Wearable Art Changes






I had a bit of a 'disaster' with my latest Scrabble Tile pendants.
The bails that attached the tile to the chain I received were 'crap'....
I didn't realize this at first...
although one of my daughters said she thought
they were lighter weight than the ones we had been 
using (from the same seller)...

Well...long story short...they started arriving in pieces...
Oh my gosh...
can you imagine my horror and panic!!!

I went directly online and most of the suppliers I normally use
were on Holiday Vacation.

I had to run around town trying to find something comparable...
NOTHING!

So I had to 'make do' with what I could find...
something that doesn't set well with me.

I've since switched to Aanraku bails...
they are way more expensive...but I've used them in the past
and have had no problems with them.

But...since they are as pricey as they are...
I've decided to make all of my Scrabble Tile pendants...
'made to order'...
This was I'm not 'wasting' any of the pricey bails
on pendants that just sit in my finished pendant box.

Making to order might add a few days to my shipping times...but I
still think I can ship in the 5 business day goal I've set.

Wow, I'm glad you guys caught it. Imagine what it could have been like.

I'm glad you were able to find a solution.

I'm so sorry that happened to you, it's terrible when your supplies let you down. Sounds like you've come up with a good solution.

Glad I got mine before there was a problem.

I wear it most every day lately.

Good luck with getting some that work at a good price in the future.

Hugs, Euphoria

Youre doing the right thing. I wouldn't mind waiting longer for a product that I knew was higher in quality.
