Meet Skye, Friday’s Featured Artist – & Enter to Win FREE Earrings!

Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!

Eclectic, fun, happy, creative, spiritual, industrious are just a few words that describe me. I love the great outdoors, riding my horse Earl Gray, hiking, milking the goats (ok, I do that inside) and skiing. The only limits any of us have are self imposed so I care to have no limits… not even the sky.

Tell us about what you sell:

I sell jewelry created in my little studio in the mountains. I am a metal smith and love taking a small piece of raw metal and creating a lovely piece of jewelry. Stacking rings seem to be hot right now, but on any given day I make what nature inspires me to make.

What is your favorite thing about creating?

I love to see something with little life come alive. I love working with stones and metal, the energy of the stones comes out so strongly in the piece and the metal reflects that energy back to the wearer. Oh, such a wonderful way to create healing.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Nature and meditation is mostly where I find inspiration.

Do you have any selling tips or tricks for other online sellers?

The best tip I could offer anyone is to be kind to all your customers and offer terrific customer service. Smile in your emails. Let them know you got their order and when you will ship it. If you are late, let them know and why without any excuses. Answer all your convo’s and if they want to return an item, let them for something they will really love. After all, someone wearing one of our items with pride is the best marking you can have. Putting all this into your communication with others will allow your shop to flourish!

Where can we find you outside of your shop?

I’m only here. It is quite enough for me. With an organic farm to run, I can’t allow myself to spend too much time on the computer!

Do you have a coupon code for us?

    The problem with selling on Etsy is that you never really know if you are buying from a reseller. Artfire has eliminated the reseller problem by creating a Commercial section for resellers.

    • MegansBeadedDesigns May 6, 2012 at 1:35 pm Reply

      I think there are some pretty obvious signs that can differentiate the resellers from the handmade artisans. Most handmade crafters sell items that are completely unique, and you wouldn’t be able to find them on wholesale sites like AliExpress. Plus you can ask for custom requests, which many resellers wouldn’t be able to do. Honestly I don’t think that Artfire’s reseller sections has really helped their site much, I don’t think it would be a good idea for Etsy to mimmick them in that respect. Etsy just needs to focus on having the same rules for everyone, and enforcing them evenly. Letting resellers slide while letting honest sellers get shut down without a warning is a practice that does not work in their favor, but I don’t think that the Artfire mutings or hiding their forums away from non-sellers speaks well for them either. A venue is a venue, and I will support handmade artisans when and where I can, whether it be on Etsy, Artfire, Zibbet, a local craft fair, or any other venue they are sold. Hope that makes sense.
