I haven’t updated in a while, it’s been pretty crazy here. We’ve had end of the year activities for school (only 68 more days till the kids go back – but who’s counting 🙂 ) and no late Spring lull like I was expecting. I’m not complaining, I LOVE my clients and business, but thought I may have a few weeks of down time before we all kick into holiday planning and no such luck this year. Woot!
Anyhow I wanted to take a moment and post a few of my beauties from the past few weeks. I’m gonna skip all of the same old same old and just show off four pieces that I really really loved.
This one here is Fiesta (ya’ll know how much I love that piece, right?) but kicked up a bit with some added blues to make the (amazing!) image pop.
Then I had one of my regulars request a custom piece that I have pondered for a while. She requested a choker with the photo tile on the strand vs. dangling down. The challenge, we wanted to do some red, white, and lots of blue, wonderful colors but a challenge to not look too “patriotic”. I focused a bit more on the deeper blues to really pop the denim in the image and then used rich garnet to highlight the red in the brick wall. I think it came out stunning!
And what’s really cool is the reverse of her image is B&W so I even added a hint of black to it so when she wears her choker reversed it looks like a completely different piece.
And here’s one that I made for me. Well maybe not for ME but for my son’s kindergarten teacher as an end of year gift. I had him draw a picture of how he sees her and I then took a picture of it and we made a card and key ring out of it. We also did this for my middle guys preschool teacher. I think they came out ADORABLE and what a great way to capture a moment in time when a photograph might not be available.
And the last piece for today is this stunning Double Swarovski Y. Can you say purty?
