For the Bride and Her Ladies

I try to keep a variety of jewelry in my shop to suit different styles and occasions. Some pieces are more appropriate for a night on the town, while others are better for work or a special occasion. Some are more versatile, dressing up a simple outfit or accenting something more elegant.

The Blog Carnival topic for the EtsyBloggers this month is weddings. I actually carry items in my shop that would be perfect for the bride's special day or as a gift to her bridesmaids. My crocheted pearl necklaces are popular for weddings. I don't mass produce them, but I do accept custom orders. It's helpful to me if you send me a picture of the color you are trying to match or a link to the beads you'd like me to purchase to use.

I offer a couple styles of crocheted pearl necklaces. My favorite style is the single crochet pearl necklace of either the same color pearl or of alternating colors. This works well with fresh water pearls or glass pearls.

Another style I can make is the single crochet strand that simulates a double stranded necklace. This requires two colors of pearls.

The third type is the braided crochet necklace. This uses only a few pearls and many tiny seed beads. It is similar to this necklace (without the starfish pendant).

Don't forget about jewelry for the bachelorette! I can make matching bracelets for the divas or a Bridezilla whistle lanyard.

Your work is beautiful. I've tried that crocheting thing, but wasn't too good at it. I guess I should try again.
