I had my shop on Etsy for less than a year and only one item sold—a card—for $12 and to a friend. There were lots of my metallic microsculptures on view but only four cat hair necklaces.
Out of the blue it happened, a SALE! And not one of my metallic necklaces BUT one of my quirky but elegant cat hair necklaces!!! The necklace was the second piece I made from cat hair and it sold to a lady in the Bay Area for $130. This happened at the end of June.
Then, another SALE!! On October 1st, the day after the TODAY Show’s “Things That Make You Go Hmm”, I sold not the featured necklace, but this beautiful necklace to a lady in Indiana for $220.
AND Another!!! On November 4th the featured necklace on the TODAY show sold to a lady in Michigan, it’s price—$95.
Thanks internet!——————Because there IS a market for jewelry made from cat hair and metal!
