I have random jewelry stuffs that I've collected over the years and I was making a necklace and went "Hey, I've seen hair pins in amazing customs..." *Lightbulb*



So. Yay, nay?

The other little beads are other 'sets' that I have; they could be made into hair pins. Also, silver chain and pins are available.

I have tons of other little things that could be the jewels... and I could also go to a craft store. But basically, I'm curious what your opinion is.

i would probably by them. Smile i've seen hairpins like these on many customs around here, but i at least am not sure how to make them myself, so i would probably end up buying them if i had money for it. Smile

Nice ones.
I don't know if I'd buy them as I'm horrible at styling hair and could make them myself but they really are cute. I'd just shorten the chain a little. :-)

Ha ha, yeah, I'd never be able to style hair either! You see how I totally faked it with Dream Weaver?

For those of you that said no, why not?

If I were making an oriental style custom I would buy them depending on the price. Smile

I'm not sure why people said no, but one possibility might be that they already have stuff to make them themselves.....

I could make these myself, which is why it would be a no for me, but I imagine a lot of people would love them!

I think they are cute, I would get some depending on the price..

As for the “no” voters....this is a reason why I dislike polls sometimes, it is easy to hit no but there isn’t really an explanation as to why they don’t like them/ don’t want them. It is the safety of being anonymous, plus I think that some people just like to hit no for the heck of it. xD

I clicked other. I could probably figure out how to make them myself, I'm super horrible at styling hair, so I probably would never use them. But they are super cute and I might be tempted to buy them depending on the price.

If I were you, I'd definitely give it a try even if a lot of people vote no because they can make them, themselves. Smile There are still a lot of people out there that don't have the supplies or the know-how for some things like this, but on a customs board you might run into a lot of people that can utilize pieces of accessories that are commonly found in stores. Wink

Just saying that I've run into just about every piece of bead/jewelry pictured here, and own the majority of what you posted... maybe if you tried something more elaborate and used rarer beads or ornaments, you might get more "yeses".

Hoping this might be of help. Big Ups

I'd suggest trying out customized orders too. If you took 'commissions' on pieces to make as well as having stock-on-hand so to speak, you'd probably have better luck.

The reason I say that is you might have a lot of pretty accessories made and ready to be shipped, but they might not be the right colors or the right style, so I think taking commissions on accessories to make would be good too.

What mana-maiden pointed out is good too though. If you're getting supplies at a chain store like Walmart, Michael's, etc, it's good to remember that people will probably find the exact same supplies. If it's available, you may wanna try to get supplies at a local craft store unique to your area, if it isn't too expensive, where the supplies might be more unique.

As for me personally, it would totally depend on the price, because if I can make something cheaper myself, then I will.

All of that said, they are super cute - I love those kind of hair accessories, especially for oriental customs.

I wouldn't buy any, but that is because I know how to make them myself. But if i didn't know how, I would buy some depending on price and complexity. I like complicated hair ornaments so i wouldn't buy very simple ones.

If you want some really nice supplies though, I would suggest checking out your local bead shop too.
