My dearest friend, The Noisy Plume, is celebrating her 1 year anniversary today.
Here's how I remember The Plume starting...
I had always admired a certain Big Egg necklace
that Jillian had made. She had expressed to me the desire to make jewelry, but of course was a bit nervous. It's always hard to put yourself out there for people to critique. This Big Egg necklace was brought with us on our trip to Europe. Every time anyone asked what we did I promptly answered for both of us, "I am a photographer and Jillian makes fantabulous jewelry!". After arriving home Jillian, very timidly, dipped her foot into the Etsy pool. They could hardly believe it when right away she sold her Big Egg necklace (but I could believe it!). Her shop grew wings and flew from that point on.
I am ever so proud! And while I never would have thought that she would be near 900 pieces sold within her first year, I am not surprised. Not only is her jewelry stunning, but her writings are an inspiration.
I love you my dear!
So... all this is said so you will visit her blog! She is giving away a few pieces and their is free shipping on all of her items for today only. Enjoy!
