  • What to do?

    Hi I have made this dragonfly and don't know whether to attach it to a brooch, a tiara or a comb. any suggestions would be greatfully received. I could also do with help on pricing it, it is made from an assortment of glass beads.
    Thanks

      I think it would make a fab brooch too.

      As for pricing - if you take a look at the "tutorials" page on my website (link below) there is an article on pricing that might give you some ideas.

        I would make another and have them "crawling" up each side of a necklace

        as for pricing take the cost of materials add the time it took to make and you should be somewhere close, although you cant always work that way I spent a week doing a project recently it is totally stunning but I doubt if I would get many people queing up to buy it if I charged £300

            Thanks for your help a brooch does seem the most popular unfortunately it would be too heavy to have two crawling up a necklace but it is a thought for a future project

              You could have a normal beaded necklace about 20 inches long and place the dragonfly on one side.

              I love quirky non-matching stuff!

              I will post a pic of what I mean later if you need me to

                That's really good, you could use it for a brooch or a pendant but I have to say that my favourite would be a hair pin or a fascinator

                    Oh it's gorgeous, and I'm with the majority too, think it would make a stunning brooch.

                          Brooch, and when priceing go a bit high that looks like a seller to me, gives you room to give a bit of discount if you need to

                            hi, i've been working part time in a jewellery shop recently and we've had a few brooch/necklaces in recently.
                            That is, the necklace pendant is detachable with a pin on the back. So bascially you could make it both a necklace and a brooch!
                            Problem solved & decision making passed on to the wearer!!

                              Hi Elzi - I was just going to say that.
                              As the devil's advocate I was going to say that in the C18th they made jewellery that clipped on and off ....to make a necklace, a brooch or earings following the wearer's fancy. I made some repro ones once.
                              Reckon it's time for a come back?
