Wedded Bliss

I was honored to be a part of Jen and Mark's wedding back in July.  Albeit a small part, but nonetheless I was involved.  Jen asked me to create some bridal and bridesmaid jewelry to complement her dress and her bridesmaid dresses.  She was going with an ocean/sea theme and her bridesmaid dresses were greens and blues.

I couldn't wait to get started on these.  I knew I wanted to incorporate genuine sea glass in all of the necklaces to keep consistency.  She showed me an example of what she wanted for herself, so her's was pretty easy to create:

Sea glass highlighted by Swarovski crystals and white seed beads.

For the bridesmaids, I used different green and blue colored beads to highlight the cobalt blue sea glass and the pewter sand dollar pendants.

I worked back and forth with Jen to get the design she wanted.  I also worked with the correct sizing to work with the dresses.  A few of the necklaces needed to be re-sized.

All and all, these necklaces were fun to create, Jen was a great bride to work with, and I was so happy to be just a small part of Jen and Mark's special day.

Congrats to you both.  May you have a lifetime of love and happiness.
