I Had It Made For You…

I want to share with you one of the best things about making your own jewellery (other than always having jewellery that goes with your outfit, obviously)…

Commissions.

I started out being taught the basics, then carried on teaching myself; I don’t have any qualifications in jewellery making, just an imagination and a drive to be creative. (for a loonger version of this story, click here.) Yet people trust me to make really special pieces of jewellery, for their friends, family or loved ones. I’ve been having more requests for commissions lately, and I love it!

If you’ve ever received a gift, given to you with the words

“I had it made for you”

then you know that there’s real power in those 6 little words:

I … Me, yes, me. I did it, no-one else. Whenever you look at it, you’ll think of me.

Had  … I had it made. It didn’t just happen, by accident. I made it happen.

It  … This pretty little thing. This is what I picked for you. Nothing else. This is what I thought you would like, more than anything else.

Made  … Someone made this for you. In their bedroom or studio or living room. Their hands put this together.

For  … This piece of jewellery had a purpose. It wasn’t just made and then left to be chosen at random. It was made to be given to you, no-one else.

You  … Everything about this piece of jewellery is for you. I decided on the colour, or picked the charms, it fits you exactly, and that’s not a coincidence.

And people trust me to do this for them! It kinda baffles me every time. Lately, I made a set of 3 bracelets for a lovely girl called Abbie, for her to give to her friend. She knew what colours her friend would like, she knew her style and she knew that she would wear the bracelets all stacked together. I loved putting her ideas into reality and hearing that her friend was wearing them every day because she loved them so much.

Ultimately,

“I had it made for you”

=

“I love you and want you to be happy so much that nothing else other than the perfect gift will do.”

And witnessing that kind of love is really something.

Love,
