the dream comes true!

A friend of mine from college, Hannah, made my jewelry-making dream a reality this Memorial Day weekend in Washington state! I got to design jewelry with her for her bridesmaids to wear in her wedding. Her colors were purple, light blue, and silver. Check out the light blue bar necklace on silver chain and delicate handmade chain/light blue beaded bracelet I made for her bridesmaids to go with their purple dresses!

Pride Prototype Bracelets

A new friend asked me to make a bracelet for him. The only request was "rainbow," so it may be way overboard that I made these prototypes with neon, glitter, and spike beads! But these bracelets are really fun and--it must be said--fabulous!

fabric necklace part deux

The blue version went to my best friend for her birthday. I couldn't resist making one for myself, this time in green!

fabric necklace 30--

this one is inspired by my mother, who used to sew me jumpers when I was a little girl and sometimes made this kind of necklace with the leftover fabric...

custom bracelet

This bracelet went to my mom, and it coordinates (not in a matchy matchy way) with a necklace she wears all the time!

wedding wine charms

It is my jewelry-making dream to make custom bridal party jewelry to go with bridesmaid dresses or mother of the bride/groom outfits, etc. (If you're interested get at me!
A wedding I went to this fall for 2 men did not lend itself to a ton of opportunity for blinging out my friends, but we found a way with these customized wine charms for their special champagne flutes. Letters, hearts, puppy paw prints, a running shoe, and a Tufts Jumbo made them more personal--and let's not forget the rainbow colors! I'm so happy to have been involved in the decor in this small way, and even happier that I got to give a toast!

2014 weddings

i'm letting the cat out of the bag: i gave the same gift to 2 couples this year...
(and i made what i think are adorable matching homemade cards and gift wrap!)
