Somewhere...somehow in the week before the wedding, I managed to find time to comprise this necklace from beads and findings I already had on hand. Not bad for last minute preparations. I wore this with an iris purple dress coupled with a silver shrug. I think the filigree findings would also lend themselves nicely to casual wear.
Our daughter got married this past weekend! It was a festive celebration bedecked in jewel tones and full of non-traditional fun! She chose jewel-tone colors for her bridesmaids dresses accompanied with silver-glitter tennis shoes. The groomsmen wore black pants and shirts with silver vests and black Converse star tennis shoes. It was beautiful and just what she wanted! Her beauty radiated as she enchanted us all with her gorgeous gown, an off-the-shoulder A-line with a side draped bodice. She also wore silver-glitter tennis shoes with the words "I DO" spelled out on the bottoms in crystals. :)
She had asked that I make jewelry sets for the bridesmaids and for her! I was elated!! I knew it had to be simple as she is no bigger than a minute and anything lavish would quickly overwhelm her small frame. Together we brain-stormed, and finally this is what she chose. She chose it for it's simple elegance, as well as, the smallest hint of vintage. Everything looked spectacular!
All in all, it was a wonderful celebration!! We are so proud of her and feel completely blessed to have a wonderful, Spirit-filled man as the husband to our sweet daughter.
I'm happily married to the man of my life, and am honored to be able to step aside from my career of 17 years to be the best mommy I can to our two yummy little boys! They are just SO dear! We also have two wonderful adult children who are now footloose and fancy-free. It is satisfying knowing that they are responsible, respectable, and productive members of society.
