September’s SELECT promotion is here! Starting from 2nd September 2010 for LIMITED TIME only!
* I just LOVE September, have you gotten your copy of Vogue yet? That’s the bible for fashionista of the year that you should not missed alright?
As I was having my BOGO promotion, I ran into inquiries like “will I ever get to see designers bundling tutorials up together to run a BOGO promotion?”, “Will I ever get to buy a package with mixture of works from various handmade jewelry artists?"
That sorta put me in silence for awhile.
This kind of thing had never happened in the past though, I mean, yes there is an online community that would allow artists to sell their handmade jewelry instructions together and get a discount, but so far artists get together “themselves” and offer a great deal to their common customer base is rare. So I took action and start contacting my jewelry artists friends, and here’s what I have put up for you for this month. Come on if you like this idea you gotta tell me, leave us a message under this posts so that other artists get to see what you really think. The concept is when artists gets together to offer something like this, they either sell the package as a whole or they sell nothing at all, for example if one of the artist is offering just one tutorial to the SELECT promotion, then buyer’s chance to buy this SELECT item is only ONCE, here’s the scenario:
Corra: 23 tutorialThe possible mix-and-match you could come up with might be: DCH011, DKB007, EBE004, JBD001:
Dianne: 1 tutorial
Erin: 4 tutorials
Julie: 5 tutorials
So here’s the deal:
- Choose most highly priced item from the option list (or any item you would love to received at 50% off from retail price) and Mix-And-Match SELECT listing.
- If you would like to buy 22 other items from me, you gotta buy it directly from me;
- if you would like to buy 3 other tutorials from Erin, you gotta buy directly from her too, either from her Etsy store OR in Guest Artists section of de Cor’s Handmades Instant Download website (because her items now are available at de Cor's Handmades instant download site);
- if you would like to buy 4 other tutorials from Julie, you too have buy directly from her, either from her Etsy store OR in Guest Artists section of de Cor’s Handmades Instant Download website.
Now let’s go to find out more about each one of them~

Hear Erin speak:
“All of my jewelry is meticulously handcrafted by myself with top quality sterling silver and excellent gemstones. My designs are one-of-a-kind, unless a special request is made for a repeat.
I live on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia and use gemstones from all around the world. I love to support my fellow Etsy sellers, so purchase the majority of my gemstones right here on Etsy.
I'm increasingly influenced by New Zealand Maori art and carvings, and flora and fauna. I strive for clean, delicate, symmetrical, wearable jewelry - every piece I craft is a piece I would personally wear.
I named one of my favorite wire motifs the "Koru", which is the New Zealand Maori name given to the new unfurling fern frond. It symbolises new life, growth, strength and peace. Noun is to fold, loop and coil - the basis of my designs.
My other passion is Greyhound rescue and adoption. When I'm not working with wire I'm playing with my dogs. I'm also learning to ride a horse and am interested in all things equine.

Hear Dianne speak:
“I love to draw, and bending wire reminds me of drawing. It's a natural medium for conveying how lines express mood, form and texture. My inspiration comes from nature, from history, from mythology, from abstract art and sometimes from episodes in my own life. I'm attracted to anything that sparks my curiosity and arouses in me the sense of being fully connected with and conscious of the world in which I live. Many of the pieces I make tell a little story, and become jewellery with an inner voice.Julie from JewlieBeads Design:

Hear Julie speak:
“All pieces are created by me in my home studio. My pieces make the perfect gift for that special someone, or to have and treasure for yourself. I'm now adding handmade lampwork beads to my shop. I've been making lampwork beads for 3 years now in my home studio. I use vetrofond, cim, ask, moretti/effetre, and Double Helix soft glasses. All my beads are properly kiln annealed and dremel cleaned. The beads are wound on a 3/32 mandrel unless specified in the listing. I will be listing new pieces often so please stop by again soon.
