a rose bombing

Posted on

ya ya…i said i wouldnt leave it this long again. i should stop making promises. promises are made to be broken anyway arent they?

 

ive been busy with stuff over here, jewellerywithaheart.wordpress.com.

id love your opinions!

also, ive been super busy organizing a community art project, the Art Bomb Project, to take place during our town’s annual street festival, Ennis Street Festival.

we’ve had over 30 donated works of art and craft come in to us to bomb our lovely town. ive created a few pieces, an earring/bracelet set, a purple crochet rose on a background of crochet chains in black and white, and three acrylic paintings…trying my hand at something new. the last time i sat down to paint something was in art class in grade 8. Im a math&science girl at heart so all of this creative arty business is very new to me.

so here are my contributions in all their glory!

bespoke jewellery…to make or not to make

Posted on

i enjoy the idea of making something specifically for one person. that they can participate in the creation of the item theyre going to wear.

the colours the style, the choice. but it frightens me a bit. maybe im just jaded from all of my past customer service positions. but some clients can be overly fussy and honestly, a pain in the ass. and i think creating custom made pieces can only entice those kinds of people to your business. then i think am i limiting myself in business by not making more custom jewellery?

i dont advertise freely that i make custom pieces, but i will. it expands my creativity, which i welcome! im just held back by the chance of having to deal with nightmare customers.

but i also enjoy making what i want to make and that moment when someone sees my creation and wants it for themselves. thats a great moment.

 

do you make bespoke anything? what are your experiences?
