It’s selfie time!

Whenever I do my Etsy shoots, I try to also wear the pieces out and about for a photo record of how they look in real life, like this blue beaded pendant, ring and earring set. Sweaterdress season is almost over, and this jade stone collar looks great with knits. It’s fun to mix and […]

Etsy Refresh

Valentine’s Day is coming up so it is time to review my jewelry inventory. With 238 pieces of jewelry in stock that is more time consuming than anticipated. I’m pleased to see that only one pendant has gone missing after packing and repacking items for multiple locations at least 10 times this past year. Deleting […]

Maike’s Maraviglia out and about

I’ve been enjoying the weather and nature so much that promoting my jewelry has been backburnered a bit. But you’ll see me wear and can peruse fun pieces at NEW’s Crain’s Small Business Week Event on Wednesday. My Chakra Bangle and Twinsy Dancing Spirals are with me most often. The Morpho Butterfly wax and wire […]

More Etsy newbies

I’ve loaded some new pieces to Etsy last week while reviewing what I have in stock. Anything created since then will debut at Platt-A-Palooza on August 30 and make their way to Etsy after that (if it doesn’t go home with someone). My newly loaded pendants include Lime-Green Abstract Circle, Peace be with You, Write in […]

Summer Jewelry on Etsy

Before my 3-day escape last week I did a photoshoot for Etsy. This week I loaded more inventory onto the shop, as I explore other venues to display and sell my work. Draw was inspired by the fabulous pencil handler Lauren Levato-Coyne. She taught me how to draw, and her friendship has drawn me into […]

Hippity Hopping

I recently visited Norridge for a Trunk Show that was a lot of fun. The sign makes me think of The Wedding Singer. It was my biggest display table yet, so I had to take two shots to get it all in. Fellow Network of Entrepreneurial Women member Marianne was there with Melaleuca and her […]

Re-stocking Etsy

I’ve been Etsyfying over the past week and loaded several earring pairs in time for the day of love on the 14th. Hop on over to my store and take a peek at all the newbies.  Enter LETLOVERULE14 in the coupon code box through the end of the month to get a $5 discount. Aurora […]

Validation

I took off most of August to tend to visitors which meant that my studio was also occupied. As I reviewed the upcoming exhibits and fairs I felt stressed that I had not spent more time in the studio. Then I created some pieces for Aurora Rose which brought me back into that zone of […]

Etsy is getting crowded

“Very beautiful! I love the attention and artistic care you put into both sets.” ~ Birthday earring shopper I’ve been loading pieces to Etsy over the past week or so, so you have some new pieces to peruse. The Mustard Square: Three Pearls of Wisdom: I loaded a set of earrings last week that got […]

Pendants of the Day/Week

I started posting pendants of the day to my personal Facebook page, which seems to be resonating with my friends. So I’m contemplating shifting that over to the fan page to see if a pendant of the day/week is something people like to see. Clockwise: Seashells in the Waves, Raffia Square, Wrapped Boomerang and Womanly […]
