I have one of my most favorite pieces to share with you today. I crafted this gem of semi-precious gems back in college; that little copper paisley piece was one of the first shapes I ever designed + cut using my saw. (Note to self: make more.)
Being that I didn’t skimp on color, this necklace went with every outfit I owned. And, I wore it out! Not literally, of course, because I made it well (toots horn), but I wore it everywhere, all the time. I might go grab it to put on right now!
In all seriousness, quality has always been a big deal to me. I don’t want to sell anything that I wouldn’t buy myself and the last thing I would ever want is for someone to buy something and it fall apart. That said, care should be taken with jewelry as it (mine or otherwise) is inherently rather delicate… if you love it too hard or wear it in extreme conditions there is potential for harm. If your bird + beau item is ever loved too much, let me know + I’m sure I can fix it in a cinch.
