Personal

I am a small business owner who lives with her husband and adult special needs daughter. We have a set of sons who live not too far away and one of them works for me. I have been into beading since I purchased a chest of beads and findings at a local antique’s market, about 15 years ago. I still have that chest and some of those beads but I have been steadily selling off the ones I won’t use, on ebay. I have always loved jewelry making since I took classes for it in high school. My high school rocked!!!!
My tastes are eclectic and I make more than I wear and what I sell I sell to raise $$ for charity. It used to be that I could do shows and sales at local churches but that is not possible now so I make to give or hold or wear, hoping for a festival soon.

My biggest struggle is pricing. Anybody have any tricks or strategies? I sell vintage freshwater pearls and other beads from the 1970s – 1990s under the user name, tepsmom, on ebay. I try to sell my jewelry as eclectic_aftermath, there as well, https://www.ebay.com/usr/eclectic_aftermath. Okay, I even sell other things at, https://www.ebay.com/usr/vintage_stuffs
