Online Jewelry

Do you love the unique clothing, crafts, home goods, baby items, and sheer variety of awesome items on Etsy? I know I do, but sometimes the prices for these cool items can be a little steep for my liking. Fortunately, with the arrival of daily boutique deal sites, we are able to find many similar items for a fraction of the cost..sometimes at 90% or more off retail. In fact, a lot of sellers on Etsy also sell on the boutique sites at discounted prices! Now we can find, and afford, a world of treasures! My suggestion is to get in with a good Etsy Vintage team to help showcase and promote your Etsy items. Teams help promote one another’s items, network together, make treasuries (a way to showcase and promote items), blog, twitter, and Facebook each other’s wares.

I took her costume jewelry and divided it up to make five bracelets, one for each granddaughter, and gave these finished bracelets to them as a memorial of Grandma and a gift from her. From there, I continued making jewelry, teaching my daughters, and selling online. Now, when you purchase (and sometimes they are free) a tutorial on the web, the artist will often write that you may make as many of the item as you wish. They will tell you that you can give them away or sell them as long as you put in a blurb about where the design came from. And that’s OK, go ahead and make as many of the jewelry item as you’d like, after all, you have the artists’ permission. Loved the quote from St Thomas Acquinas, and I did not know about Turner and the red splodge. Was it the Fighting Temeraire painting by any chance. The dark red buoy always looked like an afterthought to me, and abit out of place compared to the serene beauty of the rest of the painting.

That being said, I think this product has a lot of potential. Tea and accessories can be touted as perfect Mother’s Day and birthday gifts, and these parties would be fun to throw and attend during the cold, blustery winter months post-Christmas when most direct-sales companies are probably experiencing a lull in sales. Plus, on the flip-side of coffee-madness, there’s a ton of devout tea-drinkers and it comes with the quiet promise of relaxation and me-time – a mom’s greatest fantasy. She also …
