At first I was thinking of a more traditional design based on baby boys. But, as I started working on some designs I decided that focusing on babies limited the wearability of the piece. Instead I decided to use the baby's name and birthstone as my focus.
Here are some designs I came up with.
The woman who commissioned the piece had her family vote on their favorite design. The vote was 4 to 1. My favorite is the one they chose. What's your favorite?
I'll begin working on the piece tomorrow and will share a pic in a later post.
