Musings and Questions
I broke down and finally ordered a light box this weekend. I can not wait until it comes in! I hope it brings a huge change to any photos that I take of the items I create. Do you have a light box? I also signed up for Super Beadwork Magazine! I can't wait to get my first issue in and see what I can create out of it.
I have decided that I have Beading ADHD. If I cannot sit down and make something in one setting I never go back and finish it. Although I have to wonder if maybe my taste has something to do with that as well. I prefer simple pieces that are small and not blingy or flashy so maybe that is part of it as well. I surf the net and etsy to see what others are creating and some of the pieces I find just blow me away. Something like this for example:
I found this on etsy at Thistle Dew For You . I love this but I just cannot see me ever being able to make something like this. There is no telling how many hours she put into this piece. And at $2500 will she ever sell it? Is there a market for beadwork at this price point? To me this seems more of a museum piece not something that someone would wear. But Hey! I have been wrong before lol. What do you think?
