After a lot of thought and some research I decided to offer free shipping to the U.S. and charge only $1.50 shipping on international orders in my online stores! So often I have to guess what shipping on an item will be and more often then not it ends up actually costing less then i charged my customers, I felt terrible about this! I've contacted a few people and asked them if they wanted me to refund the difference to them, they never do and are usually thrilled that I was so honest. So I decided to take the guess work out of it!
I've also added a new listing to my Etsy shop. I had so much response to the Emerald AB 2x Swarovski Necklace and Earring Set that I decided to make a similar necklace without the earrings and see what people think. I took the same filigree connector as the listing above and put the cobalt ab 2x Swarovski bicones along the bottom and then I put a little silver colored heart in the center, then I put the whole thing on a delicate silver plated rolo chain... It is a really pretty set, the iridescent beads change from deep blue to a vibrant purple... You honestly have to see it to believe it!
I liked it so much that it is now incorporated into all of my avatars and banners!
As usual just click on the pictures if you'd like to see the actual listing on Etsy.
