My shop has finally found a popular item! Actually, it would be more accurate to say the item found my shop. A friend I work with asked me to make her a custom item...she found it on Pinterest (a very addictive site, if you haven't already tried it). The piece of jewelry was a print of her boyfriend and her own print molded together to form a heart. I made it last weekend:
I have three orders still to complete but I'm waiting on receiving prints and sending out a mold kit.
I also sold another breastfeeding reminder ring last week (these will always be my favorite items in my shop). So it has been a great couple of weeks for my shop! I hope it remains at least slightly consistent like this for a little while but I feel the holidays are playing a large part in my recent success. I even had my first international sale this week! Someone in Finland purchased a necklace! It was an exciting moment.
Each time I have a sale it's such a great feeling. And instead of getting less surprising each time I actually get even more excited because it means I have a shot with this.
And to close on a superstitious note...I just saw that the heart charm had 33 views and 3 'favorites'. Three threes and it just so happens that three is my favorite number. When my shop only had 13 sales and 13 admirers I had 2 or 3 straight weeks of no sales.
