Personal

Hello everyone!!! My name is Erin. I am 19 years old and I have been beading for five years. I make all of my jewelry with vintage baeds mixed with newer beads. I buy old and unwanted jewelry from flea markets, yard sales, and antique stores and take them apart so I can make new pieces.

I have suffered from Chronic Daily Headache since March of 2006. I was out of school for my entire freshman year of high school, but I found a calmness in making jewelry. It became my therapy and my passion. I sell my jewelry at local craft fairs, ones I can afford, that is, afterall, I am a teenager. I have come a long way from where I started with my designs. I became a consigner at a local bead store two years ago and I am trying etsy with little success.

All of my designs I post are one of a kind and for sale unless stated otherwise. If you have any quesions regarding me or my designs, feel free to ask me. I also have another website, other than etsy, that is more for looking, and learning about me as a beader. It is sites.google.com/site/antiquetochic.

I have had issues with my prices because my costs are so low. My jewelry ranges from $1.00-$15.00 per piece. I get necklaces at the flea market for about $1 each, and I can get about three necklaces out of each, so I am confused as to how my items should be priced. I have been selling earrings on etsy since late 2009 at $3.00-$5.00 each, but no sales. I was thinking people were shocked at my prices and automatically assumed low quality jewelry, but who knows.

I look forward to learning about this site and becoming friends with many of you avid beaders out there!
