Custom Order - Coral Shoe Clips

On November 21st I received an etsy conversation...

I just found your shop and I was wondering if you would consider doing a custom piece?

My best friend is getting married in February and these would be so perfect to compliment her outfit. She LOVES color and her shoes are a bright marigold.

Please let me know if this might be possible.
Thank you!

Jane followed up her request with a link to a LOVELY Snippet & Ink Inspiration Board for color inspiration.

The result?

Today 'Jane' brighten my day with feedback:
"Thank you! Lovely custom order of coral shoe clips, matched the color perfectly to what I asked for. Very quick response and prompt delivery."

First etsy order - kinda.

My first etsy order EVER came from a fantastic photographer friend Amy of Amy Carroll Photography. Its flattering to know your friends are supporting your new venture, but I don't consider it my first REAL sale - sorry Amy!

My second sale was a Boutonniere that I created for a family member that went unused. This Boutonniere was actually the inspiration for the etsy store, so it was fun that this was my very first real sale. The client who purchased this item also placed a custom order for matching - yet - different boutonniere.
Here are the boutonnieres.

The original and custom
