OTTBS - September Challenge
The Subject matter was Whatever the Weather.
I had made this bracelet and sold it.
I had a few beads that were left over
that needed to be made
Perfect timing for the challenge.
Want to see the what the other
designers came up with?
Lima Beads Beads Rocks!
So many times we complain when we
receive bad customer service and rightly so.
I want to share with you a company that gets it right!
I recently wrote them this complaint:
271043... My recent order..two of the
Tangerine Recycled Glass Small
have cracks..from the hole to the edge of the bead.
I know it is not a lot of money..but they are un-usable.
What are the chances you could send replacements?
I had planned to use them for earrings.
Thanks Terri Gauthier
This is their quick response:
Oh no! We are so sorry about this!
Unfortunately they are now out of stock
so I am unable to send replacements.
I've refunded your credit card for the cost of them.
PLease, no matter the cost,
always let us know when you receive a broken
or unusable item.
We want to make sure that you are able to enjoy
and use the items you've paid for.
Please let us know if you have any more
questions or concerns.

ABS September Challenge Part II
I randomly won a $20 gift certificate from
You can find her beads for sale on
and her Etsy shop.
Life is a little crazy for Heather right now
...she is in the process of moving.
So there was a bit of a delay getting the beads out to me.
So she generously sent extras.
She didn't have to but I'm so glad she did.
I had selected the love bravely bead
especially because of the neutral color.
Sure that I would be able to use it in an
upcoming ABS Challenge.
Here is the inspiration piece again
for this month
and this is what I created
The Gaea beads represent the reflection
of the clouds in the pond.
the Czech glass rondells ...the water.
The ceramic red orange the curtains.
The silk green ribbon the tree.
all of these surrounding Heather's lovely
THANK YOU SO MUCH
