My First Sale

I had my first sale today! Now granted it was my great friend who bought it, but I couldn’t be happier. It feels very good to know that a piece I spent a lot of time on will get the love and care it deserves. And as a special present to this friend who is supporting me, I have something awesome in the works.

My First Post

I am following the paths of my wise friends before me and creating a website to help promote my Etsy store. I am having so much fun making jewelry, and every piece is handmade starting with a scrap of metal or copper ring shaped to fit whatever my imagination can come up with.

I started making my jewelry after a dear friend of mine showed me how to use a soldering tool. Since then I have gone hog-wild and haven't been able to stop my creative juices from flowing. I have actually had to put a notebook by my bedside to hurry and jot down ideas, otherwise I would be kept up every night hoping I wouldn't forget it in the morning. This notebook has helped me sleep, and also helped me to remember wonderful ideas that shape into the pieces I am selling on Etsy.

I hope that the people who buy my jewelry will love it as much as I loved making it and hopefully it will become their signature piece that they wear with almost everything because that is what they have been designed to do. Each piece has a hint of vintage and a little splash of me.
