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!

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.

Michelle’s Custom Sapphire Wedding Jewelry

Custom Sapphire Oval Halo Earrings and Necklace Jewelry Set by Baltimore Custom Jeweler J'Adorn Designs

You may remember Michelle’s custom jewelry story and her sapphire jewelry from earlier this year…

After falling in love with an unattainable antique necklace that she saw in a magazine, Michelle reached out to have me make a custom set of wedding jewelry for her using that necklace as inspiration.

Scroll down to see how she styled her custom sapphire wedding jewelry set!

Michelle’s personal style is one of classic elegance with sentimental touches. 

She combined timeless pieces like her solitaire diamond engagement ring with personal details like hairstyling from her long-time friend Erica Cote of Silver Immersion.

Her sapphire jewelry set represents both of these important elements as accessories and new heirlooms. The style is ageless; and Michelle will enjoy remembering the happiness of her wedding day whenever she wears these special jewels.

Something blue jewelry, custom sapphire bridal necklace, by Catonsville custom jeweler J'Adorn DesignsHere’s what Michelle had to say about her custom sapphire jewelry and her custom design experience:

“Everything Alison created was totally beautiful and far met my expectations. I so enjoyed working with Alison in the months leading up to my wedding. She was extremely responsive, always willing to share ideas, quick to research my visions, and helpful with referrals to other vendors for my wedding planning. Not only did Alison create stunning pieces for my wedding, which my guests were talking about all night, she also became my friend.”

Custom Rose Gold Jewelry for Bayside Elopement

Jami’s custom rose gold jewelry was featured on Burnett’s Boards, Borrowed & Blue, and The Annapolis Wedding Blog!

Custom Rose Gold Jewelry Baltimore Elopement by J'Adorn Designs Bridal Jewelry

I made this set of custom rose gold jewelry for #jadornbride Jami as part of a styled elopement giveaway last December. 

The giveaway was called the Enchanting Elopement giveaway and it was the idea of a Baltimore-area wedding planner, Enchanting Events and Design. We collaborated with 15+ Baltimore-area wedding pros to help one sweet couple tie the knot.

It was the perfect way to end the year on a loving, philanthropic note!

In preparation for the big day, I invited Jami to my jeweler’s studio to try on pieces from my collection of modern bridal accessories and choose her favorite piece. I showed her a handful of earrings and she fell in love with my Double Crystal Teardrop Earrings in Rose Gold immediately. We both agreed that these sparkly rose gold earrings would be the perfect pair to stand out in her wedding pictures!

Jami also wanted a piece of jewelry that she could wear after her wedding in her day-to-day life.

Continuing on the rose gold theme and remembering a comment she made about a love for natural crystals, I made Jami a one-of-a-kind bracelet with a delicate chain and singular gold druzy stone. It was the perfect personal piece of custom jewelry to make her bridal look complete!

Jami and Brad are the quintessential Baltimore couple: their first date was at a Ravens game, both live & work downtown, and Jami works for Under Armour. They’re down to earth and have a deep pride for the city they call home. I was honored to make Jami’s custom rose gold jewelry and play a part in giving them the wedding of their dreams.

Cheers to the happy couple – toasted with a couple of Boh’s, of course!
