Every now and then, when you make and sell jewelry, you get a chance to make something exceptional. That is the case with this custom order. The customer wanted big, bold and most importantly - gold. Every single bit of gold on the set, from clasp to spacers to chain to ball-tipped headpins, is 14k gold vermeil or better. The giant focal pendant is 23k gold vermeil. (For those who don't know, vermeil is pure gold over a sterling silver base. So it's two precious metals in one.) With the current prices of precious metals, this is an extremely luxury, high-end set. And I just love how it came out.

It's such a delight to work with so many materials normally outside my budget. This represents about $150 in materials alone right here! Shocked

As always, thoughts and feedback welcome! Grin
