    I voted “Give up,” but really, I would just have a very good backup plan. It sounds like she’s avoiding your calls–she probably feels very guilty that she hasn’t gotten back to you. She’s probably busy with her work/business and is putting paying cutomers ahead of you, but she doesn’t want to make YOU a paying customer, since she offered to give the earrings to you.


    Since you said your budget is flexible, can you just buy the second headpiece too, and see how it looks with the simpler earrings? Then if your friend DOES get you the earrings, you can try those one with the simpler headpiece and decide which you like the most–and if she never does, you’ll have a backup plan you’re happy with.

    I think you’re jumping the gun. If your wedding is in September, if I were your firend I wouldn’t have thought to give them to you until August. Certainly not have them made by April (5 months before the wedding). I dunno, I just think you’re rushing her a bit.

    @Miss Leopard:  Yes agreed, OP, if your wedding is not for months I don’t see why this should be a rush job! Patience!

    Do you know if she does a que of orders? I know a few ladies who do homemade stuff and they have a que of orders, even if they are going to be making something for themselves or friends, they add it to their list of orders.  Although usually they have it on their Facebook page whose order is being worked on, etc.

    I hope she gets back to you!

    I vote that you let her know that she’s stressing you out. Maybe she thinks that she still has plenty of time and doesn’t understand why you are rushing to get them now (I completely understand why you want them now though!)

    I’d explain why you need them and offer again to pay.

    If she doesn’t respond in like 2 weeks I’d start researching other jewelers. I’m sure while hers are unique if you are willing to spend 400 on a pair you can get something else that will look equally stunning.

    Good luck! I’m sorry that she’s such a flake!
