I have noticed that over half of what I sell in my Etsy shop is earrings and yet I'm not making a lot of earrings. In my shop I have over three times as many necklaces as earrings. Why am I not making more earrings? Is it because I don't usually wear earrings myself or is it that I only like to make one of something? I only started making earrings after a customer requested that I make a pair similar to a pendant I made.
It's time to start making more earrings. For every pendant I make I will force myself to make two pairs of earrings. I say 'force,' but it's not like I won't enjoy making them, I just don't naturally gravitate towards making them. This past week I did manage to make several pairs of earrings so that's a start.

Front Page!!!

My Emerald City earrings made it to the front page of Etsy yesterday. I have only made it to the front page maybe three other times, so when it happens it's pretty exciting. I know there are some artists who end up on the front page on almost a daily basis, I'm not so lucky. Hopefully I'll be able to maintain some momentum after this exposure. It's amazing the amount of hits and hearts my site received during that period, probably over a months worth in the course of an hour. Thank you to humblebea for making the treasury that got me to the front page.
