Finally an Etsy sale!


Over the past few weeks Barb and I have worked our fingers to the bone getting items photographed and uploaded to Etsy and hoping that our inventory, now about 75 pieces, would give us at least 1 sale to get the ball rolling.

Well, the other day Barb went on our account and, yes, finally a sale!

The item is above and is described as follows:

"Description
An icy light blue and black curved glass bead is surrounded by kyanite rounds, two 10mm black vintage glass faceted beads, 6mm jet Swarovski rounds and 4mm sterling beads. The clasp is sterling silver - a wonderful cutout dragonfly. This bracelet is one of a kind and so is the person who wears it.

The bracelet measures 7" and can be resized - just convo me. Not quite what you had in mind? Just convo me and we can design what YOU want. We love to make other people's dreams come true.
Sold on Aug 29, 2008"

Hopefully this will be the start of some successes for us on Etsy.

As I've written before Barb is buying far more materials for making necklaces, earrings and bracelets in hopes that our several shows, Etsy, etc. will give us a reasonable income.....to buy more pretties!

Happy Labor Day to those of you who celebrate the 3 day weekend holiday.

Hi Barb and Ken! The quality of your photos has improved immensely over the past 3 months and I'm so pleased about your sale! Keep up the great work you two and post more listings. Believe it or not, folks tend to feel better about purchasing from a bigger store, so continue to pump up those listings. And continue to blog. It will pay off in the long run! Congratulations...
