Update on my new venture plus travel plans.  The Mad Raven Designs is nearly ready to open.  I have completed sterling silver charm necklaces and a few bronze charms.  Lots of hearts :)  I had hopes of getting the Mad Raven Etsy shop open before I leave for Minnesota but its just not in the cards.  When I return I will add the items and post its opening here. 
I'm headed to Minnesota to meet with Dept 56.  We are going to expand Halloween and reintroduce the Christmas line.  Lots of talk, lots of idea's.  I am excited.

Boy do I have something new brewing...
For the past 5 years I've dabbled in precious metal clay.  For those who are not familiar with pmc, its a wonderful product that is just that... "metal clay".  From a little ball of clay you can make charms, bracelets, earrings or pendants.  Its not limited to just that but you get my drift.  So I've just opened up a new shop in ETSY and my shop is named Mad Raven Designs.  I am putting together the necklaces I have made and hopefully I can get those listed soon.  You will not see any holiday themed pieces.  These will mostly be hearts.  At least for now. Some with texture, some that are "broken" and have stitches and some just plain pretty.  The charms will be in sterling silver and bronze.  As soon as I get some inventory in my Mad Raven Designs shop I will post a link her for you.
