The April of this year, after a few push from friends and coworker, I re-launched my Etsy Jewelry shop! It has been 2 years since I opened my shop, hoping to let my creativity make some extra bucks for me. But unfortunately in 2012, I got occupied with other things in life that my Etsy shop really fell off my radar.
It has already been two months since I "soft" launched my shop and I've had so many support from friends and coworkers. They keep me going by encouraging and even buying from me! It is very flattering to see that people are willing to pay for my work. I am very thankful for them and they really push me to do what I love to do. As my regular work becomes more stressful, I do find myself relaxing at home with pliers and beautiful Swarovski crystals and now gemstones to stare at and manipulate.
Since April, I re-took the pictures I originally had on the shop, looked over the product description and comp shopped at other Etsy and non Etsy sites. It really helps to have a to-do list for my shop, so I can focus on what's important now to get to what's important after. I still have a lot of work to do but as I checked off one task at a time, I find myself more proud of my AnabelNove shop on Etsy.
Sales is starting off very soft, but that doesn't discourage me because I mark my accomplishment by the views and "favorites" I get. Small stuff is what keeps me going.
Here are some of my works on Etsy.
