The ouch samples....have arrived!!
(And they are exactly what I wanted)
I ordered samples in three configurations:
All black stones
All Red stones
And Black and Red stones
Here they are, shown with a penny, for scale. They measure 26mm,
or approximately 15/16th of an inch across
Here's just a sortof better "product" shot.
Even though the cost sortof magically increased by almost $.10 each when I placed the order (they explained that they were heavier than they expected, so the "free shipping" would cost me more....hmmm) I'm still going to be able to sell them for just $1.50 each!
I mean at that price, you really maybe CAN get enough of them to seriously bling up a gown properly.
I can't wait to see them in person.
Can't wait for the two other ladies to get theirs and see what they think too.
I ordered them in bright gold (as shown above) and some of them also in antique gold, which I tend to prefer but have not yet seen their version. I asked for some of the stones to be a darker red, which they said they could do, but again - sight unseen. We'll see - but my hopes are high.
With all that excitement - the arrival of 120 of these became obscured a bit:
These, I could sell for $.75 each - but they don't quite pack the same punch that the other ones do. Still - they are a great option to have and they look pretty right.
So - color question:
What's up with the red-and-black-only thing, anyway?
Have any of you seen these in portraits in any other colors besides red, black, and gold? (and pearls)
There are period rings and combs and other jewelry items with other color stones in them, but for some reason, I can't seem to find billiments or bodice jewely-oochie-type pieces that are anything but red or black.
If you find any -send them my way. cause I COULD get them in lotsa pretty colors in the future!
