This customer had seen a turtle charm bracelet I had on my social media pages and loved it. As it had already been sold I showed her a couple of other turtle charms and beads I had that she may like and she fell in love with the Paua shell and Sterling Silver style in this photo.
Years ago she had a favourite necklace in little blue and white beads that she wanted to replicate and add the turtle charm to.
Discuss colours, style and other design ideas
During our conversations the customer advises me of the colours she liked, what sort of beads or look she was after, the length of the piece and other things relevant to the design.
With this information I sent photos of beads and materials I have in stock that might fit her descriptions and she could narrow her choice down.
I had several beads that fitted her description and added a few more that picked out the colours in the Paua shell and she developed the mixes she was most interested in.
It's time to get into the pattern design phase.
This is where I make up several “dummy” strands in different patterns using the bead mixes the customer has short listed.
Once I have a few of these samples made I send them via her preferred communication method for her to let me know the elements she likes or dislikes.
A few little tweaks and another set of bespoke “dummies” are sent across the internet.
Sometimes I may send a design out of left field just as an idea to develop on.
The Finished Product
Ready to send anywhere in Australia
This pretty set comprises of matching necklace and bracelet, both with extension chains allowing the sizing to be adjusted as needs be or for them to be joined together to form a longer necklace.
The Paua turtle charms can be added or removed easily and as a bonus can also be threaded on large sleepers for earrings.
Feel free to contact me for more information and to discuss your design ideas.
