Leather Steer Head LongHorn Earrings

Getting Started With Custom Banners

So I promised in my last post to fill you in on my little secret to awesome, easy, and FREE custom banners, headers, profile photos, etc, right?!? So here it is: CANVA !! This site is absolutely AMAZING, and if you haven’t already discovered it, PLEASE go check it out!!! Most of you are probably extremely tech savvy, so this would look like kindergarten play to you, but for me, and some of us out there who are technically challenged, this was a dream come true! They have some ready made templates available, or you can go to the upper right hand corner of their page and click ‘use custom dimensions’ to totally customize for any web page, site, blog, etc!  I found this site at just the right time, as I was re-opening AZTECA DESIGNS BOUTIQUE and needed help freshening my shop look, and giving my over-all web appearance a more professional looking face lift! Leave me a comment and let me know if you’ve tried CANVA,  and if so, how it helped you! Also, feel free to share other helpful web sites on designing your own web sites and pages for FREE! Thanks everyone!!!

I am going to be off-line quite a bit this week as I have family coming from out of town for a visit! However I will be checking e-mail and shipping orders as usual, so no worries there! Please check out our boutique this week, if you haven’t yet…I am running a SPECIAL through April 15, and there is a coupon code on my boutique’s FRONT PAGE which I would LOVE for you to take advantage of! I have also listed a TON more items, because I am taking advantage of a 45 day free trial offer from Zibbet for a premium membership. I will be cancelling it on May 16, at which time my inventory will be reduced to 50 items again. Please take advantage of this opportunity to shop the HUGE selection of chainmaille, leather, copper, and silver artisan crafted jewelry we have for sale! 

Thank you everyone, and I look forward to hearing back from you!

Introducing Our New Chainmaille Line

My big news of the week is our new chainmaille line! Just out of my studio, and now listed in Azteca Designs Boutique is the Byzantine Beaded Cross Set! A stunning set of solid copper crosses, with all handmade jump rings, accented by royal peacock blue freshwater pearls! A sterling silver chain sets off the necklace, and Argentium sterling silver handmade ear wires are featured on the earrings. What a precious and timeless gift for anyone!

In the works, but still residing on my bench, are several other chainmaille designs for earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and sets. This takes a lot of time and love, as I am currently making each jump ring by hand. I have plans to eventually purchase most of my jump rings already made, to lower costs for you, and help with time management on my end, but it will be several weeks before I can place an order.

 I have several simple Byzantine long earrings made in preparation for the Spring show downtown on May 2nd. You can view them on our Facebook page HERE. As always, if you see something you like, but discover that it hasn’t been listed in our boutique, please contact me! 

A sweet little surprise, we were notified this morning that Azteca Designs Boutique was featured in a blog last week! Please take the time to visit this post! We are so appreciative of their generosity in featuring us! Visit post HERE, and jump on over to their Facebook page and give them a ‘LIKE‘!
