My first time with GOLD


I was commissioned by one of the nicest people I've met in a while to make a necklace for his "queen" (as he calls her - how rad!). She doesn't wear silver though! So I stepped outside of my comfort zone and did something a little new. I created the piece for her which includes her totally adorable logo out of fine silver. Then I sent it out to get a heavy gold plating. While the company I choose was not the finest in customer service, they definitely came through in quality. I think the piece turned out so great!






Be sure to check out Sally's website, Birdy Botanicals. Birdy Botanicals is a skin care line that is made using high quality natural ingredients. All of their products are 100% natural and 100% vegetarian. Go! check it out:)

I've been dying to see this - we designed Sally's logo, and have been working with her husband as he searched for someone to create it as a pendant. They're both thrilled, and now I can see why!

I was so excited to receive this truly special gift. I wear gold much better than silver and I have to say it really is gorgeous! Not flashy at all. Just really beautiful and charming. My honey had only glowing things to say about working with you to create this. He said so many times what "great energy" you have. Thanks again Christine. I look forward to showing it to you in person some day.
