Special order request

I was so excited when I received this special order! My onyx and sterling anklet was chosen for purchase at a local shop where I sell some of my jewelry. One of the customers fell in love with it and requested a necklace, bracelet, earrings and (of all things!) a ring using the same materials.

After chatting with her to discuss preferences, my customer opted for a "Y" necklace. I suggested a sterling chain to add a bit of sparkle and to help show off the beauty of the onyx. She was thrilled with the results:

The bracelet and earrings were alot of fun to make. The bracelet was just a smaller version of the anklet she had already purchased and was pretty quick to put together. As she liked longer earrings, I added 3 small dangles to the end and, fortunately, she loved them.

The ring posed a bit more of a challenge for several reasons. First (and foremost!) I don't own a ring mandrel so sizing was a worry. Luckily, she took the same size ring as I wear so I was able to use myself to size it.

I must admit I was really pleased with the way the set turned out - and more importantly, so was my customer!
