Brown Butterfly Necklace

About this design:

Hey everybody!
This piece is for the design gallery, but I also have a proposition for all of you. iam getting set for the holidays on Etsy, and I wanted to include a free gift with all purchases. I was wondering if I could have some input from you limabeaders. You have such good ideas! I also posted it on my blog at if you have any questions. I am open to any ideas!

Thank you!

    Thank you!

    Sonja: I was thinking of something like a free pair of my cheaper earrings, a bunch of beads I don’t use anymore (for the jewelry makers), or something small. I don’t know if I should set an amount you’d have to spend to get a free gift. Let me know what you think!

    You could issue a coupon for a peecentage off on the next purchase or buy 3 get one free for earrings. Perhaps some Hershey Kisses or Holiday M&M’s. You don’t say how much you would allot. BTW the butterfly is very lovely!

    Lovely necklace…I love the butterfly! :D
    As for the gift idea, this may sound a little crazy, but I have been making “designer” paper clips! (I was a little bored at work one day and had my trusty round nose pliers and some stray small beads in my purse.) I just straightened out the outside straight piece, started bending it into various shapes, and added a bead or two into the bends. My co-workers love them, and I started attaching them to the bags I put jewelry in when I sell a piece. Also good to attach to a business card. Very inexpensive, but I have also been told, very clever! (Just goes to show what boredom can produce!) ;)

    Deb D:

    Thank you for your idea! It sounds like a fun little way to say thanks or even just as an add on. I love the business card idea as well! Iam going to steal your ideas, if you don’t mind, but I won’t sell them. They are going to stay a freebie! Thanks again!

Add your thoughts!
