The Tale of the Delighted Customer

Fortunately, I have more than one story of a delighted customer.  Even better, I have customers that have become treasured friends!  Sally, Ronnie, Kat - you are treasured beyond measure.

At a recent spring show, a customer walked up to the booth and squealed.  Squealed!  Dressed in a bright purple t-shirt and lime green  glasses, she was overjoyed at seeing this necklace:

Prince Charming.  The new love of her life.
She didn't even ask the price before she claimed  him.  Just put that purple dichroic frog and lime green bead embroidery around her neck and handed me the credit card.  Easiest sale ever.  And, even better, one of the most genuine "love at first sight" responses to my jewelry I've ever had.  This young woman had no fear about claiming what was hers, about accepting something that made her feel better and stronger about herself.
Beads.  They're magic.


  1. Beads ARE magic, but you're the magical bead weaver behind every piece you do.......I know from personal experience how creative, talented, loving and generous you are! I know how special it is to walk into your booth for the first time, or the twentyfirst.......your neckware fairly Leaps onto the rightful owner's neck .....

    I have to agree with you though-Beads and jewelry in general are so magical!

  3. I've had a few of those and they make me cry! And thanks so much for reading my blog today -- your comments meant a lot.

  4. I can see why she squealed -- that necklace is awesome!

    Beads really are magic, aren't they? So is jewelry making. Taking all those little parts and making them into a big, cohesive sculptural piece. :)

  5. I would have squealed too, I love lime green and the frog takes it over the top!

  6. Wow, that's so wonderful that the necklace found it's owner! You truly work magic with the beads.
