I agree with what Amanelle said. I'd try to advertise on crafty boards and livejournals as well as site that target younger people like Kiwibox.com's forums, Laundromatic.net/and their forum, in addition to popular magazine forums like Lucky, Seventeen, etc. Online fashion zines or sites are good too, like catwalk-queen.net or fifthavemag.com.
I mean, nearly all of my plated jewelry hasn't rusted or tarnished. A few of my earwires did, so I threw those out and never used that kind again. Yeah, I guess I'll end up using sterling silver and 14k gold, and hopefully add some less expensive stuff in.
Have your plated headpins or eyepins ever tarnished? Mine never have.
For example. If I made jewelry, would you rather me use sterling silver findings and chain with real semi-precious gemstones and have the price be higher (ie. $30), or would you rather me use silver plated findings and chain with perhaps real gemstones or perhaps glass ones and have the price be lower (ie. $15 under).
I'm having difficulty choosing whether I should shell out the cash and buy sterling silver or 14k gold findings or just settle with the plated ones, which are better than the nickel ones.
I mean, which are more attractive? And which, in the long run, would get me better business? I mean, I was thinking I could start out with the plated findings and eventually jack my prices up and use better findings once I get a following, but I don't know if I should just start with the best materials possible or start with the mediocre ones and possibly have more sales.
I can't think of anywhere interesting to photograph in DFW. Well, more like Fort Worth and Arlington.
I want to take pictures of abandoned buildings, but I don't know how accessible or safe they are. I've already taken pictures of various bridges around Fort Worth as well as the train station downtown.
Any good bead stores in this area? Preferably nearer or in Fort Worth or Arlington.
I know there's this one in central Arlington, near Arlington Memorial Hospital...I think it's off of Randol Mill. While the beads are interesting, it's a tad expensive and there isn't enough variety for me, although it does have good variety for the size of its store.
I'm tired of going to Michael's/MJ Designs, Hobby Lobby, and Garden Ridge. I want some cool craft stores to go to!
I absolutely ADORE your second dress. Except I think that the ribbon hem would make me look short. I'm going to try to do the same thing except make a ruffle hem, perhaps. But for Homecoming or something instead. Oh, question! Which Simplicity tube dress pattern did you use? I want to make sure I get the right one.
