First Commissions

I was thrilled when a colleague asked me to make two necklaces, one each for her and her daughter-in-law; then when I sat down to start my first commission the reality and enormity of the responsibility came flooding at me.

I had made a multi-strand chain/charm necklace for myself (see below) and my colleague asked for one in gold-plated chain, and as her daughter-in-law’s birthday is looming she wanted me to make a necklace that was “chunky and sophisticated”.  It’s funny how all inspiration falls away from you when face with the momentous first commission, I couldn’t even think where I would get the chain from (even though there is a very good Bead Shop in the town I live in).  So days passed with my head feeling like candy floss, until I forgot about my new challenge during a particularly busy day.  Later that evening the creative juices flowed and although the results are quite conservative in design I am very pleased with them.

Today I present the two necklaces to my colleague and hope that she likes them too. I will obviously keep you posted.
