I have a client who has commissioned trinkets from me. She has given some of her mothers, fathers, grandfathers and grandmothers jewelry so that I can upcycle and make pieces for her nieces as gifts. I love doing commission pieces especially when it's from a clients personal collection of jewelry. It means more to the client and for the person who will be gifted. Little memories. Here is one of the many pieces that I have done for her recently.
This has been the first time that I have ever used a man tie clip in a piece. I took the engraved tie clip which was engraved with her grandfather initials and used it.
