It wasn’t all about photography during the 2010 holiday season. Although I didn’t post a lot of new pieces in my shop, Rejardin, I did find time to make a few things for gifts and special orders.
The above pendant is a hand shaped, hammered and tumbled for shine sterling silver M. I didn’t measure it before it left the building but I’m guessing it’s about 2″ in height.
My Mother-In-Law gave me the challenge of this watch. She wanted one that would fit snugly on her wrist and since my expertise is in free-movement bracelets I had to learn a new skill. After much
cussing frustration I was satisfied with how they came out and I think she was pleased as well. One for her, one for my Mom.
A special order. Earrings that look similar to these but shorter for someone with shorter hair.
You may remember these earrings, well a friend really liked them and sent the link to her husband and he contacted me requesting a complimenting necklace. He was gracious enough to give me free reign and after a few days of thought I designed the following necklace comprised mostly of jade and sterling silver.
My favorite part is the back charm.
For me, by accident. I was making a special order Initial Pendant when I made a grievous error, long/short story but it had to do with roaming dogs and 11 degree temperatures. The initials on the back of this pendant are not mine and they are upside down. So, since it couldn’t be sold, I designed something for myself.
If you see anything you like here let me know, in most cases I can recreate the same item. I’m thinking that for Valentine’s Day I’ll be making more of these.
