I am a life long Alaskan living the good life in our beautiful mountain state which inspires me daily to create beautiful pieces of jewelry art!
I have been creating handmade items since I was a very little girl. First with sewing which my wonderful grandmother taught me at the age of 8 years.
Over the years I painted, sculpted and made 100's of quilts, but I did not find my true artistic passion until just 2 years ago, from the first moment I created that first piece of jewelry and like every other artisan I know, I was hooked!
I started my own business by first selling at shows and from my home, then created my own web-site a year ago. The beginning of this year I joined Etsy and for some reason I still have not sold one piece of jewelry, very disheartening since I never have a problem selling other wise. I am constantly posting my items on Facebook and Twitter. Have re-taken photos, update my shop constantly, so still not sure why no sales except there is a lot of competition for sure in this field.
I have also been out showing my jewelry to boutiques and galleries and now have some in 3 shops.
I sure would like to know the secret of selling on Etsy, help!!!
I love looking at all the purses, hand bags and jewelry the most!
