Custom Swarovski Crystal Musical Charm Necklaces

Custom Swarovski Crystal Musical Charm Necklaces N107-N108
French Horn and Trombone
So many ideas. So little time.

I completely realize we are just nine days into the summer season and here I am (finally!) posting about a custom beaded order I received just before the holidays...2010!

Seems I had created the draft blog post but had not completed it. Recently while cleaning up the blog, I accidentally posted it...and it wasn't ready yet.

So, that mistake, which actually turned out well, has pushed me to get this shared with you. See...everything happens for a reason.

My long time customer, Roland, usually places a wholesale order for my beaded suncatchers. He gives them out to his own customers'. But this time, he wanted two custom handmade beaded necklaces to give as gifts to his granddaughters.

One granddaughter, Lauren (16 years old), plays the trombone. The other, Christina (14 years old), plays the french horn. The best part of this custom order was that Roland gave me full artistic freedom in the overall design, all he requested was that each necklace have a pendant that represented the instrument that each played and that both be made with purple crystals (their favorite color -and mine too!).

French Horn Swarovski Crystal Necklae Redux with Sterling Cameo for Pendant
After delivery of both necklaces, Roland decided he wanted the french horn necklace to have cameo effect for the pendant.

A bit of sterling silver wire did the job perfectly!

I was a little concerned that a 14-year old might not "get" the cameo as very fashionable. But, both girls loved their necklaces! Whew!

The French Horn Swarovski Crystal Muscial Charm Necklace (N107) featured a mix of both light amethyst and amethyst crystals, artistic wire wrapping and was fully adjustable from 13-1/4" to 14-1/4".

The Trombone Swarovski Crystal Ombre Musical Charm Necklace (N108) also featured a mix of both light amethyst and amethyst crystals wire wrapped in an ombre effect on a sterling silver chain and measured 15" in length.

Enjoy girls!!
