Shop Small Catonsville: Featured Artist + Planner

The holiday shopping season is officially upon us!

It’s a flurry of anxiety, excitement, warm fuzzies, and sugar crashes over here. Anyone else? I’ve been hard at work in my studio stocking up my inventory of custom and modern jewelry to bring to the holiday markets I’m participating in this year. One such market – Shop Small Catonsville – is especially close to my heart simply because I’ve had the honor of co-planning it for the second year in a row! It’s an intimate open house style market highlighting a talented group of local makers with gifts for just about everyone on your holiday shopping list.

Jill’s Elegant Wedding Day Style

When Jill and I met for her initial design consultation, I knew almost immediately that her custom bridal jewelry was going to be special. As I shared in a previous post, I created a coordinating set of accessories for Jill to wear on her wedding day. This set included a double stranded pearl bracelet, two pairs of earrings, and a golden hair vine with elements in blush, pearl, and crystal – the perfect elegant wedding day look! Today I’m sharing a look inside how she styled these accessories with her beautiful gold and ivory gown on her wedding day.

The gold beaded belt she added was the perfect complement to the elegant gold jewelry with blush pearls, metallic leaves, and diamond white crystals. Her custom hair vine was molded perfectly by her hair stylist to complement the low, boho-style updo she chose for her blonde hair.

A Maryland-based artisan herself, Jill wanted to support local small business as much as possible while selecting items for her wedding.  She chose The Garter Girl to make her stylish ivory wedding garter and Eikoh Design Studio for her customized glass jewelry box. I think all of the details came together perfectly, don’t you?

It shines through every picture!  To Jill and Eric, the newlyweds: may your new life together as husband and wife be every bit as beautiful as your elegant wedding day was (even if it can’t be as perfect!) Thank you for choosing J’Adorn Designs to create your elegant wedding accessories!
