Adorable Fairy Gnomes Made with Glass Doll Eyes

People are making amazing things with the glass eyes from Megan's Beaded Designs!

Yvonne Arasmith, from Washington state, created this adorable set of garden fairy gnomes for her son and future daughter-in-law for a wedding gift.

She used the dazzling glass doll eyes from Megan's Beaded Designs to give life to her polymer clay creations.

Custom Bridal Party Jewelry Makes for a More Special Occasion

  • May 6 2015

One of the significant ways you can make your wedding more original and more YOU is through the wedding jewelry you choose for yourself and your bridal party. Unique, custom jewelry for each member of your bridal party will make their pieces a gift that is more special than any basic, run-of-the-mill set of jewelry you can get from a manufactured retail outlet, and will leave them all with something they can wear every day to remind them of what a great day your wedding was. (No matter how basic you opt for their bridal party dresses to be, no article of clothing will ever have this same ability.)

When choosing your bridal party jewelry, opt for pieces that fit with your overall wedding’s theme, the style of your bridesmaids’ dresses, and of course, their own personal jewelry style.

Beaded Choker

(For example, you wouldn’t want to make them all wear chokers if most of your ladies can’t stand to have anything that close to their neck.)

You may also want to consider your own wedding jewelry, and how well theirs will compliment your own. It is always a nice overall look for photographs if they were a colored, subtle version of your own extravagant bridal jewelry set.

A custom-made artisan jewelry set always makes a lovely gift, and will be an especially touching custom when given to the members of your bridal party.

Ideas for Making Your Wedding More YOU

  • Apr 27 2015

Wedding Ideas

Wedding season has begun and it’s already in full swing. Along with celebrating my own wedding anniversary of 4 years and counting, I’ve been attending ceremonies for newlyweds every weekend so far this month. It’s amazing how once you reach a certain age (mid-to-late-twenties, for me), everyone seems to be getting’ married and havin’ babies!

It must be spring!

With each wedding I attend it’s amazing to me all of the brilliant and original ideas people come up with. Even though there are hundreds of thousands of weddings happening every day of the year, there are plenty of ways to add your own personal touches to your ceremony and reception to make it uniquely your own.

For example, instead of serving cake (or even cupcakes) you could go more original and serve miniature pies, cookies, or doughnuts! (I have yet to see dessert crepes served at a wedding, but wouldn’t that be awesome!?) Table centerpieces, guest souvenirs, and the accessories of you and your wedding party are all additional ways you can add your own personal flair to the overall event.

For a friend’s Alice in Wonderland themed wedding, we served hot and cold tea beverages at ever table, with adorable “Eat Me” sugar cookies served with dinner.

I also created the custom jewelry for the bridal party, which included a timepiece necklace for each bridesmaid reflective of the perpetually late rabbit from the original story. It was such a fun collection to design, and it turned out to be a hit for everyone who attended!

Custom

Another uncommon thing you can do, especially if you are having you wedding outside on a warm summer day, is ditch your shoes! Yes, really! Don’t even bother bringing ‘em!

Instead of uncomfortable heels that will have your feet screaming in pain by the end of the evening, why not feel the cool grass or sand beneath your toes with a pair of barefoot sandals? Perfect for a destination beach wedding!
