“Things to be afraid of when”


Description from N Taylor: Three things I fear when designing: First that I am only designing for me. I don't wear Red so I don't design with it. The holidays force me put it in. Second the cost when I am finished. Just because I love it doesn't mean anyone else can afford it. And last, the piece that comes back...Although I love it Pyrite breaks when not protected, wearer gain or lose weight and the worse "can you change this one thing?". To the last my answer is no "as is" means you buy you love.

    This is so true. I have a couple of pieces that will be going into my craft show, that will probably be to expensive. They have a lot of artist beads in them, and some people just don’t get that with artist beads comes a cost with it. I also notice the loss or gain of weight can be a big factor in how the piece lays on the person. For example, I’m not big chested so pieces will lay flat on me, where my friend is and they don’t seem to fit well on her. Eg.. my butterfly necklace that is in the design gallery. You have designed a great pick for your fear. Love it!

    ditto! I try very hard to fit people’s demands but you also have to listen to your spirit or it is no longer your art.

    Ditto and ditto, Becky and Wanda!
    I have the same concern about using Artist beads. So it becomes a struggle between doing what your heart tells you and what practicality will allow. sigh….. :-(
