The Shop: Finished Items

By this point you probably know I sell beads and canes on Etsy. I tend to talk about those a lot. A little less discussed is my Field and Fable shop on Etsy which has finished items in it. Not many because I am continually arguing with myself: do I leave them in a separate shop? Do I put them in my much larger and more successful other shop? And as a result, the poor thing is always neglected. Decisions!

The other reason my Field and Fable shop on Etsy tends to be neglected is that I initially wanted it to also have the work of other local artists in there. People whom I couldn’t convince to start their own Etsy shops for some reason. And technically, if I only “worked” for them, I could do that but I made the mistake of accurately describing my relationship with them and the Etsy rep vetoed me. So, to sell their work on Etsy, I may have to work up a different sort of agreement with them. And so on.

I hate when things are needlessly complicated for completely arbitrary reasons.

Feather Necklaces

Feather pendants

I really like polymer clay feather canes and even though I’m still tweaking Donna Kato’s excellent tutorial a bit to make my own… I’ve made a pile of feather beads. From each of the bead canes I kept a few larger, pendant sized feathers because I had some great long necklaces in mind to make with them. This week I finally buckled down and cranked a few out using longer lengths of chain, antiqued bronze coloured wired and some of the bits and bobs in my stash.

The first round of feather necklaces! Glass and stone mixed with antique brass tones. #polymerclay #beads #handmade #jewelrymaking #necklaces

These are mostly ear marked for my shop and for shows but if you think you need one, give me a shout and we’ll get one out to you.
