I needed to take a break this week, but I wanted to at least give you a preview of a series I'm working on. This will eventually be compiled into a single free tutorial for your use in marketing jewelry containing artisan glass beads.
Lampwork for the Jewelry Designer - Identify the characteristics of quality lamwpork beads and the multi-step process of how beads are made. The objective of this tutorial is to educate the jewelry designer on what to look for (and what to avoid) in glass beads. Understanding the time and investment the artist puts into the beads will help you, as the jewelry designer, market your jewelry containing artisan glass beads.
If you are interested in participating in this project, please post to this blog or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
If you are a lampworker: what is your two-minute "elevator speech" you give to someone who knows nothing about glass beads?
If you are a jewelry designer: what is your two-minute "elevator speech" you give when explaining the value of the glass art beads in your designs?
Thanks, and have a great week!
