Anniversary Special

This set was custom ordered by a very lovely lady for her upcoming silver wedding anniversary. Criteria were: to match the gown she is going to wear, quality and originality (that is, not common everyday stuff). It is a chainmaille weave called Helm chain which I adapted into flowers. To make them stay round the AR is very important. I used 18g sterling silver wire and Swarovski CAL crystals embedded in the flowers and as the dangles. For these and the earwires I used 20g Sterling silver wire. It took 569 rings to complete the set and I have the blisters on my fingers to prove that all was handmade!

This set will never be made again by me as it is. So my customer can be assured that she really has got " one of a kind" jewellery. And I hope she enjoys wearing it as much as I did creating it!

Till next time.

  2. Hi Anne, only just picked up on your comment on my craft blog from 22nd November - sorry. I do the jewellery just for myself so don't post it at the moment but I will do some scans and post them for you in a few days. Seeing your daughter's post and her name makes me think you have an interesting life - as in very different to mine. I have a cousin in Kenya. Creating things for people is a joy isn't it. I have really enjoyed creating my cards this year but as you will see from my recent posts I haven't had time to do everyone!
