{shop update} petite eternite necklaces

hi everyone - 
sorry for the slow response to your inquiries in my etsy shop the past few days... my family and i had to fly back east due to a family member passing away, so needless to say it's been a whirlwind past few days!
but, the good news is, i spoke to my supplier and we're on track to get the component in on thursday 12/18 for the much in demand eternite necklaces - so i can begin filling all of my orders for the petite eternite necklace - and those of you who have been holding off waiting to see if i'd have them for Christmas, feel free to purchase it - you'll be safe and can get these in time for holiday gifts!
