I partly made up a few designs so that she could decide what sort of thing she wanted. Mostly they were too strong in colour and drew too much attention away from the dress, I thought.
We decided on a minimalist design, including some of my favourite beads to use, crackle beads, shell and Swarovski crystals. Also some black beads to reflect the black bits in the pattern of the fabric and to blend with her black accessories.
She was very pleased with it. I have suggested that she wears it a few times before the big day so that I will have time to fix it if it falls apart - always a worry !!
Detail of the heart pendant. My colleague doesn't usually go in for too much glitter or soppy hearts but she felt it was ok to have one at her son's wedding !!
