A little bit of this... a little bit of that...

We took the same pattern from the 'ladder' of the necklace and made them into earrings. It looks fabulous together. Enjoy!

A new twist

Here the piece is wired as well as strung for the neck portion. This was done so it would lay flat. The irony on this process is that the design took a turn in a different direction. This was not the intention of the originally drawn designed. This piece has movement w the added pearls at the bottom and the sun burst effect with the dangle 'rays' and additional loose tri dangles at the focal point. It is looking great on the client. Enjoy!

Do the flip - or not

The client came up with a great idea - but the dangle crystals back to back thus giving a two sided double color choice as well as avoiding the flipping possibilities when being worn. Also contemplating accompanying jewelry pieces - Enjoy!

Lets twist 'er' up

The lay out of the beads are agreed upon, everything is lining up perfectly. Now it is time to wire the individual sets with a double wrapped loop - great strength yet beautiful soft in pinks and purples. Enjoy!!

To Dangle or not to Dangle

Discerning whether or not to put dangles in and to what degree. Again this is all temporarily wired and strung. All Swavorski crystals are used in this piece thus far. Enjoy!

Keep working at it

I did not start taking pictures at the very beginning but the process took time commencing w drawings, measuring and matching colors. Then putting various shaped crystals together to make a good fit but in length and in texture. This was wired/strung and re-wired and re-strung a multitude of times to get it perfect. Enjoy!
