Who uses moo? I do!

Using mini moo cards as labels
I have long been a fan of and their range of products. I have luxe business cards, stickers and now mini moo cards!
Mini moos are half the size of normal business cards. They are great little cards and I have decided to use them as labels for my licorice allsort range of jewellery. I currently only sell that range on Etsy but I've decided to pop into a few local shops to see if they will stock them on sale or return. So I got the labels printed because

a) I think they look professional
b) It means that anyone who buys my jewellery (or sees my jewellery in a shop) will see my web address, twitter name and email address
c) I think they need a label to tell people not to try to eat the beads!

My moo stickers and luxe cards

I bought the luxe cards after I started getting celebrity commissions. They are a really lovely quality and give the right impression for my silver jewellery.

The stickers are great for adding to packaging and jiffy bags as I do primarily sell through Etsy and post jewellery to customers. It is great to be able to add this professional touch to my artisan business.

2018 Black Friday deals for metal clay jewellers

It's Black Friday again and even before the day arrived there were lots of deals around (and surely more to come). Black Friday is fairly new to the UK but it's always good to look out for a deal! Here are some of the best I've seen for metal clay artists. Do share any I've missed in the comments and I'll add them in

Clay, materials and tools
Cookson Gold has discounts on clay and tools
I haven't seen any other discounts on metal clay but there are a lot of discounts on gemstones and beads out there including Beads Direct and Kernowcraft. Elsilver also have discounts, it's worth checking out their 25% off offer on dies.
