Late December I found out about this awesome site, etsy. Don't know if my head has been in the sand for the last couple of years, because etsy has been around for a while, but I just found out about it. I opened up my store, beadifulworld.etsy.com, and have been anxiously waiting to see what happens. I finally made my first etsy sale !! Recently I went to a bead show and found some bea-u-tiful Blue Crazy Lace Agate buttons, so I whipped up an entire sterling silver ensemble using the Blue Agate, which I offset with Swarovski Caribbean Blue Opal AB Bicones, Swarovski round Smoked Topaz and Pink Opal Nuggets. The bracelet sold, which still leaves me with the necklace and earrings. I'm so excited to finally have made a sale since January is traditionally a slow months for retail sales, plus there are just tons of awesome jewelry designers on etsy so the competition is TOUGH!
