Custom order: short Acapulco necklace

I'm always happy to tailor my Shh designs to suit a customer's needs - and in this case the result was beautiful! The customer wanted the Acapulco pattern in the style of a short Miami Nights necklace. See how it turned out below...!

What do you think? What two necklaces would you combine?

XO Acapulco - how the newest Shh cuff is made!

Hey guys and gals, it's Sadie!

I've been working on a new bracelet, XO Acapulco. In fact it's THE biggest bracelet I've made to date and is inspired by the popular Acapulco necklace.

I thought I'd share with you a little about the design process!

 - It starts with the inspiration (above) - well that came from my love of colour, print and pattern. I LOVE the Acapulco necklace so much, it's my personal favourite piece. I also enjoy wearing the big, wide Bananas bracelets, and so started thinking about a big cuff bracelet that would coordinate with the Acapulco necklace.

- Then I begin designing the pattern on my laptop. I often share this process on the Shh Instagram stories - so you may have seen this! When I'm happy with the design, I make the prototype.

- For the wide bracelets I have a different bead loom. Even stringing the loom for a piece as large as this takes ages! I have to be careful that the threads don't ping off as then I have to start all over again....argh!

- Then it's a matter of following my design and beading, beading, beading. This bracelet took approx 4-5 hours of beading (with the odd tea break of course!).

- It's then ready to be finished with 24 carat gold plated shiny bits, photographed and listed online!

Hope you enjoyed this little trip behind the scenes! 
Big love,
Sadie xx

Competition winner number two!

As mentioned previously, we had such an amazing response to the design your own necklace competition that we chose two winners!

The first winner was Natasha (check out her design here).

The second winner was Chantelle! Her design blew me away - so much colour, pattern and gold!! It was my dream pattern - and so I made her a bracelet to match :-)

I'll share more of the amazing designs we received soon!

Beaded leather tassel necklace with sterling silver chain - custom order

Here's a peek at another recent custom order I made. The client had a very specific necklace she wanted to design for one of her best friends, including colours, textures, chain lengths and style. It's sometimes easier working with a client who knows exactly what they want, as I can just go ahead and make it! :)

There are some photos of the finished necklace below - it was a handmade leather tassel, beadwork around the tassel, and a mid-length fine silver chain.

Custom order: redesigned sterling silver Pacific pearl earrings

I recently worked on a custom order with a pair of beautiful Pacific Island pearls. They were set as sterling silver studs, and my client preferred drop earrings.

We worked together to design and reset them as the sterling silver diamante drop earrings below - and they looked gorgeous!

Competition winner number one!

We received a great response to the Shh by Sadie design your own necklace competition....including a whole school in Thailand!!

There were so many wonderful entries from Thailand that we chose two winners - one from the Thai school, and one winner from the other general entries.

The winner from Thailand was Natasha! She designed a gorgeous rainbow pattern, with a very detailed mini rainbow inside each heart. Her exclusive necklace is on her way to her!

Have a look at some of the designs below - there were over 60 of them, and some of these were drawn by children as young as five :-)
