You can find all of these fine silver origami items in the FoldIT Creations Etsy Shop
The Toronto Etsy Street Team Springtime Market is just a little over a week away and I am working like a mad man! I have my display idea solidified and most of my cases, display fixtures and frames purchased. It’s a matter of figuring out the dimensions of the space and how I will lay everything out. The theme of my booth will be Mid-Century Oriental Curiosity Shop. I envision a traveller returning from Asia with wonderful curiosities to exhibit. I cant wait! If you are in the Greater Toronto Area on Saturday June 1st, 2013, come out to 918 Bathrust (just north of Honest Ed’s) and support the wonderful local artisans of Toronto.
I am really excited to be working on some higher end products with sterling silver and gemstones for the Etsy Show. I am also working on a new line of origami pendants and sterling silver chains. It feels good to be able to offer my customers a range of products that meets their needs and desires. Here are the first two chains and pendants that I made and sold in the FoldIT Creations Etsy Shop last week:
Something that also excited me quite a bit this week is the recognition and support I have been getting from fellow Etzians. I am continually surprised and thankful by the feedback I get from other Etsy sellers and enthusiasts about my creations. Everyone has days where they doubt what they are doing and its moments like these that validate and reinforce the pride with which you work and create. Handmade enthusiast blogger Ellie of My Little Chickadee’s Blog kindly featured my tiny coral crane earrings on her Pick of the Day section this week. Pay her blog a visit and follow her across all social media platforms, she has a lot of great things going on.
I am excited to announce that FoldIT Creations has been selected as one of the vendors for the 4th Annual Toronto Etsy Street Team Springtime Marketplace. The market will be held at 918 Bathurst Street (a few blocks north of Bathurst subway station) on Saturday, June 1st from 11:00am – 5:30pm. Join their facebook event page and come out to support your hardworking Toronto Etzians and make sure you stop by the FoldIT Creations table to say “hello!”
FoldIT Creations will have a whole new selection of sterling silver origami crane post earrings to sell. Here are a few previews:
Oh my gosh! What a week! It’s Saturday night and I’m folding more tiny origami crane post earrings for Mother’s Day orders to be filled and shipped by Monday morning. They are going to new homes as near as the GTA (Greater Toronto Area where I live) and as far as New Zealand.
My Etsy shop this week was abuzz with a flurry of new followers, likes and orders. A treasury featuring my coral-colored crane post earrings made the front page of handpicked section on Etsy. So, for a short 30 minutes or so, anyone who visited the Etsy homepage anywhere in the world saw my earrings pop up. My iPhone Etsy app was going off like it was no ones business and when it rains it pours!
I’m so thankful to Jihye Rim of Suwon, South Korea who created the treasury that featured my earrings; the ripples of which are still being felt days later with more shop likes, followers and treasury features. A million Thank Yous Jihye!
