Every Day in May, 8, Trishna Jewelry

A little bittersweet for me, the earrings are some of the first I made for myself,
and then for my new fledgling jewelry company, Trishna Jewelry.
They were laying on my desk the day I had to do this prompt!

Trishna was built on the premise that you can wear meaningful iconography
day in and day out and be fashionable.  I had a good run!

I closed Trishna officially May 1, a bit early due to Etsy’s new crazy requirements
to do business… I was unwilling to send my photo id and ss# over the internet
to be stored by Etsy when in fact I do not intend to ever use Etsy as a transaction institution… quite happy with PayPal, and Etsy has enough glitches in
daily transactions that I don’t trust them to be secure with my information.
We all have to take chances, and I prefer not to trust those for no real reason.

I also closed my Etsy art page.
I will have a new website that sells up in the next month or so.
You’ll hear all about it!

For the Camino.

  1. I had no idea Etsy required that of its sellers. They ought to know better about online security and identity theft than to ask for such critical pieces of personal information.


    • It is a new requirement. Etsy has always let us choose who we wanted as a clearing house for transactions, and I chose PayPal. No one is perfect, but I have found their dispute resolution to be fast and fair. Etsy says they have three months to resolve disputes. AACK! But as of April, they require everyone to give info as if we are going to use them — even when we will not. Many sellers are leaving, many are buying the idea that every place asks this. I’ve not had anyone ask for picture id, banking info, SS#, and so forth over the internet. Ever. And Etsy has too many online problems for me to ever trust them with that kind of security issue.
