It's Finally Here! New Online Store - New Look!

Happy New Year!!

I know I haven't blogged in what seems like quite a while -but I've been extremely busy. Aside from having created a handful of new pieces I've been diligently working on improving your shopping experience.

Today, I am so very excited to announce the new online store has been finished and tested, as promised for 2007. There are still a few minor things to tweak, including better quality thumbshots for each product and better organization of products. BUT, shopping at Crystal Allure has never been easier!!

With the new store your shopping experience is now improved through an account creation that offers (to name just a few) order tracking, mailing address management, discount offers AND now you can pay using either PayPal or your credit card! Also forthcoming will be a gift certificate option -great for gifts!

In the next few days I'll be working on finishing up the smaller details of the new store so that I can get to the introduction of all the new pieces for early 2007 -stay tuned.....

The only caveat to the new store is even though it was tested I am nervous a customer might have a problem checking out but if for any reason you do -PLEASE email me so that I can get that problem fixed.

Thank you and happy shopping!!

In Preparation For The Spring 2007 Collection

Last night I began work on a new earring design that will premier for Spring 2007 and I'm so excited about the new jewelry coming next year that I can barely contain myself!

I had ordered the beads for this design earlier in the week and they arrived last night. I have a ton of other projects on the bench right now but I wanted to work on this one particular design. A few hours later I've completed three pairs. I'm absolutely loving this new design and can't wait to share it with all of you!

Although you'll have to wait until early 2007...sorry. : (

BUT, I am positive you're going to love these new designs! : )

Join Me At The Open House

This coming Saturday will be your last chance to pick up great Crystal Allure Creations, including one-of-a-kind jewelry, before the new year!

The open house will begin at 1:00 pm and end at 4:00 pm at my bead studio located in Rochester, New York (contact me for directions). Remember, it's an open house, so you can come in and shop at your leisure -no need to sit and listen to a pitch. I'm not a big fan of those types of shows myself and much prefer open houses any day! Or maybe I should say, "open bead studio".

Once again, I'll remind you that you can find some fantastic jewelry at fantastic prices -all in the name of moving inventory. There is so much planned for 2007 that a whole new line of jewelry is just ONE of the great things to come!

I'm looking forward to seeing you Saturday!

Happy Shopping!

Three New Items Added to Web Specials

You really can't miss out on these sale prices! They are astronomically low! Now you can own a Crystal Allure Beaded Jewelry original at a terrific price. Three new pieces have been added to the specials today. They include:

~Hearts n' Roses bracelet (snag the matching earrings on sale as well!)
~Grapes Galore bracelet (snag the matching earrings on sale as well!)
~Hugs n' Kisses bracelet

But remember to hurry -once they're gone, they're gone!

I've been asked why I have such a great sale going on right now. And it's really very simple -it's all in the name of change and growth. In looking ahead to 2007 there are many great things coming and to look forward to. In implementing these changes and attaining my goals for the coming year I've simply had to decrease my inventory.

Happy Shopping!

Only 22 more days until Christmas

Shopping at holiday time can be very stressful no matter where you live. And on the weekends it can be just downright ridiculous to go anywhere near a mall or store. That is why I do most of my shopping online -even for gifts. No stress, I can shop from the comfort of my home (or office...shhhh!) and the selections are great!

So I invite you to grab a cup of coffee, tea or whatever you like best (fully-leaded egg nog?!) and do your holiday shopping at Crystal Allure Creations. You'll find an excellent selection of Swarovski crystal, gemstone and pearl jewelry and accessories to make the season bright!

Every woman has sugar plum dreams of sparkly things! Fulfill your dreams with the brilliance of our Swarovski crystal jewelry. Anyone outside of Rochester, New York still has until December 15th to place their order and have it arrive in time for the holidays AND you get FREE standard shipping on your entire order as well.

Before checking out, don't forget to visit our sales page -there are many wonderful items, at great prices, to get yourself or to give as a gift. But hurry, once they're gone, they're gone.

Happy Shopping,
