Bloody Moon – Earrings

I finally finished the earrings… of course the store did not have any dark jumprings, so I resorted to making my own from wire leftovers of the eyepins I had used – they are probably not the most accurately shaped jumprings in the world, but at least the colour is a perfect match now:

Those polymer clay crescents had been lying around forever after I made them for a necklace that didn’t work out because of colour issues. Now I decided that two identical components just ask to be turned into earrings, even though I have no use for earrings. Couldn’t find an interesting colour scheme for those, either, so I stuck with something monochrome that always works, dark faux metal and deep blood red.

Why do I keep making earrings? I really should sell some, but I can’t even take photos of them being worn (don’t have pierced ears). And the Artfire shop I had planned earlier this year never got started, since I choose Artfire because they had no fees for up to 12 items – that would have been a nice risk-free chance to try if anyone would be interested in buying my stuff at all. Now they have changed that to a monthly fee of 9,16€, which makes Artfire entirely uninteresting for me – with my handful of items, it would be much cheaper using Etsy, and there’s probably more “walk-in customers” over there, too.

Still, I don’t really see anyone being interested in buying my stuff – other than the IDIC or Seal of Rassilon pendants, which I will not offer for sale, because they are copyrighted designs I have no right to sell – a couple of bugs are not worth getting in trouble with the BBC or Paramount or whoever has the rights to sell their merchandise here in Germany. If favourites on DA are any indicator of customer interest (and I’d expect more people would leave a favourite than spend money on some luxury item like jewelry), then I won’t have much of a chance. I don’t know, maybe I’m spoiled by the feedback on my fanart. I had forgotten how hard it was with my jewelry, hunting for every single favourite… it’s a little depressing.
