I Need You!

HELP!

Considering how much traffic has viewed my Jewelry Tutorial I and Jewelry Tutorial II, (a huge heap of thanks goes to Rena Klingenberg and her Jewelry Business Blog for featuring my tutorial a while ago), I think it's about time to make another. But I'd like to hear some opinion from my readers. I also think I may start making some really detailed ones and sell them on Etsy as downloadable files. There is a woman in Thailand who does that for $5 each, and seems to sell them pretty well.

So, here's a list of media in which I would feel comfortable making a tutorial:
  1. silversmithing in general
  2. soldering
  3. turning your jewelry designs into reality
  4. beaded work, perhaps making a successful random design
  5. stained glass projects (maybe my Christmas tree earrings?)
  6. pastel paintings
  7. cuff bracelets
  8. painting composition (decide what of a landscape scene to include)
  9. bezel setting stones
  10. insert your idea: ________________.

Please take a moment to comment so I can make plans!

Thanks,

Pastel Guy

Hello Matthew, thanks for the link and follow. Just to let you know that I am an admirer of your work and arts.
By the way, my name is Mei a.k.a WireBliss :) I am the "woman in Thailand" you are referring to as the link brought me to my blog :).
Hmm..actually I am from Malaysia.
But no problem there and nice to know you.

I'd love to learn how you make your cuff bracelets. They are really cool!

I was actually thinking about doing a tutorial myself, it seems like a fun idea. I wasn't sure if it was a good way to generate traffic or to sell, since you're giving away you secrets!!! I spent last night thinking about it and decided that I might do a free on for the things that are pretty basic or techniques that have been around for a while. As for things that I came up with myself, I think I might do one that I charge for. What do you think?
