I’m a bit bleary-eyed
after a week of playing opera performances, a runout concert and a youth program.
My husband and a vodka tonic are calling.
So is the comfy couch, blanket and space heater in front of the TV.
Happy Sunday evening to all of my readers!
I’ve been hard at work on a freelance design project currently for an overseas manufacturer supplying to large scale jewelry retailers in the US. My focus has been on creating two separate collections within specific price point, material and category parameters. This design was one that didn’t make my own personal “cut” today:
Even so, I think there are two elements (the chandelier leaves and the flower drop) that have potential for development in other designs. Proof that sometimes there is a diamond in the rough!
The sixth, and final, chandelier variation on a simple melee diamond hoop, combines the milgrained edge detailing of the hoop with delicate platinum chain dangles. Tiny diamond briolettes at the bottom of the chains tie in with the larger briolette dangle of the original hoop earring:
Here are all the variations side by side as I originally rendered them:
Today, Variation #5, in my series of chandelier earring variations on a simple melee diamond hoop, is another geometrically inspired design:
This earring makes extensive use of the milgrained edge detailing in the original hoop, while also utilizing small bead-set diamonds. These will give a lot of sparkle overall without making the cost of the earring out-of-sight. Tomorrow, I’ll be posting my final chandelier earring variation in this series along with the previous six earring variations side by side.
