good stuff and bad stuff....

Heres some items I've finally got around to listing in my Etsy shop...and a photo of another pile of stuff which is about half of the other things I haven't gotten around to listing.

These new pieces show images arising from my usual interest in the female figurative. They are all taken from early to mid European paintings (C15 - 16th) I'm really enjoying cutting, fabricating and patinating the brass and copper metal parts of the pendants.

If you want to see other views and prices of any of these necklaces click on the Etsy shop
icon in the right hand side bar.

Some of the numerous pieces that haven't been listed in the Etsy shop
A postscript moan....
I get really frustrated that by the time each item is photographed, the pictures downloaded and edited, then a detailed description written and all the information uploaded to the internet store it adds at least an hour to the making time for each item. For a low price item, like earrings priced at $20 or less, this makes it ridiculously un-economic to list them.....
.....then I start to beat myself up about how I can only lead this life where I have the privilege of not having to do a "work activity" that brings in sufficient income to pay for my living expenses because this happy life artmaking in the studio is only facilitated by a generous and supportive husband. Sometimes I can just count my blessings that this is the fortunate situation I'm in but when there are long spells of not making any sales from my studio or Etsy shop I get feeling anxious and guilty about this dependence.
