Flower Life buttons in the Bead Unique

Alexandra wrote:  I’ve managed to get a place in the Bead Unique Summer 2009 Bead Swap!
This means that 15 participants of this Bead Swap issue received a set of Flower Life buttons (among other beads). Hopefully there will be many button creations and hopefully the editors will find some of them beautiful enough to publish in the magazine. All pieces will be published on the Bead Unique website, but with a delay of about a year. Patience!

How to sell specialty beads part 8: Gave all your beads a special name

What sounds more appealing to you: ‘tensha bead’ or ‘decal bead with a rose’? ‘Photobead’ or ‘large pink bead with purple flowers’? Specialty beads are special and you can emphasize that by giving them a special name. Most of the time they have a name already. Ask your supplier or do some internet research.

A special name makes your customers curious, makes the beads sound important (which they are!) and stresses the variety of products you have to offer. Besides, people like to be special, wear special clothes and make jewellery from special beads.

Lori from Tab Made uses real seeds in her jewellery, like these earrings made with real peach pits.

But even more special are her ceramic and polymer clay handmade beads that could easily be mistaken for objects from the forests floor! Lori adds natural stones so that her jewellery has an absolutely natural look.
