After years of working primarily with fused glass, my creative efforts began to wander in early 2011.
I began making wood jewelry and gifts, which led to the launch of my line of sustainable wooden jewelry in August 2011. I added a few pieces to my dormant etsy store in the months to follow, leading to my first etsy sale on November 21, 2011.
Soon after, I introduced my line of exotic wooden plugs, and began listing gift items that I had created for the event vending I had done the previous summer. The more I added to my shop, the bigger reaction I received. A few oddball items began to draw attention (thanks, regretsy :) and the rest is history.
I've been working super hard to build my business, and I appreciate the help of my etsy customers very much. Lots hard work over many long days is beginning to pay off; I look forward to expanding before long, to offer more options with even quicker turnaround.
It is a great time to be a part of the handmade movement.
