I think I'll start with "SOLD"

Sold is the subject for the day. Sold what you say? Sold this I reply.
But first a little of the work in progress.



And now the flower, almost finished

and finally the necklace that I sold

I took the advice of a mad snapper about wearing one of my necklaces to work. I actually wore two different ones. Of course on different days, not at the same time. Everyone said how nice but nothing much else. THEN, a couple weeks later one of the girls asked me if I could make a sunflower. I ran home, made one, went back to work and said yes I can make a sunflower. I took her in the necklace to show her and she bought it. Yeah me.

  1. Good for you. You could set up a shop and sell online too. Empress Bee does that and many of us buy her beautiful beads. Here's her link if you want to check it out. BEEds by Bee

    Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

  9. Ann you make such lovely things you should really sell them online. Perhaps start with a few on this blog and then build up your own online shop - or open up a joint online shop with someone else and perhaps agree to split the profits 50/50 (less hastle than working out who sells what) ... I think you should do marvellously! ... I'll watch this space. :)

  11. I've been telling you and telling you to sell some of your creations! I still think taking orders for quilled initials is a slam dunk - quilled initial on a necklace???

  12. snap edit scrap ETSY...I see it already.

    I agree the hardest part is the selling. I hate taking money {especially from friends and family} but we need supplies.

    yes MadSnapper is a smart cookie

  16. That's brilliant, Ann - what a result! The pendant looks great, and your photos provide a brilliant tutorial on how to get petals evenly spaced around a flower centre.
