Consignment

I was approached by a woman who is opening a new shop. She had seen my work on Etsy and wondered if I'd be interested in placing some of my jewelry pieces in her shop under consignment. Seeing as how I just began creating jewelry I was totally flattered, but overwhelmed at the same time. I mean I just began my adventure with polymer clay and jewelry making. Yes, I had placed a few items on Etsy, but did I expect to move this quickly? The answer is NO!

After some thought I decided to go ahead and try it. I contacted her by email with my decision and she requested we meet. Problem was that she wanted to meet in just a few days and I really didn't have too much to show her. I had loads of beads and charms that I had made playing around with my polymer clay, but only about eight finished pieces/sets. On top of this I still had my grandbabies, a 2 1/2 and a one year old, running around!

My husband offered to watch the kids so I went ahead and closed myself up in my little studio and got to work. A day and a half later, I ended up with twenty-eight items to present to her, plus I reworked my logo and packaging too! She ended up taking all my pieces.  I guess it just proves what a little motivation can do, right?

Here are a few of the new pieces (and the new logo - an owl! Tori means bird, Sophia means wisdom):- please excuse the photos, they were just snapped in a quick effort to track what I was sending.

Great job Shelley! Congrats on the consignment! So cool she came to you! Is this a local shop? I live in Hampton, so you're not too far away from me.

Your beads are perfect together. I love that color pink. I love pink and green. I just blogged about a similar colour combo, what a coincidence! Your Cocktail is one I might have to try too!

Thanks Marla. But compared to your beadwork, mine is amateurish!

Thanks Lisa. No, the shop is in North Carolina. I am new here in VB and don't think I've been to Hampton yet. Is it nice there? Will have to look it up, I know its close but still so unfamiliar with the area.
