Open for business

Yo-Yo’s etsy shop, Smashing for Pretty, is now open for business!


Over the past week we’ve been smashing, drilling, crafting, photographing, and posting up a blue streak. Jump rings and lobster clasps are en route to our front door. Broken drill bits and miss-smashed coins (yes, it’s possible) litter the basement floor.

We’re on a steep learning curve but most (I hope?) of the kinks are worked out (to the best of our novice abilities) and we’re ready to roll. Er, sell.


Check it out and give us feedback, suggestions, inspiration. We’re all ears.

And bandaged fingers. ‘Cause certain brilliant mamas decide to hold the stinkin’ coin with one hand while hammer-whacking it with the other.

Signed,
An Improbable Jeweler
