More Wedding Jewelry for Beach Brides

Since my last post I have had a few more wedding orders, so I decided to put together a few attendant jewelry sets. I was married in Key West and I love the idea of a beach wedding! Like your bridesmaids, each necklace is one of a kind! Other quantities or color sets are available!

Sea Glass Wedding Jewelry

A few weeks ago I received an email from a bride who was looking for some sea glass jewelry to give as gifts to her bridesmaids. She was having a destination beach wedding and looking for a variety of greens and blues.

I photographed a pinwheel of sea glass pendants, similar to this, and we discussed them as though they were numbers on a clock. She picked the ones she liked and I replaced others until we had a nice selection of sea glass for the wedding. This was our second-to-last set. There is one more that was not in this photograph.
It was challenging to find 12 pieces that were reasonably similar in shape, size, color, thickness and that were smooth enough to be jewelry quality. I had to dig deep in my collection, then my mother's collection, and then my father and step mother's collection.
I wrapped them in the same gauge of wire and finished each pendant with a single Swarovski crystal. It is a little nerve wracking to create jewelry for somebody's wedding, but they were happy with the results...
I am planning to add more bridal jewelry and accessories to my Etsy shop for the spring, however custom orders are always welcome!
