    Customer horror story!!

    So I have an event tonight and I had this lady come up and try on a lot of my jewelry and tell me how beautiful it was (which is always nice to hear) and she started asking prices and she kept shaking her head everytime I told her a price. She tells me she has a limited budget and I tell her that's fine we can find something she loves that's in her price range (ill usually make a deal with someone if they have limited funds), well this is where it starts going down hill.. she looks at me and asks what can I buy for $2? I looked at her and said excusse me cuz I thought I heard her wrong. She looks me dead in the eye and says what can I buy for $2. I tell her everything is hand made and nothing on my table is sellable for $2. She gets really upset and grabs a dragon scale bracelet off my table (19g 3/16th with inner rings of 1/8th) and says well you can't expect to sell this for more than $20! She wasn't happy when I told her how much I expected to get from a piece like that! She starts telling me I'm way too over priced and she can't believe what she's hearing.I try to explain she's not buying something from china its handmade. This goes on for what feels like forever, (I was trying to stay nice and positive because I had other customers looking at my items)and I ended up and showing her my bowl that has $5 random jewelry (mostly bracelets) that I've had for awhile that just never sold and she ended up buying one but came back on 3 diffrent occasons to change it for a diffrentcolor, the last time she had the nerve to ask me if id make her a custom one in a diffrent color scheme. At this point I was ready to scream at her and told her she needed to leave and to stop it or I was going to get the event staff over here. I don't understand what this lady was thinking! She was in her late 40's so there's no way she could have thought what she was doing to me was justified! Had it been a child id have understood it a little. Well that's my horror story, I figured you guys would understand my pain!

    Customer horror story!!

    Haha I was deff not trying to please her. I'm pretty sure she had something wrong with her (my assumption meth lol) she just didn't seem right in the head. Which is why I was nice untill I couldn't handle her any more. The past few events I've done have been crazy people free tho which was very nice lol

    Did you not ask for a deposit? I've learned you always get 1/2 down.. that way your not out. I had something like what your going through happen and it was a lesson well learned. Hope this doesn't come off as rude just trying to help

    Customer horror story!!

    Over all it ended up being a great event for me and I made a decent profit, its just upsetting when people think something that's handmade isn't worth more then $2!

  10. I was commissioned to make a full body LED suit for a short video. The directors vison was of a guy walking down a bridge and falling off and bursting into a million stars. The suit has over 300 LEDs and runs off two 9 volt batteries. I'm relly proud of how it came out and just had to share with you all!

    Contact us email not working?

    Screen shot I hope its not super small
  12. Everytime I try to send an email using the contact us page I enter the code and it tells me its wrong. I enter it exactly as it appears and it still says its wrong. I'm trying to get help with the pdf I purchased. I purchased it on my mobile phone and I didn't want to open it untill I got home but for whatever reason it tried to open on my phone and it is now saying I can't download it now. Is there anyway to fix this or am I screwed? Thanks

    How do you work?

    I work every where and anywhere! A lot of the time I'm mailling while running the light board at work lol! I keep everything in ziplocks but I have this jewelry organizers I found at a thrift store that has all of these zipper pockets and it folds up nicely! It holds a lot and has a spot that holds multiple pairs of pliers its very nice! I keep 2 small ziplocks inside each bag that holds pre opened and pre closed rings in them. So when I finish something I keep the left overs in the smaller bags. http://dyn-images2.hsni.com/is/image/HomeShoppingNetwork/303979?$pd300$ this is kind of like my travel kit except mine has two more zipper parts off the center one that holds my pliers. At home I just work off a tv tray and keep all my ziplock bags organized by size in cases I got from walmart with the snap on lids. I have 5 of the big cases that are organized by small, med to large, scales, findings / beads, and one completely unorganized one that has random found objects in it.

    DragonScale isn't flexible?

    I think your talking about my bracelet! http://www.theringlord.org/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/5070-dragon-scale-bracelet/ When I made mine it wasn't super flexable when it was that tiny but when it gets longer it will be flexable. Id say just keep going!
