I recently on a whim bought some beads and letters to make a bracelet with my mare's registered name. I also made one for a friend and her horse, and she loved it. I recently started up my old hobby of making braided keychains (you know, the box braids and so on), and though of making one with block letters with Amber's name.
I was wondering if there would be any interest in the bracelets or keychains? I thought I'd just see before I go and buy more beads and lace than I'll need. I'll post some pictures of the bracelets I already have tomorrow sometime.
I was thinking $5-$10 for keychains, depending on length and difficulty of the design, and $3-$5 for bracelets depending on difficulty of design, with free postage.
Okay, finally! I waited to post pics so I could have a picture of another keychain I made for a friend this morning.
These are definitely NOT all the options, but I used the same design on them because I really liked how it turned out on Amber's.
I thought I'd also post a quick rundown of what the options are. I haven't decided yet what pricing would be for various options but I'm hoping to figure that out sometime soon. This stuff is pretty expensive when you buy enough so that people can have some options to choose from, not to mention, I will end up with more letter beads than I need eventually because I know I'll use up my vowels and need a whole new bag! The supplies I have ran me around $50, plus I'm offering free postage, so I'd like to try to break even, haha!
For anyone who doesn't know what some of these things look like, I'll be posting better pictures later on.
