Did you know that Etsy has a new amazing feature called Shop Updates? I just started using it and I’m hooked. I am able to add a picture update and link it to a product in my shop. The picture tells a story about the product or a behind the scenes look at the making of a piece. As most of you know, I love social media and interacting with all of my current and future customers. You can find me on Snapchat, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr…. I think I have an addiction! LOL!
To find the shop updates link (on any Etsy shop) just go to your favorite Etsy shop: www.awljewelry.com and scroll down until you find the link on the left column of the screen.
After clicking on the link you will be directed to the updates page where you can find more info on new products, specials, and what I’m currently working on.
Feel free to stop by every week for new updates on my work.
Etsy Shop Updates
Last month I received an Etsy order for 3 sterling silver stacking rings I designed for my midi ring collection. As always, I took my time to make them just right. I made sure the dollops matched, soldered, sanded, and polished each one until I was satisfied with their look. I then decorated my jewelry boxes with chestnut brown washi tape and topped it off with my sticker logo. I printed and cut each box insert and they were ready to go.
To my surprise, around a week or so after I had shipped the items, I got an awesome review that made my day and I will never forget it. My customer took the time to stage my jewelry and model it for pictures. She wore the midis individually and she also stacked them for a modern twist. She added the pictures to her Pinterest Board and I was mesmerized. You see, not everyone knows how much time, effort, dedication, and love I put into every single item I make. She took pictures of the packaging as well as the jewelry. Ah, if only she lived in Miami… she could be my hand model! Thank you Vicky for this amazing gesture!
Always with love,

New paisley-inspired bracelet made in sterling silver. It is a one of a kind design and it is for sale now on my etsy shop.
Here are some pictures (taken with my iPhone) that show you how I made my latest jewelry set. The pictures demonstrate how I made the earrings first, and then the ring. The fabrication process required many steps and here I show you the most important ones.
The order of pictures goes from left to right.
Oh, my Jewelry Photographer is out of town which means that the final earrings pic will come soon! For now, enjoy the process and the finished ring pic professionally shot by Pixeltoaster Studios!
