Dragonfly - handmade necklace commissions.

My sister in law, Sherri, is great at making hand made cards. She recently made a lovely dragonfly birthday card for a friend and asked me if I could make a necklace on a dragonfly theme....

Aren't they amazing creatures? I love that deep blue shimmer.

Unfortunately I didn't have time to make a dragonfly myself, but I saw quite a few nice dragonfly bits and bobs around, so I made a few for her to choose from.

First up, an asymetric necklace on a double sterling chain with shimmery blue pearls...

Number 2..... a slightly larger silvery dragonfly charm with a rosary style necklace..

and last but not least.... a sterling silver dragonfly, set with a 3mm facetted mystic topaz, on a snake chain.

I love to make commissions like this where I can provide a few different options. It means I stock up my shop, and give the customer some choice - win:win.

Sooooo, which do you think she chose? Which would you go for? Let's see if anyone guesses right!

Time flys on....

No way! Has it really been THAT long since I blogged?? Where's the time gone?
Since then we've been on a little holiday to Italy...

...the girls had such fun. The little seaside town we stayed in, is just completely geared up for kids. As well as the beach there was a pine wood in the centre of the town with meandering paths, and an amazing number of kids rides, and play areas.

And then there was the ice cream.

Think I need to get back on track with my running. ahem..

It was also Eve's 4th birthday. I love that she loves to wear her pretty her party dress so much, but still wants to accessorize it with spiderman face paint! (even though all her friends chose butterflies and flowers). How cool is she? hee hee.

I've also been really busy making jewellery - mostly my fingerprint range. I will take some pics and let you see later in the week....

Take care
