Shop Update: Modern Elm

The moment I have been waiting for is here. My Etsy shop has had a lot of new changes, and it is now, ModernElm. I feel that the name is more fitting. It represents the kind of items I’m selling, the items are for your style and represent you, hence the new abbreviation. I’m also beginning to incorporate more natural elements into my creations, and the name stuck.

The changes are also just in time for the 1 year anniversary of my shop opening, which is tomorrow July 9. And to celebrate, I am offering a one day sale of 20% off all items in the shop! So tomorrow, please visit one of our social media sites for details on the sale!

The Shop: Fine Jewelry Photoshoot

Today was a nice cloudy day outside, giving me good conditions for re-shooting some of my fine jewelry pieces in the shop. The clouds give a nice cover to the sun’s bright rays, while still giving me nice enough lighting for some shots. I decided to re-shoot some of my items because I’m not liking the plain white background that I chose to show case my finest items. I thought that they needed a little nature vibe to them to bring out their true colors and let them shine. I think they came out pretty good considering I’m only shooting with an Iphone!

Here’s a few of before and afters, I hope you enjoy them. Feel free to leave me a comment of what you think of the new backgrounds as well! I love having public feedback to work with, it really helps me know what people are looking for when deciding on whether or not to click on an item.

Fashion: Spring/ Summer Finds

With the arrival of summer coming up, I thought I would share some Etsy finds that I simply adore. Get ready because the first day of summer is officially June 21.

According to Pantone, the Spring/ Summer trending colors of 2013 are Dusk Blue, Lemon Zest, Emerald, Tender Shoots, Linen, Monaco Blue, Nectarine, Poppy Red, African Violet, and Grayed Jade.

Emerald was chosen as 2013’s color of the year, and I used this guide to help with my choices. I do favor the simple/ minimalist and vintage look, and it really reflects in my Etsy finds…

  1. 1980s high waist pants emerald green by brownbagvintage
  2. Leather Fringe Plunging Necklace in Lemon Zest by amywaltz
  3. Set of 3 Chartreuse – Burlap Vintage Doily Zipper Clutch by JuneberryStitches
  4. Beaded Geometric Brooch by HoneyThistle
  5. Cactus Quartz with 24k Gold Inlay by 443Jewelry
  6. women’s red silk Chiffon skirt by colorfulday01
  7. Faceted Geometric Wooden Necklace by UnaOdd
  8. Leather Tassel Keychain, Orange by MELVINAVENUEII
  9. Emerald green oxford brogue shoes by goodbyefolk

None of the product images are mine, and I do not take credit for any of them. The rights remain with the shop owners.

Shop Update: International Shipping

Good afternoon everyone! I just have a quick update from my Etsy shop, ProlificCreations. With some research, and more than a few nudges from possible customers, we now offer jewelry shipping to everyone. And when I say everyone, I mean it. We used to only ship to the US, Canada, and the UK, but now we offer world wide at an affordable price! Also, this update is only for our jewelry pieces, no home decor or wedding items, unless upon singular request. Sorry! (Those prices are much higher and complicated to compute.)

Needless to say, I am very excited and can’t wait to make some customers happy world wide!

Bye for now!
Adios. Au Revoir. Auf Wiedersehen. Ciao.
