Woo hoo, today I have FINALLY launched a taster jewellery collection on Big Cartel. Yes siree, a sample of my jewellery is finally for sale online, and it feels slightly surreal! It is all handmade by me using precious metals and semiprecious or precious gemstones. I like my jewellery unfussy but striking and wearable in the day and evening. I hope these pieces are exactly that. Everything is deliciously giftwrapped for free.
I am a little tragic in the IT department, so the shop doesn't yet look exactly how I dream't it might, but I was getting to the point where, in chasing perfection, I was stalling the process completely. So it looks kind of, erm, minimalist, and will hopefully be improved and expanded as the months go by, but it is a START. And sometimes, in that weird alchemy when dreams have to become translated into reality, one has to be practical right? Starting is just so hard! My comfort zone is in the dreamscape, but, with my heart in my mouth, I am trying to make it reality, even if it does feel like wobbling baby steps. Has anyone else who has started a creative business felt this way? I'd love to know.
By the end of the week I hope to have a button on the blog and webpage directing you to the shop, but at the moment you have to go to Big Cartel and type Wild Acre into the directory search. My site is showing just a taster sample, but I will be adding to it as and when my pieces come back from the London Assay Office where they get hallmarked. Please go have a look-see and if you like it I would be incredibly grateful if you would spread the word. Any feedback too, on style, prices, anything at all, would be so gratefully received. Thanks! xx gulp!
