In my last post I mentioned that Saressa Designs was selected to design a piece for Alison Sweeney via The Artisan Group. I'm so honored to be designing something for Alison, but wasn't sure where to start. After doing a little research, I think I've come up with something that will (hopefully!) be perfectly 'Alison'. With her birthstone being sapphire and animals (her horse being one) holding such a precious place in her family and heart, I decided to mix two of my current necklaces together: the Counting Stars necklace and the Derby Cat necklace:
Alison's necklace features a large navy Sapphire onion that I've wrapped securely in 14k rose gold filled wire. The Sapphire is suspended from an oxidized sterling silver chain alongside a thick brass stamping of a horse. This horse stamping is made from a vintage press and is rich in detail. I've drilled it and used a 14k gold filled jump ring to attach it to the chain. Sapphire rondelles are set near the clasp to finish it off. I really love it, and I hope she does too.
You can view the two necklaces that inspired this final outcome here:
Saressa Designs will soon be in the hands of the fantastic Alison Sweeney! The selected piece of jewelry will be included in a swag bag to Ali via The Artsian Group. I'm so honored to be designing something for such a lovely person, and a total inspiration. You may know her from Days of Our Lives, and if you haven't seen her on The Biggest Loser, you should catch the upcoming 14th season. Once I've decided what's headed her way I'll be posting photos.
There is more news on the horizon so stay tuned. This year is shaping up to be so fun and such a fantastic blessing!
