Is it with sadness that I announce I have closed my Metapolies ™ store on the Artisan Component Marketplace. I started with the project before the site opened last year and was honored to have been selected by Marla James to be even a small part of its development. I think ACM provides a terrific opportunity for artisans selling their handmade beads and components, and sincerely wish I could continue with it.
...I encourage you to continue shopping there and if you haven't taken a look yet, please do! (Shop ACM here.) There are beautiful hand-made art beads from around the world! I'll feature some of them in future blog posts.
I'm finding that in addition to other commitments, trying to keep up multiple stores at once is not currently feasible for me, so I'm going back to having just one online store, for a while at least. Because I need to be able to sell both my components and jewelry, I decided to keep the Metapolies™ store on Etsy I opened last year.
The store on Etsy is now much better stocked with jewelry, polymer clay beads, and metal components. I have many more items (especially jewelry) ready to list and hope to get those added in the near future.
My thanks to you all who have visited my stores as I've added, subtracted, and experimented with store venues this past year. It has been a great learning experience for me, and I hope you have benefited by it in some ways also.
For now, a sigh of relief for me, as I settle down to my remaining store. I look for many good things to come from this! I'm hopeful the additional time will allow me to keep the store full of interesting items for you, and I'll be able to refocus my attention on:
- creating new designs,
- blogging, and
My sincere thanks and best wishes to all,
P.S. To recap:
- "Sharyl's Jewelry" on Artfire = closed
- "Metapolies" on ACM = closed
- "Metapolies™" on ETSY = open
- "Metapolies.com" website = open
I'll be working on updating whatever links I've not yet changed in the next day or two.
