Pixe's News September, 2009
I love the month of September! When my son was younger, it was back to school, and peace and quiet for a few hours. Now, as I’m older, I look forward to the cooler fall weather, and the changing leaves! I find so much inspiration in fall...It is truly my favorite season!! Perhaps this fall, I will fill the gas tank, grab my sketchbook, a few pencils, and take a fall foliage drive!

Caring for your Handmade Jewelry, Part 2
Last month we discussed the general care of your handmade jewelry. This month, the topic is storing your handmade jewelry.
To keep your handcrafted jewelry looking new, storing your pieces properly is important. Always store your jewelry in a dry place. Leaving it in the bathroom will only cause it to tarnish quicker...This is fine if you like that look.
If your jewelry came in a plastic bag, store it there...it prevents tarnishing and will prevent scratching.
Storing is easy...just keep in a clean, dry spot, and your jewelry will look like new for years to come!
This month, Pixe’s sale is going to be a bit different! Since September is my birthday month, I’m having a great big celebration the week of my birthday! See the calendar of events below for the special in person sales! I’ve been working hard to make lots of new pieces for this event!!
