One of the things I love best about my Etsy shop is the ability of my customers to help design jewelry for their wedding parties, for gifts or for themselves. While I sometimes have several different colors of the same necklace and earring set online, I may not have the exact combination that would best match the bridesmaids dresses or wedding theme, for example. Take a look at this necklace set, which is in a popular combination of dark purple or eggplant glass pearls paired with light purple or lilac glass pearls floating on a 2-strand necklace:
One customer wanted dark royal purple and violet pearls:
Another customer wanted just a single strand with eggplant and ivory and shorter earrings:
And here it is with lilac as the prominent color and violet accents and different earrings:
So far I’ve only made this set in purples, ivory or white, but it could be made in any combination of colors of glass pearls or other beads. I think I’ll try making another color or two to put in my Etsy shop. What colors would you use to design your perfect necklace?
Etsy has made things easier for custom order requests recently. Once you find an item you like or want to use as a reference, look for the Request Custom Order link below the picture in that Etsy listing, and let the shop owner know what you’re thinking! Please be sure to include information such as how many you’ll need, when you need it, and your location (U.S. or another country).
