April brought more requests for bespoke bridal accessories then ever before so I’ve been working closely with a lot of brides. One bride in particular, wanted to keep the same design of the Crystal Sparkle Tiara, the Woven Swarovski Crystal Wedding Bracelet and the Emma Crystal Wedding Earrings but wanted them mainly in clear with a few clear AB crystals incorporated in to give extra sparkle but without being over the top. The difference between the clear and clear AB Swarovski crystals is that the clear AB have a coating on them which reflects a rainbow of colours and increases the sparkle. Many brides love these while others prefer to tone down the sparkle by using the Clear crystal. I’m often asked which is better but it’s down to personal preference and the crystals should match any that you have in you other wedding jewellery or on your wedding dress. I’ve posted an image of all the bespoke bridal accessories that she bought.
The clear AB crystals aren’t so obvious in this photo but that’s what the bride wanted, just a smattering to increase the sparkle, they are mainly focused around the bottom of the tiara, the middle of the bracelet and the larger crystals on the earrings.
I’m also waiting on specialist Swarovski crystals from the States to create a matching bracelet and earrings for a bride who is wearing her fiance’s grandmothers crystal necklace as part of her wedding jewellery, so I’ll post a photo once the crystals have arrived. I thought it was a very nice touch to wear her fiance’s family’s heirloom and I’m sure it will help to make them feel like his grandmother is still with them on their wedding day.
Another bride wanted to incorporate two different hair vines and make it longer as she wanted to wrap it into her hair in a particular way. At the moment I’m waiting on diamante flowers from China, so again I’ll post a picture once that’s made.
I think one of the reasons I love making bespoke bridal accessories is that it provides me with a new challenge and enables me to design something new with a particular person in mind, so if you are looking bridal accessories that will be unique to you, why don’t you email me and see what can be created for your budget.
