Need Some Love - Artisan Handmade




There is something ALL handmade artists go through:  you design a beautiful piece of jewelry, or create a fabulous painting, or crochet an intricate piece of table art, or . . . the list goes on and on.  You have put so much of yourself into the piece, you love it and you are sure it will sell very, very quickly. Unfortunately, there it still sits in your shop . . . and you have no idea why!  Selling online is such a roll of the dice.


This blog post is for those gorgeous handmade items that, whenever they are found in the shop, the creator thinks “I wonder why that piece has never sold?”  You’ll see what I mean when you browse the beauties below:
