Talisman Experiments


I seem to have more ideas for talisman variations than time to make them!  I had an idea that I wanted to do a black one, initially intending for the background and beads to be all black (or variations), but, somehow, colour has crept in.  I have started to name them, this one is named after the Welsh goddess, Cerridwyn.

I have been experimenting with arty photos of the talismans.  I am gradually getting them listed in my Etsy shop at last and I thought the different angles would add a bit of pizzazz to the listings.  Although I have had this Etsy shop for a couple of years now, I have never used it properly, partly because my stock tends to sell before I get the chance to list anything.

I can understand why your stock sells so quickly. You have a beautiful shop, Rolina! Wishing you lots of success with it. Love Cerridwyn!

Jessica - you will have to come here and I will show you - bring Daya, too!

Thanks Chris, I am terrible at promoting it, so they may end up being sold elsewhere, but I thought I would give it a try, anyway.

This is just stunning, Rolina and I'm loving that you're naming them now. It certainly got my curiosity bug going!

Rolina said...

Thank you very much, Jennifer, Linda, Joy and Winn!

Funnily enough, Jennifer, I was remembering the ever-popular grey and red colour scheme of the early 80s.

I don't know how it would have looked all in black, but I love how it ended up. The color really emphasized the talisman with nice repetition in the background and a few beads. Perfect to me.

Rolina said...

Yippee! (and phew, I get anxious)

I am so glad you are happy with her and that she arrived safely.

Thanks so much, Jessica!
