I loved etsy's front page yesterday!

Speaking of front pages, I am really happy with how my front page looks now with the makeover for the Summer line!

pequitobun Summer '09 Collection is here!

Summer 2009 collection is here!

2 weeks earlier than I had planned, but I couldn't wait to share!! Also, I thought it made sense to launch it earlier so purchases can arrive in time for Mothers' Day if needed. Made during the six weeks I was working on my dissertation, I wanted everything to be different from other pieces I have made, and I love every single one! They are actually two slightly different collections.

The first, GLAM, is more edgy and rock in absolutely versatile, go-with-everything colors- sterling silver or gold-filled with silvery pyrite, cloudy quartz, topaz, gunmetal and lipstick red, with a touch of delicateness.

The second, Exotica, is exactly that, something different, luxurious, bright and exotic. You can wear them to brighten up a boring outfit, or you can just prance around in them naked and pose like a supermodel (yes, i know you do that!!).

As usual, everything is made by me with my two hands, with the finest materials, and most are one of a kind. No factories, no manufacturing, just me, pliers, gemstones and old forgotten vintage things.

Also, I just got a bunch of tiny pequitobun 14K gold-filled tags to add my signature to each necklace or bracelet (see below), so every necklace or bracelet piece ordered from now on will be tagged with the signature on them before they ship!


pequitobun tags are here!

I got the tags I ordered! And they are beautiful!!

Most necklace and bracelet orders on pequitobun will now be tagged with pequitobun's logo (even the older designs, I'll add the tags before they ship!)

pequitobun jewelry tags

I have been thinking for awhile about creating jewelry tags for my jewelry, as a step towards creating pieces that can be recognised as "pequitobun". I put it off because it required a considerable investment in creating the template for the tags and the entire labelling system, but recently, I decided to take the plunge! I hope this will create more value for my customers and make the pieces more collectible. I also think it will just make the brand more professional overall.

Here is how they will look:

It will probably take about a month for the custom tag system to be set up, but I'm hoping that I will be able to add them to all future necklace orders after mid-May or so!
