Real Bride Spotlight
Leanne was looking for romantic, vintage-inspired bridal jewelry for her lace v-neck gown. Her wedding colors of marsala, mauve and gold created a beautiful modern twist on a vintage theme.
Leanne wanted a Victorian vintage-style hair comb, a pearl and crystal statement necklace, and coordinating earrings. These all needed to match her lace gown and the theme of her wedding.
We started with the most important piece, the necklace. The design of this would determine the rest of the jewelry.
Leanne’s dress is a lovely lace v-neck with no beading. The v-neckline is perfect for a drop style necklace, so I suggested something that would highlight that “V” shape. She liked the look of a three strand necklace I had showed her, and from there we created this beauty!
The necklace is made from cultured freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and gold plated chain. The golden crystals used instead of clear crystals added to the vintage effect. They blend into the gold chain giving a subtle sparkle.
We continued using the gold for the earrings. These earrings are actually two pairs in one! The bottom golden teardrops can detach from the top so Leanne can wear the top teardrops by themselves. Imagine how many times she could wear those after the wedding!
Leanne’s comb was so fun to create. I get a basic idea of the design during the consultation, and then I work on it until I am happy with the outcome. Once I am happy, I make sure the bride is too! She wanted the comb to be very vintage, so we added gold metal filigree pieces, pearls, and the same golden crystals. It looked amazing in her hair!
