Bridal Order for Brecora

I received a request from a bride, Brecora Broner, to make her some bridal jewelry sets for her 8 bridesmaids for her wedding in October with a peacock theme.  I happily agreed to work with her and was provided with her wedding color swatch and a picture of the bridesmaid dress.  The MOH has a similar blue dress, but with a green sash - the color of the green in the color swatch shown below.

So, after communicating with Brecora through email and getting an idea of what she was looking for, I started working on some designs...

She asked me to try to work these previous designs into the original design that she found in my Etsy shop, shown below:

So... changing out the light bronze Swarovski pearls with the antique brass color, and adding the new Swarovski pearl color, Petrol blue, I created the following bridesmaid set, which Brecora loves and agreed on as the design to make for the bridesmaids.
I think it's beautiful and very unique and according to Brecora, " I think the set is just splendid. You picked the vision right out of my head... Thanks for working with me. Working with you was way better then scouring the stores looking for a set to match. Whew! One thing to check off of the list."  :)

So, next, I started working on her MOH set, adding green glass pearls and gold rhinestone spacers...

And we ended up choosing the design below... with the earring with the blue pearl at the top.

Stay tuned for my next blog on Brecora's bridal jewelry... more pictures of the finished designs of the MOH and also a beautiful Mother-of-the-Bride jewelry set!!

Bridal Order for Shayla

I was contacted by Shayla's mom, who asked me if I could make a necklace and earring set similar to one that she had found online in another Etsy shop.  She wanted a set in white for her daughter, Shayla, the bride.  And she wanted a similar set for Shayla's sister, her MOH, with Tiffany blue colors mixed with white.  In order to guarantee the right match, I sent her some light turquoise glass pearls in the mail to see if they matched her wedding color.  They matched almost perfectly!!  Here are the two sets I created, using white Swarovski pearls, Swarovski silver rhinestone spacers, and Swarovski silver crystal balls...

The following is the email I got from them after they received their jewelry...

"Hi Angela....We both absolutely LOVED them :) She was so happy it rought tears to her eyes...mine too! We could not have asked for a more perfect necklace and earings to go with her dress. MOH was just perfect too...she can't wait to surprise her sister! I will send you pictures of her all done up on the wedding day... :) Thanks again - you are the best! Kris"

And then, several weeks later, I received pictures from the wedding with the bride, Shayla, and her sister, wearing their wedding jewelry, along with the following email...

"Hi Angela, Attached are a few pictures...The wedding was amazing and we all had the time of our lifes...
The girls LOVED their jewerly and it topped off the dresses perfect.
I am sending them in a couple emails...too big of files!
Thanks again

Wow, just seeing these pictures and receiving emails about how much they loved their jewelry makes what I do so rewarding!!  So happy for Shayla and her sister, and to Kris - thank you for such kind words!!  :)
