Carolyn Wensink married Craig Marchant on the 18th February 2012 in Canada. Carolyn lives in Cardiff so her Guernsey based sister Emily approached me to create jewellery for her sister and her four bridesmaids.
Carolyn’s theme was snowflakes so Emily and I knew straight away that the bridesmaid jewellery, whatever design, had to include a snowflake of some sort. I sourced silver diamanté snowflake charms for Carolyn’s necklace and matching bracelet and smaller simple snowflake charms for the bridesmaid bracelets.
I have made designs similar to these before but never used a snowflake charm for bridesmaid bracelets so it made a nice change and really suits a Canadian wedding.
It was quite different making bridal jewellery for someone I had never met so Emily had to liaise with her sister Carolyn about her requirements and then relate this back to me. It was lovely to know that Carolyn trusted Emily’s judgement and that she also was happy to commission me and not someone local to herself. I was therefore delighted to make Carolyn a matching bridal bracelet and necklace with a snowflake theme and a co-ordinating headpiece and pair of earrings.
We wanted the jewellery to make quite a statement as Carolyn likes chunky jewellery so we opted for a two stranded bracelet using 10mm Swarovski Crystal Creamrose pearls and a diamanté snowflake charm.
Carolyn also wanted a chunky necklace to match so we used 12mm Swarovski Crystal Creamrose pearls and a diamanté snowflake charm:
To keep the theme throughout her wedding accessories, Carolyn chose to also commission a co-ordinating bridal headpiece which would add a touch of sparkle to her hair style on the day.
I really enjoyed working on this order because it was my first winter wedding design and I loved the chunkiness of the bridal jewellery. Here are some pictures from the big day:
All that’s left to say is congratulations to Mr and Mrs Marchant on their marriage and I wish them all the best for the future.
Hope you have enjoyed viewing these designs and I would be happy to hear any comments.
