1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New pearl and silver necklace on: August 10, 2005 05:52:27 PM
Last week I made a piece of jewelry for myself (an rarity these days).  I used these green pearls I've had forever, several olive/antique silver cathedral beads, and some beautiful cast bronze dogwood pendants.  The clasp is a sterling silver toggle set with flower detailing.  I'm beyond thrilled with how it turned out and I wear it whenever I can.  It's my precioussssssss *ahem*  anyhoo, on to the pic ;-)

I made these earrings tonight and I am so in love with them.  I feel like a disco queen or something.

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Shipping Internationally on: June 30, 2005 02:31:31 PM
Hey y'all,

I have some questions about shipping internationally from the US.  fyi, I'd be shipping jewelry.

1.  What's the best service you've found (reliability, time, cost)?  usps? fedex? ups? dhl?
2.  If a country prohibits importing your item, are you pretty much nixed?  i.e.  greece does not allow for jewelry to be shipped into the country.  So I'm guessing I'm not allowed to sell jewelry to anyone from greece.

humm, that's about all I can think of.  any help y'all can offer would be greatly appreciated.

4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How long did it take you to start making sales? on: June 17, 2005 11:08:58 AM
I've been thinking about my business and the number of sales I make and I was wondering what everyone elses experience on the subject is.  How long did it take for sales to be a regular thing rather than an ocassional thing.  I was 'up and running' late march, but only made my first sales last month.  Once I started making sales I hoped to get more than I have, but I realize that my pittiful level of advertising and small circle of direct contact has been a definite influence on that.

Once you started getting business, were your clients all new or did you have repeat customers?  I've found that while I get a new customer every now and then, the bulk of my business has been through repeat customers.  It's a consolation to know that my goods are worthy of repeat customers.  I know how valuble they are.

I'm just curious as to others experiences in this subject.  I have nobody in my social group who's in the selling game, so I haven't had many people to talk about this with.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Beadgal designs, my new line of jewelry on: June 06, 2005 02:32:00 PM
I just thought I'd share part of my new line of jewelry with y'all.  I've been slowly working on it for over a year, however, most of the stuff has been made within the last 2-3 months.  I hope you enjoy!
