a "Gallery exhibition of smaller works of fine art perfect for gifting."  The opening reception is tonight from 7-9pm at the Coast Collective's Wale Road location.

The Small Treasures show runs from November 2 until November 20th during the Coast Collective's normal operating hours.  While I only have the one piece in the show, I have recently restocked my gift shop inventory at the same location, so you can look for me there as well.

I hope you can make it out and enjoy all of the beautiful artwork on display!
