The design is approved, and now I have all the materials in front of me. Wedding jewellery commission for a friend in pearls of cream, light grey, and rich purple-grey. More on this one later…

I’ve been working on a few new pieces lately. This one took forever, and I’m very happy with it. The glass and brass pieces are probably from a bracelet. I found them in a random bag of bits and pieces, mostly broken, I bought at the flea market a few years ago. The rest is new – freshwater pearls, amethyst, and smokey quartz with a brass clasp.
