Am I seller or am I artist?

Let's talk about something that no any owner of creative business will ever say out loud: what I do for money and what I do for my own art and creativity? Risky thing to say in front of customers. I know many of other crown and jewelry makers following me and I know we all had a peak into "sales tips" at Etsy or other online portals at least ones in ours lives. The only common advice there for easy selling - do what sells well, do trendy things, do what people are expecting to buy in nearest future. Well, that a good advice. But I still can't follow it! I have a creative monster inside of me who is...

Back to black: Halloween Specials

Some new crowns have landed into the shop! The most elegant color is now in stock of MoonDome shop. It is like having a little black dress, but crown. I need to set up Halloween photo shoot to catch these two beautiful creations in all its glory!

The edge of the perception

Have you ever thought about how you may look in the eyes of others?  They say, marketing is a skill that let you speak the language of your auditory.

You see, there is nothing about "what should I produce to be heard" because creations come first, we are already creating them. But if we want to sell them, we need to position yourself on market in specific way, you need to tell your story on language that your...

Glencoe. My personal savage heaven on this planet

It is cold and gloomy. It is windy and not much friendly. It will not be so keen on showing its treasures and make sure you are comfortable to enjoy them. But it is absolutely unspeakably beautiful. It is Scotland. There is no any other place in the world that would be same savage and cold, but so attractive you have no  any chance to visit without leaving a part of your heart in its wild glens and majestic mountains. At the middle of the spring I been invited to take a part as supplier and model in international photo boot camp in my very favorite place on this planet - Glencoe. Thanks to my talented friend Olesija, who been helping a lot...

Tassels for summer

In previous post I was talking about making something different for sake of progress in your own style and skills. That is something that really taking me a lots of time to think about. Because creative business is always a way that only goes futher and never could be steady and still. For some reason I always been after a  golden tone materials before summer. I am not much gold person. It feels like "cat or dog" choice - there is no solid reason to prefer one over another, but we all have own tastes and so we go for something we used to like before. Summer time feels like you can play more with accessories, add something new to your look...
