Artist Profile: Rosemary Olson

olson-2We recently received a very nice email from one of our customers.  It simply read “Just a picture of what I use some of your glitter for.”

12 little words that made my day.

olsonolson-1We get emails like this all the time, because our customers know we love to live through their creative abilities and just love to see what they create with our products.

I also love the attention to detail that Rosemary gives to her art.

And on top of that, if I asked if I could use the photos in exchange for promoting her Etsy store, or website. Her reply. No need. She does not have an Etsy store, is not trying to build a big huge website or drive users to her blog.

She just likes to create, and probably has loyal following in her region. And that is fine.

Because, this is what it is all about.  Being creative.

We are happy to know our customers on a first name basis. We are happy that we are not trying to compete with Walmart. We are happy that we have customers like Rosemary who puts quality ahead of profits and is doing something she loves. Just like us.

Send us your story. Send us your photos. We love to stay connected with you!

We found Yargo Creations from a comment on our Facebook page and so happy we did!  They are known for their Polymer clay inspirations and we are going to do some testing with them to see how our glitter does in the baking process… But for now, we have a wonderful, simple, elegant pendant that both features glitter, but without glittering…. Interesting and just spectacular!

Each wide-mouth jar holds 4oz of Glitter. Theis jar is unique as it makes it so easy to take out just a pinch or to replace any unused Glitter.

Yes, each jar is labeled for retail sales, ready to be displayed in your shop or store front.

4) Are you selling both retail and wholesale?

Yes, The retail price for a 4 oz jar is $18.95. We will be selling these jars on our website and other proprieties we manage, but always at the full retail price.

Wholesale accounts will be able to purchase by the case at substantial discounts from our retail price.

Each wholesale case contains 12 jars, and we are offering discount tiers for 3, 5 and 20 cases. And you can mix and match colors if you only need one case or less!

Yes, it really should not be used with kids, or anywhere kids can get into the product. Other than using good safe common sense practices, (keep away from eyes, do not eat, mix with food, use on children decorations, etc) there are no other risk or concerns.

9) Can it be used outside?

No, we do not recommend using the glitters in direct sunlight. The UV rays will cause the colors to fade rather quickly.
