Here is my latest commissioned piece, my most favorite of all types of work! A lovely woman who shall go by "Cat Lady" found me online and requested that we create a frame for the impending marriage of her daughter, Alexa, and Demet. Cat Lady sent me a baggie full of special items to include and was very helpful with ideas for other touches, like birthstones of pearl and peridot for the couple.
This battered and rusty lady-in-sunhat brooch was found by Alexa and Demet on the side of a road on a trip to Mexico.
The brass swan is jokingly referred to as "the most beautiful thing in the world" since that is how Alexa viewed it as a very tiny girl.
The Siamese kitty was the first of many animal figurines that Alexa collected in childhood. Both are teachers of young children, so I found some great items to represent their shared vocation.
Demet teaches art so the palette charms were a score!
More of Alexa's darling kitties.
The Canadian dime is significant because a close relative was the owner and skipper of the boat.
Demet is a musician so lots of fun things were found for him.
The wedding will take place in early April and I eagerly await a photo of the radiant couple. Many, many thanks for trusting me with such a special project, Cat Lady!
