I have officially sold my first piece of handmade jewelry thru my Etsy shop!!!!
I first started my Etsy shop about a month ago but didn't post any completed work for another week or so. One piece to receive most of the attention/ views is the Icy Lilac Cluster Ring. Two of my friends have remarked on it and one recently asked if I could make the ring using olive colored stones.
I set to finding just the right beads and completeled it last week, able to give it her this weekend at the American Craft Council Convention in Baltimore!
I also gifted to her a matching pair of earrings, since this was my first sale I wanted to add a little something special just for her as a thank you.
Abby is also quite the indie crafter herself, she makes great wristlets and handbags. I bought one just last October. Since I'm the constant crafter I use it to tote around my latest yarn project. But the bag and fabric choice is so beautiful I don't mind carrying my knitting in public! You should check out her handbag website!!!
Thanks Abby, hope you enjoy your ring!
