Facebook page. We've invited customers to share their favorite Ornamentea item on their facebook wall and I love seeing what folks like and why. The fans are excited to have a chance to win $10 gift certificates, I like the fact that I can peek into our customers studios.
I like seeing what they make with the items they like.
These earrings are by Cindy Mays of Sweet Southern Charmer. She shared the skull beads (which I also like a lot!) but I really liked her super-wrappy wire work on these earrings. That kind of wire wrappy-wrap-wrap stuff is harder to do that you might imagine and almost impossible to teach to people. You just have to understand the way the wire is going to look and relax about it lining up just exactly. Cindy's work is sold at the Old Wilmington City Market among other places...check it out.
The Facebook contest ends on the 8th.
