Day 10 - Create Everyday for 365 days Proje

Only 355 days more to go! 

I think this keychain turned out even prettier than I expected! 

Day 9 - Create Everyday for 365 days Project

I just love how this daughter necklace turned out! The new piece is the daughter necklace.  I was actually brainstorming what the coordinating daughter necklace for this recent mother necklace I made should look like when a customer asked me if I could make one for her young daughter!  I inscribed her nickname on the center of it and added a tag onto the back that says, "love you" to make it so personalized and special! I am really excited to come up with  more mother &/or daughter necklaces! 

Day 8 - Create Everyday for 365 days Project

Today I made an adorable custom Mother/Son necklaces for a beautiful Mother whose Son is so thoughtful and imaginative that he has been telling her for a bit now that he has a golden necklace & she has a golden necklace just like this! It is so special that she asked me to make their pretend necklaces a reality. 

Day 7 - Create Everyday for 365 days Project

Most of my sales are online or through word of mouth and sometimes I don't make time for shows which is sad because I really enjoy doing shows and especially in home parties! So on Day 6 of this project I have decided to make some earrings! I love how they all turned out looking a bit bohemian which is perfect for the weather to start getting sunny again! I made them with plated silver wire and plated silver premade earring wires instead of my signature sterling silver handforged french earwires to keep the cost down.

Day 6 - Create Everyday for 365 days Project

Today was super busy with jewelry orders all through dinner time. After my boys went to sleep, I decided to calm destress by playing with water colors a bit. I made this picture with quote perfect to hang in my studio, "My family is my home & my home is where my heart is".

 

Day 5 - Create Everyday for 365 days Project

I received a custom order request to make something I never have before which made the project easy today!  She sent me a picture of something she saw and liked and asked me to just make something similar and gave me a list of gemstones she would like me to choose from. I chose amber for this necklace pendant and gave her these options!

Day 4 - Create Everyday for 365 days Project

Well the good news is that I have been holding to my goal of creating something everyday! Only problem is that I need to get better at remembering to photograph and post about each thing I make! 

Here is what I made on Day 4. Some more Mother's necklace pendants 

This one says "Mom I love you" on the disc and "to the moon & back" on the crescent moon shape!

Day 3 - Create Everyday for 365 days Project

Only 2 days into the project and I already forgot to post what I made yesterday on Day 3! I guess the important thing is that I did create something new yesterday. And so far this project has been really help me focus on new designs.

I decided to focus on Mother's yesterday because Mother's Day is coming up soon and feel like of all the holidays it is one of the most important to really give a gift thoughtful gift! I made 2 new necklace and sketched quite a few other ideas!
