Out of all the pieces you’ve created, which one means the most to you and why?

“Out of all the pieces you’ve created, which one means the most to you and why? (i.e., technical achievement, most beautiful, personal/emotional significance, etc.)”
This is a hard one for me. Nothing JUMPS right out and says OVER HERE!!!! Pick Me!!!!!!! Because there are a lot of special pieces in my mind’s eye at the moment.
But…. this one stands out as pretty special 🙂
I made it while in a training session in San Francisco. It was commissioned to me, by my Father, as a gift, for my Mother , for their wedding anniversary. And I am a schmuck, But I can’t tell you want year. Possibly 40th?
What makes it special, is technically there were several new techniques here for me. Facet stone setting, though this is a bezel set, it still has its challenges, Using 14kt gold. Real Diamonds. In tube settings. and the woven chain. Hammer forged clasp. I feel as though in the moment I was able to grasp the best of my ability in many new techniques, and execute a wonderful design, and piece.
And of course, My Mom is my biggest fan, customer, and one-woman-cheering team. So she loves it, of course. 🙂
It is a piece I am truly proud or creating; and extra glad it’s a family heirloom.
