Custom order: handmade personalised name bracelet
Here’s a custom order I made last month at very short notice! I actually stayed up until 12.30am making it on the Saturday night after being up from 7am and at the Salcombe pop up shop all day too - but it was worth it!! :D
My customer wanted a special gift for a very special friend, and loved the idea of something customised especially for her. She wanted a personalised bracelet and loved the colours in the khaki XO Acapulco cuff because she said they would go with almost anything, from t-shirts to a dress. And to match the bracelet she asked for a pair of personalised earrings, with the initial A.
So I got busy!
First I had to order the super cute 24 carat gold plated initial charms. I am definitely going to order some teeny S for myself soon too!
Then I had to do the maths! Because the XO Acapulco cuff is so geometric I needed to work out the patterns exactly to the bead. And then design the font, fit the name in, decide the colours (this was quite fiddly too!)…you get the picture!
Then the beading began! I used rounded seed beads for the name ANOUD so that is slightly raised and stands out from the bracelet. The gold beads are electroplated 24 carat gold - ooh la la.
Fitted with the same khaki coloured teeny seed beads, the ‘A’ earrings will look wonderful over summer with a golden glow.
I hope Anoud was thrilled with her gift and the lovely sentiment behind it for her.
Do you think I should offer more custom name bracelets like this?
