Working to commission

Posted yesterday. One of my very favorite 'Family' pieces. Hours and hours of work.

For me, working to commission means:

The opportunity to create something unique
To make something utterly special for the wearer
To make the people who give and receive commissioned pieces very happy
To sometimes take your own work in a new direction
To sometimes push yourself design wise or technically

And sometimes:

Feeling the pressure to make it perfect
Deadlines keeping me awake at night
The cost of the final piece not = the hours you have put in, researching, designing, making

But I still love to do them as the top list still outweighs the bottom one in my mind.
