One Piece of Art Jewelry on the Theme of Your Choice

Item Name and Description:

The winning bidder will confer with me via email and we will agree on a theme for the pieces I will make from which the winner will choose one. I’ll make (at least) three pieces for them to choose from, and they get their pick of one of them. The others will go into my Etsy shop for regular sale. (The winner gets first chance to buy any of the unchosen pieces, if they like; if they pass, into the Etsy shop they go.)

“Theme” can mean anything from “Make something about mermaids, please!” to “I really like orange and magenta together; can you do something with that?” to “I need a pendant with a pen nib in it!” (Note: Theme doesn’t mean describing a very specific design with measurements and itemized materials and diagrams, because I’m not very good at that kind of custom work and we would probably both be sad. Theme as suggestion, though, I can deal with just fine. References available on request.)

The type of piece will be chosen by the winner from a list determined by the amount of the winning bid.

If the winning bid is under $20, the pieces can be earrings.

If the winning bid is under $40, the pieces can be earrings or pendants.

If the winning bid is under $80, the pieces can be earrings or pendants or hair ornaments or shawl pins.

If the winning bid is under $150, the pieces can be either earrings or pendants or hair ornaments or shawl pins or short necklaces.

If the winning bid is under $200, the pieces can be earrings or pendants or hair ornaments or necklaces (long or short).

If the winning bid is over $200, the pieces can be earrings or pendants or hair ornaments or shawl pins or necklaces (long or short) or necklace-crowns.

I make at least three. Winner picks one. Winner pays shipping costs.

 

 

Starting Bid: 10

Shipping: Anywhere the winner is willing to pay shipping costs to get to

Other Notes: I can have the pieces done and ready for you to choose from by August 1 of this year.

Bidding is now open and will end Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown), EXCEPT that last-minute bidding on an item will extend the bidding for that item. More information.

Custom chocolate order, your choice!

Item Name and Description:

I’m a geeky artisan chocolatier, licensed in Massachusetts. I’ll make you one batch of whatever your heart desires. My specialties are wildly varied flavors and geeky molds, and I use top-quality chocolate. Like truffles? How about peppermint, or earl grey, or ginger pear brandy? Bars? I can do classic flavors (puffed rice? mint chocolate cookie?) or the highly unusual (curry coconut lime? pumpkin pie spice and candied ginger? decaf chocolate espresso beans?). I also do some custom marzipans (plain, liqueured, mixed nut) and chocolate-covered caramels. For a general sense, you can browse my website at darkmatterchocolatelaboratory.com — I don’t do a good job at keeping it up to date, and the selection there is a fraction of what I offer, but it’ll get you started on ideas.

One batch is not small. For bars or molded chocolates, you’re looking at five+ pounds of chocolate, and the molded chocolates are shelf-stable and keep their flavor for at least a year when stored at a cool room temperature in a ziploc bag or similar. For truffles, you’re looking at about 150 in a batch; marzipans and caramels are 90-100. One batch is one flavor, or one set of easily compatible flavors (e.g., plain milk, milk with cookies, mint milk with cookies).

And if you want something really custom, add about $300 to your bid and I’ll make you a mold, too.

“Mad chocolate genius” — Scott Lynch

Starting Bid: 125

Shipping: Shipping in the US is included; I’m willing to ship internationally as well, but I am not an expert in international customs laws to confirm that it’ll get there safely, and would appreciate it if you’d bid higher accordingly.

Other Notes: Because chocolate melts easily, this item will be made and delivered in fall or winter, with some flexibility in scheduling. If you desperately need the chocolates for a summer event, there will be an additional shipping charge.

Bidding is now open and will end Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown), EXCEPT that last-minute bidding on an item will extend the bidding for that item. More information.
