We introduce the first in our new blog feature in which the JETs will be sharing some of their own favorite pieces with you!
Satin Doll & Co. is known for colorful, earthy handmade jewelry pieces. Everyone has favorites among their own collections. Ever wonder if those favorites are the same as your customer's?
Rarely does one ask the designer "What are your favorite pieces?". I was at a festival yesterday and I had the rare pleasure to meet a man who had been in a crane accident a couple of years back in Manhattan, New York. To make a long story short, it was a miracle he survived, and one thing he does now that he is disabled, is eat oysters and then paint the shells which become earrings. He was kind enough to point out the pieces he liked and the ones he didn't. The ones he did not like were the ones that really caught my eye because they were so odd, colorful and very unique. Which just shows, the customer's favorite might not be the designer's favorite.
This all made me think. I have made literally hundreds of pieces of jewelry; what are my personal favorites? I wonder if they are my customer's favorites too?
|Wooden Desire -Beaded Dangle Earrings|
|Samba Queen - Beaded Bracelet|
|Earthy Hindu Goddess - Beaded Necklace|
|Sweet Symphony - Wood and Carnelian Beaded Earrings|
Initially, when making these, I fell head over heels in love with them and was planning on keeping them for myself, but another pair won out. I just adore the earthiness and richness of the colors. Definitely a pair of earrings I would wear everyday.
I've chosen my favorites, now what are yours? Please pop by my store, take a look around and let me know! Thank you so much.
