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.
Frequency of Newsletters: As you can imagine it takes some time and effort to produce this newsletter. Since we do not charge for the newsletter, the only way we get compensated for producing the newsletter is when people make purchases in our store. When people make purchases within two days of our sending a newsletter, we interpret that purchase as a vote to keep the frequency of the newsletter at every two weeks. When people don't make purchases within two days of our sending a newsletter, we interpret that as a vote to send our newsletters less frequently. Lately, we've been getting fewer votes to send our newsletters every two weeks. For this reason, going forward we plan on adjusting the delay between sending our newsletters according to the votes we receive. Our readers can influence this delay by placing orders within two days of receiving our newsletter. This is basically supply and demand at work. We will adjust the supply of newsletters to match the demand. Boomer sez vote early and vote often.
New Jewelry Making Products:
We have added two new gemstone products to our WigJig store in the past month. In the left below you can view 8mm, round, Lavender CZs, item 3257 in our store. On the right below you can view 10mm, round, Man-made, Rubies, item 3256 in our store.
Comment on Bling Jewelry: We received the following comment on our Bling jewelry from Angel Messer.
"I ordered this set (10mm Round Emerald CZ item 3253 shown at right), with a six prong sliver earring setting to go with it, and it took less than a minute to set both stones. Then less than a minute to tighten them into their settings with a bent nose pliers. I received them right around Christmas time and was so pleased with them that I wore them for a week straight and everywhere I went. I got ooo's and ahhh's and "Boy Santa was sure good to you!!!!" One lady even had the nerve to ask how much they cost and I just looked her right in the eye and smiled real big!!!! These earrings are gorgeous. They do need to be worn with the wider clutch back, rather than the small butterfly, though, for better support, otherwise they will droop on your ear lobe. I am a jeweler's daughter and these pass VERY well for excellent emeralds, all the color and fire and depth you buy an emerald for. I know where to buy my emeralds now. Thanks, Gary."
Boomer sez a BIG WigJig lick on the cheek thank you to Angel for her very kind comments.
New Prices: Sometime in February we will be adjusting the prices on our Bling jewelry. We currently have our lowest prices and will be increasing the prices on almost all items. The reason for our price increase is simply that our main supplier has notified us that they will increase their costs to us for their products.
While the price of our Bling jewelry will increase in the future, the price for our book,"Wonderful, Wearable Wire" has decreased. The new retail price for this book is now $22.95. This is a savings of $7 from our original price.
