I need a little help here. I am going to Tucson, and am trying to get as much stock as I can ready to go. However, I need to pay for my hotel room (among other thingss!) and need to post another bead on Ebay. My last bead did REALLY WELL!!!!!! I am so STOKED!!!!!!! WOW! I was amazed!!! At any rate, I want to put up a bead that might have a chance to do really well. I would put up more than one, but as I am tryting to take a ton of beads, I have to limit my self to one bead. So, if you would be so kind, take a look at the following beads and let me know what you think might do well on ebay this week. I am hoping your crystal balls are in fine working order!!! Let me know!! And, if you feel the need to critique, fire away! At this point I need all of the help I can get!
Thank you all ahead of time!!

Wow!!! Are you sure you don't want to save yourself the effort of travelling and just put them ALL on eBay? :D What gorgeous yummy beads!

My crystal ball is cracked, but I'd definitely bid on this one if it were up for auction!

Gotta agree with Andreajane's choice. All the beads are beauties but the peach fossil one made me sigh with beadlust. Go for it!

LOL Sorry, I've tried but I can't choose just one.
It's a hopeless deadlock between :clap: 5, 6, 7, 9, and 10. :clap:

I also liek the very first one, but choosing one is almost impossible - they are all gorgeous, but I have 3 or 4 that I think would do really well.

Kimberly,
Why would you do this to me, a person who has no decision making skills? I nearly blew a gasket trying to pick just one. I really need to see them in person to make a good decision. Send them to me and I'll let you know. :evil: Seriously, I think they'd all do very well. Beautiful beads, all of them. I wish I still lived in Az I'd go see them in person then pick one for my very own. :D
I'm new to beadmaking and don't sell them yet so my opinion is not an experienced one, it's a tough choice, but if you were to hold me down and threaten to spit a loogie in my eye if I didn't choose :rolleyes: I'd have to say this one. :D

How the heck do you get these babies of the mandrel by the way?

Allthough they all are very nice, I especially like the last bead in the first group.

I like #3 pink in the first group - but then I'm a color junkie. That one jumped right out at me, color & design & balance. Good luck! *s*

Lara
01-09-2005, 07:46 PM
Kim they are all so pretty. I like the very first one of the first group and the last one of the last 2 groups. Turquoise is "in" again.

Very hard decision, but if I had to choose just one it would be #4 in the second lot. Just kinda jumped out at me.

We both agree the amber one with the black and white twisties. :D

These are phenominal! Love the colors, shapes. and patterns in all.

GOOD LUCK ON EBAY AND AT TUSCON! :wave:

Man Kimberley -- this is hard work.. . They are all so gorgeous. .. After much deliberation, and if I could only have ONE, I would choose this one:

Yes, sigh, all very gorgeous! My choices are the mainly pink one in the first group then the amber/black one (love that one too). However, right now, when it is cold and dreary out (at least where I live), the bright colors really grab my attention. The other, as gorgeous as it is, makes me think fall and right now I want to think spring. Either, any and all outta bring it beacoup bucks. Good Luck!

I really hate to have to tell you this, Kimberly...but...that is the ugliest bead I have ever seen & I am afraid you absolutely must send it to me immediately for destruction! Or if you can't send that one, just send any of the others....after all, it's the thought that counts, right?

biaggiabeader
01-09-2005, 09:04 PM
They are all so wonderful, but my favorite is this one, for sure! The colors are just awesome! How did you do that???? Good luck! (If the pic doesn't load...Andreas choice)

Well, my two personal favorites are "blackfeather1wc" (top upper right pic in first post)- and the coral w/twisties one that everyone else is liking. YUMMMYUMMMM!!!!!

They're all beautiful! Can't wait to see everyone when the show comes to town!

I'm going to join the pack and say that the one with the twistie is the bead for the 'Bay!

They're all fab, but that one is particularly striking in the photo...and that's what sells!

Hi Kimberly -- Well, I trotted myself over to eBay to bid...it's set up as a seven-day auction but the description says it's a three-day. I'm not sure about this, but I think once someone bids you can't change the time length of the listing. Do you want it to stay a 7-day auction?

Andrea

Kimberly Affleck
01-09-2005, 09:48 PM
Thank you! I wanted it to be a 7-day. I'll run over and change it!!!!!!!!

I also say go for this one. This is a really cool looking bead.

Crap, I hope I didn't screw anything up. I bid on it before I read this post and saw about the auction times. If I can do something to help you with changing it, let me know.

01-09-2005, 09:52 PM
Kimberly they are all gorgeous. I wish you the best of luck at Tuscon! I still think you are gonna blow their socks off!

Kimberly Affleck
01-09-2005, 09:54 PM
LOL! I thought I would make it in time, but I didn't!!! Oh well, I just added to the description and that should be fine! Serves me right for trying to take the "easy" way out and use the previous auction's template! Aimee, don't worry. I am just delighted that you bid!!! Thank you!

I can't wait to seem them in person in Tucson. Especially the electroplated (sp?) ones. Those look too cool.

kandice
01-09-2005, 10:07 PM
Only one???? Oh, the horror of having to choose.....

I love all of the beads, but the ones that speak to me are the black based ones with the bright colors and gold aventurine decoration. The first two beads in the first group and the first two in the last group. Any of those would get a bid from me. :)

01-09-2005, 11:44 PM
I'm SO glad you didn't put a PINK one up on ebay. I want to choose from them when I get to Tucson!!!

Great, inspiring work.

Thanks for sharing...Julie

Wow Kimberly! You never stop knocking my socks off. Every time I look at your pictures I'm doomed to a day of being barefoot! :D

I'm late, but my input would be Black scroll. Very elegant.

But peach fossil should have just come straight to me and not gone to the bay. :p

Hey there Kim! I was in your neck of the woods in early December! Went to Muckelshoot native casino for the very first time and got blasted on 3 lil glasses of wine! Saw Elvis, Michael Jackson and Madonna. Got a kiss from Elvis... now I can stand listening to his songs on the radio! LOL :D

Any... I LOVE all your bi-cones! It was very hard to choose one.. but this one http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=207208 (dark black or plum with the 3 gold stringer rings) was my fave! Hope to see many more of your inspiring beads!
