Tagging jewelry

On Tuesday, I talked about my experience of leaving an Elephant Hyde dumbbell label on a piece of jewelry while I tumbled it to clean and shine it. Well, after you remove the labels to clean the piece, you need to put an new label on the piece. Great fun ... but a part of the business. One of my personal pet peeves is going to a store or craft fair and not having pieces priced. So... I need to bite the bullet and just do it!

That said, it is not the easiest thing to do. Maneuvering the little dumbbells (cute name) so that they stay on the piece with out sticking to it and still making that nice little round label. People ask me how I can maneuver my little rings for my chain maille. Sometimes that is easier than putting on those little dumbbell labels. (I'm getting to like that name, dumbbell!)

This is a break from putting on labels. (Did you guess?) So, back to work. The sidewalk show is tomorrow and no more putting it off! If you are in the area, the show is a Homespun Treasures in North Easton, MA from 10 AM to 5 PM Saturday, September 20, 2008. That is at the intersection of Rt 138 and Main Street. Near the Dunken Donuts. (Now that is a well known landmark)

  1. Good luck with the show! I hate having to label too - we all much rather make jewelry than do the boring stuff.
