I had a great experience in December! I brought my teapot and teacup earrings into the Four Seasons in Sierra Madre, CA. I was there as a guest for a Tea Chamber mixer. The owner, Rosa, saw my earrings. She said she had some teapot earrings, but mine were more beautiful. She ended up purchasing all the earrings I had for resale! She even mentioned me making some bracelets or necklaces in the future. It sure made me feel good to have her appreciate my work!
