after a nice week of sales, i'm ending my monday with a new item in Etsy!
thistles embroidered into striped fabric! i couldn't stop thinking about my dad when i was making these. his favorite flower. i'm starting a floral fabric earring series, inspired by the Flowers book i bought a few weeks ago. i've learned about so many new beautiful flowers from the book, and have already started my next pair.
i'm trying to build up my product, as i want to visit Subdivision (a boutique in Long Island City where i sell some of my jewelry consignment style) sometime in the next week or so, and bring them some goodies. you can see another pair of earrings i listed this weekend in my Etsy shop. i bought a new puzzle!
so perfect for the autumn season! i made about 9 pairs, and hope to make a few more pairs this week. C suggested that i add some 'metal' for extra durability, and of course, he was right. they look much more professional. i even added some gloss varnish to the back and sides for extra strength! i love these earring hooks. make the earrings interesting.
and in other great news, i ordered some fabric labels from another Etsy seller, JennifersJewels! i sent her an image of my logo, and she printed them out for me! great deal, and the labels are fabulous. i've been recommending her all over the forums! check it out.
i applied my first label to a sweater i sold last week! how exciting. to make things even more interesting, the lady who bought the sweater is from Michigan, and now lives in Brooklyn! so we met for a little brunch and i got to hand deliver the goods. what a treat, to see a reaction from a real live buyer.
happy monday and enjoy your week!
