I am thrilled to bring you a new feature on the blog, Client Convos. Ask anyone what my favorite part of my job is and they will tell you it is the custom designs I create for my loyal clients. The process of designing a unique piece with a specific individual in mind is so therapeutic and strengthens my skills as an artist. I have shared a few of those projects on the blog before, but I wanted to create a way to share a bit more. I messaged a few of my previous customers and asked if they would share a bit of their experience with custom orders, give you an idea of what you can expect when reaching out to me with a design in mind. The first story I want to share with you is from Shantel, a new client of mine who I had the pleasure of designing for in April. Below is her email to me, and honestly it made me tear up a little to read such kind words. I hope you enjoy, and if you would like to submit for future client convo features, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What really inspired me was the art of the pieces, the geometric shapes, the unique pieces, unique crystals, and even the photography. I could tell a lot of work went into the whole aspect of DDJ. I have NEVER seen anything like it.
I finally worked up the nerve to message Emma/DDJ directly to ask about a piece I saw. Unfortunately it was sold out. This actually was the BEST thing that could have happened. This was a Segway to getting my own customized piece. Emma was so quick to respond with photos of the type of crystal I was interested in. She is so kind and open to your ideas. I was able to choose my favorite one, and she gave me free range into the designing aspect. This was amazing, I trusted her with her vision and wanted what she saw this piece could become.
As of now, I have one piece of DDJ but intend on doing another custom piece. I can wear my current piece with almost everything, between the Quartz and the black leather necklace; it fits with most items I wear. I like to wear my piece with all black wardrobes so it’s the centerpiece; I get so many compliments- or all light colors.
I have and will continue to recommend DDJ to friends, the quality of work and the stunning pieces…how could I not?
