Japanese Necklaces

I've been making these necklaces for a few years and they sell well as gifts for all ages of women.  I always love the variety that the hand made pendants paired with chirimen cord provide. Pendants shown in this post are by the lovely ladies from Chinook and Round Rabbit. All are listed in my Made it Store.





Etsy has been so slow that I'm focussing on Made it these days - seems to be lots of looking but not much buying on Etsy. No sales since April. I'm curious to hear if anyone else has found Etsy tailing off. Since the rules of who can sell have expanded its appeal has diluted in my humble view. What are your thoughts?

Chunky Wooden necklaces 3 versions

I have had some large pendants that I bought from Round Rabbit a while ago, and they are seriously much bigger than I usually bead with, leaving me somewhat perplexed as to what to do with them. I set up a pattern and basically modified from there with colour.
