Popular because I'm cheap or because I'm pretty?

Customers love the Through the Looking Glass Nuggets. I've routered so many of these little beauties that I've had to buy a new router bit!


I put them up on a whim one day. I was using them in Blackbird Reflections Necklace and made a few too many. I thought I'd put them up on my website to sell off the extras. I wasn't prepared for their popularity - yet another example of you never really know what's going to sell! So what started as a stash buster for me ended up becoming a series of charms. Go where the customers lead you :-) I wonder though, do my customers love the through the looking glass charms because she's pretty or because she's cheap? (said with tongue firmly planted in cheek).

I like the look. I love that you are using other colors now. I will have to go check that out. I think I have some of the original amber colored ones you did. I don't know about cheap, I just know what I like! And it is a good lesson in listening to your customer base. Enjoy the day! Erin

Both! i totally know what you mean. I put up the patina-ted ring single stackers in because I have so many, couldn't believe I not only sold off the xtras, had to make more and got an order for store! You just never can tell!

I would love to design some jewelry with those.
