This week's My Monday post is an update on Four Elements Design. What we have been up to? Where we are heading? F.E.D.'s future plans? 2010 has been a whirlwind personally and professionally. Saying that we like the challenge!
Last week I had the pleasure of making some new lampwork beads just because I wanted to. I love that. No deadline. No custom order demands. Making beads with absolutely no requirements allows me a freedom to just create. I can enjoy the way they turn out, good or bad, and learn from the experience. It is very freeing. We made five new bracelets. I will include a few pictures with this post!
Four Elements Design or F.E.D. for short has really taken off. Etsy may be slow, but I have had numerous requests for custom work. So rather than getting discouraged that my Etsy sales aren't growing I am looking at it as a way of advertizing. People are seeing my designs, liking them, and requesting custom work which equals business. I'll take a purchase any way I can get it!
At F.E.D. we are continually looking at fresh ways to encourage our business to grow. Having said that, integrity and originality are always a must. We have had requests to design jewelry for weddings. We have had requests to carry our designs in stores. I am so honoured by the support and appreciation for what I create.
2010 really has started out with a bang! We look forward to keeping that momentum for the rest of the year!!!
As always, thanks for reading,
