Sandal Clips Custom Order Done
It was a great opportunity to work with a lady who asked me through my Etsy shop to do a special order for her. She had some white sandals (t-straps with a toe strap as well) that she wanted me to hand bead clip pieces for. I'm assuming these are for a wedding, but I'm not sure--a special occasion at least. She was just super to work with in every way. How nice it was to work with someone not only very, very pleasant but also quite clear in what she wanted.
I was able to buy some sweet little vintage, faceted, tangerine-colored nailhead beads and some pretty, light orange freshwater pearls (oh, and the actual clips) from fellow Etsy sellers. I love to support other Etsy shops when the chance arises. I already had the vintage rhinestone beads from an estate sale as well as the rhinestone and leaf vintage jewelry bits. These beads and jewelry pieces were sewn onto silvery strips--triple and quadruple stitched for security. One of the hard parts for me was not to over-embellish--you know how I like to embellish sort of "over the top".
I then finished the underneath parts with the small clips and a piece of felt for comfort should the pieces overlap the sandals at all. These certainly do sparkle and are trendy. It was a fun challenge, and I'm thankful to my customer for the chance to work with her on this.
The Bible says one must 1) admit they are a sinner (Romans 3:23); 2) realize there is a payment for sin (Romans 6:23); 3) believe that the payment was made by Jesus with His death on the cross, burial, and resurrection (Romans 5:8); 4) be willing to repent of your sins and turn to God (Acts 17:30); and 5) in prayer, humbly ask the Lord Jesus Christ to by your Lord and Saviour (Romans 10: 9, 13). It is that simple!
