|Open Locket necklaces|
1) If you think it will take one month to create these necklaces, which involve several steps, you are SO wrong! Maybe it is my perfectionism, but I ended up spending too many hours to count making these creations.
2) Applying several layers of resin will assure maximum glow and depth of color. To pass the time while stirring each batch of resin, it is helpful to listen to music by Adele, Amy Winehouse, Joni Mitchell, Florence and the Machine, U2, Johnny Cash, Kings of Leon, and Wilco. It is even more fun if you sing along. It is especially great that my dogs are not judgemental of my singing voice.
3) Deciding on how to package your items will be a real challenge and will involve lots of internet searches. In the end, I decided on a small grey velvet bag and added a small silver charm with my business name and a fabric flower to glam it up a bit. I placed the bagged necklaces and my business card and product information card into a simple sheer organza bag. I won't tell you how many things I ordered that I ended up not using! I know they will be perfect for something else, so I am chalking it up to "lesson learned."
I could go on and on, but I will save my other insights for another post. Without further ado, let get to the giveaway......
