Rainbow Flourite Jewellery

I showed a sneak peek of some rainbow flourite gemstones back in April. So now you get to view the completed items that I made with these lovely colourful stones. The rainbow flourite stones have a semi-translucent nature to them and come in a variety of colours and shades from purple and green, to orange and yellow. The necklace has been created in the style of a cascade or waterfall necklace, and the bracelet is in a dangly style that creates motion when you move.

New Pendant Too

Yellow Crazy Lace Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver

Yellow Crazy Lace Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver

This agate gemstone is a dyed yellow crazy lace agate stone, that is wire wrapped with sterling silver wire to create this unique pendant with amazing patterns to it.

Whilst emerald is the common modern birthstone for May, agate along with emerald is a traditional birthstone for May. Agate is also the birthstone for the Zodiac sign Gemini (21 May – 21 Jun).

New Jewellery Items In Store & Next Event

In preparing for the Pamper Party Event that I attended at the end of last month, I made quite a number of new jewellery items. Unfortunately, the event was a lot quieter than hoped, and therefore only a small amount of people attended. So now I have lots of extra items to list in my Purple Wyvern Jewels shop. I have managed to photograph some of them and have been listing a few of them.

Pendants

Green Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver

Green Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver

I brought the green agate gemstone in this Green Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver from a fellow Etsy seller. I purchased two of these tear drop shaped agate stones. I was looking for something to turn in to a birthday present for my Mother-In-Law and whilst emerald is the modern birthstone for May, agate along with emerald is a traditional birthstone for May. Agate is also the birthstone for the Zodiac sign Gemini (21 May – 21 Jun). So I chose this agate stone due to it’s lovely green colour, as unfortunately emerald would have been too expensive for me to use for the present. One of these was given away as a gift and the other is currently available for purchase in my shop.

I have two more new pendants listed for sale in my shop, with a couple more yet to be photographed and listed. The first pendant features a dyed purplish red crazy lace agate gemstone. Although, this particular stone doens’t really have any purple tones to it, it has more of a red colouring with some white tones to it. The second pendant features a fire agate gemstone, which has tones of white, ivory, peach and orange to it, along with an unusual crackled pattern.

Next Selling Event

I’ve been looking around for other local events to sell my jewellery at, and I’ve found a couple that are very local and happen on a regular/semi-regular basis, but unfortunately they are booked out at the moment. Hopefully spaces will become available for those at some point. In the meantime, I’ve found an Indoor Market over in Maldon, Essex that happens the first Saturday of each from 9am – 2.30pm. So on the 2nd July I will be there selling my wares.

Something To Aspire Too

Tundra in Dark Brown Leather and Navajo Fabric

Tundra in Dark Brown Leather and Navajo Fabric by Hoakonhelga

I was reading this article earlier today on the Etsy Blog in their Quit Your Day Job series. The article was about Andi of Hoakonhelga. It really reinforced an idea for me that I’ve been struggling with, being unique.

Whilst in brick and mortar stores or online ones, most bags I see are made from one type of material, but Andi not only recycles materials, but mixes the type of materials she uses in her bag creations. For instance like this “Tundra in Dark Brown Leather and Navajo Fabric” (pictured on the right) is made from a vintage leather jacket and a Navajo blanket. Something that I find quite unique and is obviously a strong selling point for her.

Whilst I made the decision to create jewellery from sterling silver and semi-precious stones, to have the selling point of using higher quality materials compared to costume jewellery that uses silver-plated materials. I still don’t feel I am offering potential buyers something unique. The difficult point for me is to know what buyers like or want, as I’m not getting the sales in that I can look at my stock and say that type of item is selling and that isn’t. Another way I can try to find that type of information is via item views and items that have been favourited.

Even though I currently have a small sample of data to work with, it appears that pendants and semi-precious stones are favoured over necklaces, earrings, bracelets and glass/crystal stones. However, that still doesn’t help me identify what can help make me unique, and allow me to stand out from other sellers. I can foresee that it’s going to take me quite some time to figure out my niche area is, and therefore to find my uniqueness in order to differentiate myself from other sellers making and selling similar items to myself.
