  1. Wow just got priced out of a store front by someone selling Anodized Titanium for the price I charge for AA. I can't see how they are actually making any profit at those prices.

      Not sure that they actually had any contact information listed in store. All told though now that my knee jerk reaction of holy cow how can they make any profit at those levels is over I am not too worried about it because nothing says I have to change my prices and I only sell a few a month out of the store anyway.

      The weird thing is I looked at their website and Etsy and they are priced appropriately there.

      Yeah I can't understand it either. I am not trying to make a living off of my work but rock bottom prices don't help anyone.

  5. Happy Native American/Columbus Day to the USers

      Lets face it Europeans didn't "slaughter" Native Americans. The plague that they brought did. The vikings tried for over 500 years to claim the americas the longest one of their colonies lasted was 2 years. After which the natives ran them off. However the plague they brought killed by most accounts between 75 and 90% of the natives. When Columbus showed up it was to a mostly deserted and all set up "nation"

  6. So frustrating to have people admire my work and be genuinely interested until I tell them the price. Worst part is when they argue that a handmade bracelet is not worth $15 dollars. GRRR.

      Most of the ones I have on display right now are either HP4-1 or GSG.

      Yeah my warranty specifies you have to have the original piece for repairs. And as of yet I haven't had anyone want something replace because they abused it.

      Yeah I use AA so that's why I price at $15 I had originally priced them at $20 but they just weren't moving. And even at $20 I feel like they are getting a good deal especially since all of my work comes with a 1 year hassle free warranty which includes resizing if needed at any point.

      That's what people seem to think. Maybe I am just slow or a bit of a perfectionist but it takes me closer to an hour to make a HP4-1 bracelet.

  10. As an artist how do you deal with commissions that you don't like the aesthetics of? Just completed a GSG bracelet that looks horrible in the color combo the customer wanted in my opinion.

    1. Waluy

      Waluy

      Oh don't get me wrong I will make any combo I can if the customer wants it, I am just slightly ashamed to have my name attached to it.

  11. Finally got some of my jewelry on display in a store. Owner is charging me 30% of anything that sells and I set the prices. Anything that doesn't sell costs me nothing to have on display.

    1. Waluy

      Yeah its a local store that does his best to help out artists just starting out.

  12. How can people "PSSHHH" when I ask if they want to donate to St Jude? Do you like seeing kids die from cancer?

    1. Waluy

      Waluy

      It may also be that the person in question believe the recent "hype" about St. Jude cutting corners and causing more deaths than it prevents. ( I don't remember the exact topic but it was something along those lines).

      Don't know about 5/16 but 16g 1/4 ss is definitely a pain in the hands.

  14. Ok. Seeing pictures of a commissioned bracelet on the wrist of a happy buyer is an amazing feeling.

    1. Waluy

      Waluy

      Yeah I always thought it was really cool seeing someone wear a bracelet I made but seeing a picture of one posted by someone I've never actually met was amazing :)

      Hmm I like the rattle idea, but the mobile idea makes me nervous if one of the main links breaks it could hurt the baby.
