A month or so back, one of my coworkers asked if I could make her a bracelet and a set of earrings for her upcoming beach wedding in Mexico. I said sure, no big.
Okay. I said, “OMG SERIOUSLY ARE YOU CRAZY? ME? OKAY!!??!?!”
She wanted something dainty and beachy. OKAY!! I created five sample earrings and two small lengths of bracelets for her, and let her choose what she wanted. This is the finished product:
The pearls are crystal pearls, because real pearls are wickedly expensive and I am not a good knotter. There are also Swarovski pave beads and crystals, sterling silver starfish charms from Artbeads.com, and faceted crystal drop beads. The clasp and earring hooks are sterling silver as well. I had some beads left over, so I made the bracelet at the bottom right for her daughter, who was her flower girl. Those are crystal pearls and a starfish charm on stretch elastic. 🙂
Thanks, M, for letting me do this for you. Wishing you YEARS of happiness!!
