Drops of autumn...




...is the name of one of the new necklaces I've made, which is on its way to my shop.
Hand felted beads, plus seed beads, glass, wood, ceramic and fimo beads. So many things, all in the same tone of colors, yet simple and elegant.
I'm really enyoing making this necklaces... so soothing...as a matter of fact my kid smeared half a jar of nutella on the couch while I was doing this one, and I didn't even notice. I was in another world... Doesn't make me sound too good, does it?





The couch will survive...ad so did the kid :)

Surely, bead addiction exist....Why I don't know but your pictures doesn't appear and the title is so inspiring...by the way, can you tell me a little bit about dawanda and etsy?

Marian said...

Yvette! I dont know about the pics... I can see them... maybe try again?? Otherwise, if you click in the links of my shop there, you can see them.

Dawanda and Etsy would be a great place for you too. They are basically e-commerce platforms:Etsy is american, so everythig is dealt with in dollars and Dawanda is European, started in Germany, so everything is dealt with in euros. IN Dawanda you have different languages to choose from: english, french or german. Ussually people choose one language but still list their items for sell in all 3...if possible. The more languages, the more poeple will see your stuff (there is poeple from all around the world too...so languages are not a limiting thing). So basically you list stuff (check my shop for an idea... or any shop there) and other people see it, buy it... you pack it up and send it! That's it!
It's a way of making your hobby pay for itself a bit...and its fun. You meet people, etc. Ive made it a bit my job so im always busy with it.There is a lot of PR involved... there are so many shops and sellers that you have to make your rounds to get noticed...but... you know, if you take it slowly and have patience... it can turn into something...
