History – I love custom orders more than any other order…they make people twice as happy when they can get “their perfect” piece of jewelry. They also inspire and embolden people to ask when they know I’m willing to do them.
Here is a sample from my Celtic Purple Triad ear cuff and earring Set. The original set is purple and someone ordered a version with black beads. Here they are side by side:
Unless the beads are more expensive, variations in color or the same bead style in a different finish are typically no more expensive than their original listing. These two are the same price, so don’t hesitate to ask about your favorite design and how it can be personalized for you. To see all the variations of the Celtic Purple series, go here. It’s variation, Celtic Darkness ear cuff & earring set is here.
One of the most fulfilling custom requests I have had the pleasure to work on was for a handfasting between a same-sex couple in Santa Barbara. She was so excited to receive her wedding ‘cuff and see that it matched the design of her headdress. I felt very privileged to be a part of their ceremony in my own small way.
One of my local networking friends wanted an ear cuff with her favorite type of jewelry decoration – peacock feathers. They presented a challenge because their main shafts are so delicate, so I came up with a way to attach them to a filigree cylindrical bead I could then thread a jump ring through and attach it to the ear cuff chain.
