I would really like to hear some honest opinions.

I placed another order with Darn Good Yarn and got more reclaimed sari ribbon. I also ventured into banana fiber yarn. I thought it might fulfill a need...I was told by several people that my pendants don't sell because they are not on a chain. I didn't provide chains (metal, beaded, leather, etc) because I kinda assumed most people were like me and have a crap load of chains at home in the lengths they prefer to wear. Not being well versed in any kind of chain/metal/wire, I put the word out on Facebook to see where people buy their metal chain in bulk. I was given several store names. I looked into them all then was paralyzed with indecision and fear of metal usage. Funny...I love wearing jewelry with metal in it...I just want someone else to make it, not me! So I ran from the metals and straight to Darn Good Yarn and started stringing the pendants on the sari and the banana fiber. I might still do it on chain that I will buy (eventually) but I really wanted to try it on these textured, funky fibers first.
