Heart of Africa Custom earrings

Custom Jewelry ProjectsPosted by Gaetana Sunday, January 16 2011 09:38AM
We absolutely love custom orders and right before the New Year was rang in we were commission to do yet another custom order for one of favorite and creative customers. She wanted a pair of earrings that she searched everywhere for but couldn't located them.So she came to Satin Doll & Co. to make them for her.

She emailed us this picture shown above and we went on the search for perfect wooden drops.

So lets start with materials.
We made a stencil in Photoshop and printed it.Also you see the wooden pendants and acrylic red paint. We also used wooden and acrylic beads and silver findings which isn't in the photo.

From there we cut out the stencil and drew it on the wooden pendants.
From there we took our time and painted 3 layers of paint to fill in the stencil but not filling in the heart.Like shown in the design idea above.
From there we had the choice to continue the earrings like the design idea above or do like our customers wanted us to do and surprise her. We took the second choice and chose silver tone findings.We also decided to spice it up a bit with brown pukalet coco beads and red acrylic beads.
Now onto the complete earrings.
Aren't they cute! To date these have become our all time favorite custom order yet.

Do you have a idea and want a custom piece of jewelry?Contact us.We would love to hear from you and collaborate on a great custom piece.
