As promised, I’ve begun loading jewellery into my primary Etsy shop, Tooaquarius. My other Etsy shop, FieldAndFable, will get different artwork loaded into it as part of an experiment in further mediums and working with fellow artists.
This is part of my ongoing experiment with Etsy. My bead shop is well established and should do well with other items added in as long as they remain organized and curated correctly. I’d like to use my FieldAndFable shop to explore the broadening Etsy rules for collaborative and designer art, working primarily with local artists (as I do in my physical shop, Field and Fable).
It’s also a way to keep my brands separate. Tooaquarius is my personal work and has followed me through several houses, two different cities, and just about twenty years of my life. Field and Fable is tied to a physical concept – a brick and mortar shop primarily showcasing the work of regional artists – which I expect will evolve as time goes on.
