Nicole is an incredibly creative person and bride, and there were unbelievable hand-made details and DIY décor throughout her wedding. We were honored when she asked us to contribute to her day by making her a bracelet and earrings, as well as jewelry for her bridesmaids, mother and grandmother. She gave us some of her grandmother’s pearls and crystals to remix and incorporate into the jewelry for a mix of something old and something new.
Nicole: We took off-round, cream-colored pearls from a necklace of her grandmother’s and designed a pair of drop cluster earrings and a multi-strand pearl bracelet to go with the glamorous dress she commissioned using lace from her grandmother’s wedding dress.
Nicole’s bridesmaids: We selected a common stone to use throughout (amethyst teardrops to make a statement against the champagne-colored dresses and to complement the deep purple-colored bouquets) and we gave the bridesmaids their choice of a necklace or earrings. Some girls gave their own creative input to ensure they would love the jewelry and keep wearing it after the wedding.
Nicole’s mother: We designed double tier drop earrings using smoky quartz and garnet teardrops to go with her beautiful berry-hued dress. She looked stunning and sophisticated on her daughter’s day.
Nicole’s grandmother: We made cluster clip-on earrings, using the family pearls and crystals, which were designed to complement the jeweled buckle detailing on her wedding suit. We also mixed and restrung some of the pearls for a double strand pearl necklace.
