Some people don't take custom requests. I'm not sure why. Perhaps they feel like it's more of a hassle than they want to deal with, but I like to do them. It's another way to get your creative juices flowing. Perhaps the customer wants something that you would never have thought of. Hooray for that! I seem to get stuck in a rut when it comes to designing. I need to branch out a little bit and custom requests can often create spark an idea that comes to fruition later on in another design.
I also listed a rhodonite bracelet and matching earrings yesterday. They're not being sold as a set though. I have trouble selling sets for some reason.
I like bracelets. I used to wear them all the time (until a certain baby would pull them off). I need to do more of them, they're so fun. I'm just not sure what size to make them. My wrist is 7 inches so I can wear anything from 7 1/2-8 inch bracelets.
The first one sold the other day (yay!), but I have more stones to make a few more of those. I'm listing them so the customer can choose their own length. It secures with my own handforged and hammered hook and eye clasp. (I also intend to do this in as many large solitaire stones as I can affordably get my hands on!)
Here's a peek at another pair of earrings I fell in love with after they were finished. They are now for sale in my shop. I think they look sort of Victorian and old worldly.
Well, they say it's supposed to snow today. HA! I'll believe it when I see it. I wish Kevin could play in some real snow, this time more than slush, but it may not start snowing until too late for him to get to play in it. Right now it's raining, making for a very gloomy day. If this was snow it would be pretty outside already. But it's just rain.
Thank you to SandAndSkyCreations for participating in the Treasure Hunt! She chose these earrings as her prize from MsBelle!
