This is Surreal

I had a banner day. I feel like I've broken through. I had an appointment to meet with a store owner in Easton, MD (where I used to live). The store is called La De Da and it is totally a store I'd shop at. She loved my work. I couldn't even believe it. Like I've said before, I'm not really a good sales person for my stuff, I just love creating. Hard to believe I used to be in retail. I think it's different when it's your work. It's so personal to me and I'm a sensitve softie on top of that. So, I'm on a "trial" run as I left some pieces on consignment. I'm really excited though. I could feel their excitement around my work and when someone feels that strongly about it, it's an easy sell. I can't even put into words how grateful I am to have someone give me an opportunity.

EDITED: All this new jewelry on this post and the post below was taken by La De Da. Hence, no longer showing in my Etsy store. :)
