  • Is there anything you really hate making ?

    I just thought I'd ask this, because it seems the things I hate making the most are the ones which sell best. Or maybe I just hate making them because they are so popular, and I end up in a repetative jewellery making state.

    I am working on a tutorial at the moment for a tiara which I used to sell for £150. I stopped making it because it became too popular and I began to dread brides choosing it. Even though I admit the money was nice, I just couldn't bring myself to make it anymore.

    So anyway, I was doing the video tutorial today, and all those old memories came flooding back and I began to get in a really bad mood.

    Has anyone else had that experience?

    Yup - things with lots of writing on, with realistic portraits, or with big areas of black. Drive me crazy...

          Bath Bombs....


          They are the bane of my life...but I sell loads of them...

          Do we hate these things because we have to make them a lot or are people buying the things we hate making because we hate making them???


          Hmmmmm...
          for bath bomb, soap & Skincare kits

            Illusion jewellery, elastic bracelets, alternate beaded jewellery like round stone then crystal.
            just find those boring and uninspiring to make plus can see the first two in sainsburys tesco etc, though they look nice
            but youre right that stuff is popular. i think ppl will ask me to make the normal stuff at christmas!
            once yoy have someone givig you a brief its great ans you get into making somthing beautiful but of your own accord not much point

                  Like Becky, there isn't anything that I make which I hate... life is too short to be doing things we don't enjoy so if I start to get fed up with something then I'll put it aside and move onto somthing else and usually end up going back to it a few weeks later.

                    I love every aspect of my work with a passion - apart from the paperwork, book keeping etc.

                    If I did an hour a day------------sounds great in theory

                          It funny how it always seems to be the same design that brides go for. You have a huge display but that one style grabs their imagination and you think Oh no here we go again! So yes occasionally I do get fed up with making the same style.

                            You want to be glad you don't make soap!

                            Soap makers develop a funny waddle - so they don't slip on the oils etc
