One year ago today I published my very first blog for Look Shiny Things. I had no idea how awesome this journey would be and how much I would have to be grateful for within this process.
I have learned so much – I am a better writer, I am even less wordy (sometimes anyway). I can also spot heat treated amethyst embarrassingly fast, I know that not all stones labeled turquoise are actual turquoise. Most of all, I have been able to share a great big part of myself with others. I am an introvert, I know it and I like it that way and I have always hated journaling. The idea that I would enjoy anything like this was sort of alien in the beginning of this blog writing journey. Now I feel very guilty when I have not posted anything new for a while.
I do have some news though, I am actively working on an Etsy shop. So far there is one whole product on there and my day job is super busy at the moment so I don’t know how fast that will grow – but at least it is started. I also found Titanium wire last weekend! This is really awesome because I can produce wire wrapped options that will be hypo-allergenic!! I am so excited to create some wire frame pearl pieces with the titanium wire. The downside is that, so far, I have not found a titanium chain supplier that sells pretty, feminine chain. My search in not yet over – I will keep you posted.
If that is not enough for you, as I was looking through the images I have uploaded to the site I noticed that I uploaded a couple, yet managed not to show them to you – let me rectify that with one or two pretty pictures to keep you going for a little while.
