This has been my most popular piece. It is truly a bestseller. In the 9.5 months that my Etsy shop FromBrooklynWLove -> [ www.Etsy.com/shop/FromBrooklynWLove ] has been open, this specific ring has received over 15,505 views, 1,450 admirers, and has made it into 16 treasury lists. I have hand-made and sold over 400 of these Turquoise Bead Knuckle Rings. Although I offer this piece in gold, copper, silver, and rose gold, the metal mire colors that my buyers frequently order them in, is gold and silver. I have sold these rings domestically through Etsy to buyers all over the United States, and internationally all over the world, including places like England, Australia, Germany, United Arab Emirates, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, and the Netherlands, just to name a few. I even came across orders from countries I had never heard of.
~~One fun fact I learned to not freak out about when I had gotten my first UAE buyer, is that there are no zip codes in Abu Dhabi. Since the city is constantly in the motions of being built and being perfected, there are no set zip codes yet. Everything is by zone. The easiest way I was able to understand this seemingly foreign concept, was by thinking of it as how us Americans use PO Boxes. We have to go to a facility to pick up our mail that way, the same way they do, and all of a sudden, it is not so very foreign to pick up your personal mail and packages held in a mailing facility only walking distance from your home. ~~
Anyway, back to the awesome little Turquoise Bead Knuckle Ring. This piece is lightweight and very sturdy. (I use the thickest wire I possibly can that also lends a delicate look. No monstrosities here! See my last rant.) It is adjustable (the ends are neatly tucked away so that it won’t snag on clothing or skin), and hypoallergenic. (Nickel-free and also non-tarnish. It is the nickel in non-precious metals that cause unwanted skin reactions like blisters, rashes, and that weird green hue. The non-tarnish part means exactly what you think. The ring won’t tarnish. The wire that I use has a special coating on it that prevents the metal from oxidizing when it comes in contact with oxygen the way natural silver does.) It is also well made. I’m a perfectionist, so if it doesn’t look perfect, it’s not going out to my buyers. I will remake it if I have to.
I love making jewelry, especially this piece. It’s pretty convenient that it’s the most popular amongst my buyers, yet its the easiest and fastest piece for me to make. I also love wearing this piece. This specific design spurred many of my buyers to request that I create and list new rings with this same design, except with other bead colors and different finishes like matte, glossy, pearlescent, etc. Those also sell quite frequently too.
