OK, I was saying...this was a collection that I was happy to call mine, from start to finish. It is all hand constructed. I have several pieces packed away. I'm wondering if I should list these items in my Etsy shop OR set up another shop featuring these higher end, one-of-a-kind pieces. Any thoughts? I'm worried that the two collections listed together in the same shop will look disjointed.
The necklace above is also part of that collection. I made a group of pendants/necklaces that I refer as the Amulet collection. Since making these amulet pendants, I have noticed many design houses and jewelers creating "amulet" pieces of their own (in No way am I claiming the birth right to this design....PA-LEASE!). I am considering doing an off-shoot of my Vintage collection to incorporate the buttons and the amulets. I think it would be a great merge.
A BIG thanks to Vintage Junque Revival (http://sweetpeas.motime.com/) for including a great picture of my work in her blog from yesterday's Etsy Maine Team meeting in Rockland. Thank you all for your enthusiasm, words of wisdom, and new friendships. I look forward to many more gatherings!
Lastly, 5 things on I'm craving today (not pregnant, just hungry!):
1. Lindt truffles (dark chocolate)
2. Sushi (except for those big, squishy salmon roe pieces, yuck).
3. Iced tea
4. Soft pretzels with spicy mustard
5. Fried chicken
How about you?
