Communion and Motherhood

I have been super busy working on custom orders these past few weeks.  I thought I would share a few of those pieces with you.  I hope it sparks your creativity and helps you to figure out customizations of your own.

This first piece is a bracelet a client is giving to her niece as a Communion present.  This is actually one of three she is having me create.  The other two bracelets will use Rosaline Swarovski Crystal pearls.

Light green Swarovski Crystal pearls are paired with sterling silver daisy spacers and one larger round on each side.  Sterling silver alphabet blocks are used for the initials.  Cream Swarovski Crystal pearls are near the lobster claw clasp.  A sterling silver extender is used so the girl can wear the bracelet for years to come.  Oh, and how can I forget the sterling silver cross to commemorate the special event.

The next item I created was for a thoughtful husband to give to his wife in the delivery room after the birth of their first child.  The hubbie really wanted to incorporate the peas in a pod to the necklace.

Graduated sterling silver rounds complement the hand stamped heart and the pewter peas in a pod charm.  The front of the charm says "Mom" and the back has my client's last name.  Truly a special keepsake for the new mother to cherish for years to come.

The last piece I wanted to share is a Mother's Day Present.  It's a Copper bookmark and I think this is perfect for the avid reader.  My client's mother LOVES pink so this is what I came up with.

Rose quartz, pink Swarovski Crystals, Rhodonite rounds and some copper make this bookmark magical.

I just wanted to thank you for taking a look at my work and sharing in my creative process.
