So now, I am feeling the urgency to get The First Piece to Done!!!
Constraint-less, I have now explored many many different possibilities for this earring design. The size of the petals in length, the number of petals, their width, the shape, the attachment, the arrangement, the shape- flat or curved, soft or stark... the same or different.
What I have created now is a deadline. I will launch the new collection from our new shop in Chicago's Roscoe Village in April of 2020.
The collection is called "Groundbreaking- Florals for Spring" ...with apologies to the Devil Wears Prada....
I will complete this pair of earrings that feature 4mm round gemstone centers, diamond-set ear-wires, 11 petals with two sparkling dewdrops. they are relatively small- 18mm wide.
After these are completed, I will also create a version with 7 petals and a few size variations for each design, and some pendants and rings to round out the collection.
There will also be a very special "One-of-a-Kind" pendant featuring the beautiful oval vibrant orange spessartite garnet featured earlier in this Design Time series. I will add additional colors such as rubellite tourmalines and perhaps some yellow-hued stones as to be yet discovered..... This pendant will have petals that move slightly with the wearer as she moves. I'm very excited!
