After learning I would create custom jewelry designs for her, Yuli sent me her vision for the bridal necklace that included her hand drawn sketch (#4).
I began the necklace by hand forming the asymmetric foliage.
After the initial shape was formed, I opened each loop and hammered the tip of each "leaf" on the steel block one by one to give it more volume and also add interest.
Then it's time to assemble the parts and add the focal pendant drop. Yuli opted for a clear crystal.
I added two peridot gemstones next to the clasp to symbolize her and the groom's birth months (they were both born in Auguest)
