Internet access from home coming soooooooooooooon...

Yes, finally. I cannot begin to detail the headaches I have gotten dealing with the current crop of customer disservice people. Internet providers everywhere: take note. Your staff are driving potential customers AWAY with their lunatic misunderstanding of what services you offer.

On a happier note, I was just at the Antique Mall adding new beads to my display and thought, hmm... it's looking a little vacant on the right hand side, and there's definitely a gap on the black necklace display. I dug out the showcase picture from another post and realised I'd sold the crystal and skull necklace:

...and also a pewter wolf's head pendant (3rd from the top on the black display board).

I'm currently envying my friends who will be soon departing for the Tucson bead shows. One of these years! But closer to home, don't forget The Gem Expo coming up in Toronto, March 14-15-16. I'll be there with lots of new goodies.

Thanks for looking!

Congrats on getting Internet and especially selling a couple pieces. A salon is interested in carrying my jewelry. I just have to make some :)

I'm trying to go back to Time Warner from Verizon, and I've spent at least two hours on the phone. They can't seem to port me over, and I found out yesterday from tech that instead of $55 per month, they were going to bill me at $198 per month. WTH? I'm waiting to hear from tech again today to get this all sorted out.

I'm getting excited about going to Tucson. I'll be sure to post pictures on my Facebook page or blog. It's going to be a blast!!!

$198 vs $55??? That's insane.

I am so looking forward to your Tucson pictures. PLEASE let me post some here. FYI, Joanne has the best selection of round beads anywhere, most diameters, many stones. The skull beads I used in this necklace came from her.
