So this is where it starts. I have a blog. Now, the question is, what to write about.
This all started because I found myself somewhat handicapped. This led to my family giving me a gift of jewelry-making supplies - thereby giving me something to do within the restrictions by which I am currently bound. Well, I enjoyed it so much that, in no time, I had made over 100 pieces of jewelry. One little problem with that - I have no place to put 100 pieces of jewelry, let alone places to wear them. So, after a number of people saw what I was making and commented that they were certain I could sell what I was making, a business was born.
Now you know - I make jewelry. I use lots of crystals and pearls and semi-precious stones. My designs tend toward simple elegance. However, once in a while, a mood strikes me to try something different, or off-the-wall, or downright quirky. A lot depends upon what kinds of stones and beads I come across that I think would be interesting to work with.
To sell my treaures, I have opened a store on Etsy. It is called RomanticThoughts and can be found at RomanticThoughts.etsy.com In the midst of getting the shop up and running, I have also found a few vintage items that I thought could find new homes via my etsy shop. Hence, I have added those few items to my shop and will probably add more as I come across things that interest me.
Anyway, this is how it starts. We'll find out together how things progress. Thanks for visiting.
