It's been 1 year since my first sale on Etsy


How time flies! I opened my Etsy shop as a way to hopefully earn a little money to support my hobby and be able to write off my related expenses. I had no idea when I made that first sale of the earrings in the photo that I would end up doing this full time. I'm so happy to no longer be working for "the evil little troll" (one of my nicer nicknames for my former boss). It's hard work, long hours every day of the week but I wouldn't trade it for my former job, that's for sure!

I'm so happy for you! You have worked hard to earn this new-found freedom from the "troll". Your jewelry is spectacular and when I can afford to, I hope to own a piece. Keep up the good work and I can hardly wait to see your enameling. I think it will be a beautiful addition to your designs...Elizabeth
