WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO OPEN AN ETSY SHOP?

I have been making jewelry for over 12 years.  I had only sold my pieces at boutiques and craft shows.  I did have my own website up until last year, but getting traffic to it was almost impossible.  Over the past holiday season, I met up with a former boutique owner that used to carry my jewelry.  She and I got to talking about Etsy and how we were both planning to open a shop on Etsy.  So, here I am with my very own shop on Etsy.  I have since closed down my other website.

WHAT KIND OF ITEMS DO YOU SELL IN YOUR ETSY SHOP?

I design and make handcrafted jewelry.  My favorite metal to use is silver.  I like to combine natural stone and glass beads in my pieces.  I would describe my jewelry as “Modern”.

WHAT IS THE NAME AND LINK TO YOUR FAVORITE ETSY SHOP (OTHER THAN YOUR OWN) ?

While hunting for items to put in a treasury I was making (I still have not been able to snag one), I came across this wonderful artist named, Melissa Moss.  She creates awesome paintings, many of which have a leaf or tree theme.  (A girl with the same love of leaves as me).  Check out her beautiful artwork.  One of these days when I am finally able to get a treasury, she will be featured.
