So what does it take for 50 new designs to be launched in the online store? Loads and loads of work, that’s for sure. So I’m completely delighted to announce that I’ve managed to jump all the hoops needed to bring to you an entirely new collection of ceramic jewellery in brooches and necklaces, and in a range of colours too.

The Realities of a Creative Small Businesses Online
If you’re wanting to understand what’s involved in having your own creative business here’s a behind the scenes insight with these latest product updates:
Anyone with their own small creative business and a website knows how all consuming it can be to update an entire new range of designs.
For me it’s involved photography lessons from one of my treasured market family (that took a day, partly because we just played in her beautiful studio!) and finding the right equipment for me to setup a version of her little photography studio.
I then started learning new features on my camera and taking test photos. Next was learning more skills on my laptop for editing the photos. Then a day was lost to technical gremlins (stupid, nasty buggers they can be!).
Once sorted, it was about uploading the photos to the backend of the website and starting to create and write the products, their descriptions and realising I needed to more clearly demonstrate the range of colours available – more photos and editing and uploading.
I ended up writing a table listing the products, the photos needed and each stage so I could just mark it off and see where the holes were. This also made it a whole lot more satisfying and motivating for me.
Determination Won the Day
It all went on for weeks because I still need to make my work, go to market and the studio and the normal hurly burly. But determination won the day and I’m thankful for that.
Yes, there’s more to do and there’s a plan for it so hopefully you’ll enjoy those changes to the website too. I keep telling myself it is all about phases, taking one step at a time.
