More jewellery and bead custom orders

The jewellery making frenzy continues. I am now, however, trying to do some bead-making alongside; seeing if that will help me round the problems I mentioned a while back. So, if you have any bead custom order requests, let me know. It’s probably better if you message me through Etsy, as the whole comments thing on this blog continues to be a bit of a nightmare (no, scratch that, a total nightmare). I’m afraid I can’t take custom orders for the moths – sorry! If I had to make them to order I think my head would blow pretty soon. Most other things are okay, I think. Also, if you do want something, please let me know sooner rather than later because I can’t always take custom orders; right now, I have a bit of time when I can. One other thing: it will be a few weeks before things are ready, perhaps up to four to six weeks.

Anyway, here’s the new jewellery. Sorry, but I’m feeling far too lazy to add the bead makers’ names (I know I should!). Mind you, it’s mostly stuff from my regular band of favourites, and if you’re interested in either art beads or my jewellery, you’ll probably be able to recognise them for yourself.

Important Stuff about Bead Custom Orders

I’m starting work on a new batch of beads.

I have lots of plans for new designs and I’m looking forward to coming up with other new things as I go along. I’m also planning on making more of the beads that have been particularly popular in the past. One thing I have noticed in previous updates is that there are certain designs that sell out very quickly.

In the past, I’ve had a number of people be disappointed that they haven’t been able to bag the beads they wanted. I could just make extra of all the beads I think are or might be popular, but it occurred to me that it would make sense if I offered customers this opportunity to place custom orders for things they particularly want, whether it be things they’ve missed out on or things they’ve had in the past and would like to buy again.

If that’s you then could you please message me using the following address: somethingtodobeads@gmail.com. Unfortunately, the comment function on this blog is, well, bloody useless, so a message would be much safer.

Also, do have a look at my Sold Items in the Etsy shop to see if there’s anything there that you fancy.

I’m afraid that I won’t be making any of the polymer or patina pieces you might find there, but there’s plenty of ceramic items from which to choose.

[A brief aside: there will also hopefully be a limited amount of patinated chain!]

The firing schedule that I’m falling into means that I’m not always in a position to take custom orders, or if I can, it’s often the case that I’ll have to ask the customer to wait for a month or usually more. So, I hope taking advance orders now will suit some of you.  No upfront payment is required, however.

So, the email address again: somethingtodobeads@gmail.com.  If you could title your emails ‘Custom Order’ that would be really helpful.
