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.
