It's that time of the year again where I close off the year with my very last custom order which just so happens to be my godmother's Christmas present. Like always I'm stumped as ever but I do know her style of choice is earthier pieces. It just so happens that before this piece I worked on my secret Santa for the JET team. So that piece led me to this piece which is a take on that piece. Simplistic in design but yet so chic and sophisticated.
I first broke out with my supplies.Which consisted of carnelian teardrop beads, rose gold plated chain, gold plated jump rings and ear wires.
I then took the bigger jump rings and put them through the holes of each of the carnelian tear drops.
From there it's time to start cutting the chain. I cut 6 pieces in 3 different lengths for the earrings so that the carnelian teardrops all hang at different lengths.
I then attached the chains to 3 of the carnelian with the jump rings. Then attached another jump ring to the ear wire.
From there I put the longest chain on the jump ring with ear wire and the remaining two on. One on each side to give it a gradual length change.
And the earrings are completed. Aren't they beautiful?!?! Now onto the matching necklace.
I cut the chain to the necklace length I wanted.Then attached a jump ring to one end and a lobster clasp to the other. I did the same exact thing as I did with the earrings and cut three piece of chain in various lengths and attached it to the carnelian teardrops with the jump ring attached.
Just like the earrings I put the longest chain in the middle and the two remaining chains one on each side. All hanging from one of the bigger jump rings.
This part is the most tedious part of the entire process because I want it to be perfect. Finding the exact middle of the necklace chain. After about 5 or maybe 10 minutes I finally found the exact middle and attached the jump ring with carnelian/chain to a small jump ring which was attached to the necklace in the middle.
And the necklace is completed.
And the set is completed. I adore this piece so much that you might be seeing these earrings soon on our website after the New Year.
I won't know what my godmother thinks until Christmas Day or the day after due the mail. Keeping my fingers crossed since I went with a simpler piece then normal. What do you guys think?
