I have made jewellery since I was 16 and collage pieces since I was 20 but recently I no longer have time to sell my wares. I don’t have the resources at the moment to find craft fairs, to promote my Etsy shop and to source new shops to sell in. I have pulled my jewellery from most of the places it was selling and my art & cards are now only available on Etsy.
I am trying to decide what to do with the stock I have and this blog is, as much as being an update for those interested, a plea for ideas. I am more interested in finding something to do with them rather than making a lot of money – although I won’t say no to the money, it always helps. I hate the idea of them sitting in a drawer or ending up in a rubbish bin somewhere.
If anyone in the past has liked something I’ve made and would like to make an offer on a piece, or pieces then please do get in touch. I am also very willing to sell wholesale. I’m not looking to sell on consignment at the moment as I don’t want to be tied into contracts. As far as costs go I want to cover my costs and a little profit would be great.
Everything can go as far as I am concerned. All of the jewellery, the art and the cards are available. The only thing I am not selling are the prints of my collage pieces, which were only ever available as cards anyway. If you read this and would like something I can arrange details over email or through Etsy for any/all products.
If anyone hosts jewellery parties and wants some extra handmade bracelets then I have a ready made set of stock. If there is someone who wants interesting pieces to compliment their picture frames then I have a ready supply of 5×7 collage pieces.
I feel obliged to point out that I poured a lot of time, energy and creativity into these pieces and it has not been an easy decision to stop selling them.
I’ll include pictures of some of the collage pieces, either A4, Cards or 5×7 prints. Frames can be included or left out. I’ve not put pictures of the jewellery in here because, well frankly there are more than enough pictures and I have got hundreds of different styles of bracelets. Anyone interested should drop me a line and I’ll happily share photographs.
p.s. Sorry if this is more business-like than usual on here but I’m trying to remain detached, selling off so much work and a lot of it that is very personal is a little wrenching!
