With custom jewelry design one never really knows when work will come to the studio. Sometimes it’s by word of mouth, or thru our website or from past clients that bring us new design projects. Whichever they may be, I am grateful for the design challenges that come our way. This particular custom job came from CustomMade, an online work shop that recruited me to join as a jewelry artist and maker.
It’s a great company both for the artist and for the customer that wants something custom made. The essence of the project was a husband wanted to re-create a lost treasure for his wife. (That was sweet.) The bracelet fell off her arm while sailing around the Cayman Islands. All I had to re-create a design that would match a bracelet that was lost, all from a blurry picture of his wife wearing the bracelet.
The rest is history. Re-creative jewelry is one of my specialties.
