I'm surprised nobody has suggested this yet but instead of using styrofoam and carving your chess pieces, you could just form them out of wire and paper mache them.

Oh those are cute!  Nice work Wink

Were these originall shaft buttons?

How did you attach the earring piece to them?

I've been wanting to do this exact thing for a while, but hadn't managed to figure out how to attach the earing back successfully.

when i made this kind of button earrings, i somehow cut off the shaft with pincers and filed the backs until they were kind of even. then i glued the earring backs to them.

hope that helps  Smiley

Paging Capt. Obvious, *why* didn't I think of this?  Thanks Cheesy

I have a question for the etsy brain trust/think tank....

Do any of you list flubs?  You know things that are not BAD but not exactly up to your quality standards?  I have a couple of things...a tray in which the in-lay is not 100% smooth because I attempted to cover this really cool cashmere fabric in polyurethane....it is OK but no amount of sanding and smoothing will fix it at this point!  We also have a melted bead bowl that has a couple of bubbles in it.  It looks cool but the plastic there is thin so it may eventually crack where the bubbles showed up.  I just don't feel right about listing it....

I was thinking putting them on my site as flubs and listing them for the cost of materials.  I'm chalking the time spent to make them as a learning experience.

So what do you think?

I would list them but make sure you point out concerns about the product.  I've got a couple of items in my shop that I had discovered had flaws after making them (the cons of making jewelry at midnight: not seeing cracked beads ><) and adjusted the price to reflect it.

Everyone I talk to *loves* these!  Yet no-one will buy them =(

i couldn't resist them!

I've found your friggin' owl's three times when browsing etsy / craftster so far... I think my great grandmother is trying to send me a message.

Of course, you should know I love them, seriously.  I would buy a wristlet if I wasn't trying to scrap enough money by to get up to PA for the univ-con.

aw, thanks! i love my owls.

AAHHH Cheesy  You have no idea how much you just made my night (or morning, depending on your perspective XP)  Thank you Cheesy

Everyone I show my shop to loves my stuff, maybe my prices are out of wack.  -ponders-

What an awesome thread to start. You are a genius.
I have only been on etsy about a month. No sales yet. I think my prices are too high. How is a girl supposed to make a buck??  Sad



jenuinearticles, i totally agree with selling your work for enough to pay yourself, but sometimes that means people want more info. the earrings are really pretty, though i can't wear them (i have tunnels). but maybe you should give people more info. are they silver plated, purer silver, etc? maybe the size would help people picture them on?


everyone has great stuff that isn't selling! i just opened my shop, and sold one thing right away, but nothing else has moved.

Just one, a gorgeous necklace Smiley  I've been selling since August.  I've had my shop open since may but I couldn't sell this summer due to being away.
