To Bee or not to Bee - Favour question
« on: August 30, 2011, 10:01:18 AM »
Hello Crafters and Rennies!

I have developed some new favours for this fall, and wanted your opinion. Going off the play on words of my (character) last name "Swanbee" , I have made these little swans. I have also made a little bee, but m;lord thinks he looks odd hanging there, as he is attached by a chain. I cannot hang him from elsewhere, as he balances the swan a little. So the question is - should I keepthe bee, or leave the swan by itself?  Sorry for the quality of the pics - some have ye old renaissance towel as a back ground, and some m'lord's hat, as it was close at hand. These are clickable thumbnails - and apparently the second thumbnail is upside down - but when you click on it, it is right side up.

Just my opinion, but the bee makes it unique.  Lots of swans around; lots of bees; not many together.  You might want to add a little more to the connecting chain(?) to make the bee jiggle a bit as the wearer moves.

Bee.

If your character name was Swan, then I'd wonder, why the bee?  But the name is Swanbee, so a swan and a bee is perfect!  They are very pretty, and I couldn't imagine any of your friends being anything less than delighted with the gift!  You are quite talented!

Thanks for your feedback! I did some re working, and this is the finished product:





Now, if only I have the courage to actually hand them out!
