Where have I been? I just moved from Cincinnati, Ohio to Washington D.C. in September. I haven’t had much time since then to post any new jewelry much less work on new designs. Finally, after much time adjusting (which I am still doing) I have been able to post a ton of new items in the Etsy shop (www.taraleasmith.etsy.com)I’m still experimenting with new techniques and seeing what’s working and selling well. I am working on creating some cheaper items that people can afford and still feel beautiful and unique with them on. You’ll see those in the coming weeks! More statement items are still going to be created and posted online that are completely original featuring one of a kind vintage and antique repurposed jewelry.
I also have a new website in the works (the husband is working on that!) which will allow me to sell online in my own true store! I can’t wait for that! I am working on some millinery items and perfecting them as of currently which you can get a sneak peak through the photos above. I think I need some more bracelets in the store also! So you’ll see those!
Last but not least, I am trying to still find my true niche and style and jewelry design. I love enamel flower and swarovski crystals. Pairing them together creates a true design but I think some more techniques put in the mix together would create a true stunning work of art. I am still an artist, but I want to further my career in this jewelry world. It’s so exciting and I never know what I’ll be inspired by or come up with next. Who knows, I know neon is huge and will be a big trend for this fall and winter and spring and summer 2012. So you might see that! Who knows, I will update more with new items I’m working on and posts of new statement pieces. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! :D Please check the facebook page for new items posted daily and sales and promotions. There will be one for Christmas!
