Why Do HSN Top Quality Designers Cheapify Their Goods???
Why do HSN top quality designers always end up either cheapifying their goods, or they disappear altogether (ala, Joan Boyce). The entire lure/attraction to Heidi’s jewelry line was the Swarovski crystals she used (well known in the industry to be the best). Her followers are Swarovski fans – those that have lots of Swarovski jewelry – so what does she do? – starts buying cheap crystals from China – goodbye quality line. Marlawynne – known for her superior line of fabrications & quality – what does she do? – starts using cotton & acrylic far cheaper fabrications – quality of goods – “going down” – why can’t these designers get what it is that put them on the map??? Joan Boyce – top fave designer – gone – what did HSN do wrong to lose her??? Either their few quality designers cheapify their goods – or they disappear – why can’t HSN & their designers get that some shoppers are actually shopping quality & cater to them as well as those that are merely shopping price?????
That’s really a shame. I know Heidi and Marla both have huge followings. I have a few Heidi pieces that I enjoy. How do you know she is no longer using Swarovski? Did she say something, or did NOT saying something clue you in? I love the sparkle of Swarovski.
@maryf1962 It’s been a few years since Heidi made her pieces on HSN with all Swarovski Crystals. Now and then she’ll bring us a Swarovski Crystal piece but the majority are ‘Heidi Crystals’ or just crystals. I am a huge Heidi collector and notice the difference. In addition to the change in crystals, it seems like her metal has changed. The quality is not the bronze tone metal she is known for. I love my jewelry and Heidi pieces but I buy very few pieces from HSN. I want the quality pieces from 5+ years ago. I agree with the original poster about vendors cheapening their products for a lower price point on HSN.
