Right now, my jewelry can be found at Scarborough renfest, and this summer, I’m completely redoing this website to include online shopping and a better gallery interface.  If you’d like to be added to the email notification list, please use the Contact form to send that request.  I’m planning to have everything up and running in August or September.

Wow! This renfair season is already almost over! We are coming up on the last weekend, so if you haven’t made it out yet or want to get out there one more time, now’s your chance. I’m looking forward to the summer and the upcoming year. Last year had more happening than anticipated, so some plans got back-burnered. But back on track!

I’ve been really enjoying the interactions on my Slightly Twisted page in Facebook and post there frequently. If you want to stay up with the latest happenings, come “Like” us there. Slightly Twisted Studios

If you are not on Facebook at all or infrequently, and would like to be added to my notification list for major website changes (shopping!) or special promotions, just send me a request via the Contact form. (I send email extremely rarely and never share your information.)

I’ve created a Facebook page, if you’d like to keep up with little daily happenings, special announcements, and whatever else I’m up to. I’ll still be doing blog posts when I’ve got longer thoughts to write and more pictures, but come on over here to Slightly Twisted Studios to see what’s happening today. See you there!

This year has really flown by! We’re a little over half-way through the renfair now. The gallery display issues cropped up again, so I swapped out the gallery for something that will do for now. The navigation could be better (that will change), but at least it’s stable and won’t be going down every time the traffic gets a bit too high. Ultimately, I want to have a thumbnail preview grid/slide and larger pictures. However, while getting the alternate gallery working, I did run across the little slideshow widget, which I think is pretty cool.

Also, for anyone looking for particular items, especially Mother’s Pendants, Earcuffs, and Knuckle Rings–for now, just contact me directly. I plan on putting up a dedicated page with pictures/pricing for specific items and styles, but it might not happen while the fair is going on since all that takes a good bit of time.

Good news! Figured out a temporary fix for the Design Gallery page, so it’s back up. This summer, I’ll probably be changing the client on it (I like the front-end, but back-end is a pain). But we’re good for now and the maxed-out traffic and re-directing issues should be fixed. This summer I also plan to add more pictures of my normal stock like rings, bracelets, earrings, etc. But these things take time. A lot of time 🙂 Soooo…this summer. I also plan to add an option to break it into albums or make it searchable, like show just rings, or whatever. Other website summer projects are adding some type of online shopping and pages fleshed out for classes and specific popular custom items like mother’s pendants and earcuffs. In the meantime, just contact me directly with what you’re interested in.

I’m starting my 22nd season at Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, Texas. Come see me at Shoppe #35, “Slightly Twisted”. We just finished the first weekend! (Seven more to go.) I noticed on my website today that this is the second time in a month I’m having traffic volume limit issues with where my design gallery was hosted, so I’ve temporarily taken down that page and will be fixing that issue very soon. So if you’re looking for jewelry pictures, please check back. If you really want a few now, dig back in some of the earliest blog posts and there’s a few. In the meantime, contact me directly if you’re looking for something specific. A NEW DESIGN GALLERY PAGE IS COMING SOON!

It’s been a busier-than anticipated summer, so my fall plans are starting a bit later than planned. I’ve been finishing up some orders (some will become blog posts), reorganizing the studio, and am starting the process of firming up dates and content for teaching some upcoming wire jewelry classes. Contact me if you are interested in classes as I’ll start filling those soon. Once I finish a few commitments, later this fall I’m looking forward to pursuing some new jewelry ideas and getting some sort of online shopping set up.

May 21, 2010

The renfair is nearly over for this season, so I’m starting to plan my next projects. One of those will be offering some WIRE JEWELRY CLASSES this summer or fall. Once the fair is over and I have time to spend on this website again, I’ll make a page with details.

In the meantime, if you are interested, use the Contact form to email me or call. I usually put together a class once I have enough folks interested, rather than posting a date for signups, so I need to hear from you to be added to the list.

Here we go…Scarborough Faire is starting! http://www.srfestival.com/

I’ll be out there in Shop #35 “Slightly Twisted” on weekends through Memorial Weekend. Come see me!

I’ve just added an image gallery over on the design gallery page. Right now it’s the equivalent of picking up my picture book on the counter and flipping through it. When I have more time, I’ll organize it so that it can be grouped by categories, also will be adding more pictures of rings and earrings when I can.

Soon I’ll be adding an About and an FAQ page. Any questions in the meantime, contact me. Also, my blog has officially moved over here. In general, will be doing some website tweaking. Always a work in progress.

A lot of big changes around here. I’m completely reworking the website to have a cleaner look and reorganizing the layout and contents. I think it should be a lot easier to keep updated using the new software.
