Alchemy


Etsy has an area they call Alchemy. It’s a great place to go and post something you are wanting but can’t find on Etsy. I browse it once in a while for someone wanting a bracelet that I think I can do. The problem is my bracelets abstractly represent what people are asking for. I can’t make a bracelet with a zebra on it but I can do black and white stripes. I almost had given up on alchemy until the other day.

Someone was looking for a bracelet with marigolds. I gave it a shot and my idea was accepted. The person wanting the bracelet even had some beads in mind. I’m really excited about the outcome and am waiting for final approval on the beads. The bracelet will end up representing marigolds, brown eyed susans, and blue grass flowers. I’ve posted the pictures here of the options I came up with (one obviously without the blue). I love all three and might make a similar bracelet for my brick and mortar shop feature in July.

I love doing custom orders as it forces me out of my safety box. I get in the habit of making bracelets I would wear and custom orders push me to do colors and designs I wouldn’t have done without the request. They are educational and lucrative at the same time. I like that.

I have made some other jewelry this weekend. All necklaces for the shop in July. I don’t want to take any of my items I have listed on Etsy for obvious reasons. I need to get some bracelets and earrings made, but I’m well on my way to getting enough inventory to make me happy.

Stay tuned for later today when I feature and Etsy shop that continues to impress me and bring a smile to my face.

  1. These bead combos are delicious. Are you doing a knitted bracelet? I can’t wait to see the results!

    Yay on the alchemy deal!!! I’ve also browed through there but haven’t yet found anything that matches the things I make. I love, love, LOVE those colors and shapes for the bracelet. You ARE going to post a picture of the final result, right??
