:: work in progress ::


I have been awol since last week, busy getting jewels ready to go to a new shop (more to come soon) and working on new designs. I got some beautiful new charms and have been watching lots of 'Gothic Noir' films so have a new collection making it's way slowly into the shop, piece by piece.


This is one of my favourites of the moment Gothic Layered Necklace available in my Etsy shop. I have combined a string of wire wrapped vintage pearls with a crystal cut glass beads and gunmetal chain. The charm is a heavy weight skull and cross bones which I love!


I am working on making new designs to get to list something new every day along with revisiting all the things I learned from my Etsy Experiment. I am always finding new things that work and of couse lots that don't, but all to often I move onto another project and forget what helps sell my jewellery. So the time has come to go over what worked and find some more tips and strategies.


I am on the hunt for some gripping night time reading, but not fiction. I am looking for interesting and inspiring business books that can help my small indie business. Any reccomendations?
