I did it! I opened another Etsy shop...MerkabaBeads

I recently opened a second Etsy shop, MerkabaBeads. I felt I needed to separate my handcrafted jewelry and scarves and my commercial beading supplies in order to make each shop easier to navigate. I hope to expand my bead shop within the next two months and make it a fun one-stop shop, featuring semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski crystals, Czech glass, sterling silver (beads and findings), vintage, stringing materials, and more.

I hope to realize this dream sooner rather than later and am in the process of ordering, photographing, listing, promoting, and all that *fun* stuff!

To celebrate opening a new Etsy shop, I am holding a contest. It's really simple too! Just leave a comment below and I will put all entries into a random drawing on February 14th! The winner will receive a $10 coupon for MerkabaBeads.
