I have noticed that it is really hard to find anyone with "extra money". I have noticed that people are shopping very carefully and try to find gifts that will be useful but also unique, special, hand-made. To that end, I have started to create items that are not necessarily meant to be worn.
I know that I love to go to places, retail and otherwise, and find that one thing that I want to just have in my house, car, or work environment. There is always some little glass thing that catches my eye that I don't have a USE for really. I just like it and want to see it. There are some things I put out all year because I love them or the person who gave them to me or the memory attached to it, even if it is a snowman in July.
I am creating work that could be used as a key chain or pendant but also as a pull on a ceiling fan. I have them on my main website. Check them out!! If you like something, drop me an email. I would love to make these kinds of things for special occasions so it is my hope that I price items for today's economy. I negotiate prices at craft shows all of the time because i know that there is only so much money to spare but that we all like something new and different.
I will post more photos as I create more items in the "Odds and Ends" category!!!
