It seems forever ago that I blogged about my custom order for wedding party jewelry. Well, I can finally check that project off my list. The bride has been incredibly patient and the wedding isn't until this summer but it had still been hanging over my head and I really wanted to get them in the mail. I finished the bracelets but getting together with my friend to make the matching earrings was a challenge with the holidays and various illnesses the past few months. They were a very simple design so I probably could have done them myself but I wanted it to be perfect since they were for such an important event and I've never made earrings before.
We had a lovely day today of crafting and shopping and I can finally mark this off my list of things to do. I'm really happy with how they came out. I'm not as happy with the pictures but I'm not used to photographing jewelry so they will have to do. I also was trying to do them inside which is never good. I upgraded her earrings to sterling components and got her some really nice origami boxes at a paper store today to assuage my guilt at taking so long.
