More Bridal Bling

beadznbling.etsy.com

Another busy week with lots of new designs on the drawing board. I've been watching trendy wedding gown designers and keeping up with marthastewartweddings.com and happily they continue to show their collections with multi strand necklaces mostly of pearls. I knew I was on the right track this year when I started designing more nontraditional jewelry using a combination of pearl varieties and crystals. Some stunning things are happening this spring season yet I still continue to add traditional go-to pieces to the collection. Have a good weekend!

Bridal Bling

BeadznBling

This is the time of year that is so much fun for fashion, especially the bridal trends. I am a jewelry designer and try to mix things up by showing stylish classic designs but will also create very unique one of a kind show pieces for the bride's big day. Bling times ten.

My first design I wish to share today is my Dazzle triple strand freshwater pearl necklace. Stunning 19 inch ivory white triple strand of freshwater blister pearls, biwa stick pearls, potato pearls, gorgeous keishi pearls and faceted teardrop clear quartz crystals. Three strands twisted to create a gorgeous necklace for that special wedding day, business or after five. The necklace is finished with a very special sterling silver box clasp with round cabachon set rainbow moonstone, has safety bar catch. One of a kind and out of this world. This item was featured in a previous blog post as well.



Another favorite is my Something Blue design. For the bride or a be good to myself! Double Strand Necklace of lucious White Keishi Pearls and Crystal Clear Quartz Briolettes with a sterling silver blue opal box clasp (with safety bar catch). The shortest of the two strands is 16 inches. The individual keishi pearls 7x11mm in size and the briolettes are 6x10mm. Lovely necklace!



My next blog entry will be on more wedding bridal jewelry. In the meantime take a look at my other freshwater pearl designs at www.beadznbling.etsy.com.
