Crochet Bling Bling

I'm still feeling blue about not being able to dive into my crochet stitches with the fever, flavor, and speed I'm accustomed to.  I'm told, "just a few more weeks, just a few more weeks." Ack! Anyone have a time machine I can borrow just for a moment to zip into the future, be declared "good as new" and then zip back to today again?? 

While I await, I did what any girl feeling a little blue would do -- I went shopping for some bling bling!  I thought back to a conversation I had with the ever-wonderful Rita Weiss when we were at the National CGOA Conference this past summer.  She inquired, "Dee, with all your crochet pins, you must know where I can get some custom rhinestone pins made."  At the time, I didn't.  It was sheer luck that I'd find yarn vendors selling the pins at I now covet.   I decided to do a little research and found a vendor willing to create a custom pins.  Check out one of the custom crochet bling bling pins I'll be wearing at future crochet/fiber demonstrations/events:

How fun!  I think I'll wear it to the New York Sheep & Wool Festival next month!  For those interested, the pin cost about $32 to have made and shipped (which arrived delightfully early this morning).  This pin will now go with my "Get Hooked," "Yarn Diva," "I(heart)Hooking," and "I(heart)Crochet" rhinestone pins.  (Rita, I'll be contacting you!!)

Keeping the language clean, I'd love to order more custom rhinestone pins.  Any suggestions??

So who is the vendor? Or was this a one time thing for the business? I'd love to get one for my Crochet Cabana anniversary.
