Today's Dilemma...

I have completed the pendant portion of "Island Dreamer". I LOVE how she turned out - and am excited that this is the first face piece I've created successfully from polymer clay on my own. My dilemma - what to do for a neck piece? Or do I keep her as she is, and give the potential buyer the option of creating their own, or just putting it on a chain or rope? Most of my jewelry buyers are NOT creators - hence the reason they are buying it already made. But since my goal for holiday gifts is to JUST do simple RAW bracelets, earrings and also JUST pendants - maybe this should be one of them. I want to be able to offer affordable items - but I don't want to give up my gift of creativity to do it. I would love to be able to sell my large, detailed full pieces - and I do OCCASSIONALLY. I'm just not in the right market for it right now. I may have an opportunity to sell them in an art museum in Flint, and I am toying with the idea of trying Etsy. Artfire did NOT do what I expected it to - but Etsy is INUNDATED with beaded jewelry artists right now. I'm not even sure I could keep up with the updating and maintenance. Lots to think about on top of getting ready for Florida in 16 days....and the thoughts will all wait until Mercury is again direct - TOMORROW. Thank goodness. Retrograde in Libra about kicked my butt this time....whew.....
Guess it's a good thing I brought home more than one project!

I love the Face! And I would say you should bead a simple necklace to go with it. I understand your dilemma with the higher priced pieces..the economy in Michigan is so poor right now. As far as ETSY goes, Ive had things for sale there for over a year now, and only sold 1 piece(to a woman in Midland of all places). I hear some of the other Etsy Beadweavers(great group to join for more traffic to your store) have sales often, but the secret is to have tons of merchandise in your shop, and constant promotion on many different venues(etsy, facebook, twitter, blogs, etc..). I just cant keep up with my 2 young kids, part time job, and the desire to bead in my free time!
