Unexpected sales

So, quite unexpectedly three ladies came to my house to see my jewelry and I ended up selling them some very nice pieces, one of them I hadn't even photographed yet. They liked my style and they reserved some stuff, promising to come back on the 15th of April. I guess word of mouth works well, I wonder how to find out about craft markets and the such.

New earrings

My new earrings seem to be more popular than my necklaces, but because they are made with semiprecious stones and freshwater pearls, they have to cost a bit more. I am proud of them!

My dear friend Lung is back in Canada and he was kind enough to lend me his digital camera, so I re-shot my jewelry and added some pics of how the jewelry may look on a person. I am happy with the results and now my Etsy shop looks much much better. The piece above is called "Brilliant Memory" and it is made of a re-purposed rhinestone piece, Czech  crystals, a brass bead, a faux pearl, and two different kinds of chain.

So, today I sold my first piece ever. I sold "night flower" to someone I know, she saw it in my etsy shop but ordered it in person. I am happy my first sale ever wasn't from someone in my family - that would be cheating, kind of.
I hope she enjoys her piece and likes it in person as much as she liked the picture. I guess I have first-sale nervousness. At the end of the day, Hurray for the first sale!

New piece

I am kind of sad I didn't get accepted into the Masters of Interdisciplinary Arts. On the other hand, I made a new piece and my mom really liked it. Again, I think I can photograph it better and I will do so this weekend. This new piece is Green Aurora Borealis rhinestones and faux pearls.

Starting a blog

So it seems that a lot of artists out there have a blog as a way to meet each other, display their work and get feedback. I think I will do the same!
I have been making found object jewelry for a few years now, but only in the past month have I started selling and advertising myself as a jewelry artist. I just started an Etsy shop, and I am unsure about my pictures. If you have any comments, they will be greatly appreciated.
