Degan wants to know who these strange New York dogs he smells are.

He and Harlow would NOT leave the wrapping alone!

Yes! I did...(I think that made me even more excited about the package!)

I managed to stay in the studio til 1am tonight to get this Christmas ornament finished for my mom's friend. I am a huge perfectionist, so I won't even lie, it is HARD for me to post this picture. I can see a lot of things I wish I could fix. BUT I really am happy with it.

Without further adieu...

Wow! That's awesome! How much would you charge for something like that?

Thanks for the compliments guys! I was really pleased with it.

I have been thinking about this since you asked, and still haven't come up with a solid answer yet. That ornament is pretty large. I just used scrap copper pieces so it wasn't all that expensive to make, but the issue I'm having is deciding what my time is worth. This is a problem I have with ALL of my artwork.

That piece was much more complicated than most, because each tier of the tree was individually cut, sawed, filed, and sanded--so it was really time consuming. Of course now that I have made one, I know how to go about making more which would make it go more quickly.

I think $30 seems like an okay price for that specific piece...It's about six inches tall.

( Please tell me if that screams rip off to anyone! )

I am going to work on some dog-bone shaped ornaments this week. Those would certainly be less expensive.

Honestly, for a hand-made ornament out of those materials I'd say that's reasonable. :)

That ornament is GORGEOUS!
I think you could even charge upwards of $40 for something that extensive and elaborate. :D

If you make dog tags, though, my suggestion to you is to use tighter split rings.
Obviously, that ornament is not going on a dog, so those split rings are fine.

I LOVE that ornament!!!! It's beautiful. AND unique. :D
