First of all I want to assure you that I do have some better posts lined up for the next couple of months! It’s been a bit tough trying to get back into all of my work since my daughter was born in September I haven’t gotten back into quilling quite yet, but I will be starting on a new custom order design this week that I will be excited to share with everyone!

Whew, life is busy around here! First of all I am thrilled to announce that we welcomed our second daughter into our family last week! We are treasuring every newborn moment and also trying to adjust to a new normal. My elder daughter is head over heels in love with her new sister which is so lovely to see
I am taking a couple weeks off of having to pack up orders, and taking several weeks off from making custom orders.

So go ahead and get a head start on your holiday shopping this year! Use the code BABY50 during checkout to get your discount. Just remember that you are ordering the exact item in the listing and that it will not be sent out until sometime later next week.
Sorry for no pictures in this post, I am writing it from my iPad instead of my computer. I don’t have much time to sit down at the computer yet these days!
Summer is coming to an end, and it’s time to start embracing autumn! This year I thought it’d be fun to make some jewelry in the colors that pantone has declared to be popular for this fall season.
Here is the color palette from Pantone for fall 2012:
And here is the first part of my fall 2012 collection based on these colors:
Circle earrings in french roast and honey gold: (I love these colors together!)
I have other pieces in my shop that fit these colors and are great for this fall’s fashion line, but these are the new ones that are these specific colors. Click HERE to see all fall fashion designs in my etsy shop.
Looking to make your own? Click HERE for FREE tutorials and HERE for more tutorials in my etsy shop!
This post is called Part I because I have more pieces that I have yet to photograph that are made of these colors. I can’t wait to show them to you!
My most recent tutorial is for many circle designs. It includes seven patterns including my popular retro circles designs. This pattern sells, like my other combo tutorials, for the low price of $4.50.
And there is more! For those who are only interested in a certain pattern and don’t want to buy the combo tutorial, I am also offering “mini” or single tutorials! These tutorials have instructions for one or two designs and are currently available in the following patterns: (and remember, all earring designs can also be made as pendants and vice versa!)
These single tutorials are available for only $2 each!! Of course if you are looking for several designs at once it is a better deal to get the combo tutorials. But if you are just looking for a specific design, then the single tutorials are perfect!
I have more combo and single tutorials in the works, so stay tuned!
It’s time for another celebration! Honey’s Hive on Facebook has reached 1,500 likes!

I’d like to share one of the newer designs I have available in my etsy shop, the tiny rose post earrings. I love making tiny roses and I know that some people like very small earrings. When I make the dangle ones I need to use two tiny roses back to back to make a little bead to dangle from the earring. But with the post earrings I only need to use one which gives another very affordable option.
Here are the colors that I have made so far, click on the photo to see the ones still available in my etsy shop:
Don’t see the color you want? I can make these earrings in just about any color! All you have to do is send me a convo on etsy for a custom request. Or simply purchase one of the pairs that is instock and leave me a note with your order saying what color you would like.
Don’t forget, the Christmas in July sale is on through the rest of the month. Use code CIJ30 during checkout to receive 30% off your whole order!
It’s that time of year again for CIJ – the Christmas in July SALE! Time to shop early for some great holiday gift deals! I know I’ll be browsing around etsy to find some new favorites and awesome deals.
The deal for the month for Honey’s Hive is to save a whopping 30% on your order! Simply use code CIJ30 during checkout to receive your discount. This code is valid on everything in the store except for gift certificates. You can even use the code on the CLEARANCE items which are already at least 50% off. Wow!!
Even save on Tutorials!
I hope to highlight a few more shops that I find that are having great deals on etsy. I really love shopping on Etsy and want to start sharing some of the awesome shops I’ve bought from. So keep an eye out for that! In the meantime, happy shopping!
Although I haven’t been posting much lately, I’ve been doing a lot of creating over the past few weeks! I have finally started listing some of my new pieces in my etsy shop. One of my favorite styles to make now is paisley designs. I’ve been making some pendants, some earrings, and some sets. There is SO much you can do with the paisley design, I just can’t stop thinking of ideas! Of course it’s impossible to find the time to create all of my ideas, but I have made a few!
Here is my most recent pair of paisley earrings:
These were inspired by an Indian sari I saw on TV when I was at my mother-in-law’s house. Paisley inside of paisley facing the other direction. It is simple, but stunning!
Here is one of my recent paisley pendants:
I love how the aqua and the black go together. Designs like this are a lot more time consuming because of all the little pieces, but the end result is beautiful and quite sturdy!
I have some more paisley designs in the works, and many other pieces that are in the process of being listed as well. A lot of work goes into my jewelry before I list it on my etsy shop! First I have to make it and let it dry. Then it goes through several layers of sealant/top coat which is a process that can take days as it needs to dry between each coat. Next it’s time to put on the findings and take photos. I usually do at least a few pairs/pieces at a time to make it more efficient. Then comes the photo editing which can take quite a while and finally listing in the shop. When I make a new piece I am often so excited to see the end product in my shop, but it can sometimes be up to a month before it gets there! Right now I have about 20-30 different pairs/pieces that are in different stages of getting ready for my shop. Can’t wait to get them all posted, and to start on some new designs as well!
I’m happy to have another paper quilling tutorial available! This one is for five earring designs. Of course, these designs can also be used as pendants or as designs on gift cards or anything else if you wish. Here are the designs included in this new tutorial:
I have many more plans for tutorials coming up. It takes a lot of time to develop them, but it is fun as well! Next up I’ll have another free tutorial, hopefully available in the next couple of weeks!
This tutorial, like my others so far, is available in my etsy shop. It is a .pdf file with LOTS of pictures and very detailed instructions! Even if you’ve never done paper quilling before you’ll be able to follow the directions to make these. Click here for more details about the tutorial.
