[Source] Name necklace


#1

Hello,

I have a customer who wants a “Sex in the City - Carrie” necklace,
but in her name instead of “Carrie”.

Do you know where I can find a wholesale source for this necklace?
She is looking for 14K White Gold or Sterling Silver, depending on
price.

You can email me off the list if you prefer.

Thank you,
Jaynemarie Crawford

In a view of current discussion of custom orders, this is a type of
a client that should be kicked out of the shop, because it is nothing
but trouble.

This is like the old joke goes - How does waiter knows that he
should not count on the tip? It is when couple ask if soft drink
refills are on the house and orders one drink and 2 straws.

Whoa, I have not read that custom thread, I should go read it, since
I do almost all custom pieces, but I have a totally different
attitude, I would do that in a heartbeat and try to convince her to
do it in gold, since this is a piece she will have for a lifetime,
but I would also have no problem making it in silver. Now I better
go read the discussion on custom orders, yikes a paying customer,
would you all kick them out of your shop in my direction please!

I only do custom orders. I have learnt very early that not everybody
walking through your door should be taken. There are a lot of nuances
in this business, way to many to go into details here, but they all
can be boiled down to a simple idea. Wether an order will be smooth
one, or it will be constant changes eventually ending up in total
cancellation of the order. There are certain tell-tale signs, and
when client expresses preferences based on the price, that is the end
of conversation as far as I am concern. There is a difference between
paying client and the client pretending to be a paying one. Separating
between the two is the key to custom order business.

I do lots of name necklaces. I would never kick a person out because
they wanted to know the difference in price between white gold and
silver…:-)…! This is actually a fairly common question. I find
that whether they take the gold or silver in the end is usually about
50/50…
