Creating this custom necklace was a wonderful experience and a new conceptual design challenge for me. My client approached me wanting a piece that was symbolic of what 2015 meant for her: freedom. She gave me a subtitle of the word to work with that defined freedom for her, “Allowing the fall to blossom into flight”, and I got to work sketching out some ideas.
Working together, we came up with a pendant idea that perfectly illustrated her guiding phrase for the year. The silver sage leaves surrounding the bronze blossom with a green patina turn into wings as it’s falling to support it. They give the blossom the freedom to take flight, and fly freely instead of simply falling flat.
She was thrilled with the result, and I enjoyed creating a truly unique piece that interpreted an idea that was so meaningful and inspiring for my client.
