CUSTOM ORDER FOR INAUGURAL BALL



After being gone for a month, I’m ready to get back to work making new and different items.

During my month away, I was asked to do a custom bracelet for a very nice lady attending one of the Inaugural Balls in Washington D.C. I felt very privileged and honored to do this because she wanted a Texas designer.

I only had a couple days to find out what she wanted, make it and ship it. Everything ran smoothly until the time of delivery. I sent it by Fedex 2 day air and waited to see if it was delivered. It wasn’t delivered on time because it was still sitting at the airport that entire day it was suppose to be delivered. After making some calls to Fedex, and by this time I was really worried, they said they would try to get it out the next day. There was limited service on Inaugural Monday and none on Tuesday. Finally it was delivered the next day and I was really relieved.

I felt a little part of me went to the Inaugural Ball. That is probably a once in a lifetime piece of jewelry.

Yvonne, this bracelet is lovely and the Texas dangle is simply PERFECT on the end. I love rondelles and squaredelles, they really dress up a piece of jewelry! Great Job! Teri
