Last month I had a new client couple come in to the shoppe. They are still fairly new to the area. They had been sent to me by a personal reference. I don't believe they told me who sent them, but God bless whoever did! They brought in a piece of jewelry for repair, plus a few vintage pieces that are very nice. There also was a few pieces that they were ready to do something different with.
After a few visits, I got to know this sweet lady a little better. I found out that she is musically gifted and loves to sing. I could see the passion of this great love in her eyes. They began to glaze over with lofty thoughts, as I believe mine do when I talk about jewelry. She had asked me during one of her earlier visits if I had any musical pendants in the shoppe. I had a couple ordered, but none in stock at that time.
I was so, excited to see the result of the marriage, that once I cleaned it in acid, I had had to finish the piece off immediately. I could not wait until the next day! I did a pre-polish on the piece before setting the diamond. Then I put a high polish on the whole piece. It turned out absolutely delightful!
honey was pleased with. it and commented so
kindly on it when he picked it up. I am not sure
how much of a surprise it was, when he gave it to
her. She called me shortly after he picked it up,
She was thrilled with the results. It made my heart smile to have my craft so appreciated. This couple is good for anyone's ego.
This last picture does not do the pendant justice. The play between the two metals is like beautiful music. It flows perfectly together making a beautiful melody of metal.
Yes indeed I do love this piece, but what appreciate the most in all of this, is the new friendship the Lord has brought into my life.
