We do custom orders

>> Thursday, August 27, 2009

Millie recently did a custom order. Fran had seen her brass necklace set on the Bead Sisterhood site and loved it. She really wanted a set to match an outfit. But she wanted the beads to be darker brown/green rather than the purplish hue on the original design. And could she have smaller earrings and a bracelet to match too? So Millie waved her "magic wand" and made it all happen as you can see in these pictures. What really happened was Millie not only made the set but she also made all the brass jump rings by hand!


The website went down and we are mad!!

Stressed Woman Holding Head
The picture above just about sums up the hair-pulling frustration over the weekend when the Bead Sisterhood site went down, allegedly for non-payment of fees! Tamara, our "webmistress", was fit to be tied for we were paid up and the hosting company was not responding to urgent emails. The site's up now but we're still not impressed and neither would anyone who tried to access it.


Vintage crystal bead jewelry makeover

>> Sunday, August 9, 2009

Today was the first time we almost made a client cry. In a good way. She had come to pick up several pieces of jewelry we made over from her mother's triple stranded AB clear crystal necklace. She was clearly pleased.

It wasn't really her style so Bonnie and Pearl overhauled the necklace and did a complete jewelry makeover so she could wear it. The triple strand yielded so many beads we were able to make several pieces for her with some beads left over!

Bonnie made the bracelet above. The bracelet was just lovely but the photo wasn't as it was hastily taken with a cell phone camera before the client arrived. None of us remembered to bring a camera. Fortunately Pearl did photograph her designs before the were turned over. The designs were based on what the client wanted and preferred to wear.


Third time lucky sign?

Sigh. The first time Harbourview did the Sisters Too sign, "sisters" was misspelt as "sisiters". It was redone and hurrah, the sisters is correct but the jewelry is now a hybrid between the British "jewellery" and the American "jewelry". Oh well, good job we are Canadians and can take a mishmash!
