A Sale!

It's time to do a little spring cleaning in my etsy shop. I've put a some items on sale, so I can continue to create a cohesive, beautiful shop. Check it out, the address is:

In the meantime, I have been doing some reading and researching on increasing sales in online venues, doing some planning for the upcoming months, and finishing some scarves that have to go out to Gatherings by the Sea on Cape Cod.

Here's a sample of the scarves I've been making:

Enjoy the rest of your day and have a great weekend!

More pretties for the shop

I'm having so much fun making these little beaded concoctions! It's a change from the mostly chain pieces I have been doing lately. These lovelies are in my etsy shop. Have a peek!

Playing with beads

I've had a hankering to play with beads over the past few days, and that's what I did today. Some finished pieces went out to my stockists, the others will adorn my etsy shop.

I also put up a couple of pairs of my fingerless gloves in my etsy shop. Warm toasties for all you folks still enjoying winter!

Friday afternoon

It's been a productive week overall, though this morning was not as productive as I had hoped. I had to pick up some product from one of my vendors. She asked me if I could drop by her day job place, which isn't too far from where I live. Unfortunately, Google maps was not quite accurate, so I ended up wasting almost the entire morning trying to find it! I still managed to list a couple of things on etsy, so all wasn't lost.

This afternoon I am getting together with my honey and a dear friend of ours who lives in Oklahoma now and is here visiting. We are going to see the movie "Her", with Joaquim Phoenix. Looks pretty interesting. Then a nice dinner at our house afterwards.

Just tried uploading some photos, but the server isn't letting me. Will try again later. Have a great Friday!

Just working

Sometimes I don't blog because I feel I have nothing to say. My days are pretty simple. Make jewelry, photograph jewelry, market jewelry, make shop inquiries. Then somehow manage to keep the house relatively clean and dinner on the table. I love it, but it doesn't seem very exciting. Thankfully I have pictures to show you, so that makes it better. And here you go...

shop revamp

Today has been a very productive day. Spent the morning photographing jewelry to update listings on etsy, then spent the afternoon adjusting photos and switching things around online. Here's a taste of what I have been doing today:

These are pieces I already have, and I will be adding new items in the next few days. 

Other than that, getting together with a dear friend tonight for dinner. She lives out of town, so I don't get to see her very often.Looking forward to catching up and just enjoying her company.

Back from the Polar Vortex

Happy new year! I have finally returned from back east. Got back last Thursday night and have been busy ever since! I've been working on some new jewelry ideas for spring, and I am planning a full revamp of my etsy store. I am also looking at some other online venues as well as new cities and shops. Looking forward to a busy and successful 2014!

The time back east was wonderful. So beautiful, despite the cold temperatures. We got in some visits to the ocean (stayed in the car, though!) and got out and about. Here are a few photos:

I worked quite a bit while I was there and had two trunk shows, as well as sending product out to my shops. Right now I am thinking about my spring line. Here is a sample of what I'm up to:

I will be busy re-photographing my jewelry for the shop over the next several days, I will keep you up on the progress.
