Marfy top 1913 in making

It was busy day. Having my Red Point Tailor shop on Etsy I may participate in different activities organised by Etsy.

In May Etsy organises ETSY school on SEO where we work on improving our shops to be better visible for search engines. I was paired with Richende, who is selling funky, modern bracelets in her shop RichBracelets.

We have got a manual where some of the exercises have to be done together, so yesterday direct after work I went to Enschede (NL) to meet Richende. It was nice to meet other Etsian and exchange experiences.

Afterwords I went to an atelier of Bas van Loo, who is making one of the garments for a BMA challenge. He would like me to make buttons to his garment. I needed a piece of a fabric to find good colour of glass. Nice challenge for me.

After coming home and taking a short break I proceeded with the Marfy 1913 top. I decided to underlined the front with very thin viscose lining – unfortunately I did not have silk china in gray. It feel and look great – much better then trico in skin colour.

I stay stitched front and back necklines and armholes, made 2 rows of stitches for gathering front neckline.

Stripes series

With so many ideas it is difficult to stop making new items in the HotPot.

As a result it was too late to take photos during the daylight. Fortunately Meisje has approved the setting so I was feeling much better :-).

Stripe series - soon on Etsy Meisje chekcing the setting2 Meisje chekcing the setting3 Meisje chekcing the setting4

At the end of the session both lamps refuse to work.  I will have to buy new LEDs or Halogen lamps… I have to check first.

Now only …. hmmm, only  … descriptions and I will upload the new items to Etsy shop.
I like this colour combinations and way the glass stripes fused in the HotPot creating surprising effects.

Sunny weekend – Etsy order on the way

Yesterday a package with jewellery boxes has arrived – just in time for sending my first order. What a timing Knipogende emoticon

First Etsy order Etsy sending First Etsy order Etsy sending

It is a box made of black and read cardboard with 2 black foam-inlays. It looks really luxury and the colours suites to my logo.
The size is 120 x 90 x 120 mm. There are a special openings in the foam so it is easy to place there a necklace, earrings or a broche.

The company Wilhelm & Kling bv offers possibility of printing a company name on the cover (or inside the cover) – maybe something for the future.

I could prepare a nice package for my first new customer – to make sure that it will arrive save. I enjoyed it very much.

And then to the envelope and the post office!

When I was back at home it appeared I forgot to put a copy of an invoice inside … hmmm… I have to make some checklist.

I have sent a confirmation to the customer and I started to work on new items. It was a very sunny Saturday so you work with pleasure.

Last Wednesday I moved all equipment and supplies for making fused jewellery upstairs …

Glass Fusing - new placeGlass Fusing - new place

and I see I have to speed up with sewing to have more space for glass fusion supplies.
I have to make it easy to clean up when I need this cutting table for my fabrics.
It will be a challenge.

Meanwhile I have made 3 pendants

and 2 earrings.

I will add finding to all items and take photos tomorrow – with nice daylight.

I have to work on the good schedule for my week so I could enjoy sewing and glass fusing activities equally.

First Etsy order!

Yes! I have my first sell on Etsy Knipogende emoticon.

My silver plated wire necklace and earrings are sold! What a nice feeling.

First Etsy order - Red Point Tailor on Etsy

 

 

I am now busy with packing – it has to have save journey to the USA – and it will go on Saturday.

 

 

 
It is as well good experience for me! It looks very easy. Etsy and Etsy teams provide good advises.

I am as well fortunate to have a very good friend – Jenjer – who has her own jewellery shop FJJ Creations – she helped me in my first steps with very good advises.
Thanks Jenjer!

HotPot weekend workshop in Ee

Once a year a group of friends is having a weekend in Ee (Friesland, The Netherland). Ee, Friesland, The Netherland - holiday house

There is a very old farmer house which is converted to ‘holiday house’ – with a swimming pool, sauna, place to play for children, horses, etc.
I was there few times with them – years ago, and this time I was invited to join them again.

I was so enthusiasts that I was already week earlier – I put incorrect date in my agenda Emoticon met brede lach  When I arrived it was dark, silent and empty. The owner opened the door – surprise even more then me – asking who am I looking for? I looked inside recognising the place but there was no-one. At first I though they all are swimming or went for some play in nearby city… no. I was one weekend too early.

During the stained glass workshop my friends were so inspired that we agreed to have a HotPot workshop to make a jewellery in Ee.

So next week I will pack (again) all pieces of glass, a microwave, all needed tool and other things and head north.
Knowing my friends I expect a lot of creativity and fun. I will place few photos after this workshop.

Meanwhile I am fusing more and more items. It is fun but I feel I am missing sewing. I have to find a balance.

Herewith my last creations – all on Etsy Knipogende emoticon

Something in emerald green… following the trends for 2013. I have glass in this colour – I will make more necklaces and earrings. I like this colour.

From HotPot to Etsy

Majority of photos are taken… next step – write descriptions.
