Wedding and Bridesmaid's Jewelry
It's that time of year.  Brides are working tirelessly to put the finishing touches on their perfect, fairy tale wedding. I just received my first order of the season.  There is just something so special knowing I am creating jewelry for a couple's happy day.

In my jewelry line I have earrings and necklaces that make perfect group gifts for all of your bridesmaids.  These fantastic women supported you and helped you prepare for your special day; return the  love and adorn them with handcrafted jewlery.  Below are earrings that make wonderful gifts for your bridesmaids. This style of earring can be created in nearly any color to coordinate with your wedding colors and/or dresses.   All jewelry can be made in either Sterling Silver or 14K Gold Filled.
