Made up some fun button jewelry and other jewelry using buttons, mini mirrors, reflectors, rhinestones, and googly eyes.  I made them for a craft sale.  unfortunately, I didn't sell many Sad  It was a weird marketplace.  Anyway, still wanted to share.  Also, check out my organizer for my jewelry - a plastic tray I bought for a $1 at Wal-mart.  I seperated (though in this pic, it got messed up) my jewelry into different compartments for display.

These are really cool, the mini reflectors and the roses are my favorite.  It's a shame that they didn't sell too well, sounds like a boring market.  Undecided At least now you can keep them for yourself and friends Smiley

They'll name a city after us-and later say it's all our fault.

I especially like what you did with the barrettes - great job!  Are you going to other craft shows?  I used to do the craft show thing (between college and grad school) - and some markets are really terrible, but others are just great.  Don't give up!

They're adorable! and from looking at your portfolio and these pics, I imagine you could clean up at the right shows, you know more about presentation than I ever will!!! Smiley

I like doing button crafts too.  I think your stuff is terrific. The market must have been weird if you did not sell much. keep up the good work!

Thanks everyone for all the nice compliments.  Yeah, it was just odd...there were a lot of young people there with style...into the indie music scene.  I don't know if my stuff looked colorful and kiddy or what...another lady with higher end looking stuff (and more expensive, I might add) sold $500 worth of stuff.  It's just frustrating when you work really hard and can't seem to find your right niche.  I've never had a show where I sold much more than $100.  I put so much effort into it.  I guess I could put some up now on Etsy, but it seems like that there are a lot of this type of craft on there.  Is it just me, or is it incredibly hard to stand out on there?   I'll figure something out.  I just have to stay positive Smiley
