A few of you know that the Santa Rosa Tubbs fire destroyed the Hunting Dragons Etsy shop.
The business cards? Gone. The packaging? Gone. The raw materials? Gone. The tools? Gone. The jewels in progress? Gone. The pieces I had yet to list? Gone. . .
I’ve had nine months of healing and introspection. It’s hard to start over, and it’s harder to decide what a fresh start should look like. I’ve spent years curating a collection and to have it disappear overnight is—well, crushing.
I like to think of myself as a positive person. In that light, I wanted to re-launch HuntingDragons but to make it a phoenix rising experience. I had to wait until I was ready.
Here’s my vision to begin:
It’s going to being small.
A few exceptional pieces of vintage and one or two personal creations.
It’s going to be precious and thoughtful.
I see stories in material items. I’ve always loved a good story. Some may come with one, some I may create.
It’s going to be about unique and eclectic.
Don’t expect more of the same. I’m creating one-off pieces and offering once-in-a-lifetime finds. Think about hunting dragons…
It’s going to be personal.
Every piece I will offer had hands on it, either in creation, re-creation or the hands that pass through the years.
Mark your calendars for August 26th. I’m launching with the full moon energy.
If you would like a preview, I’d love you to sign up to the left for my newsletter. Either email at huntingadragon at gmail dotcom or sign up to the right.
Newsletter followers will have a shop preview a few days before the launch.
