My Story

I'm a simple girl from a small town in Ohio living in a beautiful coastal town in Florida. I'm married to my very supportive high school sweetheart and we have a beautiful cat, Hula. I studied interior design in college and after several career reincarnations I am now here, living the unexpected life of jewelry designer and absolutely LOVING it!!! This blog chronicals my journey through this wild and exhilarating and sometimes exasperating world of jewelry making from idea to fruition!

Update: Here we are 6 years later and I'm very happy to report that things are going well! I have a thriving shop on Etsy, my own website, I show occasionally at local art/craft shows, and my work is now available at Old Florida Gallery and Outdoor Center in Englewood FL! So follow along... it's getting very interesting!

This week...

This has been an interesting week to say the least.  It's had its highs and its lows as any other and I've learned a few new things.  Today, for example, I came across another Etsy seller boasting 250 sales in 2 months and while I am proud to keep company with such an entrepreneur I cannot for the life of me understand how!?!  Just as in other facets of business, it doesn't seem to matter what your product is or how great the quality, no, it's all about the marketing!  I have to say this is very disheartening : (  And someone I thought was in my corner it turns out is not.  I was able to help someone else out though, so score one for me.  Here's to hoping this is a better week overall!  Cheers!
