Adding a life event to add to my FB page; taking a selection of jewelry and cards to the small local museum store today. The museum director asked to sell my rings, sea glass jewelry, and collage cards. So of course I accepted!
Each store has its own specialization, different customer type, and style. I am looking forward to tracking and comparing the sales between each over the next 12 months.
This location is pretty exciting because:
1. There is good opportunity in the future for selling other styles of rings I make. Rings stood out to the director because she presently has none in the shop. This means I can play around with making different types of rings and have an avenue to sell them.
2. The sea glass jewelry is sought after. The director also wants sea glass jewelry but at prices like I offer. She had a previous sea glass artisan, but the prices were exorbitant so she no longer carries it. This means I can continue to design and have fun with my stash and have a willing sales outlet. Here's a style I'm working on which fits the bill (sea glass jewelry at an inexpensive price)...
Cobalt Blue on Metal Leaf
Small pieces of natural sea glass are sewn on sheet metal leaf shapes. An interesting combination of man and nature. See more photos and price here
I should feel very satisfied, but still am frustrated!! Why? Attention to Pretty Cheap Jewelry on line has been slow. Ah well, patience patience patience.
Thx for the reads.
