          I will admit that I would never try sead beading. Not that I don't like it... I just wouldn't have the pacients. You did an awesome job.

Dastardliestboo, I was not trying to tread on any toes. I just didn't see the point in creating a new thread. I just wanted to post my photo to show what I do. I don't think mine is better than yours. You did an awesome job. Just like any wire wrap... you can make it many varitable ways. I like the top accents you did. It is very appealing to the eye. I'm sure you venture to the creative wire forum also.

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: My photography, would it sell? on: January 16, 2007 11:58:13 PM
What usually, really sells photography is not the picture itself. Put a meaning behind your photo. Meaning... words. Get your photos blown up and add sayings or captions. Like the first one of the dancing lady. Where did you take the photo? For example... say you took it in mexico. Add the work Mexico to the photo in large print and have to made large. Most people don't want small photos. Framing it also helps to sell the photo. It makes sense to me.

The nature photos are great for captions. Even offer custom sayings to your photos and have them blown up. I think your work is great. Photos speak to some people and sometimes they don't. A single word can make a difference.

           I've been doing the interchangeable wire wrap pendants with marbles for several years. They are very popular. My fried marbles pendants go towards helping domestic violence. A fellow store owner gave me the idea from her personal story. I was inspired to help with my work. I am however, working on getting these back up. I just use bead caps on them for now.

        Nice... I see you tried to experiment with your photos. What mega pixel is it? Is is a camera phone? Was just curious. I have some photo tips on my site if anyone is interested... generally speaking.

      Good job. Just trying to help... use more flux and use a exato knife to slice off the excess copper in the inside edges.
