Prototypes

Jackie-updated

Nearly 6 years ago I made a really pretty necklace for my “Anti-Depression Glass” exhibition.  I only ever made one of them, even though I really liked it, and it sold.  I am not sure why I was reluctant to make more, but I think it probably had something to do with how tricky they are to make!

I did feature it on my website for a while though, and a lovely lady contacted me to ask me if it would be possible to make something similar for her.  I had almost forgotten about the necklace and how tricky it was to make….so I agreed to try to make another one.

So, this picture is of the first prototype of that necklace.  It’s really pretty, but it’s not quite right yet.  So, I am going to have another try at making the necklace, with just the paler beads on it, and with a few more beads on the chain so that they sit both ways.  I can’t exactly remember how I did the last necklace, so it’s all a bit trial and error until I get it right.

I know some people would be reluctant to ask me to do this, but I am actually really enjoying the process with this customer.  I enjoy trying new (old) things, and making jewellery that is just right.  And when I do get this necklace right, it will be worn at a wedding in England…how lovely is that?
