Custom work is one of the best opportunities to test my creativeness and skills. A friend of my wanted a bracelet designed for his lady friend. The adjectives were rugged beauty, use turquoise but do not imitate the southwest style, detailed but not ornate, comfortable to wear. . . let your imagination go. Our discussion continued. I did several sketches and we talked again.
This is the sketch we decided I would work from - with a few changes. Add two more stones and use the random texture that I use in some of my work.
I started the project and both of us were pleased with the finished piece.
