The complications of my first custom order

I never thought that made a custom order could be like that complicate…

My customer sow a piece in Facebook, thinking it was mine, she ask me to make a ring, I’d explain to her the piece wasn’t mine and was a pendant, she didn’t listen to me, she want that ring…

I decided to make a ring for her, of course my own design, when I was starting, she contact me again, now she want a tortoise as well, I have to make two rings.

The tortoise was more complicate that I thought, a lot of pieces very small, and if was not enough, she send me a photo of a tortoise ring and said, this is what I want… I had to explain again that I won’t make other people pieces, was like speak with a wall. She is a customer, but…

I’d take a deep breath and continuing making the rings, “with my own designs”, when I finish the first one…

She said to me, she thought was going to be round. like a band. Let’s try again…Finish the second ring and show it to her.Image

“But you didn’t understand to me, she said, I mind roundly…”  And other big deep breath and have another go. Yes, I made a third ring and I show it to her…

It is not the language, we speak Spanish, the bough of us, no, she wants that design she sow in the first moment…

At this stage, I don’t mind if she like the rings or not, I love the three of them, But I have learned an important lesson, I’m a jewellery maker and designer and if someone want my job, they will pay for it, a week of work for to make happy a customer have to be recompensed…
