The May Recap, General Ideas, And Coming Soon...

A couple of late May sales saved the month from being my worst on Etsy, but that late momentum carried over into June with an Etsy trade with fellow EtsyNJ team member CreationsByDanielle. The trade was followed up with 2 sales late this past week (one being my favorite bracelet...a pretty turquoise sea glass creation. The pics didn't do the bracelet justice, as I just couldn't get the lighting right)

My last few sales have been for pieces with soft shades of blue, so I might be back to my craft table later today to make a few new pieces in Teal and Turquoise.

Sea Glass continues to be very hard to locate. Jewelry quality pieces are now selling for a premium and the harder to find colors are rarely found for sale. Authentic sea glass jewelry has become popular in Central and Southern New Jersey, especially in the summer months and trying to keep up my inventory has become a challenge.

I do have a few nice pieces of sea glass ready for creating and hopefully, I can get to those pieces during the week.

Besides the sea glass items that will be added to my Etsy shop soon, I just added a couple new bracelets and have a few pairs of earrings waiting for pictures.

No new shows are planned currently, but I'd love to find a good show for the end of this month or early next month, before concentrating on my Etsy shop and building inventories for the Fall and Winter craft show seasons.

til next time...
