I was invited to my husband's cousins baby shower late last month. As I was going through her Baby's R Us registry and realizing everything was pretty much bought. I really wanted to give her a gift that would stand out a little more and was unique, being that she is blessed with a lot of friends and a very large family, I felt it was almost impossible. Then I realized - duh I make wire wrapped jewelry and pretty darn good. Still headed out to grab a few things for her soon to be baby boy for tradition sake. Then went to work on designing her a custom one of a kind necklace that hopefully in 15 to 20 years, when she come across it, it will take her back to that special day of her baby shower that she spent with all her friends and family. Which was awesome and the cake her mother-in-law made was completely amazing.
The necklace and pendant is 100% sterling silver, the beads are a mixture of new jade, purple aventurine and light turquoise that are strategically place to enhance the lettering. The "b" and the "y" are around 1 1/2 inches in length using more than one strand of wire for the frame. Soldering the center ring that each letter is connected to, I wrapped randomly (some what :-) couldn't be to random) the three different kinds of beads to add some more blue. Finishing it off I curled the ends to add a little extra detail and connecting everything with a little thinker gauge jumprings in case the baby tugs when she wears it.
Sorry for such a blurry picture. I was in a rush to get pictures and after uploading them to the computer most of them were blurry. :-( If you would like to see more of my jewelry, please do not hesitate to visit my website at www.heathermorales.com - Cheers
