Commissions revisited

This is a piece I made for my friend’s grandmother in 2012.  The brief was simple – it had to be lightweight and each of the small gemstones has  a significance so pearls for great-grandchildren, sodalite for children and so on.  The eagle is to represent Mexico which is where she lives and I sent it off via Canada to get to her grandma on time.

This is a knitted tiara I made for a stunning bride who got married in September 2013.  It was an immense pleasure to share in her day a tiny bit as I got to see her dress and design a tiara to match what she was wearing.

These are a set of coordinated necklaces and a bracelet for a lovely bride and her bridesmaids I made in September 2014.  It was a rather lovely wedding 🙂

Sparkling Commission

I absolutely love making commissions and this a very special commission that I have made for a lady who came to the Artist’s Open Houses.

It is for three little girls – three grand-daughters for their Christmas present.  I think you’ll agree they are very lucky little girls indeed. Granny wanted three similar tiaras with the linked theme of tiny seed pearls along the band.

Lastly this is silver-plated  wire with Swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls – £35.

I’ve just put all the tiaras in their boxes lined with white tissue, ready for three surprised little girls on Christmas Day.

I think our mascot, Tamyra, approves!
