Small Flower Jewelry



I really have to start preparing for this Holiday season's sale! So far I singed up one holiday market at local church. I had a table last year too. There were not so many people came but it was well organized. I sold about ten items so it was not too bad. This year, I made cute flower earrings for little girls customers. I had a few girls stopped by my table but I didn't have any kids jewelry.

I hope they would please my little customers!

It has been more than a year since I started my shop at Etsy. It seems it is well know even in Japan.
First a couple of months, my customers were only my friends (or friend's friends). I didn't get enough number of views and I was wondering what to do.

One day, my hubby's friend recommended me to use Twitter.
I tried to tweet about my shop or items in my shop a few times a day, my sales finally started going up.
I was simply amazed how social medium worked!

There are just so many shops at Etsy and it is REALY competitive. You can't sell not only having your store open. But there are many power sellers who sell so many items a day. I simply wonder how they are doing?

New Etsy Treasury List

I created a new Treasury List named Pumpkin!

Simple Stick Pearl Necklace

I just listed this simple pearl necklace to my Etsy shop.
I found these beautiful pink pearls during my Japan trip about two years ago.
Because it is so beautiful itself, I didn't want to mix with other glass beads or gemstones.

I came up this super simple minimalist necklace and I really like it.

It is available at my Etsy shop.
