“Ode to Victoria”


Description from Julie Shane: I'm simply obsessed with this Victoria bead from Unicorne. I want to buy dozens and make a fabulous chunky shiny necklace. Reality insists I buy a few and dress them up with ribbons and silver and a bit of sparkle.

    I know–the expense! Do show us what you make!! i am currently making things for the one show I do and I keep thinking “how do I price this when it cost me so much???” I have some cool pieces (purchased from LB :) ) but my people don’t understand that those cute standout parts are the pricey ones!!

    Becky: what if… You display several of the special/pricey pieces on a little silver tray or mirrored tray. Place a pretty picture frame next to the tray with the message: “These really special pieces create really special jewelry.” The people who visit you will see “special” and will subliminally know they are worth more and so the jewelry will cost a little more… but it’s okay because special and it’s worth it.

    What an elegant pick. I hear you about the unicorne beads. Love them but am only going to get my hands on them when they make POD!

    The components in this help the Unicorne bead shine beautifully — buy a few or many — they will be stunning!! Do post a pic. Great pick!

    I’m glad you featured that bead. It really is spectacular. It would be pretty with the ribbon and some sparklies.
