behind the scenes: my mom’s xmas gift

over the years, my mom has built up quite a collection of my jewelry. every mother’s day, birthday, and christmas she gets a new piece that I create for her. sometimes its a piece that is from one of my existing collections that she fell in love with, and other times I will custom make a piece for her. this year I decided to custom make her a necklace and bracelet. she loved my hillary bracelet so I decided to tweak the design a bit for her christmas jewelry. check out my design and construction process, and the final product!
