Here Amanda's choice of Rose quartz stone, which I took off just a bit to make a slightly smaller pendant for her necklace.
I followed the rough natural contours of the stone with small crystals and pretty gold lines.
2am is when my creative juices flow freely. The bulk of Amanda's necklace happened then... felt it out and continued adding more beads, crystals, and wire-wrapped elements to this piece.
Beads and wire creep up the woven gold vintage chain from the rose quartz center -- organically on one side, while linear on the other.
I smashed and smoothed more rose quartz stones to create Amanda's earrings and bracelet.
Elements from Amanda's statement necklace made it's way into creating perfect drop earrings and a wrap bracelet to match. Bridal set complete!
A great challenge and pleasure! I had so much fun doing this, Amanda!! Thank you for inviting me to:)
My bridal set was a hit, mostly due to Gale's absolute craftsmanship; the pictures don't do the jewelry justice. As soon as my professional pictures come back, I will be sure to share as I was sure to have my photographer catch my jewels. I wanted something funky and different and that is exactly what I got. I couldn't have been more pleased. You can Follow Gale on Twitter at @NudaDesigns and be sure to Like NUDA on Facebook.
What do you think of the set?
