Custom Order

Well, I didn't have to list my "Royal Romance" cuff as I not only sold it, but another three just like it! YAY! The buyer has three daughters and a daughter-in-law and these are their Christmas gifts. Working on these has me thinking about earrings to match. Unfortunately, I have several to play around and see if I can make those ideas work!

Seven Years Ago Today

The thunder rumbled, the lightning flashed and in the midst of the storm, you quietly left this world. You held my hand as my life began and I held your hand as yours ended.
I miss you so much it makes my heart ache. I love you Mom.

UPDATE (7/20): Woohoo! The person I was hoping would buy this cuff is not only buying this one, but commissioning me to make three more just like it! YAY! He has 3 daughters and a daughter-in-law and now he's done with this part of his Christmas shopping!

Here's the cuff finished with a lovely pearly-rose 1/8th inch ribbon.

New Piece

I finished a new piece! I know, shocker, huh?! It's a right-angle weave base of Japanese silver-lined milky peachy-pink 11s with embellishments of Swarovski cream rose pearls and Swarovski champagne bicone crystals. I love the antique look of it and have decided to use a 1/2" satin ribbon lacing as a closure instead of a button or beaded toggle. I'll take more photos when I get the ribbon together. I think I'll actually use a model for the photos, too as it looks absolutely gorgeous on a summer tanned arm! The only thing I haven't been able to do is come up with a beautiful name for it. Any suggestions??
