Admiration Society - PoleStar Jewelry


I guess I could easily say, there are a large number of true true artisans on Etsy, there are a gazillion crafters and well, face it, a few garage sales here and there. I am featuring one artisan today that I feel excels in a number of ways. Drum roll please......


Today, I want to direct you to PoleStar Jewelry www.polestar.etsy.com. Not only does this artist make lovely work but her website/shop is well designed and navigates easily. The thing that I believe makes her work stand out is her photography. Time and time again in labs and forums people inquire and downright whine about photography. Well kiddos, take a look at this for an example of what to do to make your designs shine brightly.

This shop has been open for a little over a year now and she has made over 1400 sales. Now take that to the bank! There are items in the shop that have over 2600 views and the sales to match those numbers. I think if you would take the time to really look over this shop and not only take away the photography bit but also the inspiration this shop exudes. And to top it, she is humble (note the welcoming message about how she is honored to have you visit).

I'm sure after browsing around in PoleStar you will easily see why I have singled out this artisan today as the feature inspiration of my blog. Kudos to you and many wishes for continued success.
