Default Wondering where the centers come from???

I never post links to shops of people that I don't know but I LOVE the style of this lady's bows. I love the centers of her bows... I'm not sure if they are resins or what but I am wondering where she gets them at or where I could find some similar. Also... What type of bow is on the very bottom of most of her bows? I keep thinking that whatever type of bow it is, it's upside down. I love the style and I LOVE her pilgram bow... Cute ribbon too... I have never seen the "gobble gobble" turkey ribbon before.
Any thoughts??? Here is the link to her etsy site...

I think that's an upside down twisted boutique bow on the bottom and that most of the centers look like "poly clay." You can search it on here and on etsy. There are a lot of talented ppl who make those. I think I've seen that ribbon at either TRR or RABOM. HTH.

Looks like some of the clay centers are from here:
http://stores.ebay.com/Ladybug-Beads

She doesn't have any up right now, but you can still see what she makes by looking at the ended listings.

I have researched a few polymer embellishments on ebay and etsy... I am having a hard time finding any that are less than $4... How does anyone make much money off of the bow if the center alone costs them $4? I guess they just bump up the price...

Yes, if I sell a bow with a fancy clay center, then I have to bump up the price. I don't charge more than I paid for it (up to $3.50 plus shipping), but I have to recoup my costs.

I can do simple ones myself, but can't do the fancy ones that the talented polymer clay artists can do!! So I have to buy those.

I do the same as well....I just add the price I paid for the center plus shipping. I am not looking to make money off the center....it is just an added piece to enhance my bow.
