Major Changes at B.B. Bellezza

UPDATED 2/23/13

I have some bittersweet news today.  I have decided to focus on my Tutorial Business and take a break from making and selling jewelry. 

I will continue the jewelry business until the end of February 2013.  At that point, I will be closing my booth at Building Character.  My plan is for this to be a permanent change; however, I will follow my heart and see where it leads me.

It's bittersweet, but I'm letting go of the comfortable to reach for goals more in alignment with my dreams.  It's a decision that has been difficult and well thought out.

To answer some questions before they come up:

  • I will not make custom pieces and I will not be doing wholesale.  There is a possibility that I will be consigning jewelry at one location on a limited basis, and there are a few charities that I will continue to make jewelry for, but I will not take on any new charities.  After the end of February, there may only be one exclusive store to get my handcrafted jewelry.  I will definitely let you know where.

(Don't worry, though, I will teach you to make your own!!  Check out Emerging Creatively Tutorials and make sure to sign up for my Tutorials Newsletter!)

  • Artwork Pendants has closed. 

  • I will relay information on my email newsletter throughout February as well as here on my blog and on my facebook page.  Yes, there will be a sale (a big one at my booth at BUiLDiNG CHARACTER February 15, 16 and 17.)  I will post all the details.

  • No, I will not stop making jewelry.  I will definitely be making myself jewelry with the monthly challenges on Project Jewelry and I will be designing new jewelry and teach others how to make it.  I just won't be making jewelry to sell anymore.

  • If you have any issues/need repairs of jewelry you bought from me, by all means please contact me to fix it!

  • NEW:  At the end of February, I will be listing any jewelry still remaining in my Etsy Shop at a discount.  When it's gone, it's gone.  I will let you know when it starts to be available.  I will not be making anything new, though,.

I appreciate all of the support you have given me through the years.  This isn't goodbye, it's just a change!  I hope to inspire you to live a creative life and to make things for yourself!

Please join me at Emerging Creatively Tutorials.  Even if you don't like to make things, I also write about creativity and inspiration in general and anyone could use that!  (My main topics include:  Inspiration and Creativity, Jewelry Tutorials, Sewing, Scrapbooking - both digital and traditional, Embroidery and other miscellaneous tutorials.)

Please let me know if you have any questions.
