above ... Swarovski Crystal Aurora Borealis Eternity Circle
There are times when I create something and think it is beautiful and will sell in a heartbeat, it is always a a rude awakening when I find obviously that no one else feels the same way.
I meticulously wove these Swarovski crystal Eternity Circle together and loved the depth and dimension of the piece in general. When I took them out into the sunlight the sparkling effects were beyond amazing ... especially with the Crystal aurora borealis pendant.
above and below ... Sapphire Blue Swarovski Crystal pendant on handcrafted kumihimo braided cord.
However they seem to gather little attention and I don't understand why. I think most of you beaders and jewelry makers are all aware of the price of Swarovski Crystals (these are 6 mm) so making a piece that uses over 80 crystals is not cheap. I priced it about as low as I could but maybe I'm underpricing them and people expect these true Swarovskis to cost more ? Or maybe they're passe, unhip and outdated ... though I thought circles, representing eternal love, was in ... I somehow missed when they went out.
Have any of you jewelry maker - beaders created pieces that you thought would go like hot-fresh baked bread and instead sat around your inventory like old, stale biscuits ?
