Etsy up and running

It's working!  I posted some of my one-of-a-kind pieces and some of my Silver Swirls™ on Etsy and already have had some sales!  There is so much to learn from other artisans on that site.  So much cool stuff and inspiration.  I think I may have found a new home.

See what I've got so far:

Today is for Etsy

It's been a year.  I did re-do the photos on and still had a fairly slow year.  Orders are definitely picking up now as stores realize that people are still shopping.  I like wholesale, having a line of dependable designs, but I must admit that I am not being as creative as I would like, not coming up with new ideas and new work.

I have resisted the idea of a retail website.  But in exploring Etsy, I find that it could not only be good for sales, but good for my creativity.  I see inspiration to create one-of-a-kind pieces, exploring what people like, what I like to make without venturing back into the world of craft fairs.

So today is about taking photos and figuring out how I go about listing on Etsy.  I'll be back to tell you how it went.
