600 Hearts and some sneak peaks

I reached a new milestone in my Etsy shop yesterday.
I am really excited about this because it took me 6 months to get to 400 and another 6 months to get to 500.  I reached 600 in just 4 months.  Even though hearts don't necessarily equal sales, my views and item hearts have been way up the last couple months.  I've also had consistent sales in my shop for 11 straight months now.  Thank you so much to everyone who has helped me get this far!

I finished working with purple this week and put together a few new charm bracelet mixes yesterday.
I got these shell beads back at Christmas.  I've known for quite a while that I wanted to use some of them to make a charm bracelet, but I'm finally getting around to putting that together.  I want to layer some of the beads like I did here.

I also have a new green mix, which is what I'll actually be making before the shell bracelet.  I never get tired of these colors!

While I was sifting through my greens, I found enough light sea green and spring/lime green to make button charm bracelets with each of these colors, too.


  1. Congrats on 600 hearts...that's awesome! And congrats on all your recent custom work too!
    Looks like you've got more fun projects in the works!

  2. That's great Rose! I don't know how you got so many in such a short time! I'm just over 400 hearts, and I've been on Etsy about 3 years or so.

  3. Congratulation on 600 hearts! Wishing you continued hearts, views and especially sales!

  4. Congratualations Rose! Your shop is fabulous and you totally deserve it! Wishing you continued SUCCESS!!!

  5. Thank you so much ladies! Your support and feedback means so much to me. Cindy, since I started making a big effort to improve my photos and start promoting my shop more about a year ago, I've seen a huge increase in hearts.

  6. Just catching up with you after a long weekend away from the computer! Looks like you're up to a whole lot this week! Loving the custom designed set in the post above too!

  7. That's wonderful, Rose! Congratulations!
    It's fun to see your pile of supplies and then to see your completed project.

  8. Thank you so much Nancy and Margaret!
