I have a new Etsy shop

I've been thinking about opening another Etsy shop to host my new jewelry pieces because they look so different from my doodle stuff. My new shop's name is Leporis, from the constellation Lepus (the rabbit). I was born in the year of rabbit, but I don't want to name my shop "rabbit" or "bunny". I want a name with a single word that sounds gender neutral and not too cute.

Here are some of the brand new creations in my shop. I went to our local home improvement center and gathered bunch of different parts and hardwares. I played and arranged all the parts until I found a solution that's visually appealing. I then add patinas to all the metal hardwares so they have an aged antique look, then I buffed some of the patina off with sand papers so not all of them have the same colors.

Would you come take a look and give me your feedback if you'd like? And if you have an Etsy account, it will be so wonderful if you can add me into your favorite shop and I will add yours to my fav as well. Let's help each other out.

Stay warm; have a great and safe week! xXxxX

Hi Flora,loving the new jewels! I don't want to put a damper on things, but just wanted to let you know that it takes AGES at the moment to upload your blog page, and it has taken me literally ten minutes to get this comment page up to tell you! It only seems to have been since the snow animation has been on your blog. I've checked heaps of other blogs on my sidebar and I'm not having problems with any of them, but yours comes up not responding every time. I am missing being able to browse your site!! Hope this helps, Wendy xx

Ah Wendy, thank you so much for letting me know! I am going to take the snow off and you let me know if it helps the speed or not, ok? Thank you so much! Xx

Wendy Sice said...

MUCH better! Back to normal! :)

The new jewelry line is so unique. I love it! And I love the fact that what looks like bolts and nuts is actually the real thing. :-)

Added your shop to my favorites. Naturally.

Oh, and I've just noticed that in the intro to the shop you put the URL to your Happy Doodle Land shop, instead of your blog.

Hi Flora!

Just to let you know, I've written an article about your new shop over on my blog here:

Hope you like it as much as I love your work!

2 Etsy shops?!?

You're my hero ^.^

Flora Chang said...

Ha... that's good! Thank you! : )

Yeah shopping at the hardware store is fun! Also I do have both URLs in the new shop's intro area because Etsy requires us to disclose all the Etsy accounts we have so people don't get confused.

What a lovely blog you run! Thank toy SO SO MUCH for doing that! I read it and thanks for the Brownie points and the About Your Dress points. XxXx

I know I am crazy! But they look too different to be kept in the same shop... crazy crazy crazy (scratching my head)
