General Discussion / Curious, how many of you are full-time crafters?
« on: November 27, 2015, 02:04:45 PM »
Hi everyone! :)

I hope you are having a beautiful Friday! Here it is rainy and grey, can't wait to have a bit of snow to put us in the Holidays spirit... !

In any cases, I'm curious and I would like to know how many of you are doing crafts (here or on some other platform) full-time vs who are doing this part-time.
It's clearly a never ending process but I'm not sure anymore if it's possible to do this full-time because of the never-ending addition of new platforms like Amazone handmade and Shopify just to name a few...

I'm really wondering if I'm going to be being able to provide extra income for my family with this method next year, I keep seeing my sales go down despite my best efforts.
So, dear crafter, what about you?  Are you doing this part-time or is it your full time job? What is your opinion on all this?

I hope you have all been very successful this year!
Wishing you a magical holiday season! :)

General Discussion / Need your help : Keep or discontinue?
« on: May 10, 2015, 08:17:36 PM »
Good evening everyone! :)

I hope you all enjoyed a beautiful day with your mums! :)

To make a long story short, I have this Mother of Pearl Earrings collection that I'm wondering what to do with. It hasn't been quite popular online, but it was quite the opposite at my craft shows. I have sold around 30 pairs of these pretties within the last two years. My supplies are almost all out and I'm puzzled between re-ordering some MOP beads and keeping the collection or if I should just put it aside and create a new line.
What do you guys think?

Here is the earrings in question. Thank you so much for your help! :)
And happy mothers day! :)

Business Tips and Help / Blog, need your opinion
« on: March 23, 2014, 11:57:38 AM »
Hi everyone! : )

I wanted to have your opinion on my blog. I have picked up blogging this year after a long absence and I can't seem to get my readers to visit my blog like they used to. I know it takes time, but I've tried to come up with some interesting subjects and changed all the layout to make it more appealing but it doesn't seem to be working very well. Could you please take a look at it and make any suggestions or comments please?

I would really appreciate! Thanks a lot! : )

Jewelry / OOAK Swarovski Chandelier Earrings
« on: January 28, 2014, 04:57:27 PM »
Hi everyone! : )

I wanted to share with you one of my most stunning creation!

Made from Crystal Silver small Swarovski bicones, matched with AB light topaze bicones to repeat the stunning colors of those high quality Czech glass beads.

Those teardrops are covered in two different firepolish on both sides, that shines from yellows, oranges and bright fuschia. They will catch up light and change color at your very move !

Despite their size, they have a certain weight, but they are not too heavy. I have a similar model myself and it does not pull on your ear so much that you gained a quarter of an inch at the end of the day. Their weight is just perfect so they can stay put and dangle all they want!

This piece is one of a kind. Similar models can be made, but this edition is unique !

Lenght : About 3 inches, excluding the hook --- 7.62 cm
Hook : Silver plated, nickel and lead free

Business Tips and Help / Prices… need your opinion
« on: January 20, 2014, 01:06:07 PM »
Good evening everyone : )

It has been a while since I've been in the HA forums. Although, I came back here because I'm seeking your bold opinion pretty please. I sell handmade jewelry on Etsy and I need your input on my prices. Here's my shop : www.kirameku.etsy.com

Most of my jewelry are adjustable rings, so I don't want to charge too much because it is not sterling silver. Although I keep reading about sellers that made the big jump and charged more for their items and all went well. I was wondering if I should do the same.

Thank you so much : )
