It's a Giveaway!

Today I made my first sale in my Etsy store! A woman from the UK bought a piece for her upcoming wedding. To celebrate the event I will have my first giveaway.

June has been an exciting month of new ventures! My new year's resolution was to try to learn how to do more on the computer (luckily, I didn't quantify this, so I really can learn something small and not fail at the resolution part) and it took until June to bring things together. I think I am still behind the learning curve on this one, but I have to admit it brought some exciting new opportunities and customers to my jewelry and crafting business. I started this blog thanks to Kate's help (she is putting that marketing degree to good use) and also started a Facebook page and an Etsy store.

For those of you new to Etsy, it's great! It's an online community to buy and sell all things homemade! Kind of an e-Bay for crafters. Thanks to Kristin helping me with the pictures (that resolution might have to wait for next year) I listed a few things and hooray for the first sale!

Ok, now for the good news ... I want to introduce you to my Etsy store, so anyone who checks it out can get registered for a free piece of jewelry! See the picture of what you can win at the bottom of the page .... . Just use the link on the right to head to my Etsy store, check out what I have there and come back and let me know what you think (use the comment section at the bottom of this post)! That's it! On July 2 (my almost one month anniversary of the new store), I will pick a random winner and send them their prize!


  1. Hello. I couldn't make it to Meredith's party last night, but I wanted to stop by your blog to see your things. I visited your Etsy store, too. I really like the pieces you have displayed. Isn't it fun be able to be creative and share it with everyone? Good luck on future sales through Etsy, and I hope I have another opportunity to go to a home show soon.

  2. I always like the vintage pieces best :) The pendant is gorgeous!

  3. What a great idea to go online. I love all of your pieces you show, especially your bracelets.

  4. Hi Beth,
    I think your Etsy store will give online viewers a quick glimpse of your creativity and how they can customize to their needs. I love the pieces!

  5. I no longer need that personal shopper....Jan..there is the Etsy store!!
    I love coin pearls but the ice cube earings and the eclectic bracelet are wonderful. It has been so fun watching your business bloom...your creativity is amazing.
