Everyone loves a good wedding and the all exciting build up! In July I got married and obviously made the jewellery for my bridesmaids, a wedding ring for Andy and I and a few bits for myself.
As my bridesmaids are all specials stars and their dresses were pink, I opted for small star pendants with sparkly pink Swarovski beads. One for my daughters, Tallulah and Connie and one for Erin my niece. http://insilver.co.uk/product/personalised-mini-star-pendant/
I wanted to make something personalised for myself and decided on a double fingerprint heart with my fingerprint and Andy's joining. I followed the traditional something old, something new and used a Swarovski Aquamarine bead for the something blue. Andy and I were both born in March, so the blue Aquamarine worked perfectly! I had the back engraved with 'Aimi & Andy. 14.7.17'. Our names are behind the relevant fingerprint.
As my wedding dress had lots of beaded detail at the front and a semi-open back, I chose to make use of the shape of the back of the dress and add the double fingerprint heart.
I was very keen to make the wedding rings and Andy and I both like silver rather than the traditional gold colour. As we both have practical jobs, we needed a strong metal so opted for 9ct white gold. We shared design ideas and eventually went with a double band, mine was a slinky version and Andy's was a wider version. I hadn't made anything in gold for a while and was reminded how much easier gold is to work with compared to silver.
Andy and I were really pleased with the end result and everyone comments on how lovely it is that I made our rings!
