Whether you’re new to our jewelry or a returning customer, welcome! The purpose of today’s blog entry is to update everyone on what’s been going on behind the scenes of Cinderella Lucinda.
Groom and I started creating this whimsical line of jewelry back in 1991 and we were based in Eugene, Oregon. Working from our home studio and traveling around the Pacific Northwest, we exhibited at art fairs and festivals, old school style. Meaning, we made stuff and sold it. When we started, there was no Internet or a need for websites or social media.
However, the world is changing and we must adapt. After years of people requesting that we take photos of our work and post online, we have finally done it. After Christmas, we are planning to update the website and add shopping cart technology.
For now though, the prices of our pins, earrings and necklaces are listed and we’ll be adding new pieces as they are created. Just contact us to purchase the items that catch your eye.
We’re also making the space for adding other products and services…
Two years ago, in 2011, we were Inspired to move to Portland. We answered the call and everything fell beautifully into place by the beginning of 2012. That meant we had to give up our wonderful booth spaces at both the Eugene Saturday Market and the Holiday Market. We miss our friends and loyal customers more than we could possibly have anticipated, yet we are also in love with our new home base in Portland.
Designing jewelry from home for over two decades has afforded us a certain freedom and lifestyle. Yet my spirit is urging me to do more. To explore what that might be, we took 2013 off to investigate. We’re on a personal vision quest and so far, it’s taken us to Florida, San Diego and Vancouver, BC. We’ve been diligently studying, taking lots of classes, and I’ve expanded my tool box to include getting certification as a Life Coach and a Passion Test Facilitator -- but that’s another story.
So while we’re also fine tuning other outlets for our creativity and passions, we realized how much this jewelry is a part of our lives. Ironically, no matter where we’ve gone, what we’ve tried, who we’ve met, the message is always the same: “Don’t quit making the jewelry!!!”
So for now, we’re opening our online store and we thank you for shopping this site.
