It’s been the busiest two weeks ever, at Rachel Lucie HQ, which has been fantastic news and great fun. Blog posts have been thin on the ground but my pliers have been a blur of activity.

Today I thought I’d quickly share a gorgeous commission I’ve had as a result of a lovely jewellery party a few weeks back.

I’ve used beautiful vintage faceted beads and combined them with jet Swarovski rondelle beads. The pendant is long and simple, on a short fine 16inch chain, to dangle seductively…. Teresa commissioned this necklace for a Christmas event to go with a beautiful new vintage-style little black dress.

(necklace, self-modelled, with Ballroom Earrings)

I loved combining and reusing old vintage beads and am going to be trying to use them again in other of my designs in the future.
Commissions are always great fun, and this was no exception – thanks Teresa!
