Christmas presents!


Dear amazedcreation, aubkabob, darkpool, eternitywaiting, evileve, anar_anar, genesiskenshin, jamina1, jedibubbles, karmia, mental_coercion, misemifein2, shaybe, and sky_falls_down,
I feel a bond with you guys and I want to give you a Christmas present -- a pair of earrings made by myself. And if my jewelry isn't your style, well, 'tis the season for re-gifting! I don't mind if you give your pair away. Just don't give it to somebody you don't like.

So if you or someone you care about would like a pair of my earrings for Christmas, comment with the length, color(s), and style you want. Look through the ones I've made and if you want a similar style, I can probably do it... or you can just describe to me an idea you have.

The catch is, you must comment and tell me what you want before Sunday (the 12th) so I can make them and have them sent on Monday. And you have to email me your snailmail address of course -- to Belenen at livejournal.com.

If they aren't your style and you don't have a friend who would want a pair, please comment and say 'no thanks' so I'm not waiting and wondering.


P.S. aubkabob, please let me buy some niobium hooks and make you a pair just to try! If you're allergic to niobium (very unlikely), you can still give them to somebody else.
P.P.S. Those of you who I know outside of LJ, no need to send your address 'cause I'll probably see you over the holidays.
P.P.P.S. I am in love with http://www.eebeads.com

feelings: creative
sounds: Glisten: "Choose Me"

lovely!
your jewelry is so beautiful! if my ears were pierced, I would definitely want some. If you don't have too many other requests, would you want to make a pair for my step mother? feel free to be in touch. my email is kmiotutsie@juno.com. also, if you have a business card or anything and you want more customers, i'd be glad to promote you locally, if you want. i know a lot of people who'd really be in to your jewelry.

*SQUEE!* You rock, Bel! But I trust you to surprize me! (I mean, you know my colors, so you can feasibly do so...)
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
mmm-hmmm, but I don't want to surprise you this time. I want you to choose a design you like! or describe to me an outfit that you have no jewelry to match. (this isn't your whole Christmas present btw... I found something that I think you'll really squeal over!)

Oooo, I would love a pair. Red and black would be good colors. Length would be maybe an inch and a half. I know I said two inches in your poll but I was thinking that that's pretty long. I like dangly earring but not so much that that might swing around a lot and get caught in my hair/clothes. I'd kind of like something like linked dagger but whatever you make I'm sure will be awesome. Thank you so much. BTW I'll probably send that book out for you today since I have a little free time. I'm oging to send it media mail though so it could be a couple weeks.
belenen ══╣caffeinated╠══
the shorter linked dagger pair is actually 1.5 inches... shall I make you a red and black pair just like it? Do you want the red and black to be 'red link, black link,' or red and black on each link? Red or black dagger at the end? Don't forget to email me your address!

aww yay
I would adore a pair of earings. Your jewelry is gorgeous. I would treasure a pair made from you. Thanks tons. Merry Christmas.

I adore the christmastime violet pearl earings.. but if there were anyway they could be made with blue beads at the ends instead of purple...like a saphire color... that would be so great. thanks hun. God bless.

Re: aww yay
well, I'm (hopefully) going to the bead shop tomorrow, so I'll see what they have in a sapphire-like color. If I can't find anything, I'll show you a photo of what I have and you can choose from that. ;-)

don't forget to email me your address! or you can comment with it and immediately delete it and I'll get it in an email. ;-)

anar_anar ══╣╠══
ayyyy yai yai... now I wish my ears were pierced... and then I made the mistake of looking at your earrings anyway and they're so gooooorgeous... the only friend I have with pierced ears is Sheri but... yeah... you know all the stuff going on with her right now... eh. anyway, argghhh, all the earrings are gorgeous but I couldn't wear any, no one I know could... so for now I must say "no thanks" but I'm so incredibly flattered that you'd think of me :) really, really, really I am. One day when I gather enough money though I will have to buy a necklace, hehehee.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
I'm glad you like them, and sorry that you don't have pierced ears. :-(

You are so sweet! Awww! But alas, my ears are not pierced... I checked out your jewelry though and it is very lovely, I can see the Egyptian and Eastern influence - I love it. As one of the comments above said, my mom would probably love the "teardrop" earrings in green... but yeah... if you don't get too many requests that would be amazing, but otherwise, let those with pierced ears have first selection. :) Thanks friend.
belenen ══╣╠══
You are very lucky! I just happen to have two green teardrops -- I never bought them in large quantity but got them in a random assortment... anyway, yes I'll make 'em!

don't forget to email me your address! or you can comment with it and immediately delete it and I'll get it in an email.
karmia ══╣╠══
You make the most gorgeous earrings ever. Do whatever you damn feel like, and I'm sure I'll like it ^_^ I guess my only thing is that as you probably know, I'm not into really flashy, and I wear lots of jeans, so probably something that goes well with those two things. Thankies!
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
ooooh, fun. But at least tell me the length.

Thanks for the compliment! I agree, I do make the most gorgeous earrings ever! ;-)

Yea, dat's a nice ting to be doin' for your friends. Let's just hope they respond to you quickly, otherwise...silly people, always breakin' theys heads...

who's karl? That last phrase sounds familiar...
misemifein2 ══╣╠══
That made me so happy, had to grin really widely and get up and jump up and down and run through to the kithcen and back and jump some more before I calmed down. Completely true. Still smiling now. Would you be able to send earrings over here though? Just seems such a long way from America to Scotland. Would you make them and send me a picture if you couldn't send them? That would be nearly just as special. Now I get to think of colours and design and fun things like that! I'm well happy now, thankyou so much! Don't think anyone's ever said anything to make me this happy and bouncy before. I'd hug you if I could.
belenen ══╣vivacious╠══
awwww, I'm so glad it made you so happy!

Yeah actually, before I posted this I made sure to check the international shipping rates, and they aren't that terrible, so yes, I will ship to you!

It made me smile really big to read how delighted you were. I'd hug you back if I could!

Wow, I feel really special now. But really you need not go to the trouble of doing this for me. But if you feel as if you truly need to. Keep this in mind, I wear blue jeans every single day, my favorite colours are dark blue and dark purple, and nothing longer than 1.5 inches in length. Thankies for thinking of me though.

That's really sweet of you...and here I just about gave up on the generous nature of my fellow humans....

I *love* the Christmastime ones...red maybe? I love red. *smile*

Thank you so much. It really is nice to know that someone actually gives a damn about trying to make other people happy. Such people really are too few in the world.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
What length?
Let's see... I can make those with black, light green, or clear cord -- which do you want? The red rounds I have are marbly-mottled, crimson and deeper red -- sound good?

You're welcome so much. ;-)

mental_coercion ══╣╠══
Oh wow, really? Sorry I only just checked my friends page, I've been a bit preoccupied, so I'm not ignoring your offer. I appreciate you considering giving me a pair of your earrings, they're lovely - I especially love the long double citrus pair. If it's not too much trouble =)
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
Just the long ones, or the short pair for second holes too? I'll have to see if I can find some more lime beads... I'll letcha know.
