I've made a couple of necklaces recently. The first I made after someone contacted me via my Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop, to say she liked one of my necklaces but could I make her one in black and silver, which I did, sharing progress with her every step of the way. This is the finished product
She then asked me to make a matching pair of earrings, again based on a design in my shop, which I did, again sharing progress with her every step of the way.
I have to admit that I did have a slight concern that she might not actually buy these items after asking me to make them, but I needn't have worried, she ordered them immediately and left a lovely review in my Etsy shop once she'd bought them.
I personally really like the black and silver colour scheme so I immediately made another necklace in that combination
and that one has already sold!
