Pierrine’s First Wedding Commission

Pierrine has now several wedding clients for 2010 and I was delighted that a dear friend was Pierrine’s first wedding client. Last week saw the climax of several months work as I hand delivered the jewellery to the bride to be in the UK. What a service I offer! Well actually as she was my friend I was also invited to the wedding so got to see my jewellery in all its glory.

We had spent several months communicating via email as she lives in the UK and met twice face to face and the style of beads was new to me so this commission really opened up my eyes to new styles, experiences and most of all the reward for all the hard work – seeing the jewellery with the outfits on the big day and getting first hand feedback.

I therefore wanted to share with you these designs.

The wedding had an African Theme as the bride had previously lived there for a while and the colours of the wedding were rich and contrasting. The bride was in traditional cream and the bridesmaids were in burnt orange. The flowers were a mix of lime green, purple, orange and guinea fowl feathers. The bride had therefore asked for simple but elegant earrings for her and a chunky but stunning bracelet to match using freshwater pearls in various shapes:

The bride wanted the bridesmaids’ earrings and bracelets to contrast with their burnt orange dresses and reflect the guinea fowl colourings of peacock and silvers:

Bridesmaids’ Bracelet

Bridesmaids’ Earrings

The Mother of the Bride was wearing a mix of lime green, purples, pinks and white and therefore wanted something elegant and pretty to match. These earrings were a delicate addition to these colourings.

I learnt so much doing this commission and was honoured to be asked and be such a big part of my friend’s day. Wedding jewellery just finishes every outfit off and brings together the colours of a wedding.

I hope you like the designs and would be happy to hear any comments.
