I love stopping here before work everyday. You ladies put a smile on my face and make my day brighter. Thank you….off to work. No beading on weekends is a bummer. Love you all!
convince them if they buy now, their shopping is done….maybe offer to gift wrap it for them ”free” (I got 100 organza bags for cheap (like $3)from Nile corp, got a box of 100 gift boxes (maybe $16)from them too. Some shiny ribbon, and instant gift wrap (included in the price of the item, but all they need to know is the gift-wrapping is ”free”).
I am doing my first class next week. Any advice? I want to set up a very small spread but I will have a hard time deciding what to show. I will have all of my pieces with my so maybe they will want to look through them. Unfortunately I did not make any holiday pieces except for the angels. Any ideas on how to pitch them to buy things for Christmas gifts?
I thought this was interesting. I read an article on how to patina metal. I have never tried it. This was from ”beading Daily” I get a dail e-mail from them.
I’ve demonstrated this popular non-toxic patina in my newsletter, workshops, and in my ”Cool Tools and Hip Tips” column in Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist magazine. All you need is a peeled warm hard-cooked egg, your piece, and a ziplock bag. Put the warm egg and the piece in the bag, seal it tight, and let the bag sit on the countertop for a few hours. You’ll get a gentle, subtle patina from the sulfur of the egg yolk. Throw the egg away once you’ve got a color you like. Again, seal your patina with Krylon or wax (Renaissance, Butchers, or floor wax all work well, and a tiny dab will protect a large pendant or brooch).
