THIS SALE IS DONE. THANK YOU ALL!

All prices go back up to the regular amount the instant it's done.

See shipping notes at the end of this post.



WINTERFAIR SPECIAL: Many of you know that I make planet bead pendants, and that Lois McMaster Bujold has said, "Hey, those look like the planet pendants from my book!" Well, it's winter, and I've got a nice little boxful of these looking for people to love them, so it's time for a Winterfair special. Three planet beads, my choice of stone and my choice of wire (which will be either sterling silver or gold filled), for eighteen dollars. Offer good while supplies last. Some are SOLD, but there are plenty left. Yay! Winterfair gifts! (And in fact they are selling so well that I am going to go into my stash of exceptionally fine stone rounds and make enough more to keep going, because people obviously have the proper Winterfair spirit!) ALL DONE!


Copies of Glass Bead Games, the anthology:

There are still copies of Glass Bead Games available; they are $25 plus shipping. This is the cool anthology of stories and poems and essays sparked by Lioness shiny things. Contains this year's Hugo award-winning short story "Tideline" by Elizabeth Bear, plus two other Bear stories, three Sarah Monette stories, some Jane Yolen poetry, an introduction by Lois McMaster Bujold, and more. Also contains photographs of many of the necklaces from which these pieces took some inspiration. Limited edition of 300 numbered copies, and when they're gone, they're gone... and they're about half gone.



Gifts that don't need wrapping: Year Six of Beads of the Month is now on sale. Purchase one month or a discounted package of several months; three sizes of package to choose from, and twelve months of themed goodness. You can purchase one month, or any number of months, at prices ranging from $12.50 plus shipping for the Little Bitty Magpie package up to $50 plus shipping for the Mother Of All Magpies. (More information and some sneak previews are being posted here as I get the photos done.)

We also have gift certificates available.


Newest of the new:

... "Cat in Glory" hairstick: bead of apparently plastic unless cats have invented some new substance and I wouldn't put it past them, sterling silver, and a seven inch wood hairstick. $45 SOLD

... "Beneath the Planet of the Blueberry People" earrings: some of that stuff they were selling as "blueberry quartz" which is extremely obviously glass, sterling silver, and little discs of opalite glass (which for a while they were selling as "opalized quartz," so there you go). $19 SOLD

"Dancing Through Her Days" earrings: nifty bicolor glass beads, plus gold filled beads and wire. $30

"Glory Bird At My Window" earrings: enameled peacock feather beads, lampwork glass, gold filled beads and wire. $50. Absolutely stunning, and quite light for their size, as the enameled beads are hollow.

"Swingin' Atomic Retro Holiday Blues" pendant: aquamarine, lampwork and other glass, Swarovski crystal, sterling silver. $70 $50

... "There and Back Again" pendant: a tektite encased in sterling silver wires. This is an especially cool tektite, because you can see the pitting it acquired on its trip through the atmosphere, and because it's recognizably a glob of what was once molten glass, splashed up when a meteorite or meteor hit the Earth. I have been saving this one for a long time. It's kind of heavy, and undeniably cool. $85 SOLD

..."Darwin and the Coelacanth* Boys" earrings: ocean jasper, glass, gold filled wire. $38 SOLD

... "Dreams the Color of Candy" earrings: glass, sterling silver, aquamarine (but no Swarovski crystal - that tag is in error). $45 $38 because I goofed on that tag. Buy it now and save me? SOLD

"Elegant Elf" earrings: glass, Swarovski crystal, sterling silver. $30

... "The Far Shore of Elfland" earrings: glass and sterling silver. $35 $26 $17 SOLD

"First-Person World" earrings: azurite/malachite beads on gold filled wire. Heavy and splendid mineral specimens, these. $42 $30 $22, and that is an excellent deal, because these beads were very expensive.

... "Sadie in the Berry Patch, Smiling" earrings: color-treated pearls encased in resin and faceted, sterling silver. Rather experimental, as I want to know if this design gets caught in the hair or not, so I will want feedback from whoever gets it, OK? $25 $15 SOLD

"The Shrine of St. Frida" earrings: old brass milagros, glass, and gold filled wire. $40 $30 $25

"The Slow Sweetness of Grace" earrings: prehnite and gold filled wire. This prehnite is actually a delicate milky clouded green, far too beautiful for me to capture in a photograph. Be aware that these earrings are heavy. $45 $32 $28

Components: ALL GONE

These are things you can use to make your own jewelry with. Every now and then I fiddle with something that wants a different style than mine, so I thought I'd make some of them available to other crafty people.

... aquamarine centerpiece bead: this has a sterling silver wire with loops at each end. It would be fine for attaching ribbons to both ends and tying them as the back of your neck for a simple necklace, or you could attach beading thread or other fibers and make something as elaborate as you liked. $8 SOLD

... another aquamarine centerpiece bead: much like the above. Do what thou wilt, and make something pretty! SOLD

... glass leaf with stars: this is actually cobalt blue, not aqua-to-light-sapphire as my camera makes it look. The stars are white. It's really cool, but I can't use it in the style of thing I am working on now. Give it a good home? $5, which is about what I paid for it some years ago. SOLD






Shipping starts at $6.50 in the US and Canada; it's more elsewhere, and it goes up if things get heavy, baby. Also, insurance or other special shipping is available, so please ask, and Daniel will be glad to get you a quote.

Timing: We'll be shipping paid items as fast as we can on Monday and Tuesday; since we use priority mail click-n-ship domestically whenever possible, there's a reasonably good chance that things shipped Monday and Tuesday will reach you in the nick of time, if it's St. Nick's nick o' time you're thinking of. We can't guarantee, but we'll do our best. For our international customers, it's probably already too late to hope for that, unless we try global priority mail, which is pricey, but we'll do it if you would like, and see how it goes. If you have a question about shipping, ask Daniel at stitchandlioness@gmail.com.

As always, the only way to actually buy something is to send me email at gimme@lioness.net. Feel free to comment here without being in danger of accidentally putting dibs on something. Thanks!

Where do you get the awesome rubber stuff that you use in your memory wire bracelets? I love it!

I think I bought a whole package of it in a retail bead store in Charleston, South Carolina.

Ooooh... so pretty! What I'd give to be a fly on the wall and watch you work your magic...

You are welcome to make an appointment sometime to do just that.

This is one of the few times I am wishing I had longer hair (my hair is kept in a buzz cut, as I do not like how long hair either looks or feels on me), as I am positively drooling over the "Depths" hair stick! I am wanting so bad! Hmm...though it would work quite well with some of my outfits, just not as a hair stick.... (Unfortunately there's no way I could pay for it in one shot--I'd have to do it over two pay days, and I doubt that's acceptable!)

(Deleted comment)
posted a magpie telegraph for you. Everything looks so NICE. I have to be good though...

The hairsticks are gorgeous.

I mean, everything's gorgeous, but the hairsticks especially.

May I please give pendant Froggy #1 a home with a niece of mine? (And is there any chance of shipment by Christmas? Either to me or to the intended recipient?)

Send an email to gimme@lioness.net, and if you're the first email, Froggy #1 can be yours. I do believe Daniel is scheduled to be done with packing all outstanding orders by the end of tomorrow, so if you PayPal when he sends your invoice, we should be able to mail it out by the end of the week. If the recipient's in the US, that ought to work out just fine, then. (If not, we can talk shipping options.)

Heya... Daniel sent me an invoice for my hair toy but I figured wait to send money until you'd finished forensically digging and extricating balances and balancing against shipping and shipping ships and so on.

;-)

Most sensible. I think the forensic accounts team will be finished tomorrow, actually.

How does placing an item on hold work? Do you agree to set something aside for someone who wants the option to buy it but isn't sure yet, or needs more time to be able to pay for it?

For the earrings marked "pending discussion of miraculous transformations" I would guess that someone might want the cat and fish themes combined, and I remember the comments about a personal interview with the chicken for someone who wanted to look at a pendant in the last sale, but, special requests notwithstanding, are there any conditions to know about?

Edited at 2008-12-10 08:14 pm (UTC)

The two necklace-crowns are on hold because someone is getting a replacement piece for one that got eaten by either a postal service or Customs or some nefarious lurker along the way; I promised the person that I would not sell the ones on hold until they make their final decision, which I believe they are pretty close to doing. It's a special case.

The two earring pairs are going to be combined into a thing, yep, and they're waiting on me to get a quote back to that person.

The chicken interview did indeed take place, and satisfactorily so, I believe, from the points of view of chicken and customer both.

What I do with "on hold" is generally if somebody needs time to figure out if they can pay for something, and if that figuring out is going to take less than 48 hours, I am pretty easy about putting things on hold. Likewise if they have to make sure that Aunt Flossie can wear gold, or that the Mother Superior has pierced ears, or something like that. I won't put four necklaces on hold for the same person who is only getting one, though, because it wouldn't be fair. (Well, I'd do it for two hours, but other than that, it wouldn't be fair to everybody else.)

I will sometimes make payment arrangements with people who need to pay for things over time, but that's not an "on hold" thing, just a "payment in installments" thing. When I have the leeway to do it, I am happy to do so.

I *love* "All that falls shall rise again" but I don't have enough hair to be worth buying hair thingies.

Just when I thought my pocketbook and I were relatively safe this time, you put up "What They Say About Her Now." Evil, wonderful Lioness, you are. *pines and ponders*

Oh I so agree on that one! My budget just can't handle that at the moment.

Just for anyone's information, the Maddy's Hair Toy (a cascade of pearls in champagne and sherry colors) I bought does hold well on my short hair, but looks really silly. (My hair's just a little longer than the icon picture now.) Not a problem for me - I'll just wait until the hair is a bit longer - but it might be good information for others. I think it will look fine once the hair is as long or nearly as long as the hair toy, chin length or so.
Of course, for a differently styled hair toy or a person with a very different style, this may not apply at all! Just my own experience.

Have you tried putting the hair toy fairly high, up behind the ear? I like the look of the cascade happening behind-and-under-the-ear, is why I mention it.

You know, one of those centerpiece beads would be lovely in a kind of necklace I like to wear (because it's so easy to put on and forget): one bead like that suspended between two lengths of silver chain, just long enough to hang in the hollow of one's throat. Looks very nice and understated in an open shirt collar.

Just sayin', ya know. For next time. If you find the spirit moves you. *g*

Ah, but how long a necklace? That's the tricky part.

I have, strangely enough, been contemplating such things.

You are so hearing from me again once I get paid on Monday. :D If the two earring pairs I want are still available then.

Do you think that things will manage to arrive before Christmas? If so, I might actually want a second Winterfair Special.

Things in the US that are paid quickly (i.e. via PayPal) have a very good chance of making it. I'm going to end the sale on Sunday night, and we'll be shipping like mad on Monday and Tuesday. Whenever possible, we use priority mail click-n-ship as our basic shipping choice, which is pretty speedy and gives you tracking numbers to watch the progress.

International mail is unlikely to reach people by Christmas, starting next week, unless a person chooses global priority mail, but that's way pricey.

These are lovely, but you really need pictures of someone wearing the items. It's hard to tell size or even how some of them are meant to be worn. Just my $.02.

True thing. I need some necklace-crown photographs with models. I should ask and get people to send me photos of themselves with their shinies, and set up some photo shoots as well. (I need to ask Heather Corinna, who did some lovely people-and-their-shinies portraits a while back....)

If you're still offering the 3 planet beads for $18, I would love to buy a set. Let me know if they're still available and how I should pay you.

Send an email to gimme@lioness.net, and we'll get an invoice out to you. Let us know where we'll be shipping. Thanks!

Thanks! Please go put a note in the Magpie Telegraph Alert System post, so I can put you into the drawing?

Can I have "One Princess, with Poison?"

As always, the only way to actually buy something is to send me email at gimme@lioness.net. Feel free to comment here without being in danger of accidentally putting dibs on something. Thanks!

The earrings "Where Bacchus Sleeps" are calling to me. Just tell me how I go about paying you for them (if no one else has dibs yet). I have paypal. Or can do check or credit card.

The Salmon of Wisdom's Last Will and Testament--what a great name--not my colors at all though and even though Finn McCool and I are "like this" (crosses fingers to demonstrate. It's not meant to be.

As always, the only way to actually buy something is to send me email at gimme@lioness.net.

You'll get a reply from me, asking whether you want an invoice right away or on Monday when Daniel comes in....

I am curious about All That Falls Shall Rise Again.

How long are the tines on that hair fork?

How much wire is there on the back of it? Your other hairsticks are lovely to look at, but all that wire would snag my hair something fierce.

You've been mentioned on longhair so a few more of us may wander over.

I will go measure them. And I'll take a photo of the back, so you can see the wire.

I do try to be as careful as I can about winding all the wire in smoothly so there's nothing sticking out and nothing snags the hair, but I know that some hair just loves to grab things, so it very much depends on the individual and their hair's proclivities. (I used to have elbow-length hair myself.)

I just made another hair stick today, and have more in mind, so there will be more to see soon.

Somebody needs to buy "Carnivorous Roses" before I manage to forget the fact that chokers make me go ACK ACK ACK LOOK WORLD THEY STRANGLE ME. I'll just be over here drooling on my laptop.

That one has dangerous sharp Swarovskis, too. It will only be invoiced with a warning. Heh.

Sometimes I have to do something wicked, is what it is, I guess.

wah. I want the soberly joyful bears. Dratted teeth.

MKK

I see you know the Aurora.

(I'm in an easily touched mood today. Blurry photos discreetly displayed on the wall in the foreground of a TV show made me cry. That Purple-Green Light Again made me cry with homesickness.)

I do! I am glad you know it too, and you probably know it much more than I do, even.

my mama is going to be one happy camper. "come the harvest" will remind her of Little House on the Prairie -- and then i will get to share them the next time i visit -- all good! :)
