The beads she picked up were a great mix of turquoise, colored magnasite, red coral and some funky lampwork beads. The colors were such a perfect mix for her vibrant personality I was instantly excited to make something with them.

After discussing what she likes to wear for jewelry, I set out to make something truly special that showcased her personality to a T!
The necklace is a longggggggg necklace - 42"-ish. I wanted to incorporate the beads she selected with some seed bead work of my artisan hand. I also wanted to make a pair of complimentary earrings because a piece this bold needed some WOW earrings to go along with it.
My jewelry is out of this world! I love it!
I love the way you write an email your passion oozes through!!!
Your work is so impressive and beautiful!!! I can’t wait to show my mom!

So when posting the picture of this set on Google+ imagine my delight as people started responding with "I agree, it makes me happy just looking at it" and "Absolutely uplifting and gorgeous work." These coming from people locally all the way across the pond to South Africa! The ripple effect stretches so much further than what we even realize... so my challenge for you today, do something that will make a difference again and again and again!
If you like this piece of custom designed artisan jewelry and would like something created just for you (or for someone that means a lot to you) now is the time to begin talking about Christmas gifts. Drop me a message and we can discuss in more detail what you are looking for! I just love creating a wearable work of art that perfectly depicts the person wearing it!
