A poignant commission

This recent commission centered around the idea of remembrance.  In this case, it was remembrance of a child lost.  I felt absolutely honored to be asked to do this, and I am very proud of the results.

Bracelet/cuff and earrings

I used silver Parawire (As always!), and sterling earring hooks. Also, for the first time, I used some traditionally “precious” stones, albeit rough cut. In the bracelet are 4 rubies and a blue sapphire, and in the earrings are 2 small emeralds and a Herkimer diamond.  I didn’t take process pictures of this one, but it was a more organic process than I sometimes do. Less sketches and more feeling the piece out. 🙂
