Southern Wedding Featuring My Jewelry

Last year I made the necklaces and earrings for the bridesmaids for a wedding in Alabama. A couple of weeks ago, the lovely bride, Jenifer, contacted me to tell me that her wedding had been featured in Southern Weddings Magazine Blog. Take a look at the blog - the photos of the wedding are simply gorgeous!

These were the necklace and earrings that the bridesmaids wore.
