Each year I am absolutely amazed by the interest in my photo jewelry, this is my third year selling these locally and I guess I thought the response would fade. Really, whenever I get an order I have that moment of wow, they like what I make, really?
When I started Hopemore on Etsy it was a way to showcase some of the other polymer clay work I do, but in the end this is really my claim to fame. Just in the last few days I've had two inquiries into why these are not in my shop, along with some personal orders and an invite to show my jewelry at a home holiday party.
I will work on the orders I have after my return from Perry Park this weekend. I will probably have to decline the holiday party just because I'm already feeling stressed, and yes these may very well show up on Etsy after Christmas. It is probably crazy to wait and miss the Christmas sales, but I find custom work via Etsy stressful and with the holidays, expectations seem higher.
Does anyone sell or buy custom work on Etsy? If so, I'd love to hear about your experiences.
