A year ago today I opened my second Etsy shop, Someday Soon Jewelry. I had been selling upcycled vintage plugs via Yessiree Petunia but wanted a place for all sorts of plugs plus more. Rings, pendants, bracelets, pierced earrings... I dabble in it all. Jewelry for gauged ears is my first love though.
I could've never imagined such a wonderful first year! I'd hoped for 1000 sales in the first year but as of today I'm at 875. I'll take it! I love making pretty plugs for lovely ladies. I started off creating upcycled pieces only but I've enjoyed branching out into all things beautiful. My favorite day to day plugs are plain ivory pearls. It makes me feel rad knowing I've made 100s of similar gauges for other women so they can have a classic look. Whether they are walking down the aisle or teaching, they can wear plugs comfortably. It's not about hiding, more about versatility.
I love being my own boss but even more than that, I love helping another woman feel good about herself. I hope to do the same thing for many years to come!
Any other Etsians out there or anyone interested in starting an Etsy shop?
