The holiday rush is over and we're instating a few changes to Peacock Tres Chic.

The shop is currently run by two of us, Julee and myself, but Julee is in the process of moving her items from Peacock Tres Chic to her own shop, Epoq. We did well together to get our shop off the ground, but it's time for both of us to adapt our own identities now that we know what we're doing =)

She's putting a lot of work into advertising and an exciting new collection, so stop by her shop and show some support =)

Thanks everyone!!

Before vs. After

Playing with photo quality in a program I just learned about called Picnik.

I'm wondering if the picture looks too fake with the modifications. Maybe I took them a little too far lol.

Etsy helpers!

The last couple of days I've been browsing the Etsy forums looking for tips and tricks. Did I find any? Have I ever! My current favorite - 26 Olive Street. Etsy developers created this third party mod that lets you upload a picture, and it searches the Etsy database for images of a similar color pallet. How great is that for finding items for a treasury!?

I uploaded this image
The program analized it ang gave me this color pallette.

And it came up with these current Etsy matches!
This is just the coolest thing ever. Check it out, play with it, have fun.

Read more about the devolopers and program here at the Storque.

We're married and back in business!

Long time no blog!

Both my business partner and I both got married in the last few weeks. She's off on her honeymoon but I'm all settled and back to business and she'll be back and get back in gear soon.

We had a successful sidewalk sale in the downtown Mt. Pleasant, Michigan area the weekend of my wedding. Yes! I worked a sale that weekend and still managed to keep it all together! We were excited to be there and can't wait to see what else the summer brings us.

There's been some great new activity at our shop!!!!!

Some examples;

Come and see the new darkly romantic collection making it's way into the shop daily!!!!!

Long Time!

Both of us here at Peacock Tres Chic are preparing for our weddings, which are only a few weeks away! Needless to say, the internet has been neglected. Our shop is still doing wonderful, though we're not adding as many new things as we'd like to.

We have another show coming up!! On July 23rd and 24th, Peacock Tres chic will be downtown Mt. Pleasant for the annual sidewalk sales and craft show. If you're near Mt. Pleasant, Michigan come by and see us!!

Here's a few new things we have managed to post!

Our first craft show!

Julee and myself, Desiree, owners of Peacock Tres Chic, will be hosting a booth at our first craft show! There's an annual festival in our home town of Shepherd Michigan that transforms the local middle school into a craft show. We applied, hoped, worried... and finally got the call back about getting a spot! It was getting so late, we'd given up hope, not even bothering to prepare. Now we're all in a rush to get things together, brainstorming ideas right and left. It's so exhilarating!

So for April 24 through the 26th, Peacock Tres Chic will be closed, because we'll be taking our full stock to the show with us, along with many things that haven't been listed. Anything that does not sell will be re-listed and perhaps listed for the first time.

If anyone has tips for the first timers, please let us know! And wish us luck!

Gone Steampunk

Exploring the realm of steampunk! So much steampunk jewelry, in my opinion, is harsh bits of mechanics haphazardly thrown together. When I think of steampunk I think of romance and mystery, dreamy black and white films. So I've been exploring the romantic side of steampunk jewelry. Here's the collection so far! You can get it at Peacock Tres Chic.

New sites!

We've expanded to include a new Deviant Art page, this one's for both of our work. Also we have a myspace page, and a flickr!

We each have our own Deviant Art sites, which are Des and Jules. We have journals and personal pictures because it's a gallery. If you're interested in each individual artist please go have a look!

The brand spankin new combined site can be seen here! Stop by and show some love!

Our myspace page is Peacock Tres Chic.

And lastly Flickr!

Two new additions to the shop! I owe my inspirations to Beth Church. My favorite jewelry artist of all time. My work can't come close to matching her skill, but I admire her style so much, I sometimes implement it into my own. See these listings in our shop here.

Newest Additions!

It's all about nature this week!

Check out this adorable little horned owl puffed up in all his finery, complimented brilliantly with deep blues and coppers.

And the spirit of the forest comes to life with this earthen inspired piece, dripping with greens and coppers and shimmering with a life of it's own!

Available at our Etsy shop!
