We love sharing behind the scenes of custom piece we work on. With Mother's Day just around the corner, we go to work on a unique gift for our godmother. She loves buying our pieces but for Mother's Day, her birthday and Christmas we design a custom piece(s) for her as a gift. For this gift based on her last purchase which was a rich and earthy piece we decided to keep with the same theme and came up with we're calling Tribal Queen Carnelian Wood and Amber Leather necklace with matching earrings. (shown below)
We first selected the round carnelian beads, brown wood beads and detailed brown amber dagger beads. Which we purchased a while back at a the Whole Bead Show a year or two ago. We figured on the configuration on our jewelry board.
We strung them together on beading wire but it was missing an element. Leather would complete the look and make it a true statement piece.
So we cute piece of leather and add a chain extension for times she might want to wear it longer or shorter. Walla, it's complete.
Any necklace wouldn't be complete with a matching pair of earrings. Featuring the brown wood beads and the carnelian beads and the set is complete.
Since we were on a time crunch and wanted to get it in the mail it time for Mother's Day. We took her handcrafted gift even further with a handcrafted card featuring stamps, washi tape and a blank card that we always have on hand. We got to work and walla. We created our own Mother's Day card.
With a quote found on Pinterest and a sweet handwritten note our gift to our godmother is complete. Now to wait for her reaction when she gets it in the mail. We'll be sure to share her reaction with you all.
