Every bride-to-be understands the challenges of planning a wedding: attending to every detail without losing sight of the big picture; managing a tight budget while creating an elegant and memorable event.

Finding affordable, tasteful bridal jewelry and gifts for bridal attendants is difficult. For this special event, I collaborate with brides to create custom designs – necklaces, bracelets, and/or earrings – that complement her gown and the dresses of her bridesmaids and flower girls. Custom jewelry for mothers of the bride and groom is also a special way to commemorate the day.

I begin my work with brides through an initial conversation about their specific needs, budgets, and timeframes. Sometimes the scope of my involvement entails simply reworking one of my existing jewelry designs and integrating stones or pearls that coordinate with dresses and flowers. In other instances, I may remake an heirloom piece to add personal flair, but maintain its heritage. Some brides prefer to present me with a design entirely of their own that simply requires executing. Others prefer to work with me to create unique pieces that suit the mood and look of the event.

I try to keep turn-around time to a minimum and respect the need to work within all budgets. In most instances, I recommend that brides start the design process with me at least six weeks in advance, but I have also worked with brides in a pinch and turned things around in under a week!
