It is now officially the beginning of the Christmas season in my book! I love Christmas time, but I am not one to start celebrating it before Thanksgiving. But, I am already starting to think about Christmas gifts! I wanted to offer a great idea for your loved ones this Christmas. A personal handcrafted jewelry piece, made from your very own family heirloom pieces. I know that my grandmother has TONS of old, very cool jewelry sitting in her house and I bet that someone is your family does too! I can take vintage earrings, pins, or broaches and make them into a necklace that you can wear today! If you provide the broach or pin, the price of the necklaces are discounted! I also have many unique, vintage pieces to choose from if you do not have one that you want to use already, but I wanted to throw the idea out there of people using pieces from their family already. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions or inquiries. I hope I can make your holiday gifts EXTRA special this year! Here is an example of a necklace that I made from a friend's grandmother's old jewelry, just to give you an example.
This wedding jewelry is long overdue. I made the jewelry back in August, but being a teacher and having the school year start, I got a little preoccupied. But, better late than never right! So, here are the pics of the jewelry I made for both the bride and then for the bridesmaids. They were made to match a rust colored dress.

Ok so it has been a really long time since I have posted anything! Things have been busy! I wanted to put the word out there that I now am doing wedding jewelry and accessories. I recently had the opportunity to design and make jewelry for my best friend's wedding. It was so fun and artsy. All of the necklaces were different. To see some of the necklaces on a person, click on this blog post of her amazing photographer. Amanda Donaho is a very talented photographer that was able to capture the wedding perfectly! Here is one of the photos taken by Amanda. Don't forget to check out her blog and website!
The pieces of jewelry were from her grandmother's old jewelry, so it was special for her to wear and have as a keepsake.
But, I do have some of my own pictures to post of the jewelry pieces. These were made to match an olive colored dress. Each dress was different so I tried to match the dress, as well as each girls' personality. The first necklace is the bride's necklace, and then the ones that follow are the bridesmaids. Let me know what you think at email@example.com!
