new boutique openend!

after a year of dilly-dallying, i finally decided to open up shop over at smashing darling.i found out about this gorgeous, hip, and fashion oriented site from the blogs of several other jewelry artists.
i am hoping that it will be a good outlet for me, and i surely hope it will be better than etsy has been. i'm sorry, but that just has not worked out for me, no matter what i have done. i have taken some very good advice and put it to use, and still have only had 4 sales in a year.
i intend to keep my etsy shop open, mainly because i enjoy the teams i belong to - although i am not as active as i probably need to be. i'll work on that too.
at least i have to keep trying.
so, drop by and check it out if you have a chance.
it is truly a lovely site and i think you will find something you like in any number of the boutiques there.

Amber I so, so, so hope it works out better for you!
It seems like a nice site-- certainly has some great stuff-- more great stuff since you're there!

Lovely shop, Amber. Good luck. I am trying out Artistry Arts myself.

Amber - the new shop looks wonderful - I've not heard of this site before - your work seems to fit in so well. I wish you the best of luck.

I think Etsy can be great for some - but it didn't work for me either. Even though I shop there, it just didn't seem to be my typical customer did. Hope your new shop goes well!
