Rising from the dark nothingness and shadowed in the hidden places of the internet that Google cannot find, it beckons to curious adventurers with the promise of ebooks, printables, tutorials, and many other ways to enjoy your new jewelry.
I wanted a way to reward people who subscribe to http://www.starlit-sorceress-jewelry.com/Newsletter/ my monthly email newsletter , and this seemed like the most awesome way to do it.
What's in the newsletter? Well, it's pretty much the same thing as watching me here on deviantART, only more convenient, more content, all in one place, and only once a month.
Thinking about it? You can browse past issues h
This contest was extremely hard to judge, and once I'd narrowed it down to half the entries, it was almost impossible. If I hadn't added a runner-up prize level, I'd still be judging now.
Thank you so much to everyone who entered. The variety of entries was better than I could have imagined! I was really amazed by all the creativity. I saw the bra turned into a vest. I saw the neck chain used as a signature weapon. I saw the red drapery turned into skirts and loose, baggy pants. I was amused to notice so many people leaving the boots as they were after I mentioned that I liked them. I saw Leias suited for ballroom dancing, sneaking around da
!PookaGoneRabid (https://www.deviantart.com/pookagonerabid) is the winner of the Mini May contest with her beautiful book: http://starlit-sorceress.deviantart.com/art/Stephanielawartbook-371039187
I'm looking forward to designing a bookmark for this beautiful artbook. Watercolors, blue waves, golden sun, and fairies! Stay tuned, this is going to be good!
EDIT: Four days left until June's mega contest. In the meantime, take a few quick pictures of your most beautiful, artistic book and bookmark, and win jewelry designed just for them.
I love browsing bookstores and thrift stores for beautiful, artistic books and bookmarks, and I'd like to see some of your
A past contest (and a future one too!) was/will be about photomanipulating my jewelry into something specific, such as a desktop background.
Now I'm just looking for an image for its own sake. Create a scene, environment, or anything else you think would fit the jewelry piece and look awesome.
Contest lasts the entire month of April
1. Deviation should be categorized in "photomanipulation", of reasonable size and quality and not watermarked.
2. Link to the jewelry you used, and mention somewhere that I made it. (Don't forget to respect the usage rules of the rest of your photos too!)
3. Must only be submitted to DA during
Sorceress Council hosts Thursday evening fantasy-inspired community discussions, and this week's topic is all things fanfiction. Read it? Write it? Join the discussion: http://www.starlit-sorceress-jewelry.com/Blog/?p=37
This month is another contest for people who have already bought something from me. I've done a modeling photo contest before. For this contest, photograph a jewelry piece any way you'd like. It just can't be worn by somebody.
Contest lasts the entire month of March
1. Deviation should be categorized in "photography", of reasonable size and quality and not watermarked.
2. Credit me with a link in the description. (e.g. "Jewelry by *Starlit-Sorceress")
3. Must only be submitted to DA during the month of March, 2013. (This is so I will never biased toward any "old favorites" that others have already sent me)
4. G-rated plea

The only blog I know of where the comments are more important than the original post.
I'm stepping out of the spotlight a little bit. Each week, I'll post a short "Fantasy-inspired" topic, and then join visitors in a comment discussion.
(More topics: Sci-fi, Books, Movies, Games, Art, Writing, Geek culture, Etc)
Here's the link: http://www.starlit-sorceress-jewelry.com/Blog/
Why not stop by and share your topic suggestions? :)
For those who haven't heard yet, starting yesterday, the US Postal Service is raising prices quite a bit for sending mail outside the US.
For a long time now, their prices have been really cheap compared to private companies like UPS and FedEX, but they're having some money problems, so they couldn't keep it up.
Here are my shipping prices now: http://starlit-sorceress-jewelry.com/Order/
This won't change anything for my US clients, and future international clients won't know there was a change, but that still leaves some people who would get a big surprise someday, so I wanted to avoid that.
So how does this change my offer of free shipp
A lot of times, when I see something awesome I want to buy someday, I end up either losing the link or forgetting about it. DeviantART's +watch feature is great, but you can't see all of an artist's updates in one place...and I want to share my work with people outside DeviantART too.
So to that end, I'm designing an email newsletter that's especially friendly for people watching my work and waiting to buy something someday. It would only be once a month, and it would have a very short summary of everything...latest jewelry, news, etc. in one place.
If you saw this journal because you're +watching me, then chances are, you fit the descripti
My website has the correct prices now: http://www.starlit-sorceress-jewelry.com/Order/Custom/ and it's taking a while, but I'm about half done updating all my deviations. Everything should say the right price again by tomorrow evening.
Don't worry, though. I'm offering a week-long grace period. Place your order by January 15th and pay before February, and get everything half off (which is the same or better than the old prices.)
My apologies for the abrupt change, but I've been improving my craft and my business without changing prices for over a year and a half now. Based on the average prices on Etsy for wire-wrapped jewelry, I'm still un

Meh, I'd pick one at random. I might be more enthusiastic if you showed me a business card with THIS necklace! (Comment with the one I overlooked.)
(I want to offer a selection of photos with my business cards, but I don't want it to be huge. I've already chosen one for earrings and one for "other jewelry". Help me choose which necklace photos to use!)
