I haven't decided yet whether or not I'll sell this tree pendant. I'm incredibly attached to it. It's the first one I've made.
I have trouble with this sometimes... less now than at the beginning, because making a particular piece will have helped me work through something, or I remember how i felt when I was designing it. I'd like to do more like this one though, but this one took about an hour, so I probably wouldn't focus on them as far as sales go. I need to start repeating my designs so I know I can reproduce them, that's been my concentration for this week. But it's nice to do something just to see if i can. :)
Meet Alex, of alexladydesigns! She has been creating handmade jewelry for years, but is now taking it to the streets starting her own business. Read about the trials, tribulations, and ridiculousness of her daily efforts to bring her jewelry to the masses, and visit her online store to peruse her designs at www.alexladydesigns.etsy.com!
I'm an actor in the NYC area, and I've been selling toner cartridges for far too long. They have been eating my soul.
I have been making jewelry as a hobby for ten years now, but was recently inspired to launch an Etsy website by a friend who pitched me an MLM jewelry company. If I had been tempted to get into a home business to sell someone ELSE'S jewelry, clearly it was time for me to start selling my own creations.
I handcraft jewelry using semiprecious stones, pearls, and the highest quality crystal and glass beads. Every piece is created with attention to detail and an eye for sparkle!
