commercial commission

These are my first commercial commissions!

I was asked by Art Director, Wendy Hannay, to design a range of jewellery, which would be manufactured in Hong Kong, and attatched to greeting cards.
Above is a photograph of one of the cards with my necklace attatched, this is how it will be sold in the shops. Below is a scan of my necklace for you to see in more detail.
Above is a scan of the artwork (by Omnia Designs) used to illustrate the greetings card.
We worked together choosing colours for the illustrations and jewellery, and I designed each piece so that it sat well in the card format and complimented the flower or butterfly paintings.
This is a new way of working for me, having to think in a commercial way, creating for the mass consumer, to appeal to everyone (hopefully!) and therefore not making my usual more quirky pieces!
I was asked to make 2 of each prototype design. I had to find beads and charms to use that were cheap and easy to replicate in the Hong Kong factory.
This was a really interesting project, and great to receive a big cheque afterwards too!!
I'd like to say THANK YOU to Wendy for believing in me and giving me such an exciting opportunity. I dont think there are many art directors out there who would give commercial commissions to people of my age :)
It is a set of 6 jewellery cards, you can see more below.
