JiSTdesigns… Open for Business!

Take a look at my hand knit wire bracelets, necklaces and earrings! What do you think?

I’m having fun creating one of a kind jewelry items, many with glass or fused glass elements. There is more to come so stick around!

Little by little it all will come┬átogether…

Taking it to the Streets!

What was I thinking?

lime chartreuse turquoise squares hand knit wire dangle necklace at JiSTknits on etsy.comI’ve learned a lot about myself over the past year.

I’ve learned that 3 shops on Etsy – in addition to a full time day job, family and life – are just too much for me to handle right now… And that it’s ok to let go…

For this reason, I’ve decided to place my third shop, JiSTwireKnits, on semi-permanent vacation.

Antique Brass cuff bracelet hand knit wire with cherry jasper beads and a bar clasp available at JiSTknits on etsy.comOver the course of the next few weeks, most of the wire knit jewelry that is currently available in that shop, will be moved to one of my two original shops – JiSTknits and JiSTglass. Items that are knit of wire and may feature beads, will land in JiSTknits and those with a bit of a stained glass element will be available in JiSTglass.

gold glass nugget knit wire necklace from JiSTknitsJewelry on Etsy – and in the retail world for that matter – is a very competitive segment. The online shop never really gained traction, although I’ve had modest success with my work at area craft shows. Maybe jewelry is too personal an item to sell simply through photographs and description. Who knows.

So, that being said, please do visit JiSTknits and JiSTglass… and let me know what you think!
