You don't like my jewelry?

That's okay, you won't hurt my feelings.  It took me a while to 'get' it but someone explained it to me in a really nice way:  there's a reason that so many sodas (or pop if you will) exist on the market.  Some people like Coke.  Some like Pepsi.  Are you a Sunkist?  Fanta?  Or Sprite fan?  Maybe 7-up.  Club soda.  Ginger ale.  Root beer.  Grape Crush.  Dr. Pepper.  Orangina.  Coke Zero....

You get the picture, right?  There's something for everyone-- because we are all unique individuals therefore we have unique tastes.  And not everyone is going to love everything.  As a marketer, I have to find out who my customer REALLY is, what motivates them to buy from me and what keeps them coming back.  It's a marketing game but I think it's so psychological.  And it's really hard to figure out, I'm still working on it-- so Metalicious will always evolve to please my customers.

Now, if you're not a Metalicious modern jewelry lover I've got plenty of other jewelry-making friends with such diverse and high-quality styles that I know you'll find someone to love!  I'm a proud member of the JET (Jewelry on Etsy) team, you can find us here.  We are a group of fun-loving jewelers from all over the world!  I love every single person on the team, and their work is as diverse as each pocket of the world we come from.

We're having a trunk show on Etsy on Sunday, November 21st at 8pm EST.  We'll be featuring, virtually, the unique work of our members.  Ready to get some shopping done??  Now is the time!  On Sunday just click HERE to get to the lab-- you need to be a member of Etsy but it's really easy to sign up.  Click HERE to sign up for an Etsy account, you will not be spammed, I promise!

A great article on a super team of artisans. The Trunk Show will be a great way to sample all of the different styles that these team members create.

I LOVE your jewelry, but point well taken...I think jewelry is like real estate...something for everyone. So I hope folks visit the Trunk Show to see the diversity the Jets make on a daily basis.

Thanks, Steph, for featuring my bracelet--it's one of my faves.

We really are a great group!!
