Free Tutorial: Viking Weave for Cabochon Setting

This is a really good video for learning how to make a viking weave bezel setting for Cabochons. It will take some practice to get good even loops for the bezel, but it just like everything else, practice makes perfect. There is nothing worse than sloppy wire work! Good Luck, I know there are lotz of people paying for tutorials without a video.

Announcing a New Shipping Policy

Effective Immediately:

Attention USA and Canada: Free Shipping !!
All shipping charges have been removed from the cart.
Minimum Order: $20.00 to get free shipping
(Still no penalty for small Orders!)
Orders under $20.00 apply the shipping & handling charge button.
Shipping is a flat fee, $2.50 no matter how many stones you purchase or what the weight is.

Why am I doing this? Well, I hate paying shipping as much as you do.

Over the last two years I have had only 3 orders under $20.00 I've decided it will just be more simple to eliminate those nasty shipping charges, and I like keeping things simple.

*(Just in case I missed one, you have two choices. You can email me and I will correct the add to cart button, or I can just refund the ship charge should it show up. I hate to admit mistakes and over sights but heck, I am human. It was quite an undertaking to remove the shipping charges. )

Thank you all for your continued busines \o/

Creating Your Social Media Plan

I bumped into this article and wanted to share it. The article makes sense and I think many of us jump on social media without a plan, we just want in and to be a part of it without really knowing much about it.

If you want to stop and get back to basics, you might want to read this, it's in three parts. . . . .
