Leap and the net will appear.
My beautiful friend Virginia and I had been talking about making a pair of labradorite and ruby earrings for a very long time...probably since the moment I began making my own work.
It worried me.
Time passed and her enthusiasm for my work grew.
To my delight, it wasn't so scary!
We opened a bottle of wine and played with stones; bounced around ideas.
Ultimatlely, we came up with a vision and I promised her three sketched variations. I shot pictures of the designs and stones (for proportion) with my phone then texted them to her
Easy as THAT
After official paperwork and a deposit, I got to work.
I had a blast!
I alloyed the necessary 22k yellow gold, milled it into the sheet and various gauges of wire I needed and began bringing the earrings to life.
Making tiny things is tricky.
But I've had years of experience and am able to problem solve with each new creation.
For me, it is part of the fun.
Presenting the finished earrings to Virginia during her birthday party was the best part.
I would love to create something unique for you, too. To get started, go to my contact page & let's get going!
