Just Stopping In...

I am headed back out of town tonight, so I thought I would stop in and show you what I've been working on. I hope you enjoy.

Very Dainty... {$24} 16" chain with a pea sized tag monogrammed with 3 letters, it could also fit a 4 letter word, "love." Paired with a hand wrapped smokey-colored bead {optional}
Yes, I made something for myself... I used a large creme pearl and I must say I love how it turned out... {$34}

Said with Love... {$32} Ok, so I made another... Haha... I am in love with these new hearts that I just got in, they are way too much fun. I actually did 2 of these necklaces for a friends daughters, she wanted to get them something fun but age appropriate. I thought this would be just right...

"It's not the journey, It's the destination..." {$62} So, yes, I know this is backwards, I am told it is supposed to say, "It's not the destination, It's the journey..." I like it both ways. If you like this necklace and prefer it the other way I will make it the other way as well. The disc is 1.5 inches strung on a 24" satellite chain... I actually think this might be my most favorite creation....
I am excited to show you what I have been up to after the first of the year, I have been taking some classes to broaden my knowledge for jewelry and also learn some new techniques. I have had a really fun time and I am very excited, so stay tuned...

I hope Christmas was as fabulous for you all as it was for me. I am looking forward to the new year!

{I know you have been waiting}

Ok, so it is not that I haven't made any jewelry lately it is that I have not had time to stop and take pictures before sealing them up and shipping them off. I did not even have the time today, my great friend Angie was kind enough to help me out, Thanks Angie...
Here is my last Christmas order to go out for the season:
{Trio Chunky $42.00, $6.00 extra to add the pearl}
The heart is my new shape, I love it and it looks adorable. I have one more design that I made that I will be posting tomorrow that I used on the heart... Adorable.
{Simply Me Monogrammed Chunky $28, $6 to add the pearl}
These "Chunky Bracelets" were a HUGE hit this season. On my last order I ordered a few extra so I do not feel so stranded next time.... I have 3 available in stock if you do not mind and after Christmas arrival.

{Simply Me Monogrammed Chunky, $28.00, $6 to add the pearl}
Single Initial Monogram

{Grammy & Me $52.00}
Such a favorite, this is the "Mommy Tag" turned "Grandma" tag necklace. I think it turned out nicely, hope you like them Angela!

{$28.00 and $6.00 to add the pearl}
This one wins for the cutest story. Earlier in the month my neighbor's son ordered a necklace for his girlfriend for her birthday, it was so cute. Well, last night when I got home I was checking the mail when the neighbors son and his buddy approached me, I was for sure they were looking for my husband to help them fix their bike or something. That was not the case, his friend wanted to order a necklace for his girlfriend for Christmas. He was so funny while he picked out the shape he wanted and decided what to put on it. It says, "Dp & PP 11.21.2008" I think this is the day they started "going out". Ahhh, sweet young love, to be this excited about making a necklace for your girlfriend is just so cute!

I love Angie's Wordful Wednesday. Head on over and check out the tons of other people that do too....

Holidays = Love

Curt + Leslee = Love
It has been hard to find time for each other this year over the Holidays. We have a crazy schedule as a family and this year I threw a jewelry business into the mix. For some reason, even though I know our schedules are more jammed than ever before, it has made it easier to find those "special moments" to spend together. I am so thankful that this guy is always there to fit in a few snuggles.

If you have an order that you have not received yet, it is shipping in the morning (12/18/2008). As of today I will not be taking any more orders until BLACK FRIDAY! Your orders have been a blessing to my little business and my family!

See you back here on the 26th for some MAJOR deals....

PS- If you give or get a necklace or bracelet for Christmas from Kiki & Lele I would love to have a picture of your gift and its new recipient (even if you bought it for yourself)... I am going to make a post about all of the holiday gifts that were ordered from Kiki & Lele sometime after Christmas.

{2 More Days}

Wow, I can hardly believe it.... Only {2} more days to order to make sure your gift(s) makes it on time.... If you have to wait until the end of the week, that is fine, but I cannot promise your gift(s) will make it under the tree.... So, if you are ordering for Grandma or Aunt Sara, you had better get a move on it...

Christmas orders have had me busy, running here and there, I feel like one of Santa's Elf's! Heck, I practically am and elf!
I just sit up in my little workshop {office} for hours every night making Christmas Wishes come true!

Are these on your list??? If so, shoot me over and e-mail and I will get to work....

{A New Chapter}

December 1st will mark a new chapter for Kiki & Lele. This little company was started by Leslee and I for so many reasons that were and are near and dear to our hearts. In the nine months that we have been in business together we have accomplished what we set out to do and in the process learned so much. For that I will forever be grateful.

As of December 1st I will no longer be a part of Kiki & Lele. It was a hard decision for me to make, however, it is the right decision for me and my busy family at this time. I know Leslee will continue with the mission that we set out to do: to create jewelry that makes people feel good and to be able to give back.

K & L has been able to donate to schools in our area this year to help raise money which we are very proud of. This week we are partnering with MckMama to contribute to a really wonderful cause. Leslee will have all of the details for you very soon so stay tuned!

Thank you to all of our {fabulous} customers for all of your support! I really appreciate you helping us be successful this year! Happy Holidays!

More Out The Door....

I know you can forgive me for my poor photography skills... It was cold out side today and light at the front door was limited....

This one is a special story that touched my heart... I cannot tell you because I feel like I would be exploiting one fellow Mom's Story... Just know, it is a special bracelet for a special Mom...

This is the first time we have offered a ball chain bracelet. It is dainty, and fun... With three charms, it has a nice little jingle to it when it is on your arm...

{$33.oo} 7" long, this is the only length we can get

This was another "custom" order. It took about 1.5 weeks back and forth on the e-mail, but it was so worth it... This is the first piece we have made with a bar shape... I totally love it... The font style on these charms is the smallest one we offer...

{$42.00} Includes 3 charms and one pearl... E-mail us if you are interested in adding or taking away charms for a price adjustment.

Have a great weekend...


You Better Watch Out, You Better Not Cry....

You better not pout, I'm tellin' you why..........

Santa Clause is coming to town......

If you are not convinced that this cute little guy is one of Santa's Helpers, I don't know what would make you believe....

FYI- Just a reminder that December 10th is your last day to order for Christmas to Guarantee your gift on-time.... You can order after that , but you will have to pay rush shipping...
