Why I like my etsy store

My Etsy store is my source for some extra income as well as the satisfaction I get from the responses  from the people who purchase my items.  My handcrafted jewelry is diverse as well as colorful and unique.  When I make a piece of jewelry I imagine who will wear it and where, at her job, a party, or just for fun.  My jewelry covers all sorts of possibilities.  Some are dramatic, some simple, most are brilliantly colorful, some for evening wear, some for casual wear, but all are original designs.  I tend to like the dramatic items best.

Most of my time is spent on the design, putting the beads together to best show off their beauty. I am fortunate to have a variety of sources for unusual beads and materials to make them into a piece of jewelry.  I get most of  my  ideas from the beads themselves.   I have also  helped friends to get started making their own jewelry. This occupation is my pleasure.

Although sales have been slow these past few months it doesn’t stop me from looking for new ideas, new beads, and new ways to promote my Etsy shop.  I list almost all my creations on Pinterest and some of my  creations are also available in Classifiedads.com http://bit.ly/Oh2WzL   and I have an Ebay site for a few.

In a few weeks I will be promoting a new category on Etsy, Baby Booties.  I have crocheted 5 sets and am just waiting for them to be photographed.   I have no camera so I have to wait for my daughter to take the pictures for me.   I hope they will be well received.  I will announce their promotion here.

Please take a look at my Etsy shop.   The items for sale are not just jewelry.  I have vintage items that belonged to older members of my family and decided to pass them on to someone who will appreciate them as much as I did.   In addition I have included some other types of creations, such as a beaded purse, a knitted baby afghan, a hand painted blouse, a vintage hat, a macrame belt and much more.

Have fun with my shop!

Circe’s New Etsy Shop

My daughter, Circe, has begun making jewelry for sale on Etsy.   Her designs are beautiful.  For Christmas wear she has made several earrings and plans to list something every day.  So take a look at Circe’s designs for Christmas.  Visit her shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Madebythesun.

My Daughter’s Latest Endeavor

Today I’ve added to my Etsy shop 6 pieces of jewelry that were made by my daughter, Circe. This is the daughter who is a computer guru and writer and my helper, advisor and support.  She can log into my computer to see that I am up and active, or out doing chores.  This way she knows that I am OK.   If my computer is on, but I am not using it she watches and if she is concerned she will call me.  This is like having a paid support system hanging around my neck that would cost several $$$ a month.

A few months ago she surprised me by getting involved with making jewelry.  Her style is completely different than mine so that when I post her pieces on my Etsy site they are directed toward people who want something totally different.  If you take a look at my Etsy site you will immediately see which ones are her pieces because they are so different.  My etsy shop is at http://www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.  Right now the first 6 items on my list are hers.  That will change as I add items of my own.

You just might find something you like.
