1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: The first two outfits for my seinor collection! Cording and Silk *lots of pics* on: November 20, 2009 10:39:05 AM
I love the details of the fronts of the corsets and dress and all the work you went through with the cording, but the backs of them all are lacking for me.  you could have made them complete to the back, they would look more finished.  and the skirt you made in the 2nd pic makes the corset look like a costume, which is kinda sad after all the work you've gone through with it.  I like the third skirt you make (knitted) and I like the idea of an experimental wedding gown, would like to see more pictures when it's done.  All in all, great work on the fronts of all the corsets!

I think that for something that you sell yourself, don't undersell.  Take into consideration how valuable your time is, and the true cost of materials.  That always works for me.  Plus, it's one of a kind.  That raises desirability a lot with clients.  Especially if they can choose the fabric, like other guys here have told you.  Congrats, they are very cute btw!

If you have a looot of fabric left, you could make bucket bags. For school and such.

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Advice/Opinions on my new Faerie Collection on: August 11, 2007 02:36:23 PM
I would follow gilowyn's advice: sell your stuff well.  People don't take into consideration the fact that original stuff like we all make here is not mass made, or that nobody else will have it.  That's the selling point for me, I never repeat anything I make, and I always make sure to tell all my clients that they are getting something that will set them apart from the crowd.  Just be sure to target your market well.  What's so hard for us to envision when pricing is the fact that we know that our materials are not that expensive, but it's our Time that is most valuable, as well as our ideas.  'Cause anybody can get cheap materials, it's making them look expensive and unique that takes work and originality. 

Your stuff is really pretty and unique! I am sure that it will sell fabulously.  I know that for the little bottles of faerie dust you could charge $19+, and for the bracelets etc. $25+.  I know that you will have great success!

Thanks guys!

In the first and 2nd pics, I used 18 gauge for the frames and I think it was 28 for the wrapping, which took a LooooooG time to fill, since the wire was so thin.

In the 3rd pic I made the frame with 16 gauge, filled it a little in the center with it and stuck the beer cap between two wire "stops" (if that makes any sense) inside.  I then filled the heart on the outside with the 28 gauge.  They are really time consuming, but the light just pops off them because of the little ridges between the wires. 

Oh, and I secured the outside borders with krazy glue so the thin wires won't slip off. 

Oh! And the beads were strung on 22 gauge wire on the inside and tied at different angles inside the hearts too.  Hope that helps! I also have another post here somewhere where I made a round cage with more heineken bottle caps and beads, it's HUGE!
