Lastly I made this commission piece. A lady and her husband came in with a huge diamond that the husband had bought. She wanted it made into something silver and she quite liked a flower pendant I had on display so I did this one for her. It's quite large, over 2" but it works well with the size of the stone. It was quite nerve racking working with such a precious stone as I mostly work with semi precious stones like peridot and amethyst. It was lots of fun to do something I don't normally do. Now that my shop is in a more prominant place I am getting lots of commission enquiries. My only problem is I'm really pants at pricing my work for commissions, I always undervalue my work, do any of you crafters out there do the same?

  1. This piece looks absolutely gorgeous, i'm sure she must be thrilled with it! I just wanted to say that I've just got back from buying one of your charm necklaces from The Little Time Shop (Wilkinsons Jewellers) in Sleaford. I'm so over the moon with it and can't wait to wear it. I also tried on your bangle with charms on but it was unfortunately too small to fit my huge hand through. Keep up the great work, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with next!
