Oldies but goodies

I was looking through some old pictures of my earlier works and I discovered some really great designs (hope I'm allowed to say this about my own stuff). These are things that I have created in the past and didn't repeat again. I tend to stop making each design after a few times because I love to keep them in small series so that they remain unique.

Actually, my bird parade ring is an "old" design that I created a few years ago. I recreated the ring and uploaded to my etsy store. I was quite surprised at the reactions it got. I think it is more popular now than when I first made it! In fact it is one of my most popular items now.

I guess this is partly because the photograph turned out so great. You can see above the old photograph I had and how much better it looks now. I have even started expanding this design and I made similar bird parade earrings.

So I'm thinking of re-creating some additional designs to see if this success can repeat itself. Maybe I'll discover other creations that were retired too early.

go for it, I'd say, they're completely fresh to most people.
