Weddingness (not mine)
I've had a slew of wedding jewelry orders lately . . . LOTS of fun, especially given that I'm planning my own wedding right now! I swear, if I didn't make jewelry Etsy would be the FIRST place I'd look for bridesmaid's gifts and favors (not that I have any bridesmaids, but still).
Last night I made five pearl chokers for a bridal party in Las Vegas and then a pair of sterling and freshwater pearl earrings for another bride. I listed them all this morning and my shop page looks like its covered in white buttercream frosting. Lovely!
And speaking of wedding jewelry . . . I made myself a little something ;) A pendant in sterling and marcasite with labradorite drops. I'm still mulling it over. For all the pearls I use in my shop I don't want to wear them to my wedding. So the pendant doesn't quite look bridal to me . . . but then I don't really want it to look bridal. Much to ponder. Maybe I should post a picture and let you guys help.
Blogplan for next week is to post pictures of what I wear to work every day. Clothes can be artsy-craftsy just as much as pearl necklaces and cupcakes can. I enjoy the heck out of getting dressed every morning, so I think I'll enjoy sharing too! Anyone want to join me?
