Tassel earrings made with seed beads. There are seven strands per earring, making them heptapods like in the movie "Arrival"!

You have very pretty earrings, and apparently a huge monitor. ;-)

The picture is lovely and also quite large. It's 1,739px by 2,369px; that's a lot. Dreamwidth image hosting offers a thumbnail option that you might want to look into: it makes it possible to show a smaller version of the picture in a posting, and people can click through to the full version.

I'm not saying this to pick on you, honestly; I hope you find it useful. And I'm glad that this community is seeing more activity again, so thanks for posting!

Welcome! Well, it's not yet as lively as I'd like to see, but DW seems to be growing in activity whereas LJ seems to be shrinking, so there's hope.

Those are really pretty! Do you sell them anywhere?

Excellent! They're really pretty. :)
I would charge more. Your time is worth more than $10/hr (and it's probably less than that if you figure in cost of materials ). I'm struggling with what to charge for woven goods right now - there are so many people on etsy that charge way too little, which kind of sets a precedent.
(Just my two cents!)

You're right! Pricing is really hard. You have to think about how much you're getting per hour, the context in which you're selling, the market in which you're selling... I haven't tried craft shows yet. Maybe next year?

I weave mostly dishtowels right now, but will be adding napkins to my repertoire very soon - I've had two requests, one is a commission (with an open deadline). I've done bathmats (there was a sale on 3/2 cotton, how could I resist?) too. I'm hoping to weave some wool shawls for the fall/winter. Done a few samples and feel like I could get something worthwhile fairly soon.
Of course, I won't make any sales until I actually get off my butt and decide on a business/domain name and start listing things!

Ah! I have a fondness for macrame - I can remember my mother making *so many* planters when I was small. :)

I'm imagining they'd look really lovely when worn.
