I've finished and photographed this commissioned wedding jewellery set for Lucy. I wanted to create a set that wasn't too matching but the different pieces all had a similar style whilst all still could work separately. The set includes: an illusion necklace with pearls and Swarovski crystals, beaded Swarovski crystal earrings and a trilogy* bracelet with pearls and crystals in burnt oranges.

The brief for the necklace was for an illusion style necklace using crystals. I discussed this with Lucy as I felt that this could be quite harsh psychically on neck skin which can be very sensitive. I have instead made the necklace in ivory glass pearls, round and some small bicone crystal beads. Here is the final look which I think is beautiful.

The concept for the earrings was for something sparkly and sophisticated. The shape of the beaded crystal beads mirrors the round crystals in the necklace and bracelet
Simple formed bead on a silver chain adds drama and movement whilst still looking subtle

The *Trilogy bracelet was my idea to create something special for the day, which can also be worn in different ways after the event. The 3 separate bracelets are to symbolise the couples life before their wedding day, the day itself and their future lives together. The bracelets that I've made for Lucy are is ivory pearls, burnt orange crystals (the colour theme for the wedding) and also in Clear AB crystals. The bracelets are connected together with a small linking chain that includes a blue heart bead to give the bride her 'something blue'

I hope that the bride is as happy as I am with the finished look x
