Wedding souvenir jewelry order

My most recent custom order - jewelry for a wedding gift. In the beginning I was thinking to make something more simple, like a matching pattern or a game with letters. But then I thought how romantic and wonderful it will be if I recreate the idea of the vintage lockets, but instead of locket to make a half tube in which the bride and the groom could put everything that is meaningful for them as a couple. That could be a small stone, a piece of something or simply a note with the words "I love you". Constructing the idea was the most difficult side, everything is made by hand from scratch. All metal is sterling silver, except the closing pin, which is made of brass.

So here is a thing - sometimes you have an idea, you picture it perfectly, you know all the steps in order to create it, but one material is missing. This is how it happens with the following earrings at the moment. I see two types of stones hanging from them, but I have hard time finding the right gems. In moments like these one learns patience, so I continue working, constructing more designs like these, soldering, pickling, everything and afterwards they just sit by the window waiting for their finishing elements.
