My Etsy Adventure !!

I opened my little shop on Etsy in 2009 and although I had been in retail for many years this was very different from anything I had ever done and I have to admit a little scary at first. It wasn't long before I received my first order and I couldn't believe my eyes a custom order from Australia !! I was so new and trying to learn the ropes I didn't even know what to charge for shipping I had planned to only ship in the U.S. to start. I was so excited I didn't know what to do first and I certainly wasn't going to decline a sale so I went to work finding out the cost of shipping to Australia and communicated with my customer through Etsy convo to see exactly what they wanted. After a few conversations a custom order was made and shipped off to Australia without a glich. I was happy and so was my customer.

I work from home and have converted a spare bedroom into my work area. I love working with gemstones and buy as many supplies as I can here on Etsy to support small business. All my jewelry is designed and handmade by me. I also take my own photos I am not a photographer but I do the best I can.

I actually opened a bead shop last January so I have spread my wings and opened a second shop. They keep me pretty busy soon I will have to retire from retirement.

Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoyed reading my story !!
