EDIT: to add the final bridal jewellery and the test necklaces...
Note: somehow this topic got doubled, and I've asked the other one to be deleted, so I apologise to those of you who commented there...it was nothing personal...promise!
A while ago a friend asked me to make her wedding jewellery for her - originally she wanted biiiiiig red pearls on a choker, but then she decided on small grey freshwater pearls. I still ended up making the bridesmaids jewellery from the big pearls, and she also got a bracelet and choker made from them.
Sorry about the shadows, I'll have to take a new pic now that I have it back.
Strangely after spending quite a few hours on the grey necklace, the bride figured out it didn't go with the dress, and I ended up making another one. Luckily she's a good friend or I probably would have told her off a bit.
The bridesmaids jewellery:
but long story short this started a pearl spree and I've been making glass pearl bracelets like mad...maybe I should stop...or maybe not. Still have lots of pearls to use! And there was one necklace and bracelet set that was taken as soon as it was done.
All the bracelets:
Hope you like them - and btw, the purple is actually grey but for some reason it's all wonky in the photos....
This is the final necklace the bride wore - much simpler in design and much more understated as you can see.

And these were the testruns - pardon the onde dodge photo..it was late and b/f was feeling neglected so it was a bit rushed .
