Thanks to everyone who purchased jewelry from my Cyber Monday sale yesterday! Apologies to those people who wanted a chicken necklace and didn’t get one. There was such a rush on them that my website couldn’t keep up, so the site told some people that they had one when they really didn’t. I’m sorry that my lying liar of a website lied to you about that.

A lot of other styles sold out before everyone finished his/her shopping, so I’ve left a few pieces in the sale section in case some of you want to take a shot at a different design. The majority of these are one-of-a-kind, so if you see something you like, get it right away, because there won’t be any more!


UPDATED TO ADD: Because so many people are still asking for chickens, I’m exploring the possibility of making a batch overseas so I can match — or get close to — yesterday’s sale price.  Because I would have to order in quantity, my ability to do this would be dependent on securing enough pre-orders through Kickstarter, as I did here. Stay tuned.

    So…I kept thinking I should have gotten the Edburga ring yesterday. I’m having non-buyers remorse. Now you’ve made it impossible for me NOT to get it! Thanks a lot, Wendy! Guess it’s $25 gift cards for the nephews this holiday season cause I’ve gots to have that ring! ;-)

      My attitude is kids have so much these days … will they REALLY appreciate a big gift? Probably not. Will WE appreciate a big self-gift? Most definitely :-D

    I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, it’s good customer service.

    On the other hand it sounds like more hassle than its worth to create new stock to match sale prices , especially if they’re marked down 85(!) never mind 20 or something. And it doesn’t sound too great from a branding perspective either as customers assume this is the ” real” price of your pieces.

    Or maybe it’s just one design so it couldn’t hurt.

      I absolutely know what you’re saying! But I figure very few people understand pricing anyway! LOL. I frequently have to explain the issue of ordering large quantities from Asian manufacturers, so I don’t mind doing it for a one-off project, especially as a last hurrah for this kind of design at this pricepoint. Going forward, I don’t anticipate creating anything retailing under $1,000 for my signature line; that will be confined to the diffusion line. The signature line will all be ultra-luxe and there won’t be anything comparable to the chicken. Seeing as I haven’t gotten that special collaboration with H&M or Target yet, this would be my own personal, mini version of it … if it does happen. It couldn’t go forward without being nearly 100% sold-out as a pre-order, because I wouldn’t want to have any inventory like this sitting around. It just wouldn’t fit in anymore.
