Coupon code for 25% off continues and major shop update on the way

My etsy shop
 is currently undergoing a few major changes, so I decided to continue the coupon code  NEWCAMERASALE until sunday the 29th of June.

You get 25% off for every order over 20€.

 I need to make room for some new bead styles, as you can see in the pictures here.
I am also in the process of rearranging my shop categories, no longer by color but by bead style.

To comply with the new EU regulations and laws about online selling, my shop policies and my shipping options had to change.
From now on, all packages will be send with registered and insured mail, with worldwide online tracking. 
Unfortunately the shipping charges have gone up, but the good news is it is a flatrate shipping fee:
you will only pay shipping for the first item, for all additional set or focal, shipping is free. 

 Free goodie beads and/or samples of new styles will be included  with every order.
The more beads you buy the more extra beads you will get. 
My choice or leave a comment during checkout :-)

If you have any comments or maybe suggestions, please let me know in the comments.

New Camera, revamped kiln and a 25%off Coupon for my etsy shop!

You might have noticed that there have not been any new beads lately. 
This has 2 sad reasons. 
First, my beloved Camera G7 which trustedly has made pictures of my rosaries and beads for 8 years, died a sudden death almost 5 weeks ago. It could be revived for a few days, but then I had to let it go. 

Searching for a new one was quite the adventure, but 10 days ago I got a Canon G15 and the learning curve was unexpectedly steep. 
Tons of new functions I don't need and problems to get the camera to work properly with the settings I need..well I also have a new photo tent and I am still learning....

Then 2 days after my camera, my kiln controller broke down. My kiln is well over 10 years old and there were no easy accessible digital controllers around at that time, at least not in my country. So a good friend built me a digital controller from "scratch" using an old computer, writing the programming himself etc. 
Suddenly the computer would not react anymore. I had to wait for our friend to come and visit us ( he lives almost 700km away) for my kiln to get repaired. 

Now everything is back to working order and the first "new" beads are in the kiln. Pictures to follow soon ;-) 

To make up for this long waiting and to make room for the new beads, I offer an exceptional sale in my etsy shop. You get 25% off every order over 20€ with the coupon code NEWCAMERASALE.
Valid until Sunday 22nd June!
