Commission for a 30th Birthday

Post  Batty on Fri Mar 09, 2012 5:20 pm

Well, I've loved doing this, but not so sure I can take the worry of doing another commission.

The Moon stone was the clients own (this worried me from the start in case i broke it , not that I've ever broken any. but then I've only set 5 stones so far) it was taken from a family heirloom, gulp)
Silver on a gold stem and bezel.

Wow Batty. REALLY stunning. There's something almost fish-like about it. Or tribal weapon even. Gorgeous!

That's different, like said, very tribal. Reminds me of a fish too. Do the three fins move?

The Cleints daughter is a Pisces, I was told she was a real water baby. But all the designs I submitted to do with water, where turned down. This piece believe it or not is supposed to represent a Stylized Leaf. But during the design process I try to concentrate on the person the Item is for. I know the people as they used to be our old neighbour's, so obviously from you comments the water theme is still in there, Brilliant -x-

I like the fact that we all have different perceptions about the piece, VERY interesting, and inspiring to hear you thoughts, Thank you Ladies. sunny

Nan, no they don't move, but oddly enough I made a pendant for my Mother I love you , she is a virgo and that had moving parts, I'll try and get a picture of it whilst I'm down visiting with her.

That is just lovely, Batty. I do think you are very brave to take on something like that, especially as the stone has a history, but what a wonderful new family heirloom you have created.
