What are your beliefs on selling kandi?

I apologize if I happened to offend anyone by asking where I should sell kandi. I now realize that not everyone thinks that it's ok. My personal take on it is that it's ok. Maybe i just shouldn't call it kandi when i sell it since I'm not a raver. I basically really enjoy the craft but wouldn't feel very comfortable being in a huge crowd with lots of bright lights and loud sounds. Now my question is what are your beliefs on selling kandi? I would love to here what you have to say.

it's not kandi if you're selling or buying it because it eliminates the entire point of making it as kandi in the first place. either way, if i was going to sell, i'd only sell bigger creations like masks or bikinis because singles and cuffs are easy to access and easy to make. imo selling singles feels almost counterproductive since the whole point is that they're simple but personal and so can be traded to a lot of people at an event. also, trading kandi without going to an event isn't entirely out of the question. just look around for trade groups that operate per mail or start a thread on here or on reddit's r/kandi. glhf

I believe there’s nothing wrong with selling kandi creations, just like any other craft you make or form of art you make. If you want to sell it then by all means. If you don’t want to then you don’t have to. People who get hostile over whether it’s right to sell it or not are crazy in my opinion. Like if it’s not yours then don’t worry about what others do with their creations

Do whatever you want with your bead creations, its your art, and a "deeper meaning" keeping you from selling it doesn't apply if you don't see it that way. I would advertise it as kandi though, since that's what most people will search when buying it.

(ok so I'm totally new 2 this. I don't know much abt kandi culture so bare with me. But i would like 2 learn)

Anyways, I understand why people wouldn't like them being sold because there more then" just beads" to some people. I'm like you, I couldn't go 2 a rave lol. But at the end of the day they r ur creations, so it's really up 2 u. They may just not be considered kandi to some then I guess?
