Featured in an Etsy Treasury!

Yesterday I joined an Etsy team called All Handmade by Me which is only for artists who sell real handmade items and not mass produced ones on Etsy. It is nice because you have to apply to it and they make sure your creations are indeed handmade by you. After you have been approved you will be able to display the handmade badge on your shop; I put mine in my about page. Not everyone gets approved (awesome!) and it separates true handmade shops from the masses which Etsy is not controlling (or caring about) anymore.

Anyways, today I was featured in a treasury by a fellow teammate, and made my day! Feel free to visit the treasury curated by Sheena from Koolnecks Accessories and the team too! My piece is the Blue Magnesite Bead Necklace.

Always With Love,

My First Jewelry Party!

I am so happy, I did my first “show”! It may seem small for some of you (and me), but it was a complete hit!  I guess the fact that it was exclusively held for family members ensured its success. Ha, ha!  🙂

I exhibited some old pieces as well as some new creations, and they were all greatly received. My most popular item of the day was my personalized “mom” necklace.  I got so many orders for those I could barely keep up! I’m so happy the ladies loved it!

I also tested my Square Card reader for the first time and boy, that thing is awesome! Some of my aunts and cousins couldn’t believe I accepted credit cards on the spot! I was also very pleased with its ease of use and how fast the money was deposited in my account. If you are thinking of getting one, you should!

Right now I’m working on creating more pieces for a bigger event I have in mind for November. I will keep you updated as new details develop. After the success of my first party, I’ve been bitten by the craft show bug so stay tuned for where I will be next!

Love,

Adriana
