Faux Pas

About this design:

I had a hard time coming up with a design I liked with the hummingbird...this I guess is ok. I made a big boo boo yesterday... I sold a bracelet that I couldn't find! I turned the house upside down and couldn't find it. Fortunately the buyer was very nice about it, and she picked out a pair of earrings instead. Needless to say, I took a thorough inventory today. Everythings accounted for except that bracelet.


Golem pendant, ceramic bead, Amazonite flower, Agates, Czech glass, copper chain, waxed linen, rainbow freshwater pearls, Green Kyanite, Rock Crystal shard, Aqua Chalcedony, Yellow Opal and brass lobster

    Love the way you echo the colors in the Golem pendant. I had a similar boo-boo happen when I was selling “collectibles” on eBay. Cat earrings disappeared. Never did find them. My customer was nice too.

    I also love the way you played up the colors in the Golem pendant. And the softness in the pearl necklace is so pretty.
    I also lost a necklace. Everyone searched for it. Couldn’t find it anywhere. So I made another similar to it. Now both are in the same container.

    I just lost one of my favorite bracelets while visiting my mom. It’s somewhere in her guest bedroom. So perplexing. Drives me crazy when I can’t find something. So nice of your customer to be understanding. I especially like the pearl necklace. It’s just lovely.

    Thanks everyone for your much appreciated comments! I actually sent this customer a gift…another pair of earrings that I had forever. I think it’s good business…maybe she will be a return buyer. After all I’m not really in this for the money…it’s my passion!
