Meet the snake! This is the year of the snake. I was very pleased with how the sequins worked out as snake scales! They go on so fast! I think I could sell this one for $25. My lack of sales at CHAC is pushing me to lower my prices. It is easier to do that when I can no longer recall exactly how many hours of beading went into a piece. The snake only took about 16. When I figure 1/3 of the price of an item is for gallery rent, boxing, and gallery staffing that means I am now making about $1 an hour. That is up considerably with the other animals. For them I figured I was making about 25 cents an hour. I am working on a fish now so I can try out the silver sequins.
