I think I'll start with "SOLD"

Sold is the subject for the day. Sold what you say? Sold this I reply.
But first a little of the work in progress.



And now the flower, almost finished

and finally the necklace that I sold

I took the advice of a mad snapper about wearing one of my necklaces to work. I actually wore two different ones. Of course on different days, not at the same time. Everyone said how nice but nothing much else. THEN, a couple weeks later one of the girls asked me if I could make a sunflower. I ran home, made one, went back to work and said yes I can make a sunflower. I took her in the necklace to show her and she bought it. Yeah me.

Good for you. You could set up a shop and sell online too. Empress Bee does that and many of us buy her beautiful beads. Here's her link if you want to check it out. BEEds by Bee

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

BeadedTail said...

Congratulations! Hope that is the first step to opening up an Etsy shop so you can sell even more!

Lin said...

Yea YOU, Ann!!! Half of the hard work in selling your wares is having the confidence in yourself and your work. You make LOVELY things!!

Ginny said...

It is beautiful!! I have seen lots of your things that I would like to buy, let me know if you are ever selling and mailing out!! I would have to scroll back in your posts and look at everything, but I just love everything you make!!!

Helen said...

Congrats! Isn't it fun to make a little extra dollars from your hobby! Next step esty.

Ann you make such lovely things you should really sell them online. Perhaps start with a few on this blog and then build up your own online shop - or open up a joint online shop with someone else and perhaps agree to split the profits 50/50 (less hastle than working out who sells what) ... I think you should do marvellously! ... I'll watch this space. :)

Anny said...

YAY! Sold is a nice word :)

Told you so.. you SHOULD have an etsy store :) you are very good.

Grace said...

I've been telling you and telling you to sell some of your creations! I still think taking orders for quilled initials is a slam dunk - quilled initial on a necklace???

snap edit scrap ETSY...I see it already.

I agree the hardest part is the selling. I hate taking money {especially from friends and family} but we need supplies.

yes MadSnapper is a smart cookie

Nessa said...

That's brilliant, Ann - what a result! The pendant looks great, and your photos provide a brilliant tutorial on how to get petals evenly spaced around a flower centre.

Grampy said...

Great job Ann. You are on your way to becoming an entrepreneur. You would probably do well with an etsy shop.

Jen said...
