My First Custom Order

I was very excited to make my first custom jewelry order and was even more excited that it was for a bride on her wedding day.  It is pretty cool to have someone want to wear your work, but it is super cool to have someone want to wear it on such an important day!

Kelly of Eventology Weddings, who helped me plan my wedding contacted me after seeing some of my jewelry on Facebook and asked if I took custom orders.  She sent me a picture of a necklace similar to the one the bride wanted created and I went from there. 

I made two pieces, a necklace and a bracelet with swarovski crystals and non-tarnish silver wire.  The bride had the awesome idea of adding her something blue to her necklace.  I did a little drop on the clasp with a blue crystal and a clear crystal.  It turned out very beautifully.

My BFF Kasey, a very talented photographer (Monkey Tree Photography) just so happened to be photographing the wedding.  Here is a blog of hers that has a slide show from the wedding!  Enjoy!
