This winning jewel was a full custom jewelry piece featuring colored gemstones for a client who lives 3,000 miles from me. We did visit in person, though most of the heavy lifting was accomplished at a distance.
I can work with you at a distance too.
And, yes – those are her custom jewelry pieces on her fingers (above)…
Gems were all over her table, and as we visited, we began playing with color palettes, ultimately enjoying the effect of “canary” yellow Danburite combined with other vivid bright hues – in my Color Palette System, it is the palette I call Bright Lights. Jewel tones don’t whisper.
Before we finalized the design, we needed to select the gems that would accent the Danburite.
Design ideas are easier to come up with than fine gemstones.
Considering black jade, white Mastodon ivory and wood for the bangles, we ultimately decided upon Lucite as it is less likely to dry and crack, comes in a range of colors and is lighter on the wrist. While we were at it, Mary decided to make two cuffs: one in black and another in white. Did I tell you she is a planner?
