Bridesmaid Jewelry!

Hello friends!

So if you remember my post from the other day I was talking about finishing my jewelry for the wedding. I decided last minute to put together some beads and jewelry for my dress. 
Here is my dress! Perfect huh? Nice and BRIGHT! None of the wedding party will be matching so we just had to get a cute sun dress. This dress is not only pretty, but it flatters my body shape so much! It feels like the dress was tailored to me specifically :D It's such a nice feeling to put something on and feel gorgeous in it!

So the other day during my amazing lampworking session(one of those days where you are just amazed at your artistic skill) I whipped up these flower beads to match my dress. They flowers on the dress are pretty free form so I made this big disc, creased some petal shapes and then pressed across the length of the flower to give it a petaly feel.

I, for once in my life, decided to do something really simple. I grabbed some sari silk, leather and wire and quickly assembled this piece! It looks fantastic with the dress! Just perfect enough to catch your eye, but also blend beautifully!

Here is the jewelry worn :D

I'll post some wedding photos after this weekend! 

Have a great weekend and see you soon!

You are going to be a knock out in your dress and jewelry. The dress and jewelry are very very pretty.

This looks absolutely LOVELY! I love the way the beads look, and the "simple" route was the best one possible. I know exactly what you mean about keeping things simple-- I almost always end up taking the "tough" way or the longer way, myself. Once in a while, though, it's good to KISS-- or as my mom would say, Keep It Simple, Stupid :)

Just wanted to pop in to say how gorgeous the beads look, and how pretty your dress is. I'm looking forward to those photos! <3

Yeah, as simple as it is, I am really pleased with the results. I love that pop of the bright sari silk! I think I might to a quick tutorial on this simple design...
