My Custom Jewelry From Etsy: Part One

So yesterday I spent a few hours on the couch with Chief playing around on the computer.  I spent that time talking with Etsy vendors about some custom jewelry.  I put in a custom Alchemy request, and then proceeded to talk with 9 or 10 people about what they could do with my vision.
Here's what I was thinking:
I saved a picture from someone's shop and I can't remember where I found it, but it was from awhile ago.
I'm looking for a necklace similar to the first picture, maybe with a third strand. Or with the second strand being pearls and crystals as well instead of a chain. I like the size of the pearls, and how they are mixed in with the swarovski crystals.
I kind of like the brooch in the second picture better because it has more detail.
If possible, and the price will increase with add-ons, I would also be looking for matching earrings and possibly a bracelet.

The first 6 or so were doing their own thing, and didn't really get was I was hoping to accomplish.  And then someone finally got it.  We emailed back and forth for quite awhile and finally came to a decision.
She actually knew where to get the exact filigree as the first picture.
She is going to add a large rhinestone to the center of it, and clip of the third attachment point.  We decided instead of having a chain as the second strand, we're going to do a mixture of white pearls and clear crystals like in the first strand.
Then she is also going to do a bracelet with the same focal point and double strands that match the necklace.
Both of these she is making for me for an awesome price of only $43.65 including the shipping!!
I sent her Paypal money for half of the amount, and she ordered the couple of parts she needed tonight.  Which means she'll get started on them this weekend, and out in the mail within about 1 1/2 weeks.
I can't wait to get them and try them on with my dress =]
