Last year I received an email from someone who thought I might be able to help them modernise a beautiful blue Italian glass necklace. They sent through a picture of the necklace, and an idea they had in mind, and I was intrigued! I met up with her, along with all of my beads, and we looked at all of the colours that could work, and talked about how we could make this necklace. I then took all the beads we had picked out, and thought about the design for a while. It was overwhelming at first, because it felt like there were hundreds of necklaces that we could make with all of the beads we had chosen. But sometimes the best way to start is to simply start with one idea, and from there I got feedback on what she did and didn’t like about that idea. We refined things, several times, until we got to the final necklace. And a simple pair of earrings to go with it. This was one of the most wonderful custom orders I have ever done, and I am so happy that the end result was loved by the customer too.
