I've been meaning to blog about a recent shower I helped with as well as Michelle's wedding day, but my last two weeks have been so busy that I've not gotten to it yet, so finally with some time off from my day job, I am hoping to get caught up with my blog as well as get creatively inspired with designing new jewelry.
The first photo shows the focal portion of this necklace that I designed especially for Michelle. She is the sweetest gal, and I wanted to make something beautiful, sparkly and feminine for her shower gift from Emily and I. Emily is my 14 year old daughter and she as well as I think pretty highly of this bride-to-be, Michelle. She has since been married, but at the time this was the shower we were helping give for her.
A hand wire-wrapped hook clasp was created for the closure and is used with a mother of pearl open circle.
Included in her bridal shower gift from Emily and I was the necklace I am modeling in this photo, a pair of post earrings to match the necklace and the black headband with vintage rhinestone brooch. Michelle will look stunning with any or all of these pieces. She is a beautiful girl and can really pull of the look of my jewelry as well as any vintage jewelry she chooses to wear. Take another look at the Mother/Daughter photo of her and the fabulous Great Aunties necklace she was wearing. Awesome!
Carolyn, the mother of the Bride has a lovely home, so the shower was at her house. Between Carolyn and I we had most of the crystal pieces that were used to set up this luncheon for the shower. We merchandised it ahead of time to see how things would look and used boxes and different items to give us multiple levels to make the serving pieces show cased better.
Lots of healthy great food was served with the help of a lot of hands helping out with providing food and beverages. It was a group effort and turned out to be a lovely shower.
The table all ready for presentation and being consumed.
