WigJig Has Moved: If you could have looked at the past 100 years and tried to select the best year possible to leave Maryland and move to a warmer climate, you could not have selected a better year than leaving in 2009 prior to the Winter of 2010. Maryland has had between 50 and 60 inches of snow in the past month and may have more coming. WigJig is happy to report that San Antonio, our new home, hasn't had any snow and we like it that way.
Birthstone for February: The birthstone for February is the ameythst. Please select here to view more information on amethyst gemstones. We sell both man-made and mined amethyst gemstones. Please select the picture at right to view these products in our Internet store. This month, we have placed our mined, 6mm AAA grade amethyst gemstone, item 3355, on sale for $7.19 per pair. This is an outstanding price for real amethyst gemstones, mined from the earth.
Birthstone for March: The birthstone for March is the aquamarine. Please select here to view more information on the aquamarine. For the month of March, we have placed our 8mm man-made, AAA grade aquamarine gemstones,item 3208, on sale for $7.99 per pair.
What's New with WigJig Jewelry Tools:
We have worked long and hard to get Super Pegs that were 3/32 inch on top, but would fit into our WigJig Delphi. This would allow the Delphi to have a peg that was 1/2 way between the 1/16" normal Delphi peg and our current 3/16" Super Peg for the Delphi. This has proven hard to do for technical and supply reasons. Fortunately, we believe that we have overcome our problems and anticipate having these 3/32" Super Pegs for the Delphi shipped to us within the next week. This new item will become our Item 4028 once it is in stock. It will take us a week to inspect the new pegs. We anticipate beginning to sell the new 3/32" Super Pegs for the Delphi in the second week of March. These Super Pegs will be packaged four to a bag. When they are introduced, we will begin selling them in a 2 for 1 sale. If you order one bag of these pegs, we will send two bags (8 pegs total) at the same price. Our concern is that we won't have fully tested this new part and by sending you two packages (8 pegs) we can feel confident that at least four of the pegs will be the right size. If we fail to get a customer four working pegs out of two packages, we will send more packages to that customer or refund the purchase price.
Judging a Book by It's Cover:
We received many kind and sympathetic comments about Boomer's bout with lip cancer. We deeply appreciated every response. Many people shared their own stories about judging a book by it's cover. We also appreciated that. We are smarter now than we were before Boomer's surgery.
Because of the interest in Boomer's condition, we will share a couple of pictures of Boomer now. Please remember these pictures were taken from the worst possible angle to show the scar on his lip. Boomer doesn't mind the scar and we don't mind it either. We are just happy that he is alive and healthy. For those of our readers who may not be interested in our pet, please forgive our self-indulgence. Judging from the e-mails, Boomer seems to have more fans than we do.
