Custom Order Viking Knit Bracelets

As you probably can figure out, the holiday season is busiest for Custom-Made viking knit bracelets.  I know the pics aren't that great.  My camera died and my tablet didn't do a very good, but here are two custom-ordered viking knit bracelets.

These duet bracelets are made with grape and kelly green 24 gauge copper enameled wire.  Threaded with memory wire and using a padlock looking clasp that I found at Joann's Fabric Store.    All ready to gift, they are set in white gift boxes for the buyers.

This is a set of 2 bracelets, each having 1/2 of a Best Friends heart charm.




This is a bracelet with color coordinated beads, antique silver cone end caps and a simple heart charm.


Hope you like!  Feel free to comment or share this post.  I appreciate it so much!

How To Make Candles

Learn to make candles

Wow, I love...love...love this course.  I wish that I had found it a few weeks ago, because then EVERYONE I know would be getting candles for Christmas!  LOL

I am just getting started, but the ease of instructions...the variety of styles...I had to share it with my friends today.  I grabbed the free candle making video and from there, I was HOOKED.

Click the picture, grab the free video and see what you think.  Would love to hear back from you.  What candles you made....how you liked the course, etc.  Send me pics too!  =)

What Do You Want To Know About Viking Knit?

Hello my friends,

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I have noticed over some time, that I receive world-wide visitors viewing my posts about the various steps of making Viking Knit.  I don't seem to get a ton of feedback here on the blog, so under the pictures are a few questions I'd like to ask your help with.

I also noticed that on the reviews for my Kindle book which can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KBZQRTM one reviewer said that it was a good book for beginners, while another had said it was not. 

What I would like to know from you, my readers is:
  • What can I show you that I have not already?
  • What would you like me to share with you?
  • What questions do you have about Viking Knit?
  • Are the pictures clear?
  • Do you find the instructions on this blog easy or difficult?
I would LOVE to have your feedback on this because I want the people who visit my blog and read my book to get the most value from what I offer.  I want to be sure that what I share with you is HELPFUL.

Thank you!  I love you guys and appreciate every one of you.

Keep it crafty my friends!

More Changes

Hello Friends!


Well, if you've been following my posts, you probably know that I have been working with silicone bands and creating loom bracelets, as well as continuing my work with Viking Knit.  You may also know that I was offering my bracelets on Fiverr.  Now, my bracelets have gotten a LOT of views, but not so many sales.

I started to think that maybe I should cut out the middle man and just offer them for sale here on my blog. Obviously the people viewing my blog have an interest in Viking Knit and other bracelets, not tons of other things.  Granted, most people come here to learn techniques and tricks, which is amazing.  And I am grateful for every single one of you!!!  <3

But, for those who may also want to own or gift a bracelet, why send you to some other site that you may or may not want to deal with? So, I am re-vamping this site a bit.  I am adding a page where I can showcase my pieces and let YOU pick and choose what you like.  Maybe you like a certain bracelet, but want it in a different color? Or you like one just as it is, except you want it on memory wire instead of using clasp closures.

This is my site and you are my viewers and friends.  So, I am going to customize it so that we are BOTH satisfied and no middle man needed!  Well, exception would be Paypal, because for now, (and for past 10 years) they are my payment processor of choice.  I've never had a problem with Paypal, as a buyer or seller and purchases are protected.  I trust them so I will use them here.

Beyond bracelets, I can and will make other items, if you let me know you want them. I already have Viking Knit and Angel earrings available.  I have made a few of my pieces into keychains for myself and friends.  I can add charms to bracelets or change up styles.  All you need to do is let me know what you want and I will work with you directly, to make it happen.

Thank you for being here.  Please feel free to poke around my site.  Ask questions, comment on posts and definitely, would love for you to hit the "Share" button as much as you can.

Keep It Crafty!
