Oh, is it wedding season?!

Lia's Bouquet.jpgThe folks at Etsy reminded me it’s wedding season!  While my appreciation of weddings is primarily relegated to drooling over bouquets, head-pieces and gowns, I did remember serving as a bridesmaid in several friends’, then my sister’s, wedding.  I got my dress together, my shoes, my makeup, my hair, and then, despite being a jeweler, found I had no clue whatsoever what jewelry to wear.
The weddings were all fairly traditional, with bridesmaids in similar, if not identical dresses, and I wondered if I’d blow up the whole cabal with some off-kilter embellishment.  And if you’re thinking, why worry about such a thing?  I hand you the following anecdote.my hairdo and fascinator at Glo's wedding
Standing in the chapel doorway at my best-friend’s wedding, I went to take the arm of my assigned groomsman, a gentleman I had just met, before we walked down the aisle.  I was wearing the pre-selected bridesmaid uniform, marcasite post earrings and a feather fascinator.  He leaned over to me and whispered, “Now, we don’t want to take any attention away from the bride, now do we?”  Ahem!  So, people notice these things!
Accessory-shaming aside, I thought, there should be tasteful, customizable jewelry pieces available, preferably that a bride can select and purchase for her bridal party, that she could match to their dresses.  The bridesmaid would’t have to worry about selecting appropriate jewelry for the occasion, and the jewelry would double as a gift from bride to bridesmaids as a thank you for supporting her on her special day.Set of gold drop earrings main
I have just listed a set of gold and semi-precious gemstone drop earrings in my Hieropice on Etsy shop, customizable, of course, for exactly this purpose.  Earrings are available in turquoise, lapis lazuli, coral, and malachite, and other colors are available upon request.  The set comes with four pairs, but more, or fewer, are also available.  Happy wedding season, everyone!
