Moving on.....

Today I am announcing that there are going to be some changes in the world of Betty Jo Designs.
I am slowly discontinuing my range of brooches and pendants. The production of lino critters and other figurative designs will be phased out and no more will be made ...except in very special cases.
I'm putting these guys out to pasture, as they have served me well and they need a rest!
All the necklace designs will still be for sale at Gleaners Inc. and from Etsy ( stay tuned for new designs coming soon.)
I will also still be manufacturing the Time will Tell Clocks and Flying Ducks and these will be obtainable from Gleaners Inc., my online shop and at selected retailers.
So goodbye owls, babushkas, birdies and friends. Hello necklaces and NEW Lino creations!
If you own a Betty Jo brooch or pendant you can now think of it as a *collectors* item!!!!


  1. I understand the feeling of wanting to change things around and shake things up - especially if you're doing your best to make a living! I wish I could buy one of everything before they get phased out...

  2. Hi Liz. Wow I understand that! I just blogged yesterday about changing things myself. I'm giving up trying to sell things. Well, I will be still selling my designs but that just won't be the focus. Being creative and connecting with others is what matters most to me. So that's what I'll do, and I'll make what I want. Making the same designs, as we both have for years doesn't allow much time for anything new to be created. i know we both have less time that we perhaps once did. So I say YAY for the new and letting go of the old.

  3. I'm a big fan of your work, Liz, and look forward to your new creations. I think I have about 5 or 6 brooches and they are my favourites.

  4. Really impressed! Everything is very, very clear, open is a description of the problem. It contains the information.
