$5 Off Coupon!

Snow Ashes (#12 sold)
Today marks a special day-- I've sold my 38th pair of earrings!

I don't have a particularly close relationship with the number 38.  But selling this pair marks the day I've broken even for the first time since starting this hobby, over a year ago!

I've learned a lot about design and construction since starting Urbane Fashionista, and been inspired in different ways. I've invested in tools, beads and materials and tried to create earrings that showcase not only the beauty of the stones and materials used, but that bring out the wearer's beauty as well!

To celebrate, I'd like to offer everyone a discount to use for ordering from my Etsy shop. My sister remains my only customer on Etsy (lol, thanks L!), and I'd love to boost that number of fully satisfied customers.

Please visit my Etsy page at:

Entering the coupon code "HAPPY15THSALE" will give you a $5 discount on your purchase, now through the end of the year!

Trio of the Latest

Early Dusk (when there's a little pink tinge
to the blue sky; for sale on Etsy!)

Olive Cubes II

Jolly Jasper Jubilee 

Custom Order for Dawn

Dawn, a co-worker, saw a few pairs I recently made:

Sprite Treasure (for sale on Etsy!)

Beachcomber II 
And said that she liked both.... with a few minor adjustments.  So I obliged!

She didn't like the wood beads or the shells, so I created the following:

Tiny Sprite Treasure

Rocky Beachcomber
Hopefully they'll meet her style requirements.  ;)

***UPDATE***  Dawn fully approves and will give Tiny Sprite Treasure as a Christmas gift-- Rocky Beachcomber is a Christmas gift for herself.  :)

Blog Word Cloud

I haven't been at home for the past few weeks, since I visited my family in Sweden, Switzerland and Germany and then was at a conference in West Virginia.  So I haven't had a chance to make any earrings. But here's a fun Tagxedo word cloud I made from this blog-- you can see which words I use most often!

I'm eager to get back to the creative process this weekend, so stay tuned for new exciting earrings! ^_^

Peacock Pair!

My good friend, study buddy and former roommate Martha received a pair of earrings from me last year. Unfortunately, one of the beads was defective and splintered (I think they were amethyst) so I told her to send them back so I could fix them.

Originally, she had requested that I make a pair that followed the color scheme in a peacock's feather. The pair I made last year was very simple, with only a drop-shaped mother of pearl bead and the amethyst beads above the drops.  I decided to bling out the drops and add some more length to the pair, since I know Martha is a flashy, fancy dresser.  :)  I just got some new chain and spacers, so I wanted to use some of those as well. 

The building blocks and color reference


Hope she likes them! ^_^
