Custom Customer

The worst thing about custom making something is that requests often take you out of your comfort zone.

This is a beautiful piece. Sometimes it's nice when we get nudged in a direction we wouldn't have gone in otherwise ;)

This is beautiful Jackie! Sometimes it´s good for us to leave our comfort zone, even if we first didn´t like it ;-)

Sue said...

I like this too :-)

Comfort zones are way over rated, no?

It is good to feel uncomfotable sometimes - especially when it results in something beautiful like this.

Emma said...

Very nice Jackie and like the others I agree it is good for you to work out of your comfort zone now and again. We need the little challenges to keep us on our toes!

Lovely colour combination and such a great texture.

The cuff is even more beautiful than a tin of Quality Street opened on Christmas Day. (No I have not been drinking)!

Totally with you on this one.
I always get mixed emotions about doing commission pieces because I'm never entirely sure what the person is seeing in their head.
I've only ever had 2 people say they didn't like the finished articles, but I always worry!

Ooh, I just love the colours in these cuffs - they're gorgeous! Unfortunately, I don't have "the arms" for such adornments!
