Our Finds today are from these talented artisans:


Chainmaille Choker With Crystal Pendant - I just love this necklace. I hate parting with it. It's made from very shiny aluminum rings. It looks like fine silver but you don't have to polish it and it is far lighter weight for comfort. There is no need to polish it like you would have to with sterling silver. And, the best part is that it's much more affordable than silver.

The design came out of my head and not out of a book or off of a chain maille website so you'll have a one of a kind piece!


Tigerlily Pendant - This is an eyecatching pendant featuring a gorgeous orange tigerlily on a chocolate background.
Each pendant is made from polymer clay which I roll out, cut, bake and sand. The image is transferred to the clay prior to baking. Coated with a thick protective gloss which gives it an amazing glass-like shine. Water resistant but not waterproof. Avoid moisture when possible.
Measures 1.25" across but can be made in any size at all. Just ask! :)
I will have various necklaces available in my shop asap. Black leather cord, black and brown suede as well as silver ballchain.


Best Ever Salad and Pasta Tongs - Made with poplar (a sustainable wood), sanded smooth to perfection and cured with an edible oil (olive.) Glued with Welbond Vegan All-purpose glue.

Recommended to hand wash only. If brushed with olive or vegetable oil every couple months these will be in great condition for years!

Seriously the best salad tong you can imagine. I have tossed every other set I've own. Great for mixing and serving, you will want to give these to all your friends and family =)

Todays finds brings us items from these talented artisans!



Dogwood Blossom and Leaf - fabricated using traditional techniques including engraving, hand piercing, chasing and oxidation. Fabricated using copper. Chain is hand soldered and forged copper with a black oxidized finish that is lightly steel brushed to let the warm glow of the copper show through. Dogwood blossom is hand pierced with lightly engraved petals and oxidized finish.




Basic Leather Journal with Free Monogramming - When I'm crafting journals, I strive to make them beautiful and functional. I try to keep in mind that the most important part of the journal isn't the beautiful cover or the fanciest closure; it's what you put inside that really matters! This basic journal is made with precisely that thought in mind. It is simple, basic, beautiful, and I'm really excited to be presenting it to you!



Rockin Dinosaur in minky fabric -
This listing is for a Rockin Dino Plush - a plesiosaur - to be exact! I created this from a picture a customer sent to me and the dino turned out so cute I thought he should be available to everyone! The eyes are hand sewn in the anime style, he is made of the ultra-soft minky fabric, with teeth made of fleece (so they don't fray!). This Rockin Dino can go in the washing machine and dryer when play time get messy and is super nice to cuddle as well as roar. At 16" long, from his nose to the tip of his tail, he's a great size to play with and tote around.

Connor - Connor, sleeping as only a baby can, is dreaming of being in the arms of his adopted mommy. He loves being held close, cuddled and rocked.Handsome as he is now, Connor began life as a plain, vinyl doll. I was able to transform him into the lifelike baby you see in his photos, using high quality, non-toxic, heat-set oil paints and premium mohair. He was given a jointed body, made especially for Reborns, and his head is attached so it can be moved from side to side.

Tuck on a shelf or hang where you'd like a bit of Christmas color.Sign is made of ½ inch mdf (medex), an exterior grade building material which won't warp or crack due to weather and painting is sealed so this is ready to be hung outside if desired.



Amber Waves of .....Earrings - These handmade lampwork beads are made by another artist yet I have transformed them into the perfect earrings for your fall and winter wardrobe. These 17mm across round discs are a creamy ivory topped with a gorgeous amber glass. The amber is dabbled with sterling silver for a sparlke and shine, like golden sun on the waves.

As we are approaching our 2 month anniversary on November 15th we have so many wonderful new features, a contest and a brand new site sponsored by Handmade FuZion!
Contest Details: Our First FuZion Contest is going amazingly well! We have 2,525 virtual tickets in the pot and we’re just one week into the contest!

New Features:

Google Base – All Items are submitted to Google Base daily! If you list an item on Handmade FuZion before 10:00 am EST it should be listed on Google Base that day.

Store Avatar - You’ve been asking and now we have it. You are able to upload your very own store avatar that will identify you to your community.

Email to Sellers – We’ve couldn’t wait to get this news out to you. Many of you mentioned the lack of information that was sent in an email when a purchase is made. Now you will receive ALL the vital information on your buyer PLUS we’ve added a NOTES TO SELLER box at checkout so they can put in any required variables such as size, color, shape etc that pertains to your item.

BlogSpot – We’ve opened a new blog and have been posting daily. We did this in hopes of driving more traffic to our network. http://HandmadeFuZion.blogspot.com We are featuring our FuZion Finds each day during the holiday season! Your item may be next!

New Domain – Because we’ve both been selling online for years we know the importance of a domain name for your business. Even though we LOVE the name Handmade FuZion, it is a long name and we are aware of that. We purchased an additional domain for you to use called shophf.com. Now you can use this new domain for your labels and business cards as follows: www.shophf.com/stores/yourstore

Layout Change – We have changed the “look/appearance” of Handmade FuZion. It’s nothing major but through the feedback we’ve received we decided to take a softer look with the site. Some of our colors and graphics will change so that your items will be the focus of the site.

Last but certainly not least we have opened a site that is an online directory/search engine strictly for links to handmade venues, blogs, networks and artisans. It is a FREE online directory and will be a great service to the handmade community. Ad space is going quickly so we would like to offer a FREE 1 month advertising slot to the first 6 people who make purchases on Handmade FuZion. You will also receive virtual tickets towards our contest! Make a purchase and send us an email with your 125x125 ad.

Just want to update the contest information here. Our artisans are doing superb with the First Handmade FuZion contest. Just 4 days into it and we have over 2,000 virtual tickets in the pot!!!


Todays fabulous finds are:



"Color Lines" is a series of unique one of a kind vibrant works of art. There are no 2 alike - each one is handmade through a detailed process, created by me.The Color Lines Series is created from a process of repurposing old book pages (circa 1951 in this case), painting multiple layers of paint over each torn page, cutting the painted pages into pieces, and applying individual paper paintings onto a thick piece of black painted wood; then a careful thick coat of clear gloss lacquer makes for a tremendous shine and finish. Pictures just can't do the finished product justice! The thick gloss cover is truly remarkable.




This set of 5 glass discs was created in my studio from Oregon-based Bullseye art glass. Steel blue transparent glass was pressed into 5 discs that overlap on one another when worn, adding other depths of tone to the existing blue glass. I am including silver spacers as shown because I like the way it looks, but the set can also be worn without. The beads are approximately 12mm wide x 18mm long x 10mm at the bail(1/2" x 11/16" x 3/8"). This is a fun set with a minimalist style but a lot of interest!




This listing is for a Custom Little Girl Friend. You can choose the fabric, hair color/style, and skin tone.Currently, I have 4 skin tones to choose. Peach, Mocha, Dark Brown and Golden Peach. Each doll measures 7 inches with the little ball feet.

Just in time for the holidays!!! We wouldn't be doing our talented artisans any justice if we didn't have some of their fabulous items posted on our blog. There is no rhyme or reason to our selections... they are purely random and we hope you will enjoy.


Lets get right to it:


Rutilated Quartz in a Golden Dream - I bought this fantastic big piece of Rutilated Quartz. If you are not familiar with this quartz, It is generally clear with these beautiful golden hair-like strands that run through it. You can see them in the pictures. They are pretty subtle when worn. I made this pendant using 14k goldfilled 20g wire and 28g wire. I used a technique I learned from Eni Oken, which is called a Woven Bezel. It has yards of wire that I wrapped by hand (which you can see in the Backside photo) and then I made the bezel which is kind of like a netting that holds in the Quartz. I've done all of this with my hands, some pliers and wire cutters. It is quite sturdy and made to last for generations....



Splendid Brag Book - This book is made with a chipboard album. The pages all coordinate- fun papers that are striped, polka-dotted, and flowered! There are a few places to write something if you would like. Otherwise, they are ready to add photos! There are 12 pages...so that means 24 total, because both sides are pre finished. The album measures 6" by 4."




Nutty Chocolate Bark - Halloween - Christmas- Multiple Flavors - Peanuts, or the nut of your choice, are mixed into rich Milk Chocolate, and then layered with White (dyed Orange here) Chocolate. This listing is for 1 pound of our nutty Bark! You may choose from the list below, or custom create one of your own.*Peanut Bark (1st picture- dyed White Chocolate used- please specify if you want a different color!)*Rocky Road *Peanut Butter Cream (Milk and White chocolate, Peanut butter- like a Reeses PB cup, but BETTER!)*Nutty Chile Chocolate Bark (you pick the nuts)

We wanted to wait until we had a meeting this morning with our programmers before we posted here, so that is why it's a bit delayed.

There have been many requests from our artisans and we are doing all we can to provide the modifications they have asked for.


-We've decided on a New Layout and appearance.... this will include a brand new home page (nothing fancy) that will enable us to add content to it such as Featured Artist and Contest updates and information.


-We are kicking up our Search feature. That should be ready shortly... just needs some tweaking.


-Email to Sellers - We must agree that the email to a seller when an item sold was a bit lacking in information, so we have now corrected this with a FULLY detailed email to the seller that will include their Name, Address, and the ever important NOTES TO SELLER!!!


-We will be launching our blog contest as well as our First Monthly Handmade FuZion contest tomorrow.

Stay tuned for details.

So glad the election is over. Seems many people had their lives on hold until this moment in time due to it being such a historical event. Hopefully sales and the economy will pick up and things will get somewhat back to normal now... or maybe better than ever.

We have wonderful things planned for our artisans, for new comers and for buyers on Handmade FuZion.

We will be under going a "Make Over" very shortly! Even though it's early in our journey we are stepping up our look and adding some important and fun features very soon.

We will be launching our First Contest very shortly, as soon as we work out all the details. We'll also be sending out our 2 month anniversary email loaded with all the amazing new ideas, adverting and features we've added this past month!

We want to stress that we want to involve our artisans in the development of Handmade FuZion. That is why we have polls and a forum. We always have an open ear and encourage you to sumbit your ideas, talents and marketing strategies to us as they will all be considered.

Ok, back to the grindstone for me. :)

Ok, we feel somewhat obligated to mention here about the election since every blog we visit has a mention.

**Mentioning VOTE**

Really, it is super important and we'll be casting our votes this morning :)

We LOVE contests!!! They are so much fun especially when you have everything to WIN!!! What could be better than building your business, making sales and getting a prize in the end??!!!

We thought our amazing artisans would be thrilled to have a little honest competition and so we had our programmers come up with a Handmade FuZion Contest Feature!

Danielle and I are doing everything in our power to promote, encourage and provide an environment in which our artisans can succeed.

More to come on this exciting new feature, so stay tuned............

Just recently an email went out that said "We just couldn't wait".

We just couldn't wait for our two month anniversary to share these updates with you. Some very important changes have taken place at Handmade FuZion that will enhance your business experience with us!

· New Custom Store Hit Counters (built in) You can now add a hit counter to your store directly at Handmade FuZion without copying code and pasting it in.

· New Store Templates - We prefer the clean lines of the default template but artisans are unique and like to customize the look of their stores. We've added several new store templates for you to choose from.

· Killerstartups.com! We have a review of Handmade FuZion on this site and hope to shortly be on their front page as one of their Killerstartup websites. CLICK HERE.

· Feedback Importer- Last but certainly not least is Handmade FuZion's Feedback Importer! Because we are young and many do not have feedback, this can sometimes be a drawback when a customer is looking to make a purchase. Now you can import your feedback score from 6 other selling sites! When you login to Handmadefusion.com you will see the Import Feedback Link on the left side under the Orange Members Area. Directions for each site's feedback import is on the page. Please carefully follow ALL DIRECTIONS in the order they are given. When it has successfully imported your feedback, you will see a message immediately that says: Congratulations, We have Successfully imported your (name of site) Feedback Score of: 206.

We look forward to a successful and creative journey with all of you.

Sincerely,
Janice & Danielle
