Game On

I'm happy to tell you that an order from ANTHROPOLOGIE is finally official. There was a bit of back and forth and a bit of "price point" and a bit of "ball park" and 37 emails, 3 phone calls and a vendor manual but its finally settled.

The samples

The size of the order initially suggested by the buyer (which is beyond my capacity at this point) has been whittled down to a very manageable quantity of seven different pieces with the ship date extended by a week. The flip side of that is that the pieces will only be available online. However the the flip side of THAT is that the samples may be included in a photo shoot which would be pretty cool, I must admit.

Its been a bit like jumping into the deep end really but I feel pretty good about it and I've certainly already learned a lot.  And now…its production time.

(The Etsy shop is relatively full and will stay open. I've even got some new pieces to add. Check back on Wednesday if you're interested.)

  2. So so excited for you darling generous Genevieve! What an honour for Anthropologie to have your beautiful art! Thrilled to see the buoy earring in the selection. Happy making! You will need a holiday in Nepal some time to recover! Hugs, Wendy

    1. I will need a holiday for sure but I'm thinking a long weekend on the Atlantic seashore might have to do…for now!
      I got the email that the ladies got the thermometer - hurrah!

    1. Thank you Monique! Yes, I'm much more content carving beads and big batches of ear wires than reading manuals. Happy to be at that point!
