I design and create custom handmade wedding/bridal/special occasion jewelry made with beautiful Swarovski crystals and pearls in a variety of colors and styles, as well as beaded ID badge lanyards, and beadwoven stitched jewelry, including peyote, Herringbone, and crossweave stitches.
First and foremost, I must thank Tracey Hotze, a bridal customer who found me through my Etsy online jewelry shop!! I feel blessed and honored to have been asked to design and create her bridal party jewelry for one of the biggest bridal parties I have ever worked!! We were in constant contact from Day 1 when she first emailed me after finding a bridal jewelry set I had listed in my Etsy shop. She sent me pictures of dresses and specifics of what she was looking for in her wedding jewelry as far as colors, designs, etc. She had 8 bridesmaids, 3 usherettes, 2 bridal assistants, 1 jr. bridesmaids, 1 flower girl, 3 program girls, mothers of the bride and groom, and for herself!! Huge wedding party!!! LOL But I was thrilled to take on this big bridal order for Tracey!!
Before showing pics of the wedding day, I want to list previous links to the other blog posts that I wrote about during the entire process of creating her custom bridal jewelry. To read more details and see more pictures of my work in progress, please see the following links:
