New Listings - Soap AND Jewelry !!

Finally, some new listings on Etsy!

Pomegranate Fig is back in the mix! Yippee!!

A new fragrance free. This is for a couple of my customers that have asked for a soap with no wheat germ oil, and no sweet almond oil. This one has olive oil, coconut oil, rice bran oil, grapeseed oil, and avocado oil. No nuts, no wheat. :)

I brought back Orange and Clove, this time with a bit of ground clove added. It smells delish!

Lemony Mint with Shea Butter. A great blend of orange, lemon, peppermint, and rosemary. Hmmmmm, nice! This is the soap I was in the process of cutting when my soap cutter bit the dust on me, so some of the soaps don't have as clean a cut as I like.

White Spice. This is an interesting fragrance. It's a very sharp spicy scent, sort of like sniffing a cup of hot orange spice tea.

AND ....

I have been making some jewelry!

A turquoise necklace with lots of sterling silver spacers.

And matching turquoise bracelet

These sterling silver earrings match really nicely

As do these turquoise earrings

And finally, a pair of Swarovski Crystal earrings. Can you say bling bling?

Of course, a gratuitous cat picture. How good is sleeping in the sun!!

What's on the curing rack ??

Well, let's see ...

There's Pomegranate Fig, which will be ready in about a week. And from the same soaping session, a new batch of Palmarosa Lavender.

Orange & Clove with shea butter, with more orange, less clove than my previous batches. And also with shea butter, a nice blend of lemon, orange, peppermint, and rosemary. This came out a lovely creamy yellow color. I can't wait to list it!
