New Website

I opened my new SHOPIFY website today with a tin snippets update- include 20 components, toggles and pendants.

Please take a minute to check out my new site and let me know what you think of it. I know there is still some tweaking that needs to be done, for example the banner is too big for the mobile version of the site so I may have to do something there.

I will be adding more pages like galleries, and calendars for upcoming events, and probably link to my Flickr page. I am signed up to take a free Webinar on how to open a Shopify store, next week.  I am looking forward to it!

It's so good to be back up and running after a short hiatus while my computer broke and replacement computer came in. But we are back up and running!! YAY!

Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday!
Can you believe 2017 is in a few days!!??

Woodland Creatures TIN SNIPPETS Update TODAY!



These are SO CUTE! I will updating my website www.loreleieurto.com with lots of new toggles, connectors, charms and clasps today at 4pm eastern standard timezone.

What do you do with them? Well, they are great for any DIY jewelry project!  Make your own earrings with the charms. I use all brass split jump rings and you can certainly remove the jumprings and rearrange them on each riveted piece if you want it to face a different way. You can take them off all together if you want, just use pliers to open the jump rings and carefully remove them.

Or you can use them as is and plop them onto a necklace or bracelet design!

Some will come with lobster clasps, possibly toggles. Toggles are on order and may not arrive until tomorrow - we'll see what happens, but these can be used with any type of lobster clasp, toggle bar, S type clasp you have on hand. I may just leave that part up to you!

See you at 4!

November 11, 2016

Coming Monday 11/14




I have literally been glued to my computer for the last two days, creating, filming, editing, and writing a new ebook for you!!  I am ALWAYS asked to do tutorials on how to finish the ends of cord, leather, ribbon- you name it.  Sometimes a book with just photos and written instructions is not enough. I am that person- I need video. I need to see it being done before I can really wrap my head around it.

So I asked for some feedback on Facebook and decided, to just do it. Just sit down and film and do it. So I did.  Most of it, I admit is unscripted, but I have been making these types of things now for 10 years. Yep. I am shocked at that number myself. How can I have been making jewelry for 10 years? It cannot be possible, it feels like I just started yesterday!

Once I decided what to do the ebook on, then I had to narrow it down because let's face it. There has to be hundreds of different ways to finish the ends of fiber. Just think about all the different KINDS of fiber there is!

So I picked FOUR of my FAVORITES..... flat leather, linen cord, ribbon, and round leather cord.

And then I narrowed it down again because think about all of the different ways of finishing fiber ends, there has to be a gazillion. So I picked FOUR that I tend to gravitate towards whenever I'm making my own jewelry.

It became pretty evident early on, that this was going to take some serious brain power and TIME, and lots of patience. There are many steps in writing an ebook.  I filmed all the videos and edited each one in iMovie.  And then on day 2, (and yes, it took me only 2 days because when I get something in my head I have to get it out or I can't sleep, eat, or knit and that's a damn travesty. PLUS+ I have been thinking about doing this sort of thing for a loooong time and it flowed out of me pretty willy nilly.
 I wrote the whole 21 page ebook- and and voila. It'll be ready to purchase on my website on Monday November 14.

Here's a tidbit of what to expect:

  I have put together a small collection of tutorials on finishing the ends of 4 different types of materials: round leather cord, waxed linen cording, flat leather lace, and silk ribbon. Each time of material will include 3 different ways to finish the ends, to accommodate a clasp or other materials or components.  I am including written instructions for each tutorial, but will ALSO provide a link to coordinating video tutorial.


All videos are available at Vimeo.com (you do not need an account to view them!) and each one is password protected. After you find the password in this PDF, you’ll be able to click the link and be redirected to each coordinating video tutorial where you’ll insert the password and view them.

[If you are familiar with my other PDF tutorials, this won't be a surprise as they are mostly all like this.]

For each material, I will also share some of my favorite suppliers to help you in your quest to obtain some of these materials in the future for your own designs.
There are no finished jewelry tutorials in this PDF, but these technique tutorials should give you an idea of how simple they are to use in your own designs! This PDF is full of basic fundamentals to help you use fiber in your designs.  I hope you enjoy them!


Thank you Veterans for your Service!

I can't offer just the tutorials for sale in my Etsy shop because I cannot allocate the coupon JUST for one type of listing like I can in my Indiemade shop. Bummer.

Revisited Design





I first started making these beaded chain bracelets back in 2014, and I'm not sure why the design was so short lived. Not only do I love the overall look of this style bracelet but I really enjoy creating them, although somewhat time consuming.











I use linen cording and string each of the glass seed beads and then weave them back and forth through the chain. These three bracelets are each different - one is double stranded, 1 has a bit of a beaded "spine", and the third has a more simple beaded design without the spine.

What makes each of these special is the handmade pewter buttons from my friends at Green Girl Studios. They are a husband and wife team down in North Carolina and they carve each mold by hand and create cast button, pendants, and beads with pewter. Each one is a work of art, and each one is the focal piece of my bracelet design.

These are available in my Etsy shop.
