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!
