I wanted to share a little project I finished. My dear friend Stacy (who just posted an awesome blog post about marketing your handcrafted business) had contacted me a little bit ago about making a few pairs of earrings for her. I absolutely love doing custom orders because the design is a reflection of the personality of the person that will be wearing the piece. So Stacy had fallen in love with a few sets of lampwork glass beads from Julsbeads etsy store. If you've been following my blog, you'll know how much I ♥ Julsbeads... like seriously, bucket list = lottery + move her to my house to design just for me. Ahhh.... back to reality.
So Stacy purchased from Juls and had her ship the bead sets directly to me. Because Juls Beads just speak to me so much, I received the package in the mail on Friday and they immediately spoke to me. Both sets! I know, crazy when inspiration hits that fast... but it happens.
I sat down at my work table, played with some complimentary stones and wire and as my sweetie was walking in from work I had created two masterpiece pairs of glass earrings that I know Stacy will love!
This isn't the first time Stacy and I have done this. She'll find beads or pendants that just speak to her, but she doesn't make jewelry. We work great together as she tells me what she would like made, and I design a completely unique piece of jewelry for her to be proud of.
If you're in the same boat as Stacy, and just ooohhh and ahhhhh over a set of beads or a pendant, and would like something special made, you're welcome to contact me. We can discuss the options available and what you are looking for and I'll created a unique piece of handmade beaded jewelry you will love!
