Waiting For Supplies to Arrive

After seeing the Trellis earrings, a client was curious about the stones composing the piece. After sending her photos of the Tundra sapphires and beautiful faceted Mozambique garnets, she instantly requested for 2 necklaces that will contain these two.  I have worked on the design in my head and decided on how it will look like.  Future updates on that soon.

I’ve just finished a huge order of baroque freshwater pearl earrings for a wonderful client who plans to give them as gifts to their lady guests.

I am also working on another tassle earring project after a client saw the Mughal Princess earrings.  I will be using her birthstones and those of her two daughters.  Another challenging work ahead for this piece and I love it!

Other than those, I have 2 orders for my Floral Retreat neckpieces, a citrine set, South Sea shell pearl necklace, a pair of Nest earrings.  The supplies have not arrived yet.

Phew! Reading back through this post, please excuse me for being in and out of blog posting for a while.  Although I will do my best to drop in every day, I don’t think I will be able to post long.

In the meantime, why not browse through my shop cause there might be something you might like 🙂

Mughal Princess

The request: re-work the  client’s freshwater pearl earring and pendant.  Use sterling silver.

The dilemma: how?

The solution:

Make my mark with the J.Pedreria Collection’s signature nest setting.  Add a little sparkle with a diamond cubic zirconia ear stud in bezel setting.  It came out like this:

Looks nice.  Sparkly.  Elegant. Classic. 

But remember, ClassicSparklers is all about versatility and creativity.  Stopping here cannot and does not put those two principles into place. 

How about if we add some tassels?

Wow.  The execution is perfect and the earrings become ostentatiously beautiful and glamorous!

But you can’t and do not use this kind of earring to the work place right? I do not think this will go well with a suit. 

So let’s make it more versatile: MAKE THE TASSELS DETACHABLE!!

What about the pendant?

I decided to just add the nest setting. 

When you have an ornate earring, the necklace should be very simple. Amp it up but do not create a confusion between your neckline and/or your ears/head. 

Besides, you can remove both tassels of each earring and add them to the pendant, and VIOLA!

I must admit that this was a very very very very challenging piece. 

For the tassels I used beautiful Israelicut white topaz from India, silver pyrite also from India and Swarovski crystals.  I also made a nice bead cap.  All other components are sterling silver.

I plan to make more pieces like this in the future.
