    Grains of Glass Open Studio WILL BE opening its own Enamel Artist Shopping site for those artists who have reached a professional level. This is in no way a competition with Amazon or Etsy, but another venue in which to distinguish Enamel Art from the marketplace of a multitude of hand crafts.


    In keeping with the "not for profit" direction that Grains of Glass has followed to support the hard working artists, the small percentage (2.5%) to be charged for each SALE of artist's artwork will go to support the store and the web site. No posting fees, no monthly charges. Grains of Glass is providing the space, you will build your own store, be responsible for your own shipping and billing and customer care. I will work like crazy with public relations.



    Today, I am rolling up my sleeves, and sitting down with my web pro, Garfield, to begin the construction. Your feedback is appreciated.
