I've always had a fascination with jewelry. When I was a teen, I had more earrings than I could wear in a month. And the more they dangled, the more I had to have them.
I still love jewelry but I found that I was having issues finding what I really wanted in stores.
Either I hated the colors used but loved the design or vice versa.
Or I didn't want to pay 200 bucks for a string of gems.
So I did the only thing I could do... I started making my own.
And I love doing it.
It feels so good to come up with an idea, put my time and energy into it, and see the mental picture come to life.
I opened an Etsy store over a year ago but I didn't keep up with it much. At the time, I didn't even know I could make a FB page for the business.Now, I'm in hit for keeps.
I changed the name because the old one wasn't catchy. It didn't roll off the tongue well enough.
And when I tried coming up with a new name?
Took me a flapping month or more. I am just not that great at naming stuff like that.
I suck at it.
One night, it just sort of pooped into my head.
I love to travel.
I'm a chick.
I design jewelry.
And then came making up a new logo, which actually took less time than I thought it would.
The logo makes me smile, especially since my 'gal' has coffee and a suitcase. It's just me.
Last night, I finally got around to adding items back into the shop.
Since I don't feel like trying to keep up with an additional blog, I figure new items can be featured here on this one. (I tend to be lazy and that makes life easier for me.)
So, here's a peak at what's listed as of this post:
The above earrings and bracelet were made to match butterfly the necklace.
I'll be adding more as soon as I can. I am particularly proud of a pendant that I hand sponge painted with nail polish to match the beads in the necklace. I love it.
