This is what I am busy with these days, adding my jewelry designs to my new shop on Etsy. Caturday readers probably don't know that I have been a jeweler for over thirty years. My mother is a jeweler too. I got really really burned out on it after working really hard with it, making a good living and wholesaling my work across the country, doing trade fairs and craft fairs and having a small retail shop.
Then we started a video business and it was just too much so I was glad to quit. The tools sat in the attic for years. I got them out, set them up, and packed them away again at least three times until, one day, I made a pair of earrings and realized it was fun again. Also, my mother and sister opened a gallery on Cape Cod and I wanted to try to help out by consigning some work. That helped get me going.
It helps that I have a great camera and with Olof's help I can take good photos. Things have changed since the old days of film and slides.
But I don't want to over due it again and lose the fun of it. So no craft fairs and no wholesaling. Just making what I want to make and posting it on line.
