Just For Fun? Or For Making Money Too?
There are several different reasons for making polymer clay beads. Some of you may just like to make beads because they are pretty and a crafty thing to do. Others use polymer clay beads to make jewelry for personal use or to gift to friends / family. And then there are those of you who want to turn your hobby into a business. Or at least be able to make a bit of money to “….feed your creative hunger,” as one reader put it in this post: Selling Handmade Beaded Jewelry
I’ve already shared my reasons for bead making over in this post:
Why Make Polymer Clay Beads?
So today I’d love to hear from you. Please share your motivations for making beads, in the comments section below. Feedback on this topic will really help in planning out the next set of video tutorials for the Polymer Clay Library, as well as articles for the blog.
You sharing your reasons will have a big influence on the types of polymer clay techniques I teach. If you’re in it for the challenge of making something difficult and arty, the projects will lean towards those types of projects. Or, if you’re reasons are more business oriented, I can show you bead techniques that are profitable to make. Methods that can be produced efficiently in volume.
So be sure to speak up! Don’t be shy. The more I know about you and why you want to learn bead making, the better I can serve you as a community.
