Designing a Custom Piece


A few weeks ago I did some copper etching. I have pieces in a beach themed shop so I did designs with a mind to creating pieces of that genre.

I posted a picture of my progress and lo and behold I was approached by a gentleman to make a custom piece for his wife using the mermaid pendant on the far left. 

I sent my client many pictures of possible configurations and materials.....












After a few back & forths, we decided on the mixed shape cultured sea glass and copper beads and sort of an asymmetrical look.  


I initially finished with copper chain but after reviewing it my client decided to go sea glass all the way! I think he made a great choice! 





A few days after her birthday I was sent two pictures of his wife sporting her new piece - she was thrilled with the results.  THAT is one of the best things about my job, the look on ladies faces when they love my work!
Have a great rest of your week !
Warm Regards,
Tammie
