How the Seconds Sale came about...


Some you might be wondering, why a seconds sale? What is a second?

A second is an art bead that may have a pattern slightly off, dots not exactly centered, unplanned color blending, beadhole flush rather than dimpled, proportions slightly off, etc. They have what I consider slight flaws. Other seconds are prototype beads - new designs that weren't quite there yet.

When I host an open studio, the visitors often want to buy my seconds. I think they're flawed but many of my bead buyers do not. So, the seconds sale was born.

I think a "seconds sale" is a good thing...I often use just one bead in something!!!

Works well for me...
