Voila! Wedding Necklace Designs Complete!

Finally! Today I can share photos of the finished bride's necklace I created for my daughter, Betsy.  First, though, take a look at the necklace in progress.  These are individual photos of each of the five strands that make up the bride's necklace:






As with the bridesmaids' necklaces, each strand is crocheted using a different type of fiber or wire, and different types of beads, arranged in unique patterns, are featured in each piece.  Swarovski crystals provide sparkle.   Below is a photo of the five strands laid together.


Betsy came over to look at the finished strands.  I was so relieved -- she loved them!  So now I've added the findings and completed the necklace.  Voila!  The finished piece:

Betsy's Wedding Necklace


In last Friday's post, I featured photos of the strands from the bridesmaids' necklaces.  Here is a photo of a completed bridesmaid necklace.

These necklaces are both based on my "weedy" necklace designs, some of which are featured in my ArtFire Studio and Shop.  Many of the designs in my shop can be customized for weddings -- changing colors, types of beads and fibers, types of clasps --  to suit the vision of the bride for the look she wants to create.  I'm happy to accept custom orders, and based on detailed discussions of what you'd like, provide samples of materials and design ideas to ensure your vision is accomplished.
