I was asked to make a black and white version of this necklace: https://www.etsy.com/listing/152388975/aussiejules-handmade-red-glass-bead?
The request was for it to be on black leather, however I didn’t have any black leather to work with, so I suggested we try it on the light brown leather. I made 2 different versions of the necklace.
The customer lives in another city, so the only way to show her my work was by photographing it. When she saw what I had made she knew that she wanted it on black leather!
Now, some people might be disappointed with that, but I was really thrilled.
First, it means I have tried doing something new (yay, new jewellery). It hasn’t quite worked out, but it has pushed me into getting some new materials to work with (black leather). I have 2 necklaces ready to go to a shop now. And I have a happy customer. It was a great experience.
