This yellow gold rose pendant was created in collaboration with Edelweiss Jewelry. The necklace was made for a mutual friend as a gift for his wife who just had their first child. The center is set with a garnet, which is their daughter’s birthstone. I loved making this piece to commemorate such a special moment.

"Thank you both for working with me on this. I am so excited to give it to her. She has no idea, and it is a stunning piece, perfect for the kind of jewelry she likes (Louisa, you know I've always been a fan of your work), and it came out exactly how I envisioned it." - Dave
