The main reason of sending Luca-chan a love package is because I wanted to make her a DIY jewelry piece for her.
Like Momo-chan, Luca-chan wants a long necklace and she also said long necklaces are hard to come back in her area in Japan.
When I customize jewelry for my friends, I always ask about their favorite style/color so that the final product will be something they have in mind and feel thrilled about.
So before I start, I ask Luca if she has images of necklace pieces she likes, and she sent me these 2 images:
So I see she likes pearl and something whimsical. The first one looks fun, but it seems like it may not hold up well with time, so I decided to create a balance between the first one and the second one.
Since it was around cherry blossom season when I started making her this piece, so I stick with a cherry blossom theme. I picked out a rosey cream colored rice shaped pearls and these pearls does not have a regular straight hole drilled into the pearl... it's more of a "slanted" drill.
And the pattern of this necklace mimics the natural budding/flowering form of a weeping cherry:
There isn't a single chain used in this piece. The necklace has been created by connecting individual pieces of pearls and Swarovski crystals together.
So voila, the final product of Weeping Cherry, a full length of 80cm:
I hope Luca will love it when she sees Weeping Cherry^^
