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.
Over 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.
Jewelry 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!
