So now to finish my design work for the regular customers that shop for the holidays. I know what they like, what their price range is - and I'm even getting to be pretty good at judging what color they may be looking for. I'll have FIVE pieces and/or sets for my vet tech customer to look at in the next few weeks. She and the girls in the vets office buy for our vet every year - and she loves and wears every piece. We always laugh about how I missed 'a piece' by a day or two, and how she needs to be better prepared and find out when we're coming so she can prove she really does wear them. I know she does - I just never get to see her in them!
And I just realized earlier that although I posted a finished photo of my Michigan tribute piece on Facebook (on the Pure Michigan fan page) I don't think I ever posted it here. So here it is:
"A Tribute to Michigan: Sunsets, Shorelines & Copper Mines"
I'm anxious to work with the petoskey stone slabs a bit more - and try to have a nice selection of pendants, pins and maybe a bracelet by show season. I was even lucky enough to find a MITTEN shaped piece on my last trip to Coyote. PERFECT!
Hope you have a fun filled weekend. Can you believe it's DECEMBER? The 12th month of the year 2012? And I'm not buyin into the whole 'end of the world' Mayan calendar stuff - it's simply a misinterpretation of how they (or even IF THEY) kept track of days/weeks/hours and time in general. Looking forward to 2013 - and beyond....
