The Bead Fair is HERE!!

Today is the Bead Fair! I've been waiting for this for several weeks now. I am ready with my list (colors, gemstones, components), a permanent marker (to note the product and price) and my walking shoes. I'll pull some cash out, and that is my limit!

I went to my first bead fair a few months ago, and it was pretty overwhelming. There were two tents (and when I say tent, I mean huge silo) full of vendors. And not one of them was open to negotiation. Well, I'm a discerning shopper anyway, and if I really want something I'll pay for it. If I don't even get a buck off for other stuff, I'll pass. My dollar needs to work for me!

Keep an eye out for BRAND NEW items in my Etsy shop over the next few weeks. Remember, all of my jewelry is One Of A Kind or Limited Edition.

Quit Your Day Job

I read another Quit Your Day Job article on Etsy. It featured a jewelry artist. I am included in the many out of work, and would love to do this full time . We'll see how it goes.

Trying To Figure Out Treasury Titles

Yesterday night I created a Treasury titled "Vintage + Modern = HAPPY". I think it's a title that gives a clue to what's in store, but leaves room for curiousity (and clicks).

It has received 13 individual views so far, half as much as some Treasuries the same "age". What is in a Treasury title that will make you click or pass?
