Two commissions, hopefully the first of many

I have just finished these two pieces and I must admit although I enjoyed making them I will be so glad when they go to their new homes

This is a wire wrapped amber necklace for my husbands boss who is giving it to a friend. I made the chain from scratch and boy did it take a long time, I was adjusting a filing until my head hurt!!It is being delivered tomorrow so fingers crossed she likes it.

This is a tiara made from recycled copper. It needs some adjustment as well as crystal detail at all the solder joints, final polishing and a coat of varnish. I don't usually coat any of my pieces but this is an exception, we have agreed that the bright and shiny finish is what is need on the brides big day. The bride has already seen it and is over the moon.
