Earring Challenge Day 18

I've been really busy over the last few days trying to finish up a custom order and re-doing a necklace that a customer gave me. One of my favorite customers used to live in Estonia. She went back to visit family in the spring last year and purchased me a necklace that is made out of Baltic Amber. She gave it to me at Christmas and I loved the large center piece but the necklace was just a simple single strand of amber. Well I couldn't leave such a beautiful center piece go to waste so I re-did the necklace and made it into something that I would love to wear. This is what I ended up with and I can't wait for the spring and fall to wear it.

These are the earrings I made for the necklace. I wanted something very simple so that I could let the necklace be the main piece. I think I succeeded.

After I finished the re-do I was finally able to finish up a special order. The bracelet turned out really cute! The bottom layer took me no time at all but boy the top sure took a lot longer than expected! But thankfully it's done so now I can move onto my next project!
