I commissioned this necklace to be made specifically for me. I have been reading Aleta's blog for a few weeks now and really love her spirit/soul. And then I learned she makes jewelry.
Sadly my camera is having a bit of a fit with me and not completely capturing the color correctly. The crystals are lavender. So pretty.
I began looking around her jewelry site and saw she made some christian necklaces and asked on a whim if she could do something that was Jewish for me. I mentioned using a hamsa.
Immeditely she replied to me that she could do it and we began exchanging emails with details. I barely had to say a thing. It was as if she knew exactly what I wanted.
This necklace is made with fresh water pearls, swarwarski crystals and sterling silver.
I especially love the clasp. I don't know if it was done on purpose or not but I am calling this clasp the single girls clasp. It's perfect. I don't have to futz with the dooohicky to get it undone at the end of the day. And since I don't live with a roommate or partner that can help me this kind of clasp is the perfect thing and will allow me to wear and enjoy my new necklace more often.
I highly recommend that you visit her site and get a good idea of the work she can do, BY HAND and then contact her to commission your own necklace, earings, or bracelet for yourself or a loved one for the upcoming holidays.
Aleta has an amazing artistic eye and is caring and FAST.
