Collaborations with other artists


Collaborations with other artists

Is this months blog carnival theme for the Jewelry Artisans Community and I have been breaking my head all month what to write.

I thought I never had collaborations with other crafters but I was wrong.
How could I forget about it.

The story is this: A few years ago my sister asked me if I could make some items related to Basset Hounds. I looked in my usual places for pendants or charms but couldn’t find any at that time.

Back then I was a member of a Dutch beading forum (which sadly doesn’t exist anymore) and on that forum was a lady (Biebs) who made little animal figurines from glass. So I asked her if she could make me a Basset Hound. She never tried making them so it was a challenge for her to get them as lively as possible.

I made the cellphone charm with the prototype of the beads for her.
When my sister saw the Basset bead Biebs made she wanted more of them. So I ordered a few more.

I turned them all into necklaces for her to give as a present on her “puppy day” to give to everybody who bought a puppy from her.






What collaborations did you have, feel free to tel me and leave comment.

I will be adding the links from our other JAC members when available.

    What sweet hounds! She did a great job with them, and very obviously you made a very good team, too! I bet the new bassett owners were thrilled.

      They where all happy with them, sadly the lady doesn’t make glass beads anymore.

    OMGosh, Carina! Those basset charms are adorable and you did a great job with them. What a great collaboration that was!

    I think every artist should collaborate at least once just to have the experience of working with someone else.

      I totally agree with you that one should at least ones work with someone else.
