Thinking about Halloween...



Been working on some new pieces & just added this fun glow in the dark skull n crossbones pendant to the shop this morning.


I'm so torn on whether or not I want to keep using my drawings as the backgrounds for the jewelry. I worry that the drawings may be more attention getting than the actual pieces, however the only times I've had my stuff featured on etsy's front page was with pieces showcased against a doodle background...so maybe this is something that works with the so called 'etsy aesthetic', or perhaps it's more eye catching because it's something I do that other folks are not doing & sets me apart.
I dunno. I love the necklace & I love to draw stuff...so guess I'll just go with the flow & see what happens.
I hate to give up the glitter entirely also...


Please let me know... drawings good/bad ...glitter good/bad ...I'm so attached, I can't judge for myself.

:o)

I love to see the drawings in the background of your photos. It's something that is unique to you and I always know your jewelry from other peoples.

Ummm... Wow!
I love the drawings, they are totally cute and fun and in no way whatsoever do I think that they distract from the product itself. The glitter is also great, but I think that the drawings really take the cake.

Thank you guys! That's what I really needed to know...whether or not the drawings helped to differentiate my work from a lot of other similar stuff that's cropped up in the last year or so. I know it's time for a change because sales are slower compared to previous years & so many folks are doing similar things. Time to grow...time to change...something. I appreciate y'all taking the time to comment & help me out with this!
