Well, we all have to start somewhere...


Ahhh - so here it is - my very first entry in my very first blog. This is sooo exciting and just a little bit intimidating. But I have been playing around with the idea of a blog for quite sometime and have finally decided to take the plunge.

This is going to be primarily a business blog - although don't be surprised if personal comments end up here as well. I do believe in mixing business and pleasure so writing in my blog about everyday happenings as well as business only makes sense to me.

I have 2 exciting things to actually write about today in regards to my business:

First: I actually had an online sale last night - the first one I have had in about 8 months! (I was offline for over 6 of those months.) I sold the set shown above which is one of my favorite pieces that I have created to this point. I am soooo happy about this. I am trying so hard to get the word out about my jewelery. For any of you thinking of going into business online, let me just tell you that for the huge potential audience that you have with the internet - it is soooo hard to get the word out. I mean you can always pay advertising fees - but then the question is where do you advertise to get the most potential business for your website and is it actually affordable? I have found both of these issues to be a problem.
My second bit of news is that one of my friends listed a picture of one of my bracelets on her website. My piece is the second one down - a simple chain work piece, but it is one of my favorite bracelets I have made as it is so much fun! I am in the process of making another one of these bracelets and hope to have it completed soon. For those of you out there who do chain work - she is just getting her web site going and she has some lovely things - including top quality jump rings in sterling silver which is great for chain mail works. Take a look around her site: http://www.wired-works.com/ Her name is Beth - tell her that I sent you if you decide to place an order!
Anyways - that's about all for now. Thanks for stopping by to take a look and read about what has been going on with me!
