One of Our Favorite Pastimes

Both Eric and I love making jewelry. I particularly like designing for clients. I like when there’s a person connected to our design. Eric enjoys making custom pieces like the sterling silver tear drop pendant he created for this piece. It’s designed to hold a lovely faceted topaz briolette.

The necklace was designed for a married couple we know to give their friend. They chose a sterling silver tube setting with aqua blue appetite beads, white topaz beads, blue/green quartz pendant drops and the lovely tear drop pendant Eric created. It’s finished with an intricate sterling and marcasite extender clasp. (This allows the client to make the necklace full length or shorter if desired.)

This is one of my favorite designs. This necklace was made better than our first necklace because the pendant was purchased and not designed for function. The pendant on this necklace is designed for movement.
