Welcome Back, PPI Fans!

Hello all!

After a years-long hiatus from writing, I am happy to say the blog for online store, Pretty Poet Ink, has returned!

What was once a semi-defunct blog on Blogger has found new life with a migration to WordPress — and with it comes new adventures, inspirations, merchandise, and logo too!

A Much Needed Update

As you can see, I’ve changed the look once more of the store, and decided to have a more monochromatic feel. Anyhow, there seems to be some exciting endeavors for PPI which may include a foray into the magazine world, as well as a conjunction with masquerade designers for Labor day and the ability to vend at upcoming events! 
In addition to that, I created two pieces in the wee hours of the night last night, one being the last of my necklaces for the “English Royal Family” collection, inspired by monarchs over the centuries of the country I long to visit and the other piece is a more contemporary “stylish” piece. I promise you pictures will follow. 
I also hope to possibly upload a “how-to” video on here and a picture challenge in which I attempt to recreate something that I’ve seen (of course with my own personal spin). 
Take Care!

To Sell or Not to Sell…THAT is the question!

So I made this necklace a while back and it looked drastically different. A friend of mine saw it and wanted to buy it right off the bat. I kept telling her ‘no.’ Not because I didn’t want to give it to her, but because I never thought it was finished. Finally, I looked at it. Long and hard and I realized what exactly I didn’t like. It was too busy and I wanted it simple, even if it did look like something else that I’ve seen before. So I cleaned it up and this is what happened: I liked it so much, I wondered if I wanted to make another one to sell OR if I wanted her to have the only one?

Then there’s this beauty…

 As you saw/read earlier it was re-worked from a previous bracelet. My co-worker loved it and bought it. Now I’m wondering (because the silver pieces may be hard to find) if to re-do it with different accents and colors, same basic style and list it as the “Ever After Collection” inspired by my fave characters from the film Henry (Blue), Danielle (Pink/Violet) and Jacqueline (Green).Hmmm….food for thought!
