"Just Do It!"

http://www.etsy.com/listing/52401576/long-aqua-golden-chandelier-earrings
That is what my ex-co-worker, Lucia, kept telling me for ages. I told her how much I loved designing and making jewelry. I would say, 'yeah, yeah, I want to sell it someday.' When I left my job in Nyack, NY, I gave her  a pair of earrings I had made. Again, she told me the same thing, "Annie, you should sell these!"

Fast forward 2 months later, I am in Pennsylvania. An old school friend joins Etsy.com and starts selling these adorable, flower headbands for little girls. www.etsy.com/shop/prettylittleposies It was just the little push I needed to start exploring what it would take to set up a little online shop.

ETSY.COM

Etsy.com is a very awesome site for people who are:

A. looking to buy cool, artsy, handmade things or one-of-a-kind gifts.

B. looking to sell your own sweet creations.

It does take a bit of time to set up shop and become familiar with how it works, but once you do, it is super easy. It's super cheap to list your items. Just 20 cents a month for each item.

If you are looking to buy or are browsing, it has tons of different search options. These really come in handy.

Well, don't let me keep you .. check it out yourself! www.etsy.com


THE PURPOSE

So, I hope you will not only enjoy my postings, but also find them useful. I will try and share any tips about jewelry and accessory designing, my blunders (so you can learn from my mishaps :) good links, or anything else I feel the world just HAS to know. ;)
