I wanted to announce the opening of my very own shop! I’m so excited!! Over the past few years, my business has transitioned to more fully custom designs and most clients have been finding me by word of mouth, google searches, Instagram, etc. It made sense to create a space to view and purchase my work that was not through Etsy.
Does this actually change anything in the way my business works?
Meh, not really. I’ll continue to communicate via email (or phone if you prefer) to answer all questions, get you quotes, sketches, etc. for the piece you are contemplating. I’ll accept as payment the usual paypal & credit card. Now, however, I’ll have the ability to set up your custom listing in my own shop that will contain all the information about your custom piece in one place.
One thing that will change is that the prices through my own shop will be a little less than my Etsy prices for the same pieces, as I don’t have Etsy commissions to cover.
I will continue to leave my Etsy shop open. Many people find me here, have links here, or are more familiar and comfortable with the Etsy platform, etc. There are little pieces of me all over the internet basically!Â
- Review/Feedback page: Previously, I never had a singular place to leave feedback for my off-Etsy clients. I made a review-specific page where people for whom I have made jewelry may now leave feedback (hopefully soon I can make it so you can upload an image too). Have I made you a piece before? I’d LOVE it if you left me a review! YAY!
- Shop Policies & Information page for the fine print. Here’s the link.
- Detailed description of how my ordering process works. (Spoiler: same as before for the most part 🙂 But I do function differently from your average online shop because most of my pieces are not already-made items. I make most things custom to fit and to your metal and stone preferences. Here’s that link.
