Floral Fashionista Friday Presents: Tissage Jewelry Inspiration
Friday, July 17, 2009
I love jewelry without a doubt. I love renaissance people without out a doubt. Those people who are so creative they can't contain themselves to one art form; they have to dabble in many creative pursuits because if they did not they would risk implosion! So, when I came across Tory over at Tissage...
I recognized a kindred spirit. I loved her jewelry
instantly; a little bit bohemian , a little bit vintage a whole lot of glam chic!
I've put these earrings on my birthday wish list. Hello! They are purple!
I thought they would be so beautiful for the bride.
Also, so perfect for bridesmaids gifts.
I love this bracelet!
Are you bold?
Not only does Tory make jewelry she makes hats
too! So perfect for the vintage bride.
Perhaps, with these earrings...
...or this necklace.
I love the style of these earrings so perfect for a beach wedding.
Ooh la la! I just love Tissage
! So perfect for brides, bridesmaids, weddings and just about anything. Affordable too.Tissage
is based out of Seattle. Tory loves custom work so don't be afraid to contact her with your request. Check out her shop there are so many beautiful pieces there. I personally can't wait for my birthday and those purple earrings!

Jewelry Inspiration: Swept From the Sea
Thursday, April 23, 2009
Swept from the Sea
is a local jewelry designer based right here in Victoria, B.C. Yeah! Cheri creates her designs from recycled beach glass found right on our very own beaches and sterling silver. We think her pieces are great for a beach themed wedding and would make lovely gifts for your female attendants. Please check out her shop. She has just had a big Earth Day Sale but am sure she will replenish her shop shortly, so check back.
These are my absolute favorite...flowers and beach glass! Perfect for bride or bridesmaid.
Such great jewelry sets for the bride! Very reasonably priced!
A junior bridesmaid or flower girl would love this silver anklet. She has a mermaid one too.Swept From the Sea
such a great business name and we think would make a lovely wedding theme. Think pale aqua, green, or sand coloured bridesmaids dresses, beach venue, bouquets embellished with shells and pearls, flip flops for shoes, seashell embossed cake, seafood appetizers and of course wedding jewelry from Swept from the Sea

Jewelry to Inspire
Wednesday, April 15, 2009
It is very rare that I see something that makes my heart skip a beat due to it's incredible beauty, but this custom made jewelry by Wearable by Design
did just that. It is so incredibly stunning, creative and evocative.It goes beyond typical jewelry and becomes an art piece, a family heirloom to be passed down from generation to generation. This jewelry is designed by Jennifer Smith-Righter from Redwood City, California.She designs in silver and semi-precious gems often inspired by nature or mechanical objects.Quite often each individual component of a piece is made by hand to create the whole.She sometimes uses old world techniques like the lost wax process. To me these pieces are incredible pieces of art at an affordable price for custom jewelry. I absolutely love them and hope you do to. Please check out her shop.
First, let me say I am not a huge fan of costume jewelry and especially not on your wedding day.I really feel that a bride should invest in a piece that she is going to love,that she is going to wear and remember her wedding day and how beautiful she felt, that she will pass down to her sons and daughters and that they will pass on and so on. I realize not everyone can afford custom jewelry but even a pair of earrings or bracelet that is an heirloom can create the same effect.I really feel that it would be so special to have your groom, mother or father present you with something so lovely as a custom piece of jewelry for your wedding day to wear at your wedding.I think this tradition is lost and is replaced with gift certificates,toasters and cappuccino makers.
How lovely are these earrings for a bride? Completely customizable with different beads.
This necklace is called "Scarlett Ophelia" and it actually made me swoon.I seriously want to change my name to" Scarlett Ophelia"or at least start up an all girl band called this....but I digress! Is it not beautiful! I love it!
This piece has such a vintage feel to it.
The Oak Leaf necklace.Each leaf is individually made so no two are alike.
Are you swooning yet?
Save the bees!
How dainty and delicate; perfect for the not so flashy bride or bridesmaid.
Please reconsider your wedding jewelry.Rhinestones, pearls, silver or gold ....just choose a piece you love. You are worth it!
Please check out Jennifer's
shop Wearable by Design
. I couldn't post everything even though I wanted to....her mechanical designs are works of art too!
