For Nancy

About this design:

These were created for Nancy, though I was slow in finishing them due to issues with my hip ( it still hasn't recovered from surgery in April) and dealing with lawyers, but she was nice and patient, and I finally finished them. She provided all the materials, so I only know that the findings are mostly sterling. Sharing here because I like to keep a record of my works. =^__^=


Provided by Nancy. I know some Sterling, the chips looked like Blue Goldstone, and I know the crystal was Montana Blue or similar. =^__^=

    Some of the components are sterling and some are antiqued silver plate from LB. The chips are blue goldstone and the montana blue crystal is Swarovski.

    Thank you Sonja. I know how long it takes for surgery. I’ve had 2 back surgeries and they were both in the same year. So that was quite a time.

    Thank you so much for making me these earrings. I love them.

    I’ll leave another comment here when I’ve had an opportunity to see them and wear them.

    I adore these earrings. They are nice and long and perfect for everyday since I live in jeans most of the year. It gets in the 90s during the 3 hottest months of summer so I wear capris and some are a jean style. I’m so short that they’re almost like longer summer pants.

    Anyway, this design is very light weight but has a lot going on. I’m looking forward to her making another pair that are simple but are a similar style. Again, I love them.
