New site is up!

As many of you know, I have been working on my new web store for some weeks. I decided to go with Yahoo Merchant Solutions, as I liked the format and the ease of use ... and also the many features that my old store just didn't have. (And Etsy didn't even pretend to have.)

What an arduous time warp.

But -- guess what! It's up! Not too much inventory to choose from, yet. But I think it looks sweet, and I will start to get used to everything I can do with it. Wanna see?

I do believe that the time used is an investment in the future. I can add so many more items, so much more quickly. My clients do not need to sign up for anything ... all they have to do is buy what they want!

Let me know what you think. And if you have a yahoo store with some wisdom to pass on -- let me know!

Gwen Ifill wore my jewelry on PBS Washington Week last night.

I must admit -- I love her, I love the show and I was completely humbled.

Gwen came into our shop, The Pyramid Atlantic Community Arts Store, in Silver Spring, MD, (Washington DC). She was doing a book promotion as a benefit for her sorority. The evening was delightful as she introduced her wonderful new book -- Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama, and spoke openly and forthrightly to us all.

I asked her to choose one of my sets telling her I'd be thrilled to see her wear it on her show. She chose a Lapis Lazuli set and loved it so much she promised to design her Friday night's outfit around it. During the show I could hardly hear what they were speaking about I was so thrilled to see the jewelry...
