I had several people ask if I would be willing to accept donations and the answer is a resounding YES!! As much as I would like to be completely independent and do this all on my own I just don't have the resources for that.
So......if you are interested in making a donation to help with the supply costs.....I have added a PayPal button over there ------------>
I appreciate anyone who is able to help out and thank you in advance for your help!
As of right now, I have to admit that the making of pendants is at a complete standstill. I have talked with the lady at the shop where I purchase the bezels to make the pendants and she is more than happy to work with me and place orders for what I need. The problem is that at the moment I cannot afford to purchase a large order of the bezels and she needs me to place a large order (like 100 bezels) before she will order them for me. I actually would like to order more than just 1 or 2 bezels at a time or purchase 1 or 2 bezels at a time so that I have a good stock of them to be able to make them for everyone. However, I just can't afford that at the moment. So, for the time being, I will be going whenever I have a little extra cash to buy whatever shape I need in the meantime. And that's assuming that she restocks any time soon *which she has not done since before Christmas*.
I wish that I had better news. We are expecting a *bonus* soon (like in the next 3 months) and so I will be able to get them then. Until then, thanks for being so very patient about things.
I was FINALLY able to order some pendants! After stalking my store every week for the past 5 weeks, I finally got a hold of the person in charge of ordering them and just asked if I could order them outright. She will be placing an order this next week and I should finally have the pendants in my hands the week after that.
So.....FINALLY! I'll be able to make everyone's pendants! I'm so excited!
