A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail from my very first Etsy customer explaining that she had lost one of the freshwater pearl and blue topaz earrings she’d purchased from my shop and asked if I could possibly replace it for her.  Of course, I happily obliged and I thought to myself, “Now there’s a benefit of buying handmade!”  To replace any mass produced item, she would have had to buy another pair.

As we went over logistics of matching her lone earring, she mentioned another item in my shop.  “If you ever make the freshwater pearl and chalcedony necklace in silver and blue topaz, let me know.”  I love custom orders and told her I’d be very happy to do just that if she was interested, which she was.  So, just yesterday, after snapping a quick shot in bad light, I shipped out a recreation of one of my favorite designs to its new home. I have to say, I LOVE it in the blue topaz!

Now her earring has a new BFF and she has a new necklace!
