He has been making jewelry for more than 15 years.
“My goal is for people to love the pieces they buy and for them to feel good wearing them,” says Nathan A., the Bolingbrook owner of an Etsy store called JewelryCoffers.
He is selling Swarovski Green Crystal Drop Earrings now for $24. And he is looking for a boost in word-of-mouth marketing from his customers.
“If they refer me to their friends, that is nice, too,” he said.
As for his list of favorite materials, I can say this: I Found it on Etsy.
The list includes Swarovski crystal and a number of semi-precious stones, running the gamut from crystal, jade, rose quartz, turquoise and jasper to Aventurine, Labradorite, Onyx, Pearls, Carnelian and Serpentine.
Nathan A. joined Etsy in June of 2011.
