Commission: turquoise earrings

13 06 2013

For Christmas last year a friend asked me to make a turquoise pendant for his mum. With her birthday coming up he wanted a matching pair of earrings.

Never fear, I’m really very sure his mum doesn’t read this blog – so her surprise won’t be spoiled.

My instructions were for a stud earring. As the stones are approximately 13mm in diameter, they were a little too large for the post to be central, so it is slightly above the centre line to make it sit slightly lower on the lobe.

I am always nervous making for this particular friend (you know how some friends will totally absolutely love whatever you make them; but some aren’t so forthright with whether they like something or not; complicated!) … so I hope he likes them, and I do hope ever-so-much his mum does too.
