Bridal Accessories and Something Blue.....Moonstone Teardrops

Have the dress? You put it on and hmmmm, somethings not quite right...somethings missing??  You are a bit worried because you have this gorgeous strapless...but maybe you feel a bit to bare for inside the chapel for the ceremony?  A shawl? A shrug?  How about a bolero??   This ruffled collared bolero may be just the ticket! Just enough to cover your shoulders and still add a little flare of elegance...

Want to spruce up a simple dress??  How about a simple sash!  Flowers are always happy and so feminine...and if you are a pansy lover then this one may just be for you!  If you have a favorite flower and can't seem to find the right color combo or the perfect sash...feel free to contact me in the comments and we can figure out the perfect combo.

One of my brides is putting together an ensemble similiar to the one above..the bridal dress of Nicole if your not into flowers but you want to change the look a about this cumberbund style removable sash?  Ruched silk dupioni with hidden back zipper with covered buttons. Can also be made in different colors to spruce up an evening gown as me for more options

In need of a bit of Something Blue?  This gorgeous combo of Blue Lace Agates, Moonstone tears, blue flash Labradorite, pearls, and Mother of Pearl are all wire crocheted together.  Over 50 stones!  Definately an unforgetable peice for a memorable day.

These remind me of something Princess Diana would have worn...the royal blue mixed with moonstones.  Well I'm sure hers would have been blue saphires and diamonds!  but this definately is a beautiful combo.  Dozens of blue flash faceted moonstone teardrops cascade around a large blue glass rondelled with little moonstone charms...

Pure and simple...can never go wrong with pearls...these small coin pearls with aqua faceted chalcedony tears with mother of pearl and aquamarine charm clusters.  Perfect for the beach bride. With a bit of a vintage appeal.

Simple and elegant....again that royal blue is stunning!  The aquamarine brings out the blue flash in the moonstone charms...

Now one of my favorites...reminds me of Kauai, with the blue wave mixed with keishi pearl.  Over 50 stones, pearls, crystals, glass and mother of pearl all wire crocheted with faint pink wire, with sea green ribbon ties in the back.  A must have for a coast loving bride...So just a few suggestions and idea to complete your special day...for more ideas feel free to contact me or if you have an idea that you need to complete just ask!

This dress I made for a girl that got married at the end of the pier on Turks and Caicos....5 layers of different types of silk and beautiful for a beach side bride...and here's the dresses we made for the girls...we just happened upon this fabric the day we were purchasing the fabric for the gown...and we were so excited by the colors and huge butterflies!

Aren't they fun!!!!   Okay that was my little show and tell for the day :)  Have fun planning!
