I fabricate mixed metal jewelry. From time to time I will cut stones
to fit a design for a customer. Recently one of my favorite
customers sent a friend to me for a job. This is what the friend told
me she wanted:
Her husband’s 60th birthday is coming up. He doesn’t wear jewelry.
He does collect agates. Can I make a sterling tray, or candle
holders, or tray with a candle holder, or perhaps with an incense
burner, but so the ash collects on the tray, or napkin rings (her
last choice as they already have napkin rings), and incorporate
something in 6’s for his 60th, and recut some of his tumble agates.
And her budget is max $250. She is currently awaiting my reply. And
design ideas. I have received 3 separate emails with her thoughts.
She is excited and enthusiastic.
Any thoughts on this request? I’m trying to see if I my gut reaction
to this was outta line.
