When I create my jewelry pieces to sell I have often sometimes been known to not want to sell the pieces. You spend a long time creating the piece…some artists like to call that "giving birth" to the piece and then when it comes to passing it along to someone else it kind of feels like they are taking a little piece of you away with them.
I made this cascading necklace and thought it turned out nice but I hadn't really bonded with it until after I tried it on with a few things.
Now it's going to be hard to let go…
Shoes – Nine West, Jeans – Garage, Shirt – H&M, Necklace – by me : )
You're probably thinking…well sell this one and just make another one. Funny thing is that I don't work like that. I only make something once. I hate repeating anything. It's a big turn off for me. It is boring and not creative at all.
So, as hard as it was I have put this baby up for adoption. I hope she goes to a loving home where they will take her out and show her off often. She is a bright young thing and deserves that.
Hahaha, I can totally relate to giving birth to a piece that you created. I have that with my paintings but I dont sell them I give them aways as gifts to my friends but still sometimes thing, man I should keep that for myself. I love this necklace, its so joyfull and love the detailing on it 🙂
That is too funny! I know it must be hard selling something that you spent so much effort making! It sure is gorgeous!

Ohhhh… I would happily adopt that necklace! My first thought was it must be Anthropolgie, and that is a compliment!
can get that, beinga a designer, that you dont always want to just recreate the same thing. This is a really great necklace though – the colors with this chambray! Perfect
