Here’s another wearable art piece for Kate but this time it’s for the real Kate! Kate happens to be the daughter of my client from whom she named her facebook account. I guess you’ve read about it in my previous blog post. I have received an email from her with her picture and a list of her favorite things. I find her list really cute with her own handwriting and drawing in it. She wants a fairy locket necklace from me and I’m happy that it’s not the chibi-ish type. Kid’s stuff is my waterloo. I really have no qualms in making kid’s jewelleries but I just feel that they are all the same fairytale looking characters that I'm not good at. Whenever I receive requests to design something for my clients’ kids (usually the chibi-ish type), these are the moments I wish I live in Cinderella’s time when I can ask fairy godmother to lend me her magic wand. Haha!
|This is her cute list and her email says: "Dear Tita Ghie,|
This is me after swimming. I like my mommys necklace. Please make one for me."-Kate
I’m thankful that she sent me her photo (not posted here, hehe) where I can take at least a glimpse of who she is. Her Mom knows that I rely on impressions, photos, writings, drawings, etc. in order create pieces that would reflect my client’s taste (btw, this is the 6th time i custom made for her. ). This is the fairy locket necklace I made for Kate:
|"uuuu... the fairy is shinny!!!" -Kate |
I used a glittery background for this.. =)
|A splash of her favorite colors...|
"WOOOOWWWWW! Looks really beautiful, Tita Ghie! I love it."- Kate
I also made another Hunger Games inspired Dandelion Cuff for her Mom. I experimented on gold inks to mimic the metal looking base and I’m very happy with the outcome.

|Design Elements: Dandelion, Tracker jackers, Night lock berries on a faux metal looking twigs base|
I wanna share also my third version of the Mockingjay Necklace I made for my co-artist Cathy of Crafter’s Luck. This is for her 13 year-old daughter so I made the details a little modest and the design not overpowering.
And this is me on the beach, hehehe… Have a happy work week everyone!!!
