I love being organized, I’m a bit of a freak like that. My heart jumps a bit at bins and boxes. Needless to say I have been having a BLAST getting geared up for my first big reveal. I have totally revamped The Jeweled Heron. I am going to put everything I have learned from being self employed for 10+ years behind making this business successful.
With that in mind I’ve been beading like mad. My etsy store is currently empty because I am making my own webpage to sell from and because all those stale offerings needed better pictures and descriptions. I have a lot more to offer beyond what the shop held before. I’ve branched out from simple flat peyote to more dimensional work. I’m super excited to show you all what I have in store. I will announce the big reveal when it is closer to happening! Till then keep an eye on whatever social media outlet you prefer. I have been posting my progress on my Tumblr and Facebook pages, as well as Instagram and Twitter. Once the new webpage is up and running it will be used as a hub to get folks to their preferred outlet.
Some other organizing I’ve been doing is to get my pintrest board organized. I’ve been throwing all jewelry related stuff into one folder and while that makes for a pretty amazing folder, it is also pretty clunky and hard to search through. I have decided to break it up into three folders instead. One for beadweaving, one for chainmaille, one for wirewrapping, and one for general jewelry. I will also have one just for the Jeweled Heron pieces, but that one is currently empty until I get the pieces up for sale. (Oooooh! Big reveal coming soon!) SO much easier to find things that way.
I have also been working on setting up a Jewelry Show program with incentives for Host/esses to hold parties. More details on that to come. I am very excited about that as hosting a party means you have the chance to earn free jewelry! Who doesn’t love free jewelry?
I am still open for teaching basics to those who wish to learn. I love teaching and find that when I share my love for the creation process it keeps me from burning out on it! If you are interested in learning more about hosting a Beading Party drop me a line!
Things are slowly starting to work their way into a very good place. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
