I’m a creative person. In lots of ways. I write. I take photos. I make things. I enjoy cooking and experimenting. And I have a short attention span. At times. For certain things. Well, most of the time actually, and especially for my beads. What sells, what doesn’t sell and what I’m wanting to make. It’s a hard thing. Finding that niche, that thing that will set you apart. Finding the style that will keep me interested for more than five minutes.
I love making necklaces and bracelets and things. All the beads, the time to design and make them. The frustration when they don’t go to plan and the joy when it all comes together. Sometimes completely differently to what I envisioned. My work space has been a shambles for a while. It quite often is. I try really hard to keep it tidy, but the creative within me decides otherwise. And so a mess it stays.
The other day I had an epiphany. I would concentrate on the accessories side of my business. The small things. Scarf bails, brooches, pendants, rings and earrings.
So with that in mind I can finally start on tidying my room with a plan in mind. Moving cupboards, sorting beads and tossing them out (eek! yes I did it).
Sure it’s coming up to winter and these items will sell better, but I find they are also are becoming my bread and butter items. The regular sellers.
I’m in the process of updating the website and am having a huge sale. To help shift my old stock and make room for new items coming through it’s a massive 40% off sale. Yep, I know that’s huge. I want to move things, so I can get onto my new ideas. At the moment it is 40%off the total but I will be changing the prices to reflect the items that are on sale as there will be my new regular stock also for sale.
So come on over to the website – click on the link to the top right – and go shopping. Remember I will be adding and moving items around regularly so be quick if you see something you like.
