Success! On Jonara Blu Maui's second corporate order!

I finally got word back that my latest corporate order was a success! The person in charge of organizing this with my company had two, back to back, corporate events so I had to wait to hear from her until she got back from the second one. I knew all must have been okay with the last batch of bracelets reaching their destination since there were no complaints...but to get the final word back that all the women loved the bracelets I designed for them and that all went smoothly is a very big relief. There is always a worry that something will get lost or broken in shipping or who knows. Especially since these were shipped from Maui to their offices on the mainland and then again out to the Bahamas. The order was so big and done over a period of time that I did it in 3 different shipments..shipping each batch out as that set of bracelets was finished.

Oh and I learned that shipping packages that large and expensive...it was cheaper to send it Registered mail AND it was watched much better in the shipping process. I can't remember exactly..but it seemed to save us about 20 bucks in shipping.

So since this was a success the company is looking to use Jonara Blu Maui again in 2008...I hope it works out!

Juicy Carnelian Bracelet

I tried out a new supplier and found these bright juicy faceted carnelian beads...they were so scrumptious I had to use a bunch of them together so they would keep their intensity. I've hand wire wrapped the little beauties together with 14k gold filled wire and added dangles of amber, light and dark carnelian, citrine and vermeil daisy spacers. The size is 6 1/2" to 7 1/4" and it's available here at Jonara Blu Maui

Happy Anniversary to us :)

June 2nd was me and my hubby's 19th anniversary..We were too busy to celebrate that weekend since my dad had his bypass surgery..which went great by the way! My sis flew out to the mainland to be with them and I helped watch the kids. So This last weekend my sis had a little dinner for us..yummy mexican food and of course chocolate deserts :-P

Then Saturday we went to the park with some friends and played baseball..I hung out with the little ones. We had a bbq after...it was good to get out and run around :)
