Skills and Techniques
Buttons are designed on my computer, printed out from my home printer, and then cut and pressed in my drawing room -- sometimes my cats interfere with one or all three steps in the process. A lot of pics are culls from image searches (Skinny Puppy and Edward Culver have ostensibly approved of my buttons using their images via Instagram pics, and also former members of The Moment and Merton Parkas when I was still on Etsy, and The Easybeats from a Mod weekender), and I really try to steer clear of currently-active bands,except when customer demand is high. (If you feel I've wronged you with any of my button designs, PLEASE message me **first** -- I'd rather stay in your good graces. Keep in mind, though, that my primary income is less than $975/month in disability allowance, and this has barely been qualifying as a secondary income since forced off Etsy, at a so-far less than $40/month, average. I'm no threat to your potential income -- none at all. I can barely pay my rent and bills, feed my cats and myself, and have less than $150 left to really live on. I'll gladly do custom bulk orders for you, if you choose to inquire.)
My beadwork is generally a spur-of-the-moment type of thing, whenever the inspiration strikes me, or someone can convince me to duplicate something (not hard to do, though if marked "one of a kind / OOAK" don't be surprised if I can't.
