Thanks Kathy!! M working on it for a while now but due to the wholesale shop being quite far from my home it needs time and day for me to go as i cant go alone... otherwise i would have completed my curtains (grumbles)
Those are beautiful necklace/earring combos! That being said, I hope your prices are covering cost of materials plus time. Some of those combos should be worth more than the $20 I am seeing.
I want the tribble necklace too!
I have been blessed to find beads and findings at ridiculous prices and have built up an immense stash (understatement), so my prices reflect that savings to the customer which is very much appreciated here in our small tourist dependent town.. We have seen a significant drop in tourism because of the high gasoline prices and poor economy, so the locals and lucky tourists that do come reap the benefits of the low prices.
Thanks for your input.
Ps. The tribble necklace has been sold and I only have one of the mirrored earthenware beads left, so no more of that exact necklace, although since I make the tribbles myself, I will be making something similar in the future. :)
Vilcat - I really like your designs. The Sodalite necklace in one of your earlier posts looks very much like a set I recently made!! I really can't pick a favorite - your designs are all great. I especially like some of your "tribal" looking designs. I do agree with Val and a couple of other posts - your prices are too low for the quality of work that you do. Even if you are able to purchase your beads inexpensively, you still need to pay yourself for your design and execution time. Keep up the great work and keep posting pix - love to see them.
That top necklace looks FIERCE! How do you keep youself from getting poked?(lol) I really like the one wth the jaguar!
I like the ivory one in the last picture, specially. In the second picture- are those Bajoran cuff/earrings?
