Forget Cyber Monday, it's Instant Gratification Monday!
It's Monday! There's a whole bunch of frozen white stuff falling from the sky and school is closed! It's $_WINTERHOLIDAY shopping season! It's... Instant Gratification Monday!
(OH HAI I have been prescribed a Ritalin and now I like exclamation points even more than I did before!!)
I've turned off comments on the blog because spambots were having a field day, so to place a request, you can email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tweet at me, or leave a comment on the Facebook post mirroring this one, or send me a message on Facebook. (I don't recommend telepathy, though.) I'll do my best to keep track of everything; if I don't reply in some manner by this afternoon to tell you that I have your request on the list, feel free to nudge me, because let's face it, it's a big internet out there.
This is a choose-your-own-budget adventure; there is a $10 minimum and a $50 maximum and I'm happy to work with you to create something lovely at any point in that range. I'm good at finding ways to stay within any budget, so feel free to ask me for suggestions if you’ve seen a piece that you really love that’s totally out of your price range; I may be able to make you something similar with a less expensive stone or by simplifying a complex design.
Once your piece is done, I will give you a link to a reserved-for-you listing in the store. If you don’t like what I’ve made, you’re under no obligation to buy it - you just have first dibs on it. I do ask that you either pay for your item or let me know that it's not to your liking by Wednesday morning, please.
Caveats and restrictions: I'm unusually low on all wire except silver (but you can ask, I might have enough to make something) and I'm limited to the materials I have in stock (but since I stock over a thousand varieties of shiny objects, that's not much of a restriction) and I reserve the right to limit this to a maximum of 10 requests and 1 item per person so I can get through all the requests by the end of the day. If I don’t have the necessary materials on hand, I’ll let you know and we can discuss having me order the materials for you; that may involve a deposit and a significantly longer turnaround time.
Requests are open as of now and will remain open until approximately 6pm (eastern time) on or when we get to too many requests for me to finish today, whichever comes first. Tell me what you'd like and how much you want to spend and I will do my best to make it for you! I will be working through requests in a roughly first-come, first-served basis, starting around noon when I get back from giving a friend a ride home from dialysis.
