High school prom jewellery for our daughter

Wow I have just noticed it has been such a long time since I last blogged! Our daughter has her high school prom this Friday, something she and all her friends have been so looking forward to for the last year. She has spent many weeks preparing for it, including choosing dresses, hair styles, makeup and even transport to the prom. The prom is no doubt going to be a big memorable night in her life and whilst I cannot really help with the hair, makeup and dress side of things, I did offer to make her some jewellery.

Her prom dress is predominantly green however there are touches of pink on her shoes and hair piece. I wanted to make something fairly delicate to compliment her dress and pick up the colours of pink and silver. I decided to use the delicate lace flower throughout the jewellery and initially made her this sterling silver necklace incorporating the pink lace flower. I also engraved the back of this pendant with her name and the date of the Prom.

I also made this sterling silver bracelet, again incorporating the delicate pink lace flowers...

I showed the jewellery to her last night and I think she was quite pleased! My wife Angela also commented on the earrings and wanted a pair for herself; luckily I had made two pairs! I hope she has a great time at her prom and comes home with lots of happy memories.
