Wedding Wear

If you've been watching the Etsy front page or reading The Storque articles lately, it's a sure thing you've noticed that there's a lot of talk about weddings. Every bride wants something special to wear on her special day, and many members of the Etsy BeadWeavers group have unique and original creations that a bride could cherish for a lifetime.
Leslie Rogalski had a beautiful anemone bracelet featured in this treasury that appeared on Etsy's front page today:

  5. Very pretty! I love this idea. Now how can we get the old rhyme changed to "Something old, something new, something beaded, something blue"?

  6. I've had inquiries for matching beadwoven cuffs for bridesmaids. How cool would that be!?

  7. This is a really good idea - especially for this time of year. I had no idea of what was considered "wedding" jewelry - I do now. I also know what to do with the left over white seed beads and pearls I have from my Stormy Weather challenge.

  8. I may do a couple more wedding-type pieces in the next month or two... I never really thought about it. You guys are so clever.
    I learn something new everyday.

  9. Fantastic post - thanks for putting this up!
    I've been making wedding earrings today (to match a collar that I sold recently) and love the thought that somebody's going to be wearing my work on her special day. Isn't it great that we have so many alternatives to 'just' white?

  12. This is so cool! I love the way you provided a link back to Etsy that pulls up EBW's wedding listings. It's like an "EBW Gift Guide" via the blog. Thank you, thank you!

  13. I enjoy the quick thinking of the Beadweavers (EBW) blog.

    This is a beautiful treasury and certainly has me thinking. And to realize that weddings are of all colors and tastes make for more creative pallete and materials.

    Handmade is the only way to go!!!

  15. Wonderful post! I've been toying with the idea of doing a few of my "signature" pieces in wedding colors/materials. This is what I needed to give me the push in the right direction.

  20. I truly forgot that we are moving into the wedding season. I have sold a few pieces in the past for bridesmaids' gifts. It is easy to custom make five pieces that are identical or a little longer or shorter if desired. Thanks for the wonderful reminder. Lin

  22. Beautiful, and THANK you so much for including some of my work. I enjoy the thought of someone buying something from my shop for their wedding/bridal or honeymoon. It would be very exciting.

    Hope to have more options available in my shop as these next few weeks go by.
