Sigh. "Yeah. If you could make yourself unkillable just by promising to live, everybody would do it."

"She's being careful," Brenda tells him.

Permalink

"It's your life," says Sanjay, but he looks uneasy.

Permalink

"I didn't mean to worry you. Sorry."

Permalink

"I'm not going to lose any sleep but it's honestly more dangerous than getting a motorcycle, you know that?"

Permalink

"Yes, but a motorcycle won't help people as much as I think I can with magic. There are things worth doing that magic is the best way to do."

"I get that turning invisible could be a big deal -" begins Sanjay.

"Not really, you don't," says Brenda.

Permalink

"We'll just have to see how far I can get. Even if invisibility is all I ever dare to do I think it will have been worth it so far." (She's not going to bring up the healing until she has a reputation from the invisibility rings--who in their right mind would trust a self-taught sixteen-year-old to do medicine?)

"Okay. I have to go, bye," says Sanjay.

Permalink

"Bye! See you!" If nobody else has questions for her, Margaret will leave as well.

Permalink

She is free to go.

And now she has all these bracelets to experiment on: a lobster clasp and magnets and a spring ring and a barrel clasp and an S clasp and a slide lock. Each one gets opened, enchanted for durability and continuous glowing, and then clasped and unclasped, one at a time. Do any fail to clasp or unclasp easily, or stop glowing when they do so?

Permalink

The barrel clasp, slide lock, and magnets work fine. The others won't move correctly when they're enchanted for durability.

Permalink

She writes Brenda: 

Lobster clasps, spring rings, and S clasps all don't work right with the durability spell on them. If we want to have those as options I might need to do the enchantments on just the rest of the bracelet before you put the clasps on. Or we can just do bangles and magnets and barrel clasps, keep it simple.

I vote simple. What about slide locks?
Permalink

The slide lock works too, if you want to start making or buying those.

Permalink
I don't know how much of a cut I get for materials.

What sort of range would you charge anybody else for custom bracelets? I was figuring I'd pay your normal rates plus like a consulting fee or something, if that seems fair to you.

Permalink
It depends. A simple design without any expensive stuff in it would be like thirty to forty bucks, but I sold one for a hundred and twenty once.
Permalink

That makes sense; I guess we'll see how elaborate people want their invisibility jewelry. Feel free to charge me extra for having weird clasp requirements. And I figure I owe you a hundred or two for website help, if you're okay with waiting until your grandmother pays me.

Permalink
I can wait. Do you want me to teach you to update it yourself or do you want me to keep doing that?
Permalink

I'd like to learn to update it.

Permalink
Come over whenever and I can show you how I made it and email you the files, then, and when there's hosting money I'll show you how to make changes.

How does 11 AM on Saturday sound?
