Custom Earrings

One of my husband's cousins move to Boston recently and we are so happy to be able to see her more often now. Lilly just loves her! So when her Birthday came up and my mother-in-law asked me to create a piece of jewelry with her birthstone, I was all for it. I knew right away that I needed to make her some large hoop earrings with some natural elements from what I have seen her wear. Her birthstone is an opal and it was a bit tricky to find something that would fit at first, but when I saw these carved pink opal leaves, I knew I found the perfect item. I designed a sterling silver hoop to go around it that I textured to give it more of that natural feel.
And she was so excited when I gave her the earrings! I was so excited too! It's so much fun to make a piece of jewelry for a specific person. And she looks so good in them! Really, she does.
