The end of August is quickly upon us. It's been a beautiful busy month for me.
I'm already thinking ahead to holiday orders. So I just wanted to take a moment to remind you that orders for the holiday season will need to be placed prior to Oct. 30th. If I get requests after that I cannot guarantee that they will be done by Christmas although I will work very hard to make sure they are.
As a gentle reminder, all orders are now required to be paid in full before I start working on the order. I work on a first come first served basis.
Thank you for your continued business and all your wonderful comments. You all keep me going and challenge me to see what I can do!
Wow, I cannot believe August is here already and almost to the half way point of the month! I know some are getting ready to get their kids back to school, some of you might even be starting classes yourself. My boys are back in school (I homechool) as we started three weeks ago and all is going well.
It's been a busy summer for me. The month of July flew by with orders being fulfilled and new opportunities for me. In July I became a new Artist at The Indian Craft Shop in Washington D.C., you are now able to purchase my beadwork there. Also later in the month I became an Artist at The Store at APK in Juneau, AK. Wonderful opportunities and another outlet for you to purchase.
I have two orders that I'll be working on for some customers and then I'll be working on some moccasins for The Indian Craft Shop.
If your thinking of Christmas Gifts, it's better to get those orders in early. I do get busy around the holidays and would love to be able to get your gifts done ahead so that you are able to put them under the tree.
Please do not forget to check out my Facebook or Instagram to see what I've been working on. I just finished a mini purse, my first and I was very happy how it turned out. My birth mom made one for me twenty years ago and I used that one as the example to the one I made.
Well I'm off to start on my orders! Wishing you all a great rest of your weekend!
Rikki Navarrette is the winner of my 4th of July giveaway! Congratulation and thank you to all who participated!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
So I've been working on some new things, as well as a moccasin order. I'm in the beginning stages of my new online store! If you click on the tab "Alaska Beadwork Store" you will see 10 items for sale. You can add to your cart and checkout from my site. You can still use my Etsy store as well!
I have many ideas rolling around in my head for new projects. Once I'm all caught be on the look out for those new projects!
I've been asked about a catalog, so I've been pondering that idea! This week I'll look more into it. So stay tuned.
Please continue to share, like, comment and follow me! I appreciate your feedback. You can follow me on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!
Also a reminder that the drawing for the earrings is Friday, I'll do it before 12pm my time. Good luck!!

Well it's June 4th and summer is here in Arizona! I saw the change with cacti blooming and the change in weather. It's been beautiful.
I signed on and didn't realize I hadn't posted since April. Time flies when you're busy beading. I've been busy with slipper and moccasin orders. Even made a pair of earrings that are the Eiffel Tower, that was fun. Now I'm working beadwork to attach to a vest, followed by another moccasin order. I love my beading job!
Father's day is coming up soon and I do have a few items in my store. I also accept custom orders. Please feel free to check out my online store at https://www.etsy.com/shop/AlaskaBeadwork.
So soon I'll be doing a give for 4th of July, Independence Day! A pair of earrings. I'll post it on Facebook hopefully sometime this week.
Thank you all for the likes, comments, and orders! I appreciate you all! What plans do you have this summer? Take care and enjoy the summer!!
As an artist selling online can be trying at times. As buyers we look at feedback to help us locate the right item. I do this when I'm researching a product to buy.
It's a little sad for me when I get negative feedback. I just logged in to my Amazon Seller account and saw I had one. I've responded back that I'll fix the item. We'll see what happens. I do try to make each customer happy! If it needs to be repaired, I'll be more than happy to fix it.
So now my Amazon account is "At-Risk" with this one negative feedback. I'm not sure what will happen next.
Please feel free to contact me at anytime to repair/fix an items that I have made. I want you the customer to be happy!
Thank you to ALL that have left feedback! I do appreciate it. It's nice to read through them!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Wishing everyone a great week! This weekend was good for me. I enjoyed a day of sewing! I was finally able to work on an idea I had. A beaded headband. I've done ones that are attachable to a headband but this one I've made is one that wraps around your head.
I used moose leather, which I then sewed using #11 seed beads and porcupine quills, giving it that special look! I then attached the fabric and elastic and sewed white elk leather on the back of the beaded headband, edged with the same pink seed beads I used in some of the flowers.
I really loved how it turned out and look forward to making more! So once I get a few I'll be listing them in the store! Stay tuned!!!
