About The Artist

My photo
I am a jeweler, a potter...an artist I suppose. I have been creating hemp, glass bead and wire jewelry since 1996 but have only been throwing pottery since the Spring of 2008. I plan to open my own gallery and workshop within the next five years but for now I make my work out of my home and sell in galleries and online. I sell my work to feed my hobby and because I am running out of room for my creations in the house. My art, like this blog, is in it's beginning stages and I hope that as my reader you will join me in my journey as an artist and enjoy it as much as I know I will!

My First Sale!

I sold my first piece on Etsy today!!! I sold my "Drinking Buddy" mug with the little turtle to a woman in Florida. She is not a friend or relative, just someone who found my page and liked my work! This is my first pottery sale other than a sale to a friend in college, I think for Mother's day or a mother's birthday... Joan? Anyway, this is my first sale to a non-relative/friend and my first Etsy sale! I have yet to even have business cards printed (due to a housemates' empty promises...I'm a little bitter) or really advertise at all other than on my Facebook so this is pretty major and I'm really excited! Just wanted to share the excitement!

Congrats! I was really excited when people I didn't even know bought mugs at my reception last week. I haven't sold on Etsy yet though. Good luck with your sales :)
