Each Saturday, one of the contributing editors of ABS will share with you some of the things going on in their studio. We encourage you to participate by commenting to the post. And as an incentive, we will offer a small prize each week, given to one random commenter!
Last week's winner is Jean Yates! Jean wins one of Tari's Tie Dye buttons! Congratulations, Jean! Please send an email to the ABS Suggestion Box and Tari will send out the button right away!
Now on to the studio tour for today....Cindy Gimbrone's flamework glass studio.
Inspiration and innovation is all around us and sometimes directed at us, like when someone makes a suggestion. About a month ago, a potential customer emailed me a request: Could I make a rainbow colored spiral? Interesting suggestion, I thought and sent back an email saying,"Absolutely! Give me two weeks!"
The spiral is a style of bead I make regularly so I wasn't concerned about the shape so much as maintaining the transparency of the colors. All worked out and I was so happy with the results that I've add the Rainbow Spiral to my regular line.
I appreciate suggestions from customers, sometimes they lead to a new bead! My question for readers today is:
What is the best suggestion you ever received?
The prize for today's comments will be one of my Rainbow Spiral beads! Good luck! I look forward to reading your comments!
