Delivering a Custom Order


Delivered a custom order today--a sterling silver and Chrysoprase ring. Custom orders are always a little stressful, whether it's a painting or jewelry. What if the client doesn't like it?!?! I've never actually had that happen, but I always worry about it. 

An added difficulty on this one was that I had to purchase the stone and the patterned silver. I was worried about ordering the stone without having seen it in person. 
It all turned out perfectly. I delivered the ring today and the client loved it!



I am rereading the Game of Thrones books--had forgotten how much I enjoyed them. I've never watched the show, although I've heard great things about it. Sometimes I like a book so much I don't want to watch a movie or tv series. I feel that way about the Outlander books. Best books ever. Seriously. Haven't had the heart to watch the show, because what if Jamie isn't as awesome in the show as he is in the books?

Also have a new.secret weapon in my cleaning arsenal. Ill write more about that tomorrow.

Hooking up with Paint Party Friday.

The ring is exquisite. I read Outlander, I like the shows (free preview) and love the Thrones (free preview) but haven't read that one. Thanks for the visit. Blessings, Janet PPF

What a lovely setting for the stone and the markings on the silver ring are beautiful too.
I think if you read a book first you don't like the film and vice versa, at least that's what I've found.

that ring is just beautiful and I love the color of the stone. No wonder your client loves it. I have the same problem with custom orders: always worrying they're not going to like it, and feeling as if I can't do "my thing". I'd rather not do it ....
