Custom Order

Do you take custom orders?

The benefit of custom orders is that the items are sold when you make them.  The drawback is that the creative impulse is limited.  That is, your choice of beads, style, or color has been defined before work starts.

I had a custom order as a result of a home show I did in February.  The customer liked work that I was showing but wanted it in a different color.  When the customer was presented with two bracelets she not only wanted those two bracelets but wanted three more.  In addition, a friend of the customer viewing the bracelets also ordered a bracelet.  That is how I came to make three very similar white bracelets and two very similar black bracelets. 

Below is a collage of the bracelets.  If you click on the picture you can view a larger version.  You can see individual photos at my Flickr stream.
Custom Order Silver Plate Bracelets


  1. Oh you have been busy and those bracelets are KILLER gorgeous! Thanks so much for the eye candy today!

  2. Thanks Kristen. These are fun to make, and fast once you have the beads picked out. Plus, they are silver plate so they aren't very expensive.
