Jewellery Workshop & Etsy

I finally, finally, have a working website with shopping cart and payment gateway AND I have reinstated my Etsy account, giving the latter a trial run for 1 year only. 

I loved the old Etsy store, back in 2009 when I first joined the online selling universe. I sold a good bit through that channel, but I’ve been out of the game a long time, the platform has changed hands, changed shape, and I’m not quite yet sure I’m the fan I was 10 years ago.

UPDATE: I’ve closed my Etsy account. 1 year would be 9 months too long. So… www.alimatteini.com is where you can buy direct and contact me for commissions for jewellery, art and workshops.

I’ve done all this just in time to stock it with very little because I’ve been travelling since the 18th of December and I’ve sold almost everything I have here with me. The rest is in the studio in Santa Fiora and I need to photograph them with a little more care.

I’ll be back in Studio Santa Fiora from the 21st of March 2019, fully armed with new line designs and some ever-faves returning by popular demand.

Other News
25 -29 March I’ll be holding the first workshop of the year at the studio, and throughout April, May and June I’ll be holding other mini classes, too (art, lino cutting, safe marbling, jewellery, sculpture) in the evenings I’m not teaching English, and weekends.
If you happen to be in southern Tuscany in the coming months and would like to learn how to make a ring or or just come and play with colour or clay, drop me a line here or at the website.

    I’d have to agree with you about Etsy. It has become too diluted and huge. It worked well in the beginning years. I still have a shop there, but looking for alternatives.

      It’s all algorithmic now, like FB, based on followers and page interaction. In the earlier days they had paid advertising sprints and your items would be shown on the home page – you just had to be quick and book ahead for the space. I’ve been looking up a few alternatives – I hear good things about Shopify, and I’m looking at Storenvy.
