Just wanted to share a quick look at a custom piece I made recently. I met a woman this summer who had been searching high and low for the perfect Lapis necklace with no success. After a couple of brainstorming sessions-- this is always the best part. I love getting to know new clients--we designed this beautiful multi strand statement piece. She wanted a classic look without losing the bohemian quality of natural lapis. To achieve this we mixed several different cuts and types of lapis plus a little pyrite to create loads of visual interest. I finished it off with a few touches of gold and we had created her perfect necklace!
A strand of hand linked stones was carefully woven together with four other unique strands, and a decorative extender was added to ensure the perfect placement with every neckline. (I've been told I have a lot of pet peeves, but a necklace not laying correctly is high on the list...)
The final look was exactly what she was looking for: a bit retro, a bit modern with a bohemian touch. An instant classic!
Tell me...what would your perfect necklace look like? I want to know what your mix would look???
