Exciting News!

19 Dec

Just a few days ago I asked you to “stay tuned” for the Curiosities shop section, well I made the change!

If you visit my etsy shop ( on the left-hand side you will see Shop Sections.

I now have a “Curiosities/ Ocean” AND “Bead/ Supply, etc” shop sections!

You will find a lot more “curiosities,” beads, and vintage jewelry being added!

Speaking of vintage jewelry, please be sure to check out these beauties, as they won’t last long in the shop!

Thank you, deeply and truly!

PS: Please fav my ETSY shop. If you do so and wish to convo me on etsy to let me know you have, I’ll send you a special coupon code!


Curiosities, Beads, and Faving – Oh My!

17 Dec


FAVING: I would be so grateful if you would favorite my shop and add me to your circle if you are an ETSY member! If you message me either via ETSY convo or email and ask me to fav your shop–I happily will! Many thanks!

BEADS: Would also be grateful if you would check out some of my new bead destashes I have added to the shop, here are some direct links:

****I would be more than happy to create a CUSTOM bead destash for you, please contact me!****

CURIOSITIES: The definition of “a curiosity” (n.) is a desire to know or learn or an object that arouses interest.
I have “curiosities” shelves in my house and while they are a conversation piece the crystals, stones, found fossils, shells, dried leaves, found nests, small vintage jars, and more are for me to marvel at! You can really get into collecting objects and making custom shelves, terrariums, etc for your treasures. I will soon be adding a CURIOSITIES SHOP SECTION– please stay tuned! (I will be combining it with my beach treasure shop section).


As always, thank you for reading!

****Happy Holidays****


….an etsy revelation….

7 Dec


Yesterday I crafted 6 “deals” one could take advantage of on the 6th (this was after I promised myself I would stop offering daily coupons, deals, offers, promos, etc).  This is on top of items in the shop being marked down by 30%. No-one chose to take advantage of the deals. I have handmade jewelry being offered at far below what I paid in materials (not taking into account design and crafting time), a vintage fur coat which I value over $100 for $27, and more examples!  It can be frustrating when I spend time brightening the backgrounds of the photos so my items will pop, research what words people are searching for and put them in my listing, and then few folks swing by to check out the item.  And, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t jealous of shops who have 500+ sales (although I am happy for them!).  But, I must, must, must remind myself that in the wonderful world of ETSY one must be patient…there are MANY wonderful choices of items to buy (I know this as an avid ETSY customer too). I wonder if this is ringing any bells to ETSY shop owners?  I want to thank every customer, your patronage is deeply appreciated and thank all my ETSY teammates who share this journey with me!
