    Wow, Shannon, you have been busy getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day, haven’t you??! Where are you going to sell all the items you’ve made recently — do you have an upcoming show?

    And I thought that I was getting a jump start when I started making ONE green bracelet last night! LOL. :-) SLS

    Lol, I know I can’t believe how quickly I got all of these made. I ordered them with my Valentine earrings so they were staring at me yesterday. I suppose it helps that green is one of my fav colors.

    I sell to a local consignment shop/boutique and I have displays at several beauty salons. Surprisingly, the beauty salons have been very profitable. I am trying to do more on Etsy and facebook as well as seek out new venues. I may do a show in March too.

    After I made all of these, I have some friends going on the Buckeye Cruise this week. It is a fundraiser for breast cancer. We were talking and I made 40 pairs of various breast cancer earrings today for her to try to sell on the cruise. I plan on donating a portion of the sales to the cause. Hope it’s successful for both of us!

    Thanks for sharing … wow, you are busy. And how neat that your friends are taking some on the cruise … great idea. Happy Creating! SLS

    P.S. Etsy and Facebook take time to get things rolling if you ask me so it’s good that you have the other venues as well! SLS

    Very cute !!!! Love all the combos…
    Good luck with the sales… hope you sell them all !!!
    And what a great idea to make ones for the breast cancer cruise…. I bet the 40 will go very fast, everyone will want a pair !!!! Do you have pictures of those?

  13. Natures Precious Gems
    Natures Precious Gems says:

    No, I didn’t take any pictures :( I’m not happy with the outcome of these pic’s. I ordered a photo/light box yesterday so I hope that problem is solved!

    I plan to make more, when I do, I’ll post them. If they do not sell we will use them as a fundraiser for Relay for Life.

    Thank you for all the wonderful comments!
