Ispiration from snow to the sea

Walking into the Stash one day opened up another opportunity for us. Making custom pendants for Janie's daughters. We were asked to make Flower girl pendants to match the white delicate dresses they were to wear to a wedding. We took on the challenged and brainstormed what little girls can wear that they can still grow into and yet be dainty enough for a wedding.

We came up with snowballs beads. I was to turn these into pendants for 3 flower girls.

Here are the results. White beads with bumps embelished with Swarovski crystals, sterling silver heart charms and findings daitily hanging on a satin necklace.

The pendants were a hit!Janie was so kind to send pictures of the girls wearing it. It looked so dainty against the beautiful white dresses.

In the middle of creating these little snowball pendants...Bo made a set inspired by the ocean water that we miss so much. This turned into a sea life bracelet for a friend in California who loves the ocean and misses her trips to Hawaii.

Ocean Inspired Beads

Sea Life Bracelet

After sharing the pictures with family and friends I am now in the process of a custom order for one of my favorite cousins for another ocean inspired bracelet. Hers will depict the waters of Hawaii and so Bo took his inspiration from a shell we had at home and made her set. I am ordering her charms and will be putting the bracelet together for her soon. But I had to share the beads and the inspiration.

Fall has come in full swing here in Fairbanks and although I know what that means...I am enjoying the beautiful foliage that nature loves to share with us.

Have a great day!
