WigJig Jewelry Tools Presents our Jewelry Making Newsletter -- AKA Boomer Sez:
Our Spokesdog: If an insurance company can have a gecko, we have decided that we can have a spokesdog. Boomer, shown at right, is our spokesdog. If you select Boomer's picture at right, you will be able to view Boomer at his work.
How to Unsubscribe: If you signed up for our newsletter and then decided you don't want to receive it any more, the proper way to unsubscribe is to select the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of every newsletter e-mail or to follow our sign up link above. On that sign up page we also provide a way for people to unsubscribe.
Contribution to Race for the Cure: WigJig will contribute $1 for every order placed with our company between September 17th and October 17th to the Race for the Cure. Race for the Cure is part of the Susan G Komen foundation and is a charity that supports research toward a cure for breast cancer. The foundation has helped train more than 400 breast cancer researchers and has funded more than 1,800 research projects over the past 26 years. In fact the Komen Foundation has provided more money for breast cancer research and community health programs than any other organization with the exception of the US Government. We at WigJig have also placed our breast cancer awareness charm on sale for$2.23 each, 20% off the normal retail price. Finally, for those who want to contribute to the Komen Foundation directly, you can visit http://ww5.komen.org/.
Google Language Translation: We are experimenting with the Google Translation module on our web site and our store. This software is undergoing beta testing by Google. It is far from perfect, but it may be better than nothing for our foreign readers. You can view the translation module in the upper right portion of this web page. The good news is that this module will automatically and rapidly translate any web page to one of 35 languages. The bad news is that the translations are not perfect. There is more bad news -- you need to be able to read English to know where to go to request the translation. We hope that this application will help some of our readers to better enjoy our web site. If you would like to send us a comment on this translation software please click here. We don't have any ability to change thetranslation software, but we can remove it from our web site if it doesn't work.
Birthstone for October: The Birthstone for October is the tourmaline. Please select here to view more information on tourmaline gemstones. This month we are discounting our 8mm man-made green tourmaline (Item 3333) by 20%. Please select the picture at right to view this product.
New Jewelry Making Supplies:
We have just added 4mm low wall bezel findings to our Internet store. Now we have low wall bezel findings in sizes from 4mm to 10mm. These findings are one of the easiest ways to make jewelry. You can view a simple earring jewelry making project with our low wall bezel findings below-left. We also have a You Tube Video that shows how to use our low wall bezel findings to make earrings. You can view that jewelry making video here. You can view a close up of our 4mm low wall bezel findings below center-right and below far-right. Finally, in our new jewelry project for this month, we used our low wall bezel findings to make dangle earrings. You can view those dangle earrings below center-left.

Our Apologies: We were not able to send a newsletter in September. We are very sorry. WigJig as a company is in the process of moving. We are moving out of Maryland and ultimately will move to Florida or Texas. Both states have many benefits, including the fact that neither state has a state income tax. We hope to make a final decision on our move during the month of October. As anyone who has ever moved can testify, moving is a time consuming process. Our hope is that we will be able to get our future newsletters out in a timely manner without sacrificing quality. Again, we apologize to our newsletter subscribers that we have not been able to provide the number and quality of newsletters that we wanted.
