Well, the pros are, of course, that you have an actual one-of-a-kind piece and that through the process, I can put a lot of creativity into each Botanical Tile. I think that is what I love the most. I make the molds by myself and I can use the same sort of flowers, but the great thing about this is, that no flower is the same. just like you and me, so the result will always be different. Lately, my head is flooded with ideas and combinations. I cannot wait to share all the collections and individual pieces I plan to create and release this year. There are infinite ways to create something unique. Luckily, there are just so many beautiful and different flowers and plants out there that I hope to share with everyone.
The cons about making unique, one-of-a-kind products would probably be that it is pretty time-consuming. Depending on the Tile’s size and complexity, I can only make one piece before starting on another one. Not to mention the Bee Houses, but luckily my husband helps me with those. First, he comes up with the shapes and sizes, and upon approval by me (haha), he puts them all together, and then I hand-paint them. The other thing is that some people have a hard time understanding why the price of a unique, handmade product is more expensive than that from a store.
