Have You Tried These? You should.

Seriously.

These elastic hair ties are awesome. They won’t damage or break your hair, they won’t leave that horrible crease that just screams “ponytail!” They are basically magic.

Okay, maybe not magic. Exactly. But they are as close as a hair tie can get.

These things are quite popular lately. You can find them at your local gym, your yoga studio, even at trendy retail stores. Thing is, as awesome as they are, they can be really expensive. I’m not kidding. One particularly popular retail chain is selling them for over $2 a piece! A piece!

If you’re like me, you probably consider that to be a little ridiculous. I mean, they are really cute and everything, but they are hair ties after all. How many of these do you lose on a regular basis? Mine, no matter how hard I try to keep them hidden, inevitably become cat toys. So spending over $2 for one seems a little excessive to me.

That said, I’m excited to say that I am now offering these fantastic little accessories in my Etsy shop

Image

Here, you can purchase the ties for much lower prices. Don’t spend two bucks at the gym just because you forgot your boring old elastic band at home. Plan ahead! In my shop, you can currently purchase the ties in various color themes and three different quantities:

6 for $5.00, 13 for $10.00, and 27 for $20.00

Less than a dollar each. Even better? The more you buy, the cheaper they are!

So head on over and get some for yourself!

Happy Shopping!

My Scarf Obsession

I love scarves.

And though I love them, I don’t believe I wear them quite often enough. My coworker, Courtney, wears these beautiful scarves nearly every day and it has awaken me to the idea that I have been neglecting mine.

Today I am wearing one given to me for Christmas by my fiancé, Alec. It is a sheer, sequin embellished scarf from Target (they have a pretty amazing selection of fashionable scarves there year-round… I love Target). I adore this scarf. Also, Alec is a great listener because I’m pretty sure I swooned over this scarf for weeks before Christmas, refusing to buy it for myself as I was adhering to my strict “no gifts for self after Thanksgiving” rule. So, as you can imagine, Christmas morning I was a happy girl.

You know another great place to find some lovely scarves? Etsy. Granted, Etsy is a great place to find pretty much anything vintage or handmade these days. I could, and have, spent many hours at a time on Etsy, just wandering around from shop to shop. In recent years, I have done a large amount of my Christmas shopping on the site as well. So easy.

Anyway, I was wandering around the shops this morning and added a few pretty things to my favorites list:


Here’s a lovely, ruffly number. It is from SenasShop and has the fantastic price of only $19.90.

Love it.


This hand painted beauty is from TeresaMare… in Greece! Isn’t it stunning?


I am in love with this color. Actually, it would almost perfectly match the walls in our living room.

This one is from JANNYSGIRL.


This one is actually text from Les Mis! Amazing, right? There are lots of similarly fantastic items in the storiarts shop.

And finally, I want this one so bad. What is it about Chevrons that does this to me?

This one is from MegansMenagerie.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed checking out these great scarves! Are you a scarf person? Describe your favorite one to me or share a link in the comments to your current obsession!

On a side note, I may not sell scarves, but I have other pretty items to adorn your neck! Check them out in my shop on Etsy and use the coupon code BLOG5 for 5% your purchase!

Blog Features!!!

Yesterday the Savannah Renée shop was featured on the blog Our Creative World! This great blog features a different artist every day, giving each artist to share a little something about themselves, their craft, their shops, websites, etc. Great idea, right?! I was thrilled about a month ago when Tonie from Our Creative World and the Etsy shop SacredOak emailed me and asked me if I would like to be featured! So, I wrote up a short little article about the Savannah Renée Etsy shop and how I got started, and Tonie sent me back the date for my feature! You can read my June 17th feature here!

While I am on the subject, I just want to say that blog features are absolutely wonderful! They can increase traffic to your site, inform people about your work, and best of all, they often give readers a chance to see how other people feel about your art!

Here are a few other wonderful blogs that Savannah Renée has been featured on recently!

My newest bracelet, Peridona, was featured on a neat blog called The Etsian.  The blog’s author, Kristina from KTPaperCrafts, sent me a message to let me know about the feature and it just brightened my day! You can read the Peridona feature here!

Jessica from J.C. Jewelry has a great WordPress blog titled Great Jewelry and the Finer Things where she rights about “J.C. Jewelry, fashion, cooking, and all the things that make life worth living!” Jessica was kind enough to feature the Splendor earrings in a post titled “What Kind Of Earrings Look Best With My Face Shape?” This post is awesome, informative, and features a variety of great Etsians.

Evelyn was also recently featured in a blog by Karen of MysticWynd. Her blog, also titled Mystic Wynd, featured Evelyn in a great post about necklace length. You can find the post here!

Hope you enjoy reading through these great blogs! I will be doing my own feature soon, similar to the one I posted back in March. I will be going through my Favorites list once again and posting a few selections here!

I’m off to work on a few new pieces for now!

As always, happy shopping!

Love,

Savannah Renée

Other Recent Work

A Couple Custom Pieces

The other things I have been working on recently are custom pieces. I recently completed another custom eyeglass chain which will go up today as my first Savannah Renée Etsy shop custom listing! Here is a preview of the item!

Custom Listing

Another project I completed recently was actually one for myself! You know, I have to keep something every once in awhile! Actually, this item I made for myself as a sort-of test item. There isn’t anything like this in the Savannah Renée Etsy shop yet, but there should be soon! Introducing my first cocktail ring!

Cocktail Ring

This ring is extra large and extra shiny! Made with an adjustable silver plated ring base and 6mm Swarovski Crystals. I will be keeping this particular ring for myself, but you should expect to see rings in this same style in my shop soon!

Comments, as always, are more than welcome!

Happy Shopping!

Hello, Old Friends…

Yes, I’m Still Here

I have just been super busy. I apologize. 

However, you may be interested in the variety of things that made me so busy! Well, for starters, I just sent out a package to one of my favorite customers the other day, which was very exciting. AND, being that she was the first customer for my sale, I got to make her a pair of earrings as a free gift! I must say, when I was done with them, I wanted to keep them for myself!

What else have I been working on? Well, I was going to wait until the pictures were taken to announce this, but I’m very excited and can’t wait! Since both the ever-so-popular Envy bracelet sold, followed by its sister – Desire – this past weekend, I have decided to create a whole line of bracelets in that same charm bracelet style! They will be in the Etsy shop very soon, maybe even today!

And I have even more news… soon I will be unveiling a new website! I’m currently in the beginning of design stages, but I will be sure to let you know as soon as it is up and running. I will still be using both WordPress and the Savannah Renée shop on Etsy, but I’m hoping the new website will provide:

  • A more detailed profile on the Savannah Renée jewelry line
  • An extensive gallery of every item, both sold and available, including custom pieces
  • Easy access to this WordPress for updates, the Savannah Renée Etsy Shop for happy shopping, and an opportunity to join the mailing list so you are never out of the loop on a sale or new collection

So be sure to check back often for more news about the new website!

And in other news, though unrelated to jewelry, Savannah Renée will *hopefully* soon be getting a puppy. Yes, after years of fighting the urge, I have decided that it is just about time for me to have my own canine companion so I can stop borrowing those of my friends and family. And after five years of debating breeds and sizes, I think I have finally narrowed down my search to the Shiba Inu. After holding and playing with perhaps the softest, sweetest puppy ever, interacting with adults of the breed, watching endless videos on youtube, reading every website and testimonial I come across… I just can’t seem to tear myself away from the thought of having my very own Shiba. Thoughts?

Now, back to jewelry… I’m off to take pictures!
