I'm back, for real this time...

I know, it's been a long time since I've been here, but I have a good excuse.  Well maybe not a good excuse, but y'all know how life gets in the way.  You end doing the things you have to do, not the things you want to do. 

I spent some serious time in the studio over the summer, but somehow failed to get into very many shows.  I did just one instead of my usual four.  Pretty discouraging, not being accepted into shows, especially the one you'd been doing for the last 10 years in a row.  I took some time to regroup and rethink my selling strategy, and so here I am, back in the social media arena.  Do I know any more than I did six months ago?  Nope.  But I plan on finding out, and working to get my name out there.

I did just post 19 new items to my etsy store,  I will be adding more tomorrow too.  So far I've just photographed my bracelets and rings, and after I get those all posted I'll be taking some time to shoot the rest of it.  Check back in a week or so and I should have more photos.  Here's a sneak peek...

This is Friendly Plastic and alcohol inks with a brass filigree and a crystal slider accent. 

This is Friendly Plastic with a brass ring base and a Swarovski crystal accent.

I'll upload some more tomorrow.  Maybe I'll give you a sneak peek at some my new patina metal pieces.  I love playing with patina!  It's so much fun!  Take care, I'll be back soon.  I swear I will.
