I have had some very unique requests for Biker Chick Jewelry...and I just love it! One of my most challenging requests was to make a heart shaped pendant. I met this fun loving and adorable woman rider, Leslie, at the recent Stinky Spoke charity ride. We got to visit for awhile as she was hanging out near my display, which was close to one of the few outdoor heaters. It was a cold and rainy day! Her request of making a shape like this was challenging because the chain links are very floppy until they are secured in place and it took a few days..uh weeks... for me to figure out how to proceed. What I ended up doing was gluing one junction per day, starting with the tightest angled joint at the bottom,then the top, and then the sides...and here it is! Leslie is fond of hearts as you can see her very unique heart shaped tattoo she has on her shoulder as a tribute to some hard life events she endured.
Another unique request was from my dear friend, Theresa. She has several sentimental stones that she wanted to have put on a Biker Chick necklace so I made an "interchangeable" necklace for her - so she can change them out whenever she feels like it.
