This is a collection of hair clips I purchased from a PCAGOE friend, nkdesigns.
Sometimes I hear people asking artists and crafters why they purchase items in their own field of work. As in, "You make jewelry - why do you buy it instead of making your own?" Here are some reasons I buy from other polymer clay artists:
- I love polymer clay. We all love the medium we work in, right? If not, perhaps a change is in order!
- When you work with a certain material or technique, you have a greater appreciation than the average bear of the skill required, and therefore enhanced appreciation of the final product.
- I love to have items made by people whose work I admire, especially those who I'm getting to know online.
- The fact that I work with clay doesn't mean I necessarily have the time, inclination or skills to make certain items.
- My hair is unruly :)
