Wedding dress jewellery and flower cufflinks

I made a blog post recently about preserving wedding flowers into jeweller and other gifts. This was a result of a wedding flower I was asked to preserve within a paperweight. Following on from that blog I have been asked to make a few other wedding and flower related items of jewellery so thought I would show them off.

Wedding dress pendants

Firstly I received some beautiful wedding dress lace material and was asked to encase it within pendants and earrings for the bride and her guests. The red lace material was beautiful, really vibrant and great to work with. The bride wanted all the pendants to be oval in shape and a matching set of earrings. Luckily I was able to use some of the whole flowers from the material and they were a perfect fit for the pendants.

 ...and using the smaller flowers for the earrings, the smaller flowers were again a perfect fit for the size of the oval earrings I made.

Real flower cufflinks

This was a different custom order but still flower themed. The flower petals that I received were taken from a rose that was used for a proposal 21 years ago. For the first set of cufflinks I created miniature petals and set them within sterling silver cufflinks.

And for the second set of cufflinks I used some broken fragments of the petals and created a nice effect.

The couple were celebrating 21 years since he proposed to her this week and these cufflinks were being given to the gentleman as a lovely gift.
