There are many times when we craftspeople are asked to make bespoke commissions, or we decide that we want to give a friend or relative something unique for a very special occasion. These can be the projects that really challenge us and give us the opportunity to spread our wings. But our work is often unseen online as it wasn’t for sale to the general public. Please post your amazing creations here! If you’d like to tell the story that goes with them, even better!

I’d like to start the ball rolling with a beautiful, pure silver and pink pearl heart pendant that I’ve just finished. I made it for a lovely gentleman to give to his wonderful new wife on their honeymoon. Ahh…

This was a big departure from my normal work, I even tried to dissuade my client from commissioning it from me because I was unsure whether I could make the perfect piece for him. But he wasn’t dissuaded and I’m so pleased I did!

Best wishes,

Chris (cgreengems)

That’s beautiful Chris @0122chrisg
I’d have to rummage through photos to find something to post. I’ll post back when I find something. Thanks for sharing!! x

I was asked to make a ‘holding ring’ by a guy I used to work with so that he could whisk his girlfriend off to Ireland to propose to her with a ring and she could then choose her own diamond engagement ring when they got back.

Big departure from my normal work as well - don’t normally work with faceted stones let alone a 1 carat emerald. Thankfully she said yes!

That’s gorgeous Sasha! @SashaGarrett I love the colour combined with the silver. x

It was a stunning emerald and I’m glad I got to work with it on someone else’s dollar as it was almost £200.

An embroidered quilt for my daughter and her husband for their first wedding anniversary. It took me months to do.

Fab wreath! A novel spin on the Christmas standards! Will you be selling these in the future?

I’ve never heard of a holding ring, what a fantastic idea and the stone is just beautiful.

I also made my daughter a quilt, requested by her. It was the first and quite possibly the last patchwork quilt I have ever made! Took forever but she loved it. Not too sure why I thought it would be a good idea to use triangles on my first attempt.
