Project Description:

Have you ever had the pleasure for designing for a bridal party? Well for those that have you know what a challenge it may be, do I make earrings and a necklace or just a bracelet. Well of course it all depends on the dress. In my project the dress has as a beautiful black lace yoke and is in the color of the year Radiant Orchid, so I chose to make a stunning statement piece bracelet. I used connectors that mimic the look of the lace yoke, added some mystic black Swarovski pearls and a dash of Chinese Crystal sparkle.
