So, I did it. This evening, I set up an etsy shop in the hopes that I might be able to sell some of this jewelry I'm having such fun making! So far, I've listed one bracelet and five pairs of earrings. I figure it'll be a little test run to see how people respond, and if it takes off, I have lots of other things I can make and post. I know some of you have asked about the Birds Nest pendants, and I promise to get some up there soon. I need to get some more glue to stick those little eggs in first.
I have to admit, I'm biting my fingernails a bit because my one other venture into the world of selling my handmade creations didn't go really well. In fact, it was a colossal flop. Back when I was a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I tried to sell some handstamped cards and gifts at a local craft fair a few times, and I think one of those days I literally only made a dollar. It was disheartening, to say the least, so I was kind of hesitant to go out on a limb and try again with etsy. But, I figure that if nothing sells, I'll keep some of it for myself and give the rest away to my friends and family...I'm sure they won't complain. ;)
Here's a teaser of what I've listed:
