Photography Improvements

I am going to reshoot many of my Etsy photographs today. I am happy with the quality and imagery of most of my recent listings. However, there is always room for improvement, and I am willing to try again.

I am going to use a different background. Be sure to check back to see how it went.

Reader Feedback

Here is an opportunity for you to tell me what YOU like.

What style of jewelry do you gravitate towards...chunky, bold, classic, chains, colorful, neutral?

I love bright bold colors, but am open to including a little variety in my Etsy shop.
Please leave your comments on this post.

p.s. my shop includes a little of everything mentioned :)

Positive Thinking

I'm doing good today. I went to a job fair, and also posted two new items to Etsy.
A gorgeous nautical necklace with polished shells and aquamarine glass, and beautiful matte purple earrings.

Yes, I Made A Sale!

I made a sale yesterday! After my last post, this was a much needed encouragement. I am sending it off today.

I hope this is a sign of a bright Etsy future.

A Little Down

I signed in to Etsy today to find items awaiting feedback - only these are items I Purchased, not Sold. I am currently still out of work, and would like some acknowledgment that what I am creating is worth my time.

I originally began making jewelry as a creative endeavor outside of my day-to-day routine. I loved seeing my imagination take shape in the form of a necklace or bracelet. I have the same feeling now. However, it is laced with other thoughts: Will this sell? Am I wasting my time? Do I continue to spend money that I can't afford to?

I submitted another job application yesterday. I want to begin my career, post B.A. I desire a job that compensates me for my degree, and has some creativity.

For now, I buy beads, create jewelry, and hope that I make a sale today.

New Blog Feature

I am officially featured in my second blog! See the interview here at:

Support is Awesome

Thank you to my two new followers. It's so exciting to know I am reaching people (even a few wonderful individuals!)

I am proud of the "loot" that I bought at the recent bead fair. I held back (not easy), but came out with some really great things. I just added a new necklace in my Etsy shop, made with Gorgeous green howlite from the bead fair.

I am waiting for more toggles in the mail. Once I receive those, you will see a lot more in my Etsy shop.
