Well, Thank You!!!

Here is the text copied from my new Metal Shop Announcement, I trust that it is helpful and concise!



A NEW SYSTEM FOR CUSTOM ORDERS!!!!
Please do take the time to read!

As most of my work revolves around the actual rare and exceptional stone set in a piece, I will be trying out a new system for custom orders, since I am too busy in most cases to take them at will. 

Once a week every Wednesday I will be showing two incredible and exemplary stones on my blog                                                 
( http://www.sunnyrisingleather.blogspot.com ) and interested parties can convo me right here on SunnyRisingMetal with their interest.

First come, first to get, of course.

I believe there is a perfect, soul stirring stone out there for everyone and I believe part of my own journey is helping each person find their perfect match.
Once you've secured your stone we will discuss design and price points for various pieces: ring, necklace, etc.

I really appreciate you taking the time to read this and familiarize yourself with this new process: I am looking forward to making something special for all of you!!


I was reading over your amazing and helpful comments and wanted to let you know something fundamental: A ring band cannot be attached after a stone is set; it is a sad truth as it would make everything easier!

The heat being used is in the thousands of degrees for soldering and that would crack a stone into ten million pieces. In the meantime, I will try out this newfangled system and see if it creates the sense of purpose and excitement in my amazing patrons as it does in my heart!

Stay tuned next Wednesday for two amazing stones: I will keep at least one per week very affordable, but I also want to make sure some of the real barn burners are getting their due, too!

Chiming in a bit late here--just to say this sounds like a great idea, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes!

I had often wondered about the possibility of attaching a band after the fact. Hmmm. Makes sense now. I say, great; try out the idea and see how it is received. But most importantly, is it working for YOU. Someone mentioned in the last post about your own creativity, and I concur. I only want a custom piece because I already know what magic you are capable of. And make sure to think about how much work this adds, and charge appropriately.
