What an interesting post...I am glad I have starting coming over to wearable art. I have been making jewelry for 2 years and just recently started lampworking. Let me tell you it so much fun!!!
I am loving it, but have started to sell my sets on eBay due to too many beads, but was only doing what is appealing to me and my target. It is good to get an understanding of what others like. Believe it or not, I work in an office setting and people prefer the bumpy texture beads, go figure
I have only sold 3 sets. My question for you is what makes you buy from an artist that you are unfamilar with. There are so many amazing lampworkers out there, it is hard to get known out there. Of course I am trying to provide great customer service, and I am doing the freeby beads (not sure if my buyers know as they may not have received them yet
). Other pointer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!!
