Got my website up and running + im on etsy and artfire

Been a very tough week, however there is a bit of silver lining: I finally got my website up and running as well as got some stuff on both etsy and artfire! I couldnt decide whether to use etsy OR artfire, so i chose both.
Hope you like it and thanks for reading!

So far, reactions have been incredibly positive, and im getting a lot of great feedback! I've already had an offer from austrailia about buying some of my stuff, and I'm incredibly exited!

testing the waters.

well here we go! my first attempt at blogging and truth be told, it's a bit unnerving. this being said, i've gotta tell myself that if you're reading this either you're interested in reading this or you horribly misclicked!

i'll lay out some particulars:
my name is chris brown (yes... just like the famous r&b star) and im starting this blog to go along with the opening of my business 'five points glass'. im 17, a senior at dowling catholic high school, and live in des moines, iowa.

the name five points glass leaves little to the imagination as to the medium i use. i almost exclusively make (and hopefully sell) glass -- jewelry/functionals/etc, through a process called lampworking/flameworking/torchworking.

im in the process of finishing up my website, but thought it would be best to have a blog post already made when the website first came out

thanks for reading, and hope i havent bored you too bad
