It was fun while it lasted, my sweet rustic faceted polymer clay bead custom orders, but it's time to cut the apron strings, whatever that means.
I have deactivated all my custom listings. It has simply become too stressful to fashion things to an existing ideal/expectation. And it's my OWN ideals and expectations I'm talking about--my own notions that I impose on myself, vs. the customers. I know this intellectually. I've never had anything but positive transactions and feedback with any of the bead orders.
