It all started with a conversation between our two computors (well it was us typing but through the computors we were communicating lol). An idea which led to this sketch which was the first part of the design ~ i'm not usually a sketcher ~ the ideas tend to just flow from my head but when its a custom order I find by checking with the client that I got the most important aspect of the design right.
With much use of my trusty saw, file and torch I made up the base before a huge snag hit the studio of creating ~ the gems I ordered to go with her still hadn't arrived ~ it took 5 weeks before I could continue with the project.
And then they arrived and I could add the rest to the base, set stones and generally finish her up!
And here she is ~ Lost in the Lunar Eclipse
With some complimenting earrings ;0)
There's nothing like a commission to get your creative juices flowing ~ I always seem to move slightly out of my box with them and this I love!
