Custom pieces

So, what have I been doing in this interlude?  Lots of custom pieces!  (And working my day job, training for a few runs, and trying to read a good book now and then)  Here are some pictures of recent orders.

 A silver and blue necklace inspired by this necklace that I wear all the time.

 Matching beaded rosaries made in birthstones for a group of cousins including October, January, September, March, and August.

A close up of the August rosary.

Matching birthstone rosaries for the cousins' Mamas- June, September, and April


 All the rosaries- kids and adults- coordinated with the same Our Father beads and matching metal components.

Last for this post is an itty-bitty baby bracelet to celebrate Baby K's baptism.  Light pink pearls, sterling silver, and ruby birthstones.  You can barely tell in this picture, but the lobster clasp is detailed with a heart and attaches to a grow-with-me chain so that this miniature bracelet will still fit K as she grows.

I enjoy the collaborative process of creating custom pieces and developing a design specific for someone.  It makes the design process more challenging and more rewarding when the piece is completed.  Have you ever had a piece of jewelry custom made?  Was it for you or a gift for someone?  Why did you chose custom design over already made?
