This popped up in my “memories” on FB this morning. Of all the pieces I’ve done over the years, this is one of my all time favorites. Seeing it today made me really anxious to get my room done so I can get back to my jewelry bench again. It has been too long.
One of the reasons this is a favorite is because, unlike most of my pieces, this was a custom work from start to finish, from the ground up, including having the stones specially cut just for this design. The guy I got my stones from at the time was amazing and did a stunning job helping to make this piece happen.
The wings were also something I’d never done before as they were hand formed. I was so shocked at how well everything turned out in the end.
While I’m loving working on building my room, I’m really wanting to dig into something different creatively and seeing this is making me impatient.
