Custom Bridal Package for Natalie

I love weddings and it just so happens, I make jewelry for them. I made my own wedding jewelry and now have another wedding the create for. Miss Natalie will be getting married in May had has commissioned me to make her bridal jewelry....a necklace for herself and her 6 bridesmaids! A fantastic project!

I finished her bridal necklace a while ago (right) and have been recenlty working on the bridesmaid necklaces. They take some time since the design is a bit intricate. It is based on the Viking Weave with some gemstones intermixed. As you can imagine, 6 necklaces of the style below takes some time to make. A very beautiful necklace.

Example of the Bridesmaid necklaces....Natalie's will be in Pink Quartz and Jonquil.

Carnelian and Montana Crystal Necklace

 I love jewelry. Who doesn't? Jewelry is beautiful and when done by an artist, it's timeless. It can also be tedious and so rewarding. All the fine, small work involved. I look around at all the beautiful work done by other wire-wrappers and I'm just astounded. It's all so beautiful! I want all of it. Instead, I make my own creations to satisfy my need for the sparkly silver and gemstone creations.

In the fall, I wear a favorite coral-orange sweater. Never did I have a piece of jewelry to match. It makes you sad when you look in your jewelry box for that perfect piece and it's not there! I had to make something! I couldn't wear this sweater without a show piece. This is a new favorite of mine and it goes beautifully with that sweater.
