Iya's Necklace

Ryen (Iya) called me 5 days ago, and left a message wanting to know if I could make her a necklace to go with her prom dress. Adding: "But if you can't, that's okay too...." Yeah, right! Like I won't make my step-daughter a necklace for such a special occasion! Pfff! What-EVER!!!! LOL!

As any good designer would do, I start with the questions:
Q: Do you have anything particular in mind?
A: No. Well, I don't want a choker...
Me: Okay. What about colors? (I haven't seen teh dress yet...)
Her: Well, Black and green.
Me: Okay. So black and green, and you don't want a choker.
I proceed to send her an assortment of photos of necklaces I have in my "Reference" archives here, and she settled on a lovely netted design. I didn't want it to be to "Over the Top", even though it WAS her prom, but she said she loved the design. Nevertheless, I DID use some artistic license, and altered it to 'scale', as she is on the Petite side. So here it is:
My own design, based on a much more elaborate "Nefertiti Collar" I've done in the past (I love those collars, but where can I wear them, except at my Belly Dance recitals?...)
She said she loved it, so I'm assuming she did... I can't wait to see it with the dress on, they should look smashing together.

That does look smashing! Goes PERFECTLY with the dress, and with her!

Hi Sara, and Welcome!

Well, I spoke with her on the phone late last night, and she said she still had it on, so I'm thinking she likes it. (she's not a super demonstrative kid, so sometimes, it's hard to tell)

Now, on to the NEXT custom order, LOL!
