Oh my goodness. I have resisted all the beautiful faery beads due to no paypal but I'm going to have to fix that problem as I'm going to have to buy this wonderful lock. What an awesome design! A lock I will love to see when the bracelet turns over! I didn't see this until today-is there a sign up list?

Faerybeads Art Nouveau Fairy Lock - limited # of locks available for pre-order!

The Art Nouveau movement emerged in fin-de-siecle Paris and was showcased at the "Paris Exposition Universelle" in 1900. For a brief time it blossomed into the twentieth century. Art Nouveau was a new art form, an original artistic and decorative movement inspired by the idea of "total art" which essence is described by sensuous lines and subtle light, feminine figures and curly hair, fluent dresses and attitudes, vegetal curves and willow leaves, twisting waves and evanescent smoke, but also by controlled lines, geometric details, colorful new shapes. Turn-of-the-century uncertainty fostered a sense of mystery and fantasy in design. Motifs included orchids, irises, pansies, vines, swans, peacocks, snakes, dragonflies, mythological creatures, and the female silhouette.

Well yes, I'm sorry! However it's because these require a lot of time to be cast, assembled and finished by hand by my goldsmiths here in the Netherlands. The dragon locks in that respect did not break even Rolling Eyes ... certainly not with the discount. Lesson's learned but I decided that such a beautiful design as in Linda's drawings needed to be realized whatever the # of sales. Additionally it is not a mass product made far away against a much different (environmental) cost and different compensation, that likely you and I can't imagine someone would work for/in. The ethical aspects of producing a luxury product have always concerned me, so I figured I'd do my best to do it different. Perhaps one day you'll like it even better because of that, and enjoy wearing it proudly.

It's such a difficult one isn't it! Personally I prefer to pay more for ethically produced products (and for those that are made with skill and care and precision, so they're an investment that lasts), but sadly it sometimes makes things out of reach that I really really want! Such things are worth saving up for though I think if you really love it Very Happy

Thank you for understanding! I love you I often get inquiries about prices and/or discounts but in fact it is altogether a 'different product' from other brands and incomparable to retailers offering deals. So far this adventure has been for me an investment only... I still have got to see a first surplus... Rolling Eyes but the satisfaction and pleasure to create something delicate and beautiful outweighs the current balance on my bank account. At least it stopped me from buying other brand's beads like I used to. Laughing

An item such as this is individually crafted art as opposed to the mass-produced items from countries where labour is cheap and working conditions are often inhumane. It is more expensive but even apart from any ethic concerns (an aspect I'll admit I often overlook) it's sometimes worthwhile to have something where we can feel individual personality and joy of creation.

Have been busy baking and cleaning all day preparing for 22 people for Thanksgiving dinner!  I hope I'm not too late to get one.  Will go to the website right now.........purchased.  I will call it a Christmas present from me to me.  Can't wait.  I have two granddaughters and when they visit me,  a garden fairy named Nissa visits and leaves them a special present.  It's a nice tradition and I have fun shopping for little trinkets from the fairy.  Love Hug Love
