Hello friends! I'm sorry I haven't been updating my blog lately. I am officially in the midst of the Holiday shopping season. It has been nice to be busy :)

Speaking of shopping, I am having a sale in my Etsy shop. 20% off all ready to ship items, and free shipping on all the made to order items.

I added several pairs of affordable earrings earlier in the week, and there are lots of other great goodies as well.

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. I enjoyed the holiday with my husband and girls. Lots of good food, and plenty of family time. :)

We went to the movies twice this past week to see Catching Fire and Frozen. Both good shows.

I leave you with a drawing by my oldest....

If you follow me on Instagram (amynicolejewelry) or on Facebook, you'll have seen my handstamped ornaments. I will do a blog post on them soon. Happily I've had some interest in them. I've been an ornament making machine! I hope to add new ornaments to choose from each year from now on. :)

All these pieces just listed in my Etsy Shop.  I've been concentrating on making earrings this week with a bracelet and a necklace thrown in for good measure!  I want to get the shop stocked with plenty of earrings before the Holiday shopping season begins.  They make the perfect gifts! 

I'm going to continue concentrating on making earrings.  I'm even planning on giving myself the challenge of coming up with some earrings that are in the $ 25 price range.  I find it hard to limit myself.  ;)  Once I start making I keep adding this and adding that, and before I know it I've used more time and silver than I'd intended!  I want to try to offer some really affordable options that are still beautiful.

Have a great day my friends, I hope you get a chance to check out my new work!  :)

I went on a bit of a mushroom kick recently. I have big plans to make some pieces with some mushroom shaped stones I have too, but not sure I will get around to it. Do you know how that goes? I do it all the time, have plans to make stuff that never gets made. I've actually been thinking of the mushroom pieces with stones off and on for years now! Maybe someday ;)

I also made a couple of new skinny cuffs in sterling. I love these, especially in a stack of 4-6 of them. But just one is nice too. ;) I'd like to add a couple of personalized designs before the Holiday shopping season but I am still mulling around design ideas.

Two new rings in the Celestial collection. Made to order in your size.

All these pieces are listed in my Etsy shop. Speaking of Etsy shop, did I tell you I changed my shop name to AmyNicoleJewelry? Well, I did. I like it better than the AmyNicoles I had to use when I first opened shop because AmyNicole was already taken.

Also, I want to offer a few hand stamped ornament designs.

This one is a prototype in Nickel. Also known as German Silver, Nickel Silver, Alpaca, and other names I can't think of off the top of my head. It has a bit of a southwestern vibe to it, and the hanger is repurposed sari silk.

Well, I think that is all in Amy Nicole news. Sorry I've not been posting here much. Life always gets busy at this time of year :)

I leave you with a photo of my girls dressed up for Halloween:
