We love making jewelry for the brides in our family....I made the Princess Bride convertible style with the engraved charms for my niece, Andrea, last November.
June has classically been the month for brides, so the B'sue Boutiques Design Team thought, why not focus on brides...and maybe, too, go back down Memory Lane a bit and think about when WE were brides....or about a wedding we attended and loved....or a special bride in our family. Or, how would we feel if we were a bride again?
And then....translate that into a piece of jewelry to share with the group.
Here are a few styles that would work for you, with a little 'tailoring'....just suggestions!
Or you could think, beach wedding!
Pearls always work for bridal looks, but you could combine with mulberry flowers, ribbon and cold-enameled brass charms:
Or....you could go straight over the top with a "Let Them Eat Cake" piece:
Assemblage, beading, metalwork, polymer clay....whatever trips your trigger is fine. We do need you to use a visible focal from B'sue Boutiques in your design so that your piece can be promoted on our challenge board and be entered to win the 25.00 gift certificate.
Suggested bits to use might be brass flowers and roses:
Cameos are good, too!
You can make a simple piece, like a corsage bracelet and earrings:
Pastel colors and crystal, pearls, old gold, brass, vintage style components or Silverware Silverplate stampings are all viable ideas.
Come and join us at the B'sue Boutiques Creative Group and jump into the challenge. What sort of jewelry would YOU make ....if YOU were a bride.
Have fun with it!
