Over the past couple of years I have made a lot of jewellery. I mean hundreds of pieces. Some have fitted beautifully into my Folksy shop and become repeat sellers. Some I have loved so much I've kept them for myself (oops!), and some have been one-off designs that have gone to new homes and are hopefully loved and cared for.
Then there's the others. There's absolutely nothing wrong with them, they're all made with care and attention to detail, but despite listing them on Folksy and Etsy over the last year, they just haven't sold. Maybe the price is a little too high, or the right person just hasn't spotted them.
Whatever the case, they're now languishing in a big cardboard box doing absolutely no good to anyone. Which makes me very sad.
So, here's what I've decided to do. Twice a week (Wednesday and Sunday) I will be showcasing a selection of undiscovered treasures here on my blog. The price shown next to them will be the absolute minimum price I can sell each piece for without making a loss. It will include the cost of materials, a small overhead and a little extra to cover postage costs.
Here's where you come in. If you spot a piece that you love, email me at email@example.com and tell me the name of the piece and the price you're prepared to pay for it. At the end of the showcase I'll contact the highest bidder and the piece will be yours.
Wednesday showcases will end at 12 noon the following Sunday.
