I recently received a custom order for some beads. A woman looking at my quality creations asked if I have ever or would be interested in trying to do some beads, as she was looking for some specific beads for lanyards she would be giving as awards. I told her I haven't, but would be more than happy to try out something new and add to my skills. After roughly figuring out the size with a quick sketch, I gave her my business information and asked her a few questions to get the correct size and amount she wanted.
After getting the measurements from her, I tried a few out and sent her some pictures of them and the price I was thinking. She said they looked beautiful but was wondering if I could make them a little bigger and do three pairs of curly woods and three pairs of normal. After finding some curly and burled wood pieces from my unique stock, cutting them to size, turning them to be perfect pairs and finishing with fine sand paper, I took pictures and sent them off for her approval. Once she saw them in person she was very excited to have them and was glad I was able to do them. Although it was a new challenge, I am thankful to have developed new skills and have another happy customer thanks to the gifts God has given me.
