  • Launched my new website

    I've recently launched a new website for my handcrafted dichroic glass & silver jewellery. I have designed & created the website myself and would love to hear what anyone thinks about the site and my jewellery peices.

    I started making jewellery last year and instantly fell in love with it. Within months I had upgraded my kiln so that I could start making larger glass objects. I am currently looking for ways to promote my site, and am going to be doing some craft fairs this year for the first time.

        Lovely work! Glass is a nightmare to photograph and your pics are great...love your wirewrapped pieces from the blog too!
        I think you just need to add your address to the site (sorry if I overlooked it) because of the new regs. You're a very clever woman!

              Thanks for all your replies. It's always nice to get other people's opinions... being in my workshop all day long, I don't really know that many people to ask their opinion.

              Oooh - I designed & uploaded the website myself. I learnt how to create websites years ago and this one took just a couple of days to do. I create all my own graphics too. I was worried that the buttons on my website might look too big?

                No they're not too big, they're nice and clear, the site is very easy to navigate - thats the bit I found hardest when doing my website - but I like the way you've got all the item categories down the side, then all the info pages along the top.

                Nice bowls - they're great.

                        Thanks again for your feedback. I'm sooo chuffed with your comments. My websites not been uploaded long. I've been spending as much time as possible trying to advertise it and get it listed. I've emailed mailshots about mothers day coming up.... I've emailed all my friends and asked them to email all their friends about my site.... I've emailed online directories and magazines to add my site.... I don't really want to have to pay alot for advertising... but I would like lots of customers

                        If anyone has any cool suggestions about advertising sites.. I would love to hear them.

                        ooh - the camper van website started when me & my boyfriend bought a 1965 VW Splitscreen. Our best holiday was when we drove to Rome a couple of years ago. I couldn't believe it that our 1965 bus made it to Rome & back in 2 weeks... we took so much stuff in preparation for a break down!! lol

                          Anne, your sight is great and your jewellery is amazing, I wish I could make stuff like that! I make bead and wire jewellery and am just finishing off my own website. It's scary, isn't it?

                          Just out of interest how did you get into making the dichroic glass, i'd really like to try out some new techniques and I love the effect this glass has?

                          Good luck with your new site!

                            Hi Karen,

                            Thanks for your comments. It really is giving me a confidence boost having some lovely replies from people. I don't know why, but I was really worried at first what people would think of my jewellery.

                            I started working with glass last year. I had tried a few crafty things out, but I was instantly hooked when I started fusing glass. I had seen dichroic glass for sale on some websites and just loved the sparkly colours. I bought a kiln to make silver jewellery with and then realised I could fuse glass in there too... and one thing lead to another...

                            I think I upgraded my kiln within a month of buying my first kiln! My first kiln was a very small kiln, but enough to get me hooked. Do you have a kiln already? Good luck with your website. I will definately check it out when it's finished.
