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.
Jill’s wedding gown was simply stunning, with its sweetheart neckline, intricate gold details, and soft billowy skirt. 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?
Even though the accessories and details at this wedding were pretty darn close to perfect, the most beautiful part of the day was the love that Jill and Eric so clearly have for one another. 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!

Jill’s elegant wedding jewelry was based on the following designs from the J’Adorn Designs Couture Collection:
Her custom hair vine and second-hole accent earrings were bespoke designs. To inquire about similar custom bridal accessories for your wedding, visit the Contact Page.
This summer has been the best one for J’Adorn Designs yet. This is because I’ve had record breaking numbers of custom designs, and each suite of accessories seems to be even more beautiful than the last. I’m more than a little obsessed with my most recent commission and I’m thrilled to highlight them on the blog today.
I made this set of custom wedding jewelry for Jill, a fellow creative entrepreneur and the designer behind Tomahawk Design Co. Like many of my clients, Jill has sensitive skin, which made the quality & type of metals I used to make her wedding jewelry a high priority. We opted for 16k gold plated earring posts, which I knew would ensure her comfort for the duration of her wedding day – from first look to last dance. We also incorporated freshwater pearls in an adapted version of our Laurel Earrings in Gold & Blush and some tiny accent earrings for her second ear piercings.
The set was made complete by a two-strand bracelet of Swarovski pearls with crystal and gold connectors. The finishing touch (and my favorite piece of the set!) was Jill’s branch-y hairpin, which makes the perfect complement to the low, loose updo that she’ll wear on her wedding day. Scroll through to the bottom of the post for a sneak peek of Jill’s gorgeous hairstyle!
Congratulations to Jill (and Eric!) on her upcoming nuptials! I can’t wait to share her entire look, complete with dress, veil, shoes, and other fabulous details, in a later post.

One of the great joys I’ve had since founding J’Adorn Designs in 2012 has been the opportunity to reconnect with old friends right before one of the biggest days of their lives. This was the case with Kimberly – a friend of mine from high school with whom I’d only kept in touch via social media since our graduation. Interestingly enough, the groom also graduated high school with us (although they didn’t begin dating until after college), so designing this bridesmaids’ jewelry suite had an especially personal element for me as a designer.
Kimberly’s family lived in France for a good portion of her childhood, an experience that clearly had an influence on her sense of style and elegant taste. While the bride opted to wear heirloom pieces on her wedding day, she commissioned me to design a varied but coordinated suite of custom jewelry for her bridesmaids. It was my great pleasure to create these special pieces for the women who stood beside her.
Many congratulations to Kimberly and Jesse! May the life you build together be just as beautiful as your wedding day.

As promised in last week’s post, today we’re taking a look at the attendants’ jewelry we designed for Ryan and Brittanie’s wedding. Working with Brittanie to envision these pieces was a pleasure for me as a designer because it was so evident that her focus was on honoring the women who had stood by her all the way up to the aisle. Talk about inspiring! From her bridesmaids to her day-of coordinator, this bride wanted a thoughtful gift for each of her attendants, and the resulting jewelry suite was beautiful. Here’s a close-up look at the full collection:
Brittanie’s older sisters were her matrons of honor, and they wore sterling silver necklaces with gemstone pendants and Swarovski crystal accent beads to complement their royal blue dresses. These necklaces were a theme of the bridal party jewelry, with 5 of the 7 women wearing a variation of the necklace. Each one had a different pendant to create a matching but varied look that incorporated all of Brittanie’s chosen colors for the event. We varied the lineup of bridesmaids by giving a coordinating pair of earrings to the maid of honor, and a bracelet to another bridesmaid. Brittanie staggered the lineup of jewelry for well-coordinated mixture of styles that suited each of her best girls.
Brittanie’s flower girls were her beloved nieces. They each got one of these delicate floral cuff bracelets, customized to fit their toddler-sized wrists. The day-of coordinator, Kiley, was one of Brittanie’s mentors (as well as the wife of the ceremony officiant, who was a mentor to Ryan!). Brittanie wanted to be sure Kiley was honored just as much as her other attendants, so she gifted her a pair of these earrings from our shop. They were the perfect match to Kiley’s vintage-inspired dress and multi-stranded pearl necklace.
Congratulations to Brittanie and Ryan on your new marriage, and thank you for choosing J’Adorn Designs to create your custom wedding jewelry!
