In November I had posted about a new piece I had finished called "Cross my Heart". It was bought, by a very good blog friend, promptly shipped off and never made it. I was totally surprised. I could not believe it was lost in the mail. How could it be? It had never happened to me, and I've mailed alot of packages! I had purchased delivery confirmation and insurance, so I was covered, thankfully. After a couple of weeks, it became evident that it was stuck forever in limbo and was not going to be delivered. But, we remained optimistic. We waited another month, and still no package! I thought any day it would get to her. I just knew it would! I contacted her, and wanted to refund her money. She said, no. I could make another piece for her. The reason I didn't just make another one right away, was because I had bought only one of these beautiful crosses at the jewelry show. I would have bought more, but that was the only one I really liked! Now, I would have to wait till the next show, which would be January 16th. I looked online, other jewelry shops~none as nice as this one. So when January 16th came around I, of course, went to the International Gem & Jewelry Show. The very first piece I bought was another turquoise cross. Anyone who designs jewelry knows that no two pieces are ever alike. And, if you like a piece, you better buy it then, because you won't get a second chance. This cross is slightly smaller, so a refund is still in order. And, I bought more than one cross this time. I told her I would make it up to her in some way. I thought these might help. Thanks, Daryl for being so understanding. I hope you like what comes in the mail~this time I am using FedEx.
