Please don't take this journal entry the wrong way - this IS NOT intended to be bitchy or nasty or negative... I would just like people's opinions on this because I am... totally confused.
I'm sure none of you would do this but please DO NOT send this person abuse or hassle her or whatever. If you want to say anything please do so here! Only spread positivity please
So... I was browsing through Etsy and I came across this totally cute stone ornament. It's really very sweet, so I clicked on it... and then I looked at the price.
As far as I know, the ornament in question is literally a stone, like one you would find lying around anywhere, with a face crudely painted onto the front.
I shit you not.
Another example... A piece of wood with an eye painted on it. It's now a Driftwood Dragon. $105.
Here is the item... and by all means have a browse around her shop and purchase if you like anything! www.etsy.com/listing/109645449…
Again, I would never be so obnoxious as to question the seller or spread negativity. Afterall, all the stone artwork she creates is original and pretty darn cool, and what she does in her spare time doesn't effect me in the slightest. No one is MAKING me purchase her art.
I just... I mean...urgh... blurgh. Can't even articulate my puzzlement.
Am I alone in my confusion? Please someone point out some vital detail I've missed. Please someone give me an insight! I love nearly all forms of art and stone art (?) is no exception. It's an awesome idea. But would you pay that much?? I mean... it's like the greatest business idea since bottled water! I'm envious I didn't think of it first haha!
I don't mean to cause offense, I'm just baffled and looking for some kind of explanation without hassling the actual artist. Insights please!!
