Marvelous, darling!

6th May 2010

I was so pleased to be asked by Sheila to make this bespoke necklace for her. We had several consultations to get the right purple colour Swarovski crystal beads, and for the necklace strands to sit at just the right place to go with a particular outfit she has. It contains various shades of purple, and it was very important that the necklace compliment and not compete with the beautiful dress.

I am really pleased with the result. We settled on tanzanite AB bicone beads to alternate with the faceted quartz crystal beads, and I wire wrapped them together with a very simple chain to make this elegant design. 

In reality, the subtle purple means that Sheila will be able to wear it with all kinds of purple shades from the rest of her wardrobe, which is fantastic, as I am all for getting the most of your jewellery and wearing it as much as possible.

Another commission from Chrissie from Hat Therapy, here in Hebden Bridge. She wanted some really simple everyday earrings which were fun and cute, and she really liked the raspberry pearl beads she’s seen before.

Voila! Aren’t they just darling?! 

And that’s just what I am going to call them, I will be listing them in my shops very soon. I will also have midnight blue and white available.
