Ever get those periods where everything seems surreal and disjointed? I'm having one. I have finished 'Karen', my Ice Queen necklace, and I think she is beautiful. I also know I won't need to look for packaging to mail her in when she sells, this is because she won't sell. My designs are very eclectic in the wardrobe department, most of them will not 'go with anything', unless you're planning to take the limo to the Oscars...............or you are an artist who loves sparkly adornment, in which case you will have probably already made one for yourself!
This is what is commonly known as a 'crisis of confidence', all artists get it at some time, I know of excellent beadwork designers who will not look at other beader's work because they will start to believe their own stuff is inferior and stop designing. The ideal place to be is in a niche where there are very few other artists - less competition, but also less mass appeal! 'Tis a quandary.
I will post pictures of 'Karen' when I get the Swarovski crystals to behave and stop pretending they're different colours when they are, in fact, just crystal.
