Jo & Tich get hitched...the wedding commission on display

Several years ago I was lucky enough to attend a one day course in how to work with Precious Metal Clay. There were four of us on this course and I stayed in touch with one of the girls, Kerry, who some months later invited me to sell my jewellery at a bikers' rally she helped to organise in Horspath, Oxford.
We duly purchased a tent, sleeping bags and all the other paraphernalia required to spend a long weekend in a field with a bunch of hairy bikers & had a fantastic time...actually they're not a bunch of hairy bikers at all, just a lovely group of hard-working people who know how to let their hair down at the weekend & enjoy riding motorbikes & listening to live bands whilst consuming copious amounts of alcohol (it does help, when you're sleeping in a tent for two nights!!).
Re-reading that paragraph,I seem to imply that they ride motorbikes whilst drunk......THEY DON'T ;))
Anyway, Kerry and her partner have now emigrated to New Zealand but we still attended the rally this year and, although they were sorely missed, we chatted to all the usual suspects, including Steve's sister Jo. She contacted me some time after the rally and comissioned me to make a headband for her wedding in September. This was a completely terrifying thought as I have a) never really done a commission before, b) never made a headband in my life and c) don't like responsibility, especially for someone's wedding jewellery.
Somehow though, I said yes & after an evening of playing with beads together, the basic design was finalised. I then went away and completed the piece and here it is, atop the beautiful bride's head, in all its finery......
Jo then asked me to make matching necklaces for her two "best ladies" as a surprise thankyou to them for all their hard work. Below is a picture of the initial mock-up (complete with dodgy wirework et al).
I have tried to upload photos of the happy recipients, but this computer has decided not to play any more, so I shall leave now, to bask in the rosy glow of overcoming my terror of commissions. Thankyou to Jo, Pam and Janelle, for being such appreciative and kind recipients of my efforts. See you at the George To The Dragon Rally next April xxx
