laced with love.

Here's a recent commission that I had a lot of fun with.  Two fantastic folks are tying the knot soon... and the bride wanted me to deck out her 6 bridesmaids in my custom neck-lace line.  I was delighted to create each one with a unique flair... that's the nature of this work - every single piece has it's own special organic form.

 I wanted to make the packaging for this order extra special too.  Each neck-lace was tucked into these sweet turquoise boxes, wrapped with a paper doily and strands of raffia, and adorned with a gentle feather.

The fun continued as the order increased... now two brace(lace)lets were needed for cousins in the wedding.  This was the first bracelet, featuring an opal disc that dangles from the flower.

The second bracelet features two little pearls budding from the leaf pattern.

I'm looking forward to seeing each lady/girl adorned in these custom creations.
(If I'm lucky I may even be able to post pictures of them in the next month!)

I wish this funky, fabulous couple a wonderful wedding!
Tying the knot
Sewing their souls
Wrapped with blue sky
Under a canopy of leaves
Toes tangled in grass and hay
May it be a beauty-full day for y'all.

Creatively yours,
Mel ;o)


  1. wow. really really beautiful!  I love how you put it all together!  Such sophistication in your style mama!  Sometimes I wish my craftiness wasn't so wacky.... *sigh*. though it's just like hair, if you have strait, you want curls, if you have curls, you want strait.  best to keep on keepin' on just as we are ;)
