Strangers in the Night
About six weeks ago I received a payment through PayPal for three child's necklaces. I had posted some children's necklaces on my RV Vagabonds/Crystal Cachet web site about a year ago as an attempt to generate interest in my jewelry that I made as a hobby, but got no response so I thought I had removed the web page from my site.
Lo and behold, here is this order for necklaces that I didn't have made up and no longer had the envelopes for shipping, etc. I returned the payment with a note that the website should have been removed and that I no longer made jewelry as a business.
The young lady replied that it was a shame, as the necklaces she ordered were meant for the flower girls for a friend's wedding and they would have been perfect for the occasion.
WELL! Talk about hitting the guilt button! I emailed the young lady and told her for flower girls I would make the necklaces and so I did. Today I received another email from the young woman, but this email included a picture of the bride and groom with the two flower girls wearing my necklaces. How sweet was that? And that was the reason I originally wanted to sell my jewelry for young girls; because all little girls enjoy a little bit of bling.
It made my day. Today I make jewelry only for my own pleasure or as gifts for friends. But it's nice to know that it made someone else's day too.
