Continuing to add to my shop

Well, I am continuing to add inventory to my shop. The question is, when do I stop and start advertising? When is enough, enough? Or, do I have too much in there already? I guess I'll finish this batch of necklaces and earrings and do some advertising and see what happens and then decide what I should do next.

I did decide to add carat weight to some of the pendants where I could find out what they were. I had to use a size to carat converter; which isn't very accurate, but since the pieces are made and I'm not going to remove the stones and I don't have a carat weighing machine - that's the best I can do. That means more edits, but so be it!
I love these pieces, they are going to be so hard to sell.

Wow, its been a long time

I didn't realize how long its been since I've written in my blog. I've been busy trying to get more jewelry on my website, but it hard because of my CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and Fibromyalgia.

I decided no deadlines, because that just puts most stress on me and stress justs makes my CFS and Fibromyalgia worse. Well, its late, I must get some sleep, more later.

I wanted to have my grand opening for my web store on July 1st, but so many thing went wrong. It was very frustrating for me. Etsy was very slow and would not take my jewelry pictures; my Chronic Fatigue was flaring up, so I was hurting and was very tired; and the list goes on.
So, my first post is a downer, not a good start to my blog. So, I figure, I have nowhere to go but up from here! I'll just take it a day at a time, as trite as it sounds and eventually things will work out as they should.

To make sure there is something good here, there is a picture of a model wearing a custom three piece set made for a formal event. It consists of a triple necklace, five strand bracelet and double drop earrings.

So, its back to the salt mines to enter more of my jewelry into my store on Etsy.
I really enjoy designing and making jewelry more than marketing it; but to sell, I must market.... Good night and have a good and safe Fourth of July!
