Custom Bridesmaids Jewelry

Happy Thursday everyone! The week is almost over and it is sunny in Northeast Ohio today, which is a GOOD thing! Sunlight is a good thing especially when we see very little of it in the snow belt :) We had almost three feet of snow dumped on us over the last month and for the first time in weeks, I am starting to see grass! I am so thankful that I have jewelry design to keep my mind off the fact that it's too cold outside to do anything and I can keep busy designing jewelry for our websites and upcoming weddings!

I just recently finished designing some jewelry for an upcoming wedding this spring for the Bride and her Bridesmaids. In fact, I just mailed out all of the jewelry on Tuesday this week! The entire design for the jewelry was done via email with the Bride and I am so thankful that everything went smoothly and all of the jewelry turned out beautiful! I realize that for some Brides out there, designing jewelry long distance can be intimidating, but, the process is very easy if you have accessibility to the internet and have email. We work very closely with the Bride and do not move forward with the design if we don't have her approval. As a result, our designs are unique because we place the Brides personal taste and style into every piece.

The Bridesmaids jewelry that we just completed took about 4 months overall to complete from the first time I spoke to the Bride to completion this week. We also designed the Brides necklace, earrings and hair clip. The Bridemaids dresses are fuschia and of all different styles which is very popular these days. When our Bride first contacted us she fell in love with one of our more popular necklaces which features a flower offset to the side and a string of crystals and finished with chain and a clasp. She emailed us pictures of her Bridesmaids dresses and we began building our design from there and we designed a necklace for her with the same features of the original necklace, but with the colors to match her Bridesmaids dresses and simple drop earrings to match. Here are some pics of the jewelry that we made for her!

Seaglass Jewelry-Custom Designs

If you are a FAN of Love Designs than you already know that Hannah and I love to create unique, one of a kind pieces that reflect our customers personal taste. We especially love designing Seaglass Jewelry. As avid collectors of seaglass or beach glass, we know how special each piece of glass is. There are memories attached to each piece and we love helping our customers create keepsake pieces for themselves and their loved ones.

We recently designed some pieces for a good friend and customer of ours for Christmas. Our friend loves collecting glass on the beach and over the summer, she and her sister found some beach glass off the coast of Lake Erie during her sisters visit from North Carolina. They created some wonderful memories with their family that day and wanted us to design some pieces to help them remember these good times when they were apart.

Two of the necklaces that we created were for her daughters. She had two small pieces of beach glass and we decided that it would be a wonderful idea to wrap the glass into pendants and then personalize each necklace with a hand stamped drop with each girls initials next to the pendant. The result is beautiful and her girls now have a personalized piece of jewelry to remind them of all of the fun they had on the beach :)

The other necklace was for her sister who is in North Carolina which we had previosly designed her an Emerald Green Seaglass Ring for her birthday last year. Since her favorite color is green, we handwrapped the piece of glass that our customer gave us and added a little sparkle of green with a single peridot Swarovoski Crystal Bicone. She now has a necklace to match her ring that she received for her birthday!

The final piece that we created is this gorgeous Emerald Green Beach Glass ring for our customers Mother. The result is stunning and a unique gift that you won't find anywhere else.

Customized Style for Your Wedding

Wow! I've been away far too long! It's been a nice break and now it's time to get back to WORK! Even though I have not been blogging...I have been very busy. We are just wrapping up the jewelry for a Wedding in the Spring and I thought I would share with you some of our work. This is for a Bride that we've been conversing back and forth via email. We've worked very closely with her and I did get her permission to share these items with you.

I know that some of you out there may be a bit nervous about having your jewelry designed long distance...but, let me assure you, it's not as difficult as you might think and we work very closely with the Bride on all design decisions, update her with pics of our progress regularly, and do not proceed without her consent.

For her Wedding Necklace we used a Filigree Crystal Brooch and Swarovski Crystal Pearls in a Cream colour. Each Pearl is Handknotted and secured to the brooch. The two strand necklace is finished with a silver filigree two strand clasp. We have also designed matching earrings for the Bride but, have not yet taken pictures of them.

As a last minute request, the Bride asked Hannah and I to design her a Bridal Hair Clip for the wedding. This was a new idea for Hannah and I, but, we never turn down a challenge! We've custom designed the flower in this clip by layering several floral leaves and securing a single rhinestone in the center. The flower rests upon this gorgeous white feather and is secured to a hair clip. This process was so much FUN and Hannah and I cannot wait to create more of these gorgeous clips.

Later this Spring, I will share with you her jewelry for her Bridesmaids...and let me tell you...the jewelry is stunning :)

Please let us know what you think of these designs and leave us a comment below!
