    Unique piece – looks like it might have been worn by a queens some centuries ago. I believe there are rhinestone pieces as well as pearl and chain. Beautiful!

    I just LOVE your designs! This has a classical look, but the “messy” chain makes it contemporary — and very Danish I think! Your style is so unique, it would even be difficult to imitate!
    Have been missing a lot of your designs lately — BUSY — and had a peep at your Design page: absolutely LOVED the black version of this too! WOW!
    (BTW, the crystal rondelles between the pearls look a bit like Panduro?! ;-) I have some similar…)

    Thank you for all your encouraging comments.

    Frankly I am quite down about the lack of interese my pieces get on Etsy.

    Not many people seem to like them…it sucks.

    I know I sound like a cry-baby….sorry :-/

    This looks very Victorian…great piece! Don’t get discouraged. Everyone has different tastes and likes….just keep doing what you love! I am also a professional watercolorist…sometimes my paintings sit in the gallery for months! You just never know, it’s a competitive business!

    Rikke (yes, I had a peep at yur Etsy page yesterday…), don’t feel down! I agree with Beadaholic: do what you love, and concentrate on that! Another piece of advice: try to find several places to sell! I have some stuff at my hairdresser’s (she doesnt take any provision!), and they’ve been selling so-so (=not at all lately…). But then I sold most of it at the city fair in May! And then I sell at a crafts place open only in summer, with a completely different clientele, and have some bracelets at an expensive “lifestyle” shop in another town. I’ve been selling only for a year, and noticed that it pays to build your local reputation, and this is not necessarily fast, especially if you have a job too… And then there is the conflict between your time-consuming hobby and your employer to consider… but gradually “coming out of the cupboard” in that direction has so far been only positive!
    You have such an unique talent, don’t give up!

    Thank you Monica for your very good advice.

    I have started looking into what possibilities I have of selling my jewelry localy and not just on etsy and a Danish site called trendsales. It just takes a lot of time finding the right Places…and often it is by coincident that you find the right laces.

    I think I am so impatient because I am currently on a sickleave and would really like to create a living for myself as independant – an not have an employer.

    The prospects of that are just really far away with just 1 sale….BUT when I started I had only 2 items in my shop, and I know have having more item is crucial….So I have to be patient, I know that :-) )

    I just went to your shop and I like the look of it, did you try to make Treasuries to get you name around and to get more followers, Etsy is not a miracle that just happens, you have to work hard at promoting, something I lack, but I also have not much time as my real job is consuming at least 10 hrs a day of my time. I just love beading and I produce to many pieces, so this started sort of paying for some of my supplies, but is definitely not a source of income for me :D

    This is a beautiful work of art! Classy but with a modern edge!

    One place you might investigate is museum gift shops. I consign pieces at a local art museum (not a really big museum) in their gift shop. My more “way out” designs do quite well there. Your pieces are very distinct and would probably appeal to the more “artsy” group. Your work is unusual and definitely one of a kind. Don’t give up. Somewhere there is a place that is just right. :D
