I enjoy creating one of a kind pieces for my clients and collectors.
My client wanted a unique and meaningful Christmas gift for her granddaughter and provided me with some elements she inherited from her own mother’s jewelry box, including a solitary earring, a broken brooch or bracelet, and other bits and bobs that had sentimental value but were otherwise unusable.
I arranged them on a filigree with E600 glue to create this lovely necklace.
I used bits of chain and bracelets for the neck piece. I was thrilled with the result and so was my client, I actually made three different collage necklaces for her.
This was a really challenging and fun project, and I look forward to trying this again sometime soon.
