The pink, gold, and blush jewelry from my bridal collection were the perfect accessories for this look. All of the details were styled after Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015, Radiant Orchid. So this deep cool shade of pink popped up all over – from the shoes to the florals, and even the wedding cake!

Here’s a closer look at the beautiful pink, blush, and gold wedding jewelry from this photo session.

I loved seeing my jewelry designs featured in this luxury bridal fashion editorial!

Don’t you just love the way the pink and gold Y-shaped necklace complements Elle’s strapless sweetheart wedding dress neckline?

I used the same Swarovski crystals and pearls from Elle’s necklace in her matching bridal earrings and bracelets to make a cohesive set of jewelry.

Memorial Frame Pendant for a Bride’s Bouquet

How do you honor the memory of a beloved parent at your wedding?

This is the question one J’Adorn bride brought to me earlier this year.

Michelle wanted to honor the memory of her father, whom she’d recently lost while she was planning her wedding.

 I had the idea to create a photo frame pendant for her bouquet to hold a picture of her dad during her walk down the aisle.

She loved the idea! So I presented her with a few different frame pendant design options to choose from. Michelle chose a frame pendant that had an antiqued silver color with black rhinestone accents. She loved the vintage look and it made the perfect accent to her bridal bouquet!

Next, Michelle sent me her favorite photo of her father electronically. I had the picture printed professionally on the best paper available, then cut the print by hand to fit the frame pendant.

Because Michelle carries her father’s memory with her every day, I wanted to make sure this memorial frame pendant would be something she could wear after her wedding day.

So, I provided a necklace chain for the frame pendant so she could wear it with other outfits long after her walk down the aisle.

Michelle told me that she loved the final design of her memorial piece!

She was thrilled to be able to have her father “walk her down the aisle” even though he couldn’t be physically present on her wedding day.

And she looks forward to wearing the frame pendant necklace in the future to carry her father’s memory closely at all times.

Custom Wedding Jewelry for Kimberly + Jesse

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.
