Friday Featured Piece: Thystvine Set

This week featured piece taken from my latest jewelry set project.
It was request by my old friend for her wedding day.

She came to me few months ago, requested me to design something for her wedding. Her requests were: purple, beautiful, classy, with a bit glamorous touch.

When I started to design her jewelries, I was really fond of Swarovski square ring. And really wanna try my hands on it.
So I designed a jewelry set using it. Fortunately she approved my design (yeay!).

The jewelry making process begun, and I just realized that it’s not as easy as I imagined.

The Bracelet

To set the square rings was not easy. Specially if I want it move freely like chain. I used jump rings here if you can see the details clearly.
When I finally managed to set three square rings as the bracelet focal piece I stucked.

Second problem was to make the rest of the bracelet. I wanted it to be delicate.
I then decided to make some vines and attached some amethyst Swarovski crystals. I’m very glad that it turned out into sturdy yet delicate part.

Bracelet parts done, assembling them was not a big matter at all, not to mention some tiny jump rings attached to the focal part lol

The Earrings

She asked me to make her pierced earrings with chandelier look.

Just like the bracelet. Biggest challenge was to set the square rings. With some tricks I finally managed it, and added amethyst Swarovski drop to each swirls.

Overall the design was look like intertwined vines with some amethyst splashes.
I love how it turns out after I cleaned and polished them using my new flexshaft (YEAY!!! Happy dance).

Moreover, I’m really glad that she love them.
I can’t wait for her wedding pictures, hopefully she will send me the pic because I can’t come to her wedding reception (I’m sorry..)

By the way, this set was made with lots of prayers within each intertwined vines, each swirls and rings and coils..
Prayers for her happy marriage and love life.

Happy wedding, Vin 🙂
