Honey Maple Revisited

My BFF - MB, asked me to create a set (necklace/earrings) for a co-worker who was retiring. 

Ms. Loretta's a regal woman, gracious, tall, full and elegant.  I was told Ms. Loretta wanted something in the Honey Maple that was Afrocentric ... I think I filled that order.  I mixed Honey Maple (she saw my other set and fell in love) with Bali silver (quick lesson, if you don't already know, Bali silver is stunning, heavy and can be very bold), and 8 and 6 mm sterling silver beads.  I had a blast making this set.  The Bali silver makes the necklace heavy, so I used a heavy wire and a sterling silver toggle.  The picture came out a lil fuzzy, but I asked MB to get a pic of Ms. Loretta in her set, but of course MB's techno sluggish - lol!

Easter's almost here ...

A co-worker asked me to create a set (bracelet, earrings, and necklace) for her daughter (who I thought to be about 12).  All I was given was that her favorite color is pink ... I selection Rose Quartz with pale pink crystals.  How'd I do ...

It was a hit!  I was asked to produce another in green ... I selected Jade with pale green crystals. 

Next up purple ... and of course I found Purple Jade.  Stay tuned ...
