Welcome to my new website!
I still love making new jewelry.
I really thought hard about giving up my business. I'm working full time now, so I have limited time for running a business. It seems like I have so much less energy for outside activities. Maybe because when I worked before I was working 35 hours a week instead of a full 40. I used to work 9 hours a day Monday thru Thursday so I could have Fridays off. That extra day made a huge difference.
So the past couple of months I've been debating closing my business.
But here's the thing: I still love making new jewelry!
So maybe I just need to make it easier to manage.
I've had my website StoneWingDesigns.com for an awful long time. I've Etsy a long time, too, though not as long. The traffic is better on Etsy, but I really need the website for branding purposes, and I don't really want to let the name go.
So if I keep the website name, do I keep my Shopify store that's connected to it?
It costs me $29/month and it's been a very long time since I sold anything off of it because I haven't been putting new products out there like I do on Etsy.. I hate the double effort of managing two stores. So that's why I'm trying this new website builder from Etsy. If they can keep the products in sync without extra work from me, that's a huge benefit. So we'll see.
Meanwhile, hope you enjoy pictures of some of my new jewelry!
