etsy shop finally open!!



The moment has finally arrived - I've put some items up in my etsy shop!! I was motivated in part by Jessica Lim of
Modamuse, who has offered to have some of my items up in the upcoming Modamuse shop. How exciting!!

So I had to take that final, scary step and decide on some prices. It's hard! Very reminiscent of trying to decide on my hourly rate for web design back when I was a newbie. I really don't want to charge too much, but don't want to undersell myself either. Each of the pieces takes at least an hour to put together including the printed packaging, so I tried to base it on that. I asked around and got a few suggestions, and sort of averaged them out. But at the end of the day I'm still charging more than a lot of people of etsy, which is a worry.

Anyway any feedback or suggestions would be much appreciated. Note that all prices on Etsy are in US dollars but they don't actually stipulate that (which is a concern amongst lots of non US sellers).

the shop is here! --> kirinco.etsy.com


stuff for sale so far :)

Thanks for all the lovely congratulations everyone!! I just realised how many there were :)

Stereoette - Thanks! Ooh, I should get on to making some more! Especially more of that blue dot necklace :)

You have earring issues? Too many earrings, or do you sensitive ears?

I'm thinking of writing that for anybody with sensitive ears, they can have silver/gold hooks attached for a couple of dollars extra. That'd be nice.
