For the first time in my jewelry design career I have been exploring the muted colors of bridal adornments. I have been commissioned by several “brides to be” to create their adornments for those special wedding days. Each sister that has purchased a custom bridal adornment from me has challenged my creative abilities and the designs have been such fun for me to conceptualize and create.
I was accustomed to creating beadwork that was bright, colorful and passionate so it was a challenge when a bride in Australia asked me to design a pair of barefoot sandals in silver, cream and off white. I had to embrace the idea of creating more simple patterns with similar colors. My mind had to adjust to the idea that I could bring those colors together in a way that was pleasing to the eye as well as compliment the bride’s gown.
I learned that simple colors can be simply Stunning and all colors should be offered the opportunity to be a part of my beadery canvas. I also learned that each bride is unique with her own taste in color and style. It is a great pleasure to connect with a bride in a way that honors her as a unique Queen!
What a pleasure it is to be a part of a wedding that unites two loving beings. If only for a moment I imagine how a queen must feel upon the day of her wedding, the bride puts on her beautiful gown, her Earcuffs, Crown and her Barefoot sandals. While a bride is wearing my beadwork I feel that have played a special role as my creativity is love filled just like the love shared between two newlyweds; the beads are united in forming a union that can be cherished along with all of the special memories of the day.
I have also have had the honor of connecting and collaborating with Amazing designers such as Therez Fleetwood. I am very inspired by her creativity as well and feel a deep connection to her Ethnic inspired Wedding Gowns. My Earcuffs are pictured here with a gown by Therez Fleetwood.
If you or any sister you know is preparing for a Sacred Ceremony please contact me. It will be my pleasure to create adornments that will honor Queens all around the World!
