New Pendants on Etsy Tonight!

Tonight! Posting this in advance so people can be ready, because they've been selling too fast!

...and also to show off this sweet product photo which is totally the best one I've ever taken.

ETA:....and they're gone again. *flail* There will be another round later in the week! Thank you all!

I sat there refreshing the page every couple minutes while she was posting them - any given pendent didn't last more than 10 minutes once it was posted, and at least one was both posted and purchased between my hitting refresh.

Eek! Guess I'll wait. I'll bet someone is buying them and reselling at a higher price.

It might be pendant scalpers, but I think for the most part it really is just that Ursula has a huge fanbase and demand is far exceeding supply. I can't imagine I was the only one hitting refresh until a piece I really liked came up.

She does have the fan base, and we are all waiting!

And eventually the demand will slack off a bit as the people who really want pendants all nab one. OTOH, that's also when people like me will get into the act, and some people will want more than one.

On the gripping hand, if she's only posting a dozen at a time, it's going to take QUITE A WHILE for the demand to start slowing down!

I can only make like a dozen at a time, though! I swear it's not an attempt to create scarcity!

Oh, I get that! Even if you weren't doing anything else at all (and I know you always have other irons in the fire), doing the same thing over and over again takes both physical time and mental effort; you can only do so much of it at once before you need to take a break.

As a suggestion, on a different facet of the topic... you've said very firmly that you are not going to get into the area of doing commissions on these, and I can't blame you. But I think it might be worthwhile to consider some expansion of subject matter. I would be all over a hyena or wombat or Shadow pendant in this style, whether it was a one-of-a-kind or not. And new designs would help keep you from getting tired of doing the same stuff over and over again, too.

And eventually the demand will slack off a bit as the people who really want pendants all nab one.

Alternately, she has somehow discovered an example of an exception to the rule that demand eventually saturates, and she will be able to add a Nobel Prize in Economics to her "Wait, I won THIS?" shelf of awards.

I admit, that seems less likely; I suspect somewhere between the $50 and $500 price points, demand-production will meet supply-production. Contrariwise, it seems incautious to underestimate the potential of her weirdness magnet.
