Announcing the "Sale of the Fortnight"


I have been thinking about this for a while, and have finally decided to try having a "Sale of the Fortnight" on my website. I will choose something new every two weeks (that's a fortnight) to place "on sale" at the lowest price I'll ever offer. I already have the next several offerings planned and photographed. I will announce the newest offering here, but you could always go directly to the website to see what's on sale. Some items will be "one of a kind" while others can be duplicated.

I got the idea for this from my days in the Geology Department at Carleton College. One of the display cases held a "Map of the Fortnight," which changed about every two weeks (people get busy, you know). I always thought it was cool to check out the new map, plus the whole phrase has a neat rhythm to it.

The first item I am offering are a pair of my Viking knit bead cap earrings, made with Argentium silver and AAA faceted Amethyst pear-shaped briolettes. You can purchase these dainty beauties for $30, including shipping!

Be sure to check back regularly to find out what is being offered!

I absolutely LOVE these earrings! Do you have a tutorial available for the weave? If so, I would love to have it.
All the best,

Thank you! A tutorial on making these is forthcoming in Step-by-Step Wire magazine. I also intend to work on a more comprehensive tutorial for Viking knitting in general with lots of photos and tips for wire-handling. I will certainly be posting information on that when it is done!
