I love January! Definitely not because of the weather, but because I look at it as a new beginning...a fresh start. I know a lot of people make resolutions in the New Year and I want to make some intentions for Coastal Charms Jewelry for 2016!
Every year I learn so much more about what it takes to have a viable jewelry business. I make mistakes every year and try to correct or improve upon them for the New Year:) Yes, I definitely see ways to improve!!
First off, I am going to try and make a conscious effort to have more matching sea glass earrings for the sea glass pendants I design. I have to admit, that sometimes I just want to experiment or I get bored making the same thing so I make jewelry that doesn't really fit in with the rest of the collection.
I use that term VERY LOOSELY, because in fact, I am not sure you could say I have had a collection! What I have had up until now are a lot of one of a kind sea glass pieces. I have been told recently that I should include more matching pieces and I think that is a brilliant idea:))
I also want to add a NEW collection! I have started to experiment with wire wrapping and I am really having fun creating frames and adding stones, etc...When I have a few matching sets ready, I will let you know. I am hoping you will like the pieces as much as I love making them!!
Lastly, I need to make that newsletter!!!! Yes, I really do want to touch base with you and find out what YOU would like to see in the upcoming months. I would like a way to reward my loyal customers with private sales, etc...
That being said, if you want to be "in the know" about the sales and new designs, sign up below. AND if you have any constructive comments on what you would like to see as far as sea glass jewelry designs this year, I would love to hear from you.
Thanks! Have a great day:) Deb
