Well, today is The Day that I’m going to start doing a little bit of promotion for my new website. I have generated a (surprisingly long) email mailing list and have whizzed people a little line to tell them about my site. Some addresses collected from people who have made enquiries at various craft fairs…but mostly it’s just family, extended family, friends, extended friends, colleagues, extended colleagues!
Hopefully this is a good place to start and maybe the word will spread but I have to let you into a secret. ..I’m a little bit nervous about putting myself ‘out there’. Making jewellery has been in my life for quite a long time now…gosh, maybe nearly a decade? But I’ve never really tried to make it anything more than an enjoyable hobby with the odd few sales at craft fairs or jewellery parties or through commissions. I’ve never had the time or the confidence to push it further really but after much encouragement and some very kind words and actions of support I thought it was high time to dip my toe into the world of online selling and see how I got on. There are so many amazing opportunities to sell (and buy) handmade work online that I thought maybe, just maybe someone somewhere might like to buy mine. We shall see!
