“Beautiful???”

 

Description from Crazy Chick Frida: When reading peoples product description over their handmade jewlery for example on etzy, people often write for ex: "beautiful handmade necklace". I have a hard time to describe my own stuff like that because I belive it's in the eye of the viewer... If I open my shop and doesn't write like that, is that bad for business or? I think, for bussiness, what I belive my piece is, is irrelevant...

    You have amazing insight into English, Frida ! Like you, I find it a little silly to describe one’s own work as “beautiful”. I think most people ignore that description and are more interested in the details of the piece.
    And you need no question mark on this pick – - it is indeed, “beautiful” !

    Yes, this is beautiful, Frida. I agree with Paula on describing a piece. I like to focus on what inspired me, and by doing that you can refer to something being beautiful without directly saying your piece is beautiful. Besides, in my opinion all of your work reflects how very talented and artistic you are. :D

    This pick is definitely beautiful!
    I agree that it is strange when to use the word “beautiful” in a description. I would hope that the artist thinks their own work is beautiful and should let their work speak for itself. It’s not like they would say “please buy my ugly jewelry”. ;)

    I don’t just ignore that piece when the creator calls it “beautiful”, I also purposely do not buy that piece or ever go back to the vendor’s shop. I think you should be talking about what inspired it–like maybe a specific bead, a focal, a ribbon, a feeling, the weather, your pets, etc. I do not want the creator to tell me how gorgeous they think their work is because I would like to decide its beauty and its worth to me for myself. I think just the fact that you think it is good enough to post for sale is enough for the buyer to know you have confidence in your work and your talent.
    That’s just how I feel. I may really love a piece I have made but I know you might think “what WAS she thinking??” :) so I would not presume to call it beautiful. Tell us about yourself in your designs. You are a beautiful person with a beautiful, caring, creative mind. That is what I want to see–like Paula said–what inspired you! :)

    Sermon is over. :) I do think this combo is BEAUTIFUL!!! :)

    AMEN girls :D I agree with all of you! Thank you!

    Thanks for the compliments, blushing.

    I wouldn’t and I will not write what I belive my design is. What inspired me is a totally dif. thing or which bead I like, etc. Mostly I was interessted if it was some kind of business logic to it. I’m like Becky, not wanting to buy the piece… Thats also why I wonder why people use “beautiful necklace” etc. Thought it might be some American stuff LOL

    Well I’m kind of on the fence about it. I haven’t personally described anything as beautiful. But I felt like it when I made my Mom’s waterlilies necklace. Because I look at I and I’m amazed I made it. I do personally like when someone describes the different beads and stones as beautiful more than the actual finished product. But from a retail advertising viewpoint…it is good for sales to actually describe your product as attractive. Car makers do, designers do, fine jewelers do, furniture makers do. There is.a store on Etsy I window shop all the time. She always describes her pieces as beautiful and she should because they are.

    I forgot to say this pick is beautiful Frida.

    Thank you Deb :D

    Of course one can think that ones design is beautiful, and you can mention it like: I did this for my mon and I think it become beautiful, nothing wrong with that.
    For me though when it comes to selling I dont like to tell the customer that this is beautiful… It’s up to them what they belive it to be.
    Maybe eaven worse if I did with my paintings..

    Asia says:

    WOW, so I’m not alone I always thought that it was quite snotty when someone was describing they own work as beautiful! I also would not buy something because of that, just like I do not buy products if they are overly advertised, I like to do my own homework when it comes to goods :D Love this pick BTW, it is beautiful :D

    Elis Mom says:

    I would not describe one of my designs as beautiful on a website, because I already know it is. I MAY say it’s unique and handmade with natural elements(unless it’s made of Lucite!) But then again, people should already know it’s unique…so, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    And, Frida, this pick IS beautiful!

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So a piece will speak for itself! Now, I will speak and say that your pick is beautiful, Frida!! The color combo is fab!

  12. Crazy Chick Frida
    Crazy Chick Frida says:

    Thank you!!

    I also think it’s a bit differnt to write: ” I think the result become beautiful”, than to start with: “this beautiful necklace…”

    To clarify: I absolutly think that one can write what one feel about ones design for ex here, and that includes the positive. Wich I think is dif. from writing it one someones nose, just to sell. It becomes to comersial. A lil bit humbleness is good at some points ;)

    :)
