It was a hit! The crown I made as an alumni donation to the Vista High School art auction was a success. Several people wanted it, bid on it, and I already have two custom orders to start on.
I was totally happy that the person who won it is someone I don't know. Hopefully I can start something fun here, and maybe make a little profit:) One of the ladies I am making one for next wanted one for her woman's bible study. When each of the woman's birthdays come along she wants to have the crown for the birthday girl to wear, which I am sure will turn into a super fun tradition for them. I thought that was an awesome idea and I am realizing that these crowns are definitely not just for little girls.When I saw my former art teacher there she said "You could seriously go into business with those things. People really like the crown." I said "You know, I have have a mind to!" I definitely do plan to make more of these and put them on etsy, but I am not really sure what to charge for them. I valued the one I made for the auction at $50, but I really just picked a number because I had no clue. I was thinking maybe between $50 and $75? They are handmade and each one is totally unique. What do you think?
