Custom order – Larvikite pendant

General, Mineral, Wire / Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

I find these difficult to do. Not technically, people are usually asking about something I already do. But timewise. Communication can be challenging, even more so online. The whole process can be time consuming. At this point in life, I am not always sure I have the free time needed to ensure that we are in agreement, so custom orders are not something I do often.

However , when a woman from south of Norway contacted me asking if I could make a larvikite pendant like this for her, I said yes at once. She had already seen the product, knew what to expect, had time to wait for me to finish weaving, and last but not least – was going to use them almost exactly as I had. Gifts for family and friends. We set a date, I got some extra supplies imported – and could start a bit before I had said I could. It was slow at first. I had to start over on the first one (she ordered several) seeing as I was a bit out of practice. I entered a certain flow, and worked on them when I had the time, finishing them all before my own deadline. Yay!

I had sent off some photos of the work in progress. The reaction was good, and she was happy. She had ordered a few more of these, but I had no stones left in stock. I was able to buy a few more from my supplier, and made a video for her to see so she could pick one she wanted. I sent off the pendants I already I had made, and the video of the new stones I had acquired.

I never heard back from her alas. Maybe life got busy, or her plans changed. That means however that I have a few pendants to wrap closing in on christmas. If you would like these specially made for you, I can do that. Check out the video linked and let me know which one you would want wrapped. The cost is 300NOK +shipping.

I will post these eventually on Etsy. This is just an opportunity to order beforehand.
