I’ve also got a FREE GIFT of earrings up, that match the FREE necklace I put out last week.  Both are out on the floor in the main room of my store!  Please do check out my REAL LIFE JEWELRY at http://www.jensearcandy.etsy.com – and thank you for supporting me as I transition into my real life jewelry business!

Hey everyone!  Thank you so much for your support!  The emails and IM’s of well wishes have been such a lift to my spirits.  You’ve brought me to tears, and in a good way!!

FREE STUFF:  I am sorting through things and found a couple necklaces I hadn’t released yet.  They are with Cowry shells, one is a choker and the other is a necklace.  I never got around to making matching earrings, maybe I’ll whip some up this week.  I took this quick picture to show you one of them, the other you’ll just have to see when you pick it up for free!

PEARLS:  I overlooked a couple of pearls sets that I never made space for in my new main store when I moved.  The Princess Pearls set and the Graduated Pearls sets are now out, and the fat packs are just L$200 each!!  My pearls sets have always gotten really great reviews, so if you’ve never looked at them before, you need to now!  They are in the second floor in the small room cat-corner to the room you land in.  if that makes sense.  Let me know if you’re lost…. happens to me all the time….

STORE CARDS AND REWARDS POINTS:  Yes you can absolutely still use them – please do!  I have just been giving out store credit for the rewards points as I ran out of steam long ago trying to make exclusive things.  In the largest room, front corner with all the other buisnessy stuff is the kiosk to top off your HUD’s, as well as get those rewards points redeemed for store credit.  Sorry, new rewards points won’t be given out anymore… since the whole operation is shutting down it didn’t make sense to perpetuate the program!

If you didn’t get my previous message and this whole thing about me closing is news to you, please read my previous post on my blog.

Thanks again for all your support and love  – it’s meant the world to me and my family!

much love, Eolande

Eolande’s is going out of business!

My dear customers and friends…

It’s time for me to say goodbye to SL!

The economy here has been too harsh to help support my family like it has in the past, and I need to move on to other means of income, and new artistic outlets.

I’ve been making jewelry in one form or another my whole life.  It started with beading, and then I went on to metals.  Back before I had kids I took some silversmithing and lapidary classes and fell in love, head over heels.  As I had son #1 and then son #2 jewelry making got stuck in the back seat.  Then I found out about Second Life, and I learned that I could make anything I want here, and make an income too!  The freedom to create diamonds and gold out of nothing was thrilling (it still is!)  For five years I’ve been here doing just that, having a great time, and helping to support my family.

Over the past couple of years the economy has died a slow agonizingly painful death.  For me, it’s never picked back up.  I miss many of my friends who used to create alongside me, and being a social creature it’s hard to be alone in my workshop.  I’ve never been a great business person… I don’t have the right connections… gosh lots of things really are what have brought me down to the point where I need to let go.

In the meantime, the opportunity to create and learn has re-entered my life!  At the persistent urgings of my family, I pulled out my collections of beads and findings and have invested in some more goodies and tools.  I’ve got an Etsy wesite up (www.jensearcandy.etsy.com) and have a good selection of reasonably priced and lovingly made earrings!  But I have my sights set bigger – I want to go back and learn more metal smithing.  Since I last took classes, a great new learning center has opened up in my city… and you can take courses, and use the studio space to work solo.  This will enable me to really make jewelry making a career!  I need to take a lot more classes before I can do that solo work though, and that’s where I’m asking for your help.  If you are inspired, to help launch me into my new hobby/career please buy clearance items in my store (everything is 50-75% off), make donations to my tip jar, or even better visit my Etsy site and shop!

My main store in Kanya will remain open selling the clearance items as long as it makes sense to, no promises.  I’m going to sort through all the bits and pieces of unfinished projects and give out some stuff!  I don’t plan to have any stores open in SL after that… I appreciate everyone’s offers of free space, it’s just that I’m ready to close this book.

I have such overwhelming gratitude for every single one of you.  To say “thank you” isn’t even a tip of the iceberg of how I feel.  This was a very difficult decision to make!  You’ve gotten me through some of the hardest times of my life, I’ve made new friends, and grown personally and professionally from my experiences here.

I’m never more than an IM away – and I never ignore anyone!  Please feel free to drop me a message anytime.

Much love, Eolande
