Scenes from the Studio...

Hello everyone! I thought I'd share some photos of what I've been working on since I last posted. I've been creating quite a few special orders lately. 

I just sent off these earrings to a lovely customer in the U.K. They're a bit of a change of pace from my recent designs--very bright and large scale--but I like how they turned out...

And in an interesting synchronicity, they happen to be in a color scheme nearly identical to this post--all different colors of the rainbow, with touches of black vintage bugle beads and nailhead beads.

 I had already picked out these colors for the special order when I blogged about my last color inspiration, but I didn't make the connection until after the earrings were finished how perfectly they matched the mood board!
I also completed these earrings for the same customer...

They're an update on an older style {the first thing I ever sold on Etsy to be exact!} with lots of citrine and freshwater pearls.
And for another wonderful customer, I created these two brooches:
the first one features a cascade of beads that hang beneath it like a tassel...
This was designed to be worn on the client's wedding dress and is another example of when collaborating with a customer yields new and interesting designs!

She also requested a brooch for her mother to wear to the wedding...

And I'll close with a work in progress photo--
yes, I'm finally getting into doing bridal hair accessories!
This is another custom order, but expect to see a comb or two in the shop at some point.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
