Wow, I dreamed that one day I would turn my Etsy shop into my own online store and it's finally a reality! It is no small feat to get this all going, but I am chipping away at it one small step at a time, much the way Pretty Sensitive Ears has grown over the past 8 years. You get to wear many hats ;) Designer, Manufacturer, Photographer, Data Entry, Web Designer, Marketer, Social Media Manager, etc. A lot of work and countless hours.
It's pretty fulfilling to see my passion blooming though. I look back and see little hints in my past that this was coming in my life. Fascination with rocks as a kid, creating my own clay jewelry and selling it through a family friend as a teen, taking programming classes in college, working on website maintenance in a part time job, a degree in engineering, working with niobium and titanium metals in my engineering profession, being a hands on learner, and always loving art and color. Lastly, having sensitive ears myself!
Keep an eye on this site as it continues to bloom and grow. And keep an eye out for new hypoallergenic styles for earrings for sensitive ears. I've got some new ideas churning in this mind of mine.
