Pearly Hues ...A Custom Piece..

 Sometimes, getting back on track after a big break is not that easy.. there is no shortage of excuses to linger about , doing this that or nothing at all..!!

Thankfully, this time there were more than enough incentives.. a few orders that have to be completed in the next few weeks..and I was dusting out all my sketched out ideas , when I got a call from my sis -in-law..

She needed an emergency gift for the evening ..and asked me if I had any pre-made sets...so it was a mad dash to look for them ..there was just one set,that was not part of my experimental collection..and I usually manage to sell what I make or they are largely custom works.. The one I had was not the perfect fit for the person she has intended to give the gift to...


So it was a scramble to come upon a design and then start making it , get my sis-in-law's approval and then pack it up...

Mission accomplished inside an hour... Thankfully I chanced upon these lovely grey tinted Mother -of-pearl beads that I had bought a couple of years ago... Teamed it with grey rice pearls and German silver spacers...and finished it with a German silver clasp too...

I went for tiny ornate bead caps that matched the spacers, for the earrings..since the metal caps were darker, I lightened the bead part by using white pearls , and made simple drop earrings...

So, the coming days will be busy with completing the orders and also doing double sessions at my weekend art classes to compensate for the weekend that I missed ... Just the way to get back on track...
