Custom Art Deco Wedding Jewelry

Last week I finished creating a custom wedding design order.  The wedding will have an art deco theme, so the bride needed bridesmaid jewelry with an art deco flair.  She has chosen green and dark purple as her colors - the bridesmaids will be wearing dresses in a beautiful green color called "clover" and will be wearing bronze colored shoes.  She wanted something in ivory and purple to compliment the dresses and shoes.

The final version turned out truly spectacular!  We used cream colored Swarovski crystal pearls, small amethyst colored Swarovski crystals, and antiqued brass metal components.

Necklace is beaded with pearls in a combination of round and baroque to add an art deco feel to the design.  The beaded links are securely wire-wrapped using antiqued brass wire.  Antiqued brass and gold bead caps complete the vintage art deco look.  Finished with antiqued brass curb chain and lobster claw clasp with extender chain.

Earrings are beaded using round Swarovski crystal pearls, amethyst Swarovski crystals, antique gold bead caps and antique brass ear wires.

Thank you Melanie for allowing me to create these pieces for your wedding!
