Describe what you sell.
Handmade limited edition & OOAK jewelry
What is your real life like?
I am a full time Jeweller. I have a husband, daughter, cat, dog & goldfish. I love road trips. Vacations (they don't happen much, as we work a lot), art, drawing, movies, music, scuba, reading and of course my primary love is making & designing my work.oh, and I love great food!
What is your process?
my most favorite technique is sawpiercing. This is reflected in a lot of my work. I work in gold silver, platinum or any metal, it just depends on the piece. Sometimes I dream pieces, other times I set myself challenges
Business Goals and Vision...
I would like to expand my internet business (eg. Etsy & my website) as this is quite a new field for me. I want to sell more of my production work in stores overseas.
How do you market your business?
word of mouth mostly , blogs, some minor advertising and I belong to the fabulous etsymetal group. Do you subscribe to any business related blogs, zines or magazines?
I do only one at the moment as one of them did not work for me, so I'm still looking around for others.
What inspires you?
The ocean, Japanese design, Alchemy, Carl Jung, Matisse, Chopin, Travel, Music, amongst other things.
What are two of your favorite things from your shop?
Chrysanthemum pendant(first picture) & The Jane Johnston Cuff (pictured below)
Am a fan of these places...
