That question has popped up on occasion over the years, and I have received some emails from some fellow bloggers inquiring as to if I was interested in selling some pieces I have made. I am pretty sure I have answered all inquiries.
Answer: As of this very second - I do not.
A little history how I got started repurposing jewelry: I was repurposing/recreating vintage jewelry long before it was a "popular thing to do".
Someone gave my daughter a box of vintage jewelry to play dress up with, back in the mid 80's. She never really cared anything about it - main reason, she did not play dress up very much. I sat down one day and started looking at the different pieces - lots of huge, old, blingie (is that a word ?) type earrings, and decided some of them would look good as a broach. Off to the craft store, and bought some pin backs and glue - and that was the beginning of my obsession with repurposing old/vintage jewelry/found objects. I made some broaches and necklaces, wore some to work, and gave some of them away (daughters had no interest in them). Did not put a lot of time into doing it, as I worked full time, and had children and a household to take care of.
I could not find the box of jewelry one day - somewhere down the road it disappeared. I think I know what might have happened. Lets just say I went on a major "clean out" binge one day years ago. Usually when I did something like that, a yardsale was in the near future, but if I remember correctly, I was not in a great mood that day. It may have been in a container I did not check if anything was inside, that hit the curb. Make note - Always recheck the contents of everything, when you "just know" they are empty, etc. before putting on curb. I was disappointed as there was quiet a bit left to work with.
I started accumulating pieces again, buying at the flea market, junk stores, etc. I use to go to the flea market often back then. Many of the vendors that had things like that would just have it in shallow boxes, on trays, in a pile, etc. with a sign 25 or 50cts., $1, etc. each. Those were the "good ole" days, because now since it is a popular thing to do - well you know "supply and demand".
Anyway - I continued to repurpose off and on - more off than on. Then when I stopped working, I started pulling out the supplies more often.
Oooops! Sorry - Started to ramble a bit.......
Back to the original question: So, as of this very second - No I don't. To be honest, I am very flattered that anyone would even ask.
I have made a list of the "pros and cons" of selling and so far the "cons" have won in my situation. It made me tired just making out a list of all the things I would need to do just to get started.
However.....As they say - never say never ! I have been known to change my mind before. I have kept a list of those that have inquired, and will continue to work on the "pros and cons" list.
Have a great week !
ETA: My daughters that had no interest in the "box of bling" back then? Well...Lets just say - when they, and some of the grands come to visit these days, more often than not they go out the door with a another necklace or bracelet on. Makes me Happy !
