branching out

the first "branching out" necklace was made out of 14K yellow gold as a birthday gift for my sister. she had requested a small gold pendant that could easily be worn every day...with all of life's hectic moments, hiking, and kids! it's always fun to work on new designs with a specific goal in mind.

the lil gold pendant was just so cute that i then proceeded to make a sterling silver one and then another larger antiqued one too!
i will continue to make them and they'll be in my etsy shop!

a customer on Etsy recently requested a custom-made, personalized necklace featuring the initials A, L, A of her children. it's always a pleasure to design and fabricate a piece of jewelry that holds meaning for the wearer and will continue to exist long after it leaves my hands!
thanks, lisa, for giving me the opportunity to make your necklace! hope you're enjoying it!

this necklace has the tiniest letters i have made so far, measuring 1 cm by 1 cm.
