Customization: Aida / Elisha

Back in late January, Elisha engaged me for a special prepaid package for her girlfriends.
Here's how it works: 
On Valentine's Day, I sent a surprise email to her 3 friends asking them to pick anything from the blog or customize a design, the idea behind this is Elisha has been wanting to gift them one of my works but she wanted only pieces they would truly love, hence she suggested giving them the free reign to pick & choose, with Elisha bearing all costs involved.
Each necklace/bracelet was also posted to them individually.


I am most honoured to be a part of this, especially these 3 ladies were wonderful to work with, two of them picked ready designs while Aida made this necklace with some input from Elisha :)





A combo of Chrysalis with colours of black & white from here.
Necklace length to be long and 'A' charm added to the side.
