inspiration thursday: pineapples

so I'm having a pineapple moment...

I'm not so much interested in eating them as I am looking at them. there is something about the juxtaposition of the green leaves and the scaled base that is just so pretty. here are some images that I'm getting inspiration from this week:

wedding wednesday: custom bridesmaid necklaces

random fun fact about me: I own every martha stewart weddings magazine published since 1999 {I was 14 in 1999...}.

so now that you know that, it won't come as a huge surprise that I love designing jewelry for weddings. I have made necklaces and earring sets for mothers of the bride, necklaces for brides, a headpiece for a bride, and necklaces and earrings for bridesmaids. 

last year I had a bride reach out to me with her wedding colors (red and tiffany blue) and ask me to customize my ribbon necklaces to fit the theme of her wedding. I was super excited to put this together and we worked on design ideas and came up with bridesmaid necklaces that we were both super excited by (see final design below):

I then decided to make this process more accessible for other customers. so I now have many more ribbon color options on my site and a note that you can email me if you need a more specific color {}...more exciting news? I have a sliding scale discount based on the number of necklaces you purchase. so more bridesmaids=more savings. 

here are some of the styles you get to choose from {the natalie, the shira, and the samantha} and some color options are get designing!!
