One of the things that I have to confess I am really bad at keeping up to date with is taking pictures of my completed jewellery. As a result I end up with quite a bit of jewellery for sale that hasn't ever been uploaded into any of my online stores. There have even been occasions when I have sold items of jewellery at markets that I have never taken a picture of.
Since I currently have quite a few pieces of jewellery completed but never photographed I therefore decided it was time to take myself in hand and get my photo taking up to date. To be honest I am not there yet, but at least I now have photos of all my earrings. As such I have been gradually adding new pairs of earrings to my Etsy store. Those pictured here are just three of the pairs of earrings that have been listed in the last few days.
Several more earrings have been listed including quite a few different variations of my V Style earrings. Now all I need to do is take photos of the remaining pieces of jewellery yet to be photographed. Watch this space!

I am so excited to announce that some of my pieces are now available in two local galleries in Waikanae on the Kapiti Coast.
The first gallery is the Artel Gallery.
This gallery is operated by a co-operative of five local artists who recognised the need for an outlet for Kapiti's artistic community. Space is given to invited artists and artisans from both Kapiti and also from around New Zealand.
The second gallery is the Mahara Gallery.
Mahara Gallery is the district public gallery for the Kapiti Coast. It offers a diversity of curated group and solo exhibitions in contemporary art and cultural heritage.

Having had to close my Madeit store when I left Australia I wanted to find a new site from which to sell my jewellery, preferably one in New Zealand. On doing some searching I found Felt. Felt is the New Zealand equivalent of Madeit. It is an online market place for New Zealand sellers to sell their handmade goods.
I have therefore set up My Felt Store and am gradually adding items to it. Although of course New Zealand is a much smaller market than Australia hopefully I will be seeing sales from here soon.

With it being nearly two years since my last post it was clear that I needed to start anew. Of course in that time there have been some major changes, the greatest of which has been my move to New Zealand.
I am now based on the beautiful Kapiti Coast on the North Island of New Zealand. I live within easy walking distance to the beach and am now much closer to family.
Shazzabeth Creations has been a bit quiet during my time of adjustment but things are starting to pick up again and once more I am now busy creating and have re-ignited my passion for creating beautiful hand made jewellery.
I look forward to sharing my new endeavours with you all.
Finally for now, the last post that I did (all that time ago) showed an incomplete piece that I was working on. Well, it took ages to finish but I did finally get there. So here is the finished piece:
