This year for Christmas my Aunt asked if I would make a set of jewelry for her to give my cousin. I said I would be happy to do that, then two weeks later my cousin called and asked if I would make something for her to give her mom. Of course I was happy to.
The first was given to my aunt. It is cherry with a eucalyptus burl inlay that I cut off the end of a pen blank. There was a matching set of earrings, but I can’t find the picture on my computer.
The second went to my cousin and is Cherry with a Purpleheart Squiggle. the fourth is the opposite cut in a different shape and was given to another cousin.
The third is a link bracelet in alternating Cherry and Purpleheart, I believe that it went with the mostly Cherry necklace. I also made a solid cherry link bracelet that went with the other necklace. On a side note, the different hardnesses of the materials made sanding all of the links to the same really difficult, which is why only one ended up getting made. The purpleheart was really hard shape.
My aunt called me tonight, their family celebrated Christmas early and everyone loved their gifts.
These pieces also are my first and second commissioned pieces, so it was very exciting for me.
Thanks for looking and any comments are welcome
