Want some jewellery with purple amethyst, black and silver? My client wanted something unique and handmade to compliment her glamorous vintage outfit and update it for the Christmas Party this year.

Not a lover of shiny silver, and liking things to have a vintage-style, we decided that I should oxidize and polish the earrings and charm bracelet to give a retro effect.

Mary chose a large baroque silver freshwater pearl for the earrings with this deco-inspired hand-shaped ear wires. The charm bracelet features faceted amethyst, smaller freshwater pearls and Swarovski Jet rondelles.

A great example of how working closely with a client can really ensure you end up with something that really shows who you are and enhances your style.

Email me if you have a custom handmade jewellery request, I’m always ready to create a one of a kind item for you.
