I'm so excited...I received my first consignment check for half of the jewelry I sent to a Manhattan salon & gallery. It was a total surprise to receive it in the mail...and it was $7 less than the external hard drive I was just leaving the house to buy to house all my business computer backups...perfect!
Last year I designed this first business card you see. It was a blast using www.iprint.com to totally design my own business card, from photos, to fonts to colors. Every detail was chosen by me...and man, I went back
soooo many times between possibilities and loved every hour...I mean, minute of it! Since I've focused so heavily on cupcake jewelry (and confetti & stickers) I thought for the new batch, I'd get some of my cupcake photos on the new cards. these are my Buttercream cupcake earrings.
This time I have cupcakes on the front for RockerJewlz jewelry and a pink handpunched sticker on the back for my paper goods shop, MomsArt on Etsy.
So much fun. I also discovered how simple it is to ship
via Paypal from my computer.
It's WONderful not having to drive up to the post office now. It's only a couple of miles, but hey, that's 45 cents each trip whereas I can now just walk down the street and drop my package in the post office box.
I'm working on a few more sets for the salon/gallery that will include summery pieces as well as some experimental pieces with Lezlie Belanger's amazing black & white beads I've been playing with.
I'm going to be toying with wirelace, hand dyes silk ribbon and charms to do what I've had in my head a long time but wasn't challenging myself to try.
