This is probably the most elaborate way someone showed me an ad.

She still won't like you tho.

Edit: For anyone wondering, "deleted" told everyone she wouldn't like them, she just wants to sell her stuff, and finally, "deleted" linked her Etsy page. It's kind of poetic, but in a pathetic way

What's your rig system look like since nobody ever fucking post that kind of cool shit


smalaki t1_irvxmg0 wrote

my hunch is that work on these items are outsourced to local artisans and not made by the shop owner herself


I'm happy to be corrected though. I would like to see the wire working rigs!


romaraahallow t1_irxsjbr wrote

Rigs? Pliers, hands and dedication.

There's your rig.


SaltLakeCitySlicker t1_iryca0z wrote

I make wire trees. Same thing. Snips for cutting, hemostats with the serrations covered so it doesn't dent the metal for tougher bends and round nose serrationless pliers for more delicate bending


Adiwik t1_irwe8yy wrote

Well with all the people constantly posting their metalworking and shit like that on here they never do Post the vids of them doing it, and surely someone want to keep their technique secret or whatever but that's not what I'm asking for

Why so aggressive? It's not like they posted a link to their shop here or something. Just coming off as a weird gatekeeping asshole.


Adiwik t1_irwe1s4 wrote

Maybe you're projecting here, but there's a jewelry thread somewhere.


LjSpike t1_irx30vt wrote

Isn't sharing cool creations they put their heart into upon a media sharing sub openly, and providing free videos talking about the creation process on the internet, "giving something back"?

Also, what are they "taking" from you by posting this?


Adiwik t1_irxfzj6 wrote

Your devils advocate is neato, they can share it on anything. Attack someone else who cares for your platitudes.


L_knight316 t1_irxkwov wrote

Gotta say, this is the single most butt hurt example of jealousy I've seen on this site in years. You aren't owed anything by people sharing the cool stuff they make.


fuqdeep t1_iryno9m wrote

Ill never understand how people like you can be against self promotion. How the fuck else are people supposed to sell their stuff?

stuff your foot in your mouth. you'd do more to think on that then be the popcorn on a 10 hr post. really.


BoneFriend t1_irxwp4u wrote

Do you also get angry at ads for not giving you free shit? Do you demand street vendors walk you through their process? Talk about entitlement, you didn’t build this platform and no one owes you a damn thing

Also, this is r/gifs ffs, get over yourself

It's a labradorite, lapis lazuli don't have that shine ("the schiller effect").

labradorite! i should have recognized it right away, its one of my favorite stones. that an opalite


freakers t1_irx1uvh wrote

Neat. I always thought those were called torc's. A quick search now says torc's are worn around the neck. Steven Erickson apparently has been using the wrong term in his Malazan Book of the Fallen series.

You do nice work, too bad this is just another self-promotion commercial post like the 100's of others you do. Has it really been 14 days since your last /r/gifs post? Time flies by.

>You do nice work, too bad this is just another self-promotion commercial post like the 100's of others you do. Has it really been 14 days since your last /r/gifs post? Time flies by.

And what's so wrong with that? Major brands market their shit on Reddit all the time, why are you so up in arms about this one person doing it too?


CockGobblin t1_irxxmzz wrote

They should mark it as an Ad. I have adblocker to stop seeing ads. If I wanted to see Ads, I'd use Chrome.


DorisCrockford t1_iryis5h wrote

Makes me wonder how many of the comments are alt accounts. Stunning! Did anybody say stunning?

Wow, you saved the day. Here, have a medal. I typically sell these medals on Etsy at but this one for you will be a gift. Enjoy my handmade state-of-the-art medal, made entirely by hand out of med and al.

Joking aside, there's no call to action. This isn't a straight up ad. It's just someone sharing their work. Just enjoy looking at it. They're not telling you to buy it.


CockGobblin t1_iryq4gl wrote

> This isn't a straight up ad.

OK. Look at their post history, they post this stuff often then give their Etsy link / "check my profile" in the comments when someone happens to say, "this is beautiful, do you sell them?"

In the last thread on /r/gifs, the 3rd top comment has her promoting her business.


-Captain--Obvious- t1_is2gx3r wrote

If someone asks for a link to buy them, then that isn't an ad. That's someone asking where they can buy them. If OP were putting a call to action straight away in the post, with a call to action directly in one of the photos, then yeah, that's an ad. As an artist and jewelrysmith myself, I see nothing wrong with this post.


CockGobblin t1_is2hl9p wrote

An account that ONLY posts/comments on their work is an account used for marketing. Look at their post history - they don't use reddit for any other purpose than to solicit clients. (I went back 30 days; only posts/comments on their stuff. They don't comment in any threads on the subs they submit too - unlike you or I, who are engaging in posts/comments that aren't our own)


-Captain--Obvious- t1_is388iu wrote

Seems like their marketing scheme is working then if you're spending so much time looking at their account.


CockGobblin t1_is6dv73 wrote

Is that all you have to say?

It is okay to admit that this is a spam post. I won't fault you for your misguided beliefs.

phenomenal piece!

What kind of wire was used?


Buffyferry OP t1_irznac7 wrote

It's silver plated copper wire that is also coated, so it won't tarnish. For the "gold" tree I used brass wire. 1.2 and 0.3 mm.

So another tree.

The same tree that every wire worker makes.

How do people like these things when they're all identical?


romaraahallow t1_irxsvl1 wrote

Homie, I've made wire trees before, but not incorporated into a well made armlet, with a nice stone like that as the focal point.

But yeah, just another tree.

Also, look at the symmetry involved on the face of the armband. That shit is not easy to do by hand, not like you'd know.


GentlePenetration t1_is0h7lh wrote

Irrelevant. It is the same design that's made by absolutely everyone. It isn't unique. It isn't even good looking. But sure, keep simping for someone where every single thing on their Reddit page is the same low quality arm band or ring.


drfish t1_iryciji wrote
