Default Re: Wondering where the centers come from???

I recently started making clay centers. My main customers are bow makers and they have been a great success here on HG! It is difficult pricing these things because it takes A LOT of work and time to make these little guys (more time than any of my other crafts) but I also understand that my customers have to resell so I try to keep the prices as low as I can....and no I dont make a ton of money. I have full time job, and this is just a fun thing I do on the side.

Let me know if anyone has any questions or would like to place an order

I've purchased the poly beads from B&Y Creations on Ebay http://stores.ebay.com/B-Y-Creations...=p4634.c0.m322 and I was really happy with them. They are made to order so she'll do flatback and without holes. Her prices aren't too bad, and the beads I got were really great! I've also heard great things about Mistye's beads too!

She has some beautiful things. Luv the Fancy Nancy one. My DD would have a fit for that.

I know some bow makers buy from this shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/melaniescrafts
Her polymer clay centers are so adorable, and her prices aren't too bad. I'm just never sure if I could get my $$ back out of a bow including the pricey centers. Big bows don't do well for me here.

I've bought from B&Y Creations on Ebay also. Pictures do not do justice to her items. These bows centers are so detailed and darling.

They had some last night at Hobby Lobby that is in the christmas decorations. They are of course Christmas, but there in the tiny decorations. You could use them for this, or at least I am going to try. They are half off this week as well.

I just got some of Misty's centers in the mail on Saturday. They are so, so pretty, and I have no idea how she gets such detail in the tiny faces. It's definitely an art!

Thank you for the shout out SnL Mommy.

I make lots of bow centers. I just did a blog post with a bunch of the new ones I made. http://melaniescrafts.blogspot.com/2010/11/on-my-clay-table.html. You will also find some photos on my facebook fan page, http://www.facebook.com/#!/WhimsicalCreations

On average my bow centers are $2.50 each.
