Going to do it!

Sell on Etsy that is!
Well try it out anyways. Think I am going to give myself 6 months...that should be long enough to see if I am going to have any kind of chance with selling my jewelry there.

Hubby has put the pressure on...I need to start selling what I have made before I make much more. I understand what he's saying. And I really don't want this fab new hobby to diminish into nothing and let all my new found skills become redundant and the only way to get more skilled and learn more is to create more. And the only way I can create more or rather can afford to create more, is to sell and use those profits to fund new materials...blah blah all know the drill.

To the right is a picture of a Blue Web Jasper Heart pendant(if I recall correctly). I originally made it for myself last week (I always make it for myself to begin with lol) but my hubs has talked me into trying to sell it on. So I will. It's a nice weighty piece (the kind I love). Just gotta give it the final touch up (clean) and it's good to go. Though I have no idea what price I should ask for it. That I think is going to be one of my obstacles. Trying to get the price just right for buyers. Go too low and they'll think it's crap...go to high and that'll just scare em right off!

Anywho...I have already got an account there and a banner and business cards and so on and so forth. All I have to do is make some more pieces and then slowly list away..........
