ok, so here’s the deal.
i’m gearing up for a relaunch of ampersand, my jewelry line, this spring. i started it in 2006 and had a steady bout of success and sales through 2007, including interest from the jewelry buyer at abc home . the truth of the matter, though, is that i have my eyes set on fiction writing and teaching, and even though i loved the whole business, marketing and production aspects of ampersand, it was just sucking too much of my time and focus away from my writing. that said, last winter i bowed out of selling on etsy and various boutiques in new york and barcelona.
but, with a return to grad school in the near future, and with my writing and work schedule firmly in place, i feel i can devote some more time to jewelry making these days.
keep an eye out on my new blog ampersandmade for the relaunch of my etsy store, and for glimpses of what i’m working on.
