winter wedding

March 15, 2010 – 12:00 am

Ashleigh and John got hitched last month. I not only had the pleasure to be there and share their special day with them, I also made all the jewelry that was fashioned by the bridesmaids.

Wedding Style Sheet

Ashleigh wore her grandmother’s 3-strand pearl necklace along with matching pearl earrings and bracelet for an elegant look; for her 8 bridesmaids, she decided to go with bold color accessories to offset the simple pewter halter dress. Based on the color palette she had chosen for her wedding, we settled on the mixed dots bracelet, round ruffles earrings and the star flower ring. In true ZN fashion, the bracelets and earrings were reversible crafted with the wedding colors on one side and personalized on the reverse side for each bridesmaid.

I think it turned out great! What do you think? More images available on the ZN Facebook page.

Special thanks to Ashleigh for letting me showcase pictures from her wedding!

A fresh batch of reversible enamel goodies was delivered to Hazel mid last week. If you’re in the Chicago area, stop by Hazel to check out the ZN pieces in person. Located in the Chicago Ravenswood neighborhood, Hazel is stocked with items from fashion accessories, housewares to baby gifts and is one of my absolute favorite places to shop in the area. Somehow I always end up picking up a gift for myself when I visit.

So what are you waiting for? Head on over now!
