STACKABLE BANGLE BRACELETS - THE LATEST CRAZE July 21 2015, 3 Comments
There is a hot new trend out there and it is BANGLE BRACELETS!
Whether worn as a single piece, or stacked with multiple bangles, this is a must have fashion statement for your summer wardrobe. What is very exciting with our bangles is that they are made from durable stainless steel. They are strong, sturdy, and you won't have any plate loss! Inspired by a major manufacturer, but improved upon with our own artistic spin.
WIRE WRAPPED BANGLE WITH MUSHROOM AND GNOME CHARMS
Each of our bangles comes with at least one hand stamped charm, and we can personalize them by adding additional matching character or design charms or even a sparkly crystal to match your birthstone, outfit, or simply just your mood for the day :)
HEART BANGLE WITH RED SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS CRYSTAL BEAD
We offer three different bangle base styles - Wire Wrapped, Infinity, or Heart. The wire wrapped style is completely adjustable - perfect for those that just aren't sure what size they are looking to purchase. The Infinity and Heart styles are a standard size and are not adjustable, but certainly make a statement in their unique design.
When ordering a bangle from us, it will arrive in a cute little Kraft paper gift box - you can use it to store your bracelet, or re-purpose it into a treasure box for other fun items as well.
Great for all ages, and makes the perfect gift!
INFINITY BANGLE WITH HOPE CHARM
We are in the process of making some major renovations to our web page, and are excited about how things are looking. New photos, new listings, and best of all NEW PRODUCT INVENTORY!.
Thank you for following us along our journey of growth. Your Pinterest Pins, Twitter Tweets, Facebook Shares, Instagram Posts, and other versions of supporting our business has been very helpful to us. Continuing to do so is extremely helpful and is very much appreciated.
Watch for more to come...
Enjoy the day!
Time for change July 13 2014, 1 Comment
You asked for it and we have listened!
Just as any business, we are a constant work in progress. It has all been a learning experience, but fortunately we have been able to adapt and grow as things change. Your feedback has gotten us to where we are today, and we are so very thankful for it!
As you stroll through our web site, you will notice a few changes that we have made already.
No longer will you have to wade through page after page of items that have "sold out". We have cleaned things up, and are making sure that only the "available" items are posted. We do not have everything posted yet, but we are actively working on getting all of our inventory loaded onto our web page and available for purchase. Our plan is to set up a gallery that will showcase some of our previous items that have sold, just in case you are looking for inspiration or ideas with a custom order.
We have made a big change with our process in choosing your Swarovski Crystal color. Now instead of having to notate your color choice at checkout, you will have the ability to choose from a drop down menu to make your selection. We have streamlined things a bit...and within this drop down menu you will see 12 color choices - each corresponds with a birthstone month. Of course, we do still have many other colors available, and you can contact us directly to make any special requests.
In an effort to be fair to those with metal sensitivities and allergies, we are working on using stainless steel as much as possible with our clasps, rings, headpins, and other findings. These cause far less skin irritation than the plated connections, and do not show signs of wear of fading. In the coming months we will be offering stainless steel chains as well! We actually do have them now upon request, and will be working on adjusting our listings accordingly. Of course, all of our flatware is still silver plated, along with the flatware we use for our garden spoons and wind chimes.
We had a FANTASTIC time at the Fremont Fair in Seattle Washington this year, and are already looking forward to next year. Thank you to all of you that stopped by our booth to say hello. We made some great new friends too, and were contacted by some excellent prospects for future shows.
As of right now, we do have applications in process for at least one more show this year. We will keep you posted when we have any firm dates set up.
To all of the truckers wives (and girlfriends, husbands, etc) that have shared so much support for our line of trucking related jewelry ...a GREAT BIG THANK YOU! These necklaces, key chains, bracelets, and car mirror adornments have been the hottest selling items in our shop - and we make each and every one with a heart full of love and pride. For all you truckers out there - keep the shiny side up!
Thank you to each and every one of you that has helped us along the way. It has been an adventure, and we are excited to see what the coming months will bring!
Kick start your holiday shopping with this hot seller! October 25 2013, 0 Comments
It's that magical time of year once again! We here at Whispering Metalworks have been busy with Santa's elves getting ready with lots of gifts, goodies, treasures, and surprises for all of your holiday shopping needs.
A few weeks ago we introduced our local fans to our latest creation, which is what we call our "Silver Plated Bell Necklace". We were excited to see how well it was received, and they have quickly turned into one of our hottest sellers. They are flying off the shelves, and our little elves are working night a day to assure that there are plenty of them to go around! Our most popular piece to date has been the daffodil pattern, which in this photo we have adorned with a sparkly yellow Swarovsi crystal.
These bell necklaces have an absolutely amazing sound with a gentle ting ting ting a ling. We are very selective in the flatware that we use, and each piece is hand selected for its shape, style, and design. The clapper (that's the little piece on the inside of the bell that dangles to make the sound) is made from a piece of a fork tine. And on the top, you will find the ever classy Swarovski crystal for a hint of sparkle and color. For the chain we use a silver plated link style necklace which gives it a more sophisticated and elegant look. We run each of them through a professional jewelry polisher, which brings them to a brilliant shine and eliminates any sharp edges.
We really pride ourselves in our ability to take discarded flatware and turn it into these wonderful and unique works of art. Each is truly one of a kind and that is what makes them such a special gift. We have customers from around the world that share their stories with us regarding their purchases ... a gift for a best friend that is moving to a new location far away ... a gift for a co-worker that is leaving for a new job ... a birthday present for a special sister that has just about everything and is difficult to shop for ....a Christmas gift for mom to show her how much she is loved.
Each bell necklace is carefully wrapped in a Kraft brown paper gift box and tied with a raffia bow. We offer free shipping within the United States, and International shipping is available as well. Jewelry that has been hand crafted from re-purposed silver is a hot trend right now, and if you really want to make a statement with your gift giving this year, you can't go wrong with one of these necklaces.
We thank you for supporting your local artisan! Be sure to like and pin anything that you admire ... it helps us to grow as a business and helps others to find that perfect gift for that special someone in their life ♥

WIN A GIFT CERTIFICATE! August 27 2013, 6 Comments
As many of you know, we love to do contests and giveaways. And what better time than the launch of our new web page to do another fun promotion? :) So here we go!
In the past we have offered up a specific item for grabs, such as a wind chime, a garden spoon, or a necklace. But this time the choice will be yours, as we will be giving away store credit to make your own prize choices!
On October 1, 2013 and November 1, 2013 we will have a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to use towards any of the items that we offer... and we will include free shipping within the United States. You can combine it towards multiple items, but it cannot be redeemed for cash. Maybe have a custom hand stamped necklace made, choose multiple garden spoons, or even use it towards the purchase of one of our wind chimes.
On December 1, 2013 we will have our grand prize drawing for a $100 gift certificate, just in time for you to do some of that final Christmas shopping (or to pick up a few treasures for yourself). And again, the free shipping offer within the United States will be an added bonus to this prize. ( We will ship internationally, but you will be responsible for any and all shipping costs)
Here is how it will work:
For every purchase you make through our web page, you will receive five entries into our drawing. There will be no limit on this one! If you have an item you are interested in purchasing, but it has not been listed here on the web page yet simply let us know and we will post it here for you.
For every time you mention www.whisperingmetalworks.com on your blog or on your own web page (proof will be made by your sharing the link here), you will receive three entries into our drawing. There will be no limit on this one either :)
And for every comment you make anywhere on our blog you will receive one entry into our drawing. With this one, we will limit it to ten entries per day.
Names will be carried over each month to be eligible for all three drawings.
Thank you for helping to make the launch of this new web page a success and for participating in this promotion. GOOD LUCK!
*All entries subject to verification. Winner will be chosen at random. All federal, state and local taxes associated with the receipt or use of any prize is solely the responsibility of the winner. We reserve the right to refuse any blog comments that contain offensive or inappropriate material. Winners will be announced here on our web page, and prizes must be claimed within five business days or a new winner will be drawn. Prizes are for merchandise only and cannot be exchanged for cash. This contest is in no way affiliated with facebook, and no participation on facebook is required to enter.
Welcome to our new page! August 26 2013, 0 Comments
YIPPEE! Today is the day that we have been anxiously waiting for ...the launch of our brand new web page. This is a big step for us and our business, and we are excited to share it with all of you. Of course, as with any new transition, there might be a few little tweaks that we need to make, but we have worked hard to make this new shopping experience a smooth one for all of you.
With this new page we do have some exciting new features to announce. First and foremost, we are offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders within the United States! We will still continue to utilize the United States Postal Service and all packages will ship via First Class or Priority mail. You can now order with ease, knowing that you don't have to factor in those pesky shipping costs! Each and every one of you is important to us, and we offer this benefit as a thank you for your continued support.
Many of you have been following us since the very start, and we thank you so very much for your patronage. We have grown by leaps and bounds, and have made some excellent friends along the way. We will be announcing quite a few new changes over the coming weeks, and do hope to make this fun for all of us!
We started out with that very first wind chime made out of a butter dish and some silver plated flatware that our Nana had given us ...straight from her own kitchen. As our confidence grew, we experimented with the metal stamping and expanded from there. Who would have thought that our very first necklace ..."Never stop making wishes"...is still our biggest customer favorite today!
A very special thank you to Chad at http://fervent-media.com/ . Without you we never could have pulled this all together. Your outstanding knowledge and expertise in assisting us with building our web page and addressing the SEO has been an absolute blessing to us :)
Your feedback is what helps us to grow, and we welcome it at any time. Please be sure to follow our blog in the coming days for further announcements ... including a great new contest we are about to begin.
Thank you to each and every one of you...
LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN!
