A closer look at the inspiration behind the smallest new pair of stud earrings in my shop!
If this pair of earrings looks familiar, you may remember it from the custom bridal jewelry set I made for J’Adorn bride Jill!
The first time I made this pair of stud earrings it was part of a custom bridal jewelry set. My client Jill wanted a pair of small coordinated studs to wear in her second ear piercing on her wedding day. She asked for something simple to complement her customized Laurel Earrings in Gold and Blush without overpowering the whole look.
They were the perfect piece for Jill!
I thought that their simple design would make them a super versatile accessory to wear in almost any context. I also remembered that multiple clients have requested more stud earring options. So, it made perfect sense to recreate this pair of crystal and pearl stud earrings for my new collection!
These stud earrings are one of my favorite pairs to wear personally. Their simple design makes them a lovely and comfortable pair of earrings to wear with my everyday wardrobe. I also love to wear them in my second ear piercing to complement my favorite drop earrings on a date night or special occasion.
A closer look at the inspiration behind the trendy bridal necklace
One of my favorite pieces in the new collection I created for 2017 is the limited edition Bridal Choker Vine Necklace.
This necklace is as delicate and lovely as its wirework is intricate. Here’s a closer look at my inspiration as a designer as I made this handcrafted piece for my new collection of jewelry and modern bridal accessories!
One of the biggest jewelry trends this year has been the return of the choker.
Because I draw inspiration as a designer from the fashion world, I knew that I had to make a “nod” to the trendy choker necklace when I designed my new collection. However, I also knew that the plastic “tattoo chokers” of my middle school years just wouldn’t fit for J’Adorn Designs as an upscale jewelry brand. (Or, frankly, in the wardrobe of most women over 25!)
Handcrafted wire vines have long been a staple element in my bridal accessory designs, so it came naturally to extend that signature style to my first choker necklace.
I made the Bridal Choker Vine Necklace with the same golden wire as the vine-style hairpieces from my collection. I used freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals to adorn the branches of the choker. Then, I finished the piece with a delicate gold filled chain that clasps in the back. It’s a dramatic, stunning piece of wedding jewelry that would make the perfect focal piece for a fashion-forward bridal ensemble!
Have you seen my new collection of handcrafted jewelry and modern bridal accessories? Today’s blog post focuses on one of the new additions to the hair accessories category in my shop, the Silver and Blue Crystal Bridal Hair Vine! You might remember this headpiece from my previous blog post about the winter wedding editorial from earlier this year.
This bridal hair vine is one of the most versatile pieces in my new collection because it can be placed anywhere in your wedding hairstyle. With its flexible wire and combs on either end, the possibilities for this wedding hair accessory are nearly endless!
Here are a few ideas to help inspire your wedding hairstyle using a bridal hair vine:
Across the back of your updo like the model in the picture
Across the front of your forehead for a more bohemian bridal hairstyle
As a traditional headband
Ask your hairstylist to weave the bridal headpiece through a braided bridal updo
Are you planning to wear a hair wine in your wedding hairstyle?
How do you plan to style it?
Last week was a pretty big deal at the J’Adorn Designs studio!
I finally unveiled my new collection of jewelry and bridal accessories on Friday – which also happened to be my 30th birthday! I celebrated the big day by sending out a special gift to my email BFFs in the morning and throwing a virtual party on my Instagram page all day long. It was a great day of celebration that included three of my favorite things: cake, champagne, and beautiful jewelry!
In case you missed the announcement, here are some highlights of the new collection you’ll want to check out!
Our first BRIDAL BELT (which you can also wear as a headpiece!)
I’ll be sharing a bit about each piece from the new collection here on the blog in the coming weeks. Today I invite you to check out the full collection over in my online shop (and let me know if you have a favorite!)
