sugarplum beads



These are, by far, the most popular beads this week. Could be the name. SugarPlums do sound yummy, and quite seasonal, which is no accident. But maybe it's the sweet simplicity of them that has people all frenzied over snapping them up. Maybe I'm over-thinking it, but part of my job... or one of my many jobs... is to figure out what's selling and why. I love to go all over the place with mad, rampant creativity, but sadly, that's not always what people want to buy. Sweet and simple pays the bills, while art for self-expression keeps me sane. I still won't do custom orders, but just so you know, I do pay attention to what people want more of. OK... I'll admit it... I want some of these too. I might even make a whole strand of them for myself. Yep, these are good beads.
