  • Pendant problem!!!

    Hiya

    I was just hoping for some thoughts about a teeny issue that i am just trying to think through!

    I recently bought some lovely pendants, and I thought as they were so beautiful already that I may ruin them if i do anything to beady with them so i just popped them on a sterling silver chain. I love the simplicity of them, they work really well ! Now I only just thought about this as my first craft fair is coming up but would it be ok or not to sell these? They are hardly handcrafted really are they? I can't make my mind up!!! If I added a few Swarovski dangles would this then be handcrafted?? I am having difficulty drawing the line if you know what i mean. Anyone else have this problem?

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    I've had this problem before, I've solved it by keeping them for myself

        I think that if you add a couple of things to the design to make it your own, you should be ok to sell them.

          What are they made of? If they're mass produced glass from China, then my first reaction would be not good, if they're artisan lampwork or gemstone, that might be different. Have you got a picture?

            Not sure if this will help you but my OH drills stones to make pendants and we sell them on the market. We have a customer that buys them and also buys thongs from us. She then puts them together herself and sells them at craft fairs as hand made jewellery.

              It depends how much of a purest you are really. There is no right or wrong. It's like the age old question 'Is it art?'

              I did a jewellery course and there was always an on-going arguement between students as to whether buying findings was 'acceptable' or whether you should make them from scratch. I know it's abit different but it's all a matter of personal opinion. My opinion was that my life was too short to make them (even though I could) when I could buy them for a few pence.

                  There is absolutely no reason why you should not sell them.
