So, after further communications with Tracey, I discovered that she has 1 junior bridesmaid (7 years old), 1 flower girl (3-years old), and 3 program girls (5 yrs, 8 yrs, & 10 yrs).
Jr. Bridesmaid: Tracey decided that she wants her junior bridesmaid (who is 7 and wearing an ivory dress) to have a similar design as her bridal jewelry, with the exception of having the "Y" teardrop dangle, and to have less Swarovski silver rhinestone spacers. So this is what I came up with... (Instead of silver rhinestone spacers between every 3 pearls, here we have a silver rhinestone spacer between every 5 pearls). I sent Tracey a pic and she loved it - just wants the extension dangle a little shorter.
Tracey chose the one directly above, with dark brown and ivory pearls consecutively strung with the clear crystal bicones between each pearl. I like this one best, too, as this is the design I used for my 2 flower girls for my wedding back in 2011. :)
Program Girls: For the 3 program girls, who are wearing dark brown dresses with gold sashes, we decided to go with Swarovski bright gold pearls and dark brown pearls.
I still need to add the extension chains (gold for these) and I made a couple designs for Tracey to pick from for the earrings. Only different between the two shown is that one is a little longer, with an additional crystal on top.
In the next post, I will be showing the final pictures of the bridesmaids and usherettes designs, boxed up and ready to go, which I have already shipped to Tracy. I should have all of the program girls', jr. bridesmaid, and flower girl sets completed and ready to go, so I will have pics of these completed sets. Also, I hope to have a good start on her mom's jewelry. She has requested that I make something similar to the following for her mother's bridal jewelry... I am pretty sure this is the RAW (right angle weave) stitch, which I love doing, and so I don't think it will be difficult to do. And then I will create some matching earrings to go with it.
Stay tuned for more and feel free to leave comments!! Including Tracey's bridal jewelry, I am currently working on 4 bridal jewelry orders simultaneously (2 of them are in October, 1 in Aug, & 1 in Sep), and so I have plenty to blog about! LOL I want to write about and show pictures of these other bridal orders, as well... just not sure when I'm going to get to them.
