The above are ideas I presented to the client for the commission on the right.
The above is a commission I designed and made for a young lady's birthday. It is made with Deep Purple Amethyst, Silver Plated Diamante spacers a Silver plated Magnetic Flower clasp and Sterling Silver findings. It's difficult to show the beauty of these gemstones, but they are beautiful and set off with the sparkling diamante spacers.
The above are some of the pieces I have made using chain maille weaving techniques. The first one is a commission made in sterling silver, the weave technique is called a Mobius link and is quite beautiful. The other 2 pieces are test pieces I have made and I think they look really cool!
The above pieces were made for a commission for a very special lady, they are made with fancy quartz, seed beads and Swarovski crystals, The necklace is 26/28" long so sits nicely and looks great over a sweater or t-shirt
The below are just some of the design ideas that I created in response to commission requests. I don't usually sketch my designs as most of the time when I get beads the designs literally jump out at me, but I think it is important to visualise designs for customers. The final designs might differ from the design on the page because until beads are married together on the design board you never know if the beads will 'get on'.
