Quality is really important to me. Every piece I make is carefully handcrafted with intention. I use high quality supplies and I test everything on myself first. I don't want to make a subpar piece, I don't want to sell you something that falls apart.
I made myself a wrap bracelet and I wasn't sure how the beading thread would stand up. I am hard on jewelry and I have high expectations. I have worn this bracelet every day all day, I sleep with it on, and I clean with it on. The only time I take it off is to shower, bathe my toddler or wash dishes.
Overall it's done very well, however I'm disappointed in how the thread is fraying, especially on the prehnite. I am also not impressed with the metal button as the silver has rubbed off revealing that it is actually copper. I love copper, it's a beneficial metal, but when you're expecting silver plated stainless steel it's disappointing.
So "back to the drawing board" as they say! I have new buttons and a different kind of thread on their way so I can try again.
I think it's important to be open and honest about my products, I pride myself on the work I do and the pieces I create. I want you to love them as much as I do.
