My Wedding Jewelry.

It's been one month since we were married in Maui. I cannot believe how fast the time passes. There we were standing on the beach without shoes in our formal clothing at sunset. A sailboat and mountain range behind us, the crashing of the Makena Beach waves...such beauty.

I wanted to share some pictures of the jewelry I wore. The first picture is a bracelet made with black Mother of Pearl and Black Onyx. I didn't wear this piece at the ceremony, but I wore it plenty during the honeymoon. The random black and white swirl of the beads has a lovely iridescent glow to them.

This next bracelet is made with vintage lace, gunmetal, and sterling silver. The toggle is a pretty good size with a heart-shaped filigree pattern...the perfect focal piece. It's really hard not to wear this piece or any of these others on a daily basis. It fits snugly on my wrist, and the chain has enough slack to move.

This extravagant choker features vintage black lace, gunmetal, Karen Hilltribe fine silver, and a very elegant dichroic glass pendant. I originally wanted a large rose focal to match the clasp, but I couldn't get one in time, and this heart pendant was right in plain sight the whole time!

These gunmetal filigree earrings feature black freshwater pearls, sterling silver, and Cubic Zirconia. They are very comfortable to wear, and this is my first pair of chandelier type earrings - so they're extra special. The hearts on the post earrings are large enough to be noticed and to catch the sunlight, and small enough to not distract from the filigree and chains. I really like the way these turned out, and I want to make a variation of these for sale sometime in the future.

This short necklace is made with black freshwater pearls and gunmetal. I wore this alongside my choker, and the lengths worked out perfectly. The heart pendant rested over the pearls, and they both sat tight, yet relaxed.

And yes...I wore a black dress to match!

In a future post I'll have to show off my black diamonds, and I have a story to tell about our trip to Jared's to get our rings engraved...it will open your eyes to the world of "professional" jeweler chains.

Thank you so much for reading.

Hey, I really love how you made your wedding jewelry, especially the choker. Would you ever be willing to recreate or sell that piece of jewelry?
