Second and most important of the two rules to pendant painting happiness, no custom orders . Custom orders are only available with canvas art, not pendants. Unfortunately, offering that kind of work on my sand dollar pendants sucked the joy right from the air when I had to create them and that equals (=) no fun anymore. I'm stocking my ETSY shop with whatever tickles my fancy in the sand dollar department. What I will have at any given time is a mystery and I will paint new pieces every once in a while, when the spirit moves me, which equals (=) keeping the fun in my miniature art.
