Waiting again....

I am waiting here again....for the smoke alarm guy that the real estate lady is sending round...for the second time. The first time, he never showed up....or called to say he wasn't coming....so I waited all day long....for nothing.

So I would assume today will be no different.

Whilst I am waiting, I have been relisting my old goodies back to my Etsy store
which I picked up from the shop on Saturday morning.

And to be honest, I am really down that nothing much sold. I don't understand why either. Does my stuff suck?? I priced it well (or so I thought). Hubby thinks it was a combination of the location (of shop) and the fact that there was a lot of cheap jewellery (not real silver stuff) in there that I had to compete with.

I guess I won't know and I should get over it. But I am sure those who make jewellery completely understand how I feel right now. I am going to just keep on plodding along and making jewellery, because it makes me happy. And I will try and promote my Etsy store as much as I can. And maybe in the future will try those markets....

Below is a ring I have made recently and have listed to my Etsy Store
Turquoise, Sterling Silver, 9ct Gold in a size 6 US.

And below is a picture of a piece I made last week...but I can't decide whether to keep it completely oxidized, as I think it kinda has a Victorian feel to it this way...or to polish it back?? What do you think??

Alrighty then, I am bored now....

Love that last piece. The stone is kinda paisley shaped. I like it dark, of course, I like everything dark ;)

It was definitely the shop, your jewellery is beautiful ... too good for that shop :). I've never left anything completely oxidized but I really like the dark silver with the red stone!

I know exactly how you feel! Most of the time I feel like that about my Etsy shop. Your work is beautiful, but it's hard to compete with items that might not be as good, but are lower priced. You need to find a nicer gallery maybe? Search out your market, you'll find it!

The people visiting that shop have no taste. Your work is beautiful and dont you forget it.I love the pendant that you asked our advise on.I have left some earrings un polished before and I get good comments all the time. The stone is definatly the focal point and I think it will help it stay that way.So I would not polish. Cheers Deb
