In January I met with fabulously colourful knitwear designer Becky Dodman to discuss a commissioned wedding necklace. Becky LOVES colour (quite possibly even more than I do!), and had a list of elements she wanted included, like the cute lil robot for her now husband, a rose quartz arrow head, and lots of bright bold colours.
Well working on such a personal project is terrifying and exciting at the same time!! I was so honoured and touched that Becky had chosen me to create her necklace, and really wanted to create a piece that was as wonderful as she’d imagined.
We had decided on six different ‘straps’ or woven segments, and Becky wanted:
the words “kiss me'“
a love heart
diamonds / zigzags
the eye symbol
the word “Si”
And so I got busy designing patterns and ideas! I’ve shared some of the progress and design work below, alongside photographs from Becky’s big day.
