My youngest sister, Hannah, and I have been crazy busy lately preparing for my oldest sister's wedding! Amber is getting married this coming Friday, October 2nd and has six bridesmaids in her wedding party. So, Hannah and I have been designing and creating her jewelry and ours (the bridesmaids) as well! It has been a wonderful challenge creating these unique, one of a kind pieces and we would like to share some of our work with all of you. Of course, I cannot reveal my sister's dress just yet! But, here is a brief description of the dress.
The dress is gorgeous, of course, and features halter style straps with a sweetheart neckline. The dress is fitting through the torso, with an empire waistline and flows out slightly from the torso with a small train. It is a cream colour with gorgeous vintage style lace with beading throughout. The empire waist features Silver Shade Crystal Beading! The dress is absolutely gorgeous and Amber is going to look beautiful on her Wedding Day! The Bridesmaids dresses are a gorgeous Indigo Blue colour with each Bridesmaid wearing a different style of dress all long in length.
For my sister's jewelry, we focused on making her earrings and bracelet as elegant as possible. We did not do a necklace for her because it would not look right with the halter style straps on her dress. For the Earrings, we used these gorgeous filigree bead caps that we found from one of our suppliers on Etsy and hand wrapped this gorgeous Swarovski Crystal Polygon Pendant in the Crystal Silver Shade, to match the beading on her dress, and secured the pendant to a single Swarovski Crystal faceted round in Crystal Silver. The entire drop is secured to these fantastic filigree Earring Wire in Sterling Silver. The picture of these earrings just do not do them justice...they sparkle and look absolutely stunning in person!
For her bracelet, we hand wrapped 20mm Cosmic cut Swarovski Crystals in Crystal Silver Shade to these gorgeous Filigree Rhinestone rounds. Smaller Swarovski Crystal bicones fill in the gap and add sparkle to the bracelet. The bracelet is finished with a Sterling Silver filigree toggle clasp and Hand Stamped Sterling Silver Charms with her and her fiancees initials. A single Sterling Silver cross charm finishes this gorgeous creation!
For the Bridesmaids, Hannah and I used Dark Blue Hydrangea Petals which we glued and secured with a single Dark Indigo Swarovski Crystal faceted round. We offset the flower to the side and handwrapped Cream Swarovski Crystal Pearls which created out two strand necklace. The piece is finished with Sterling Silver Flat Cable Chain and an elegant S hook Clasp. The result: STUNNING! The remaining jewelry will be featured in our next blog after the wedding day complete with pictures from the wedding itself! So, be sure to check back in with us to find out how my sister's Wedding Day turned out! We love you Amber! May God bless you and Vince on your special day!
