Queens of a gentler sort can have their crowning glory bejeweled and hand-made.
If you haven’t discovered it yet, go NOW to Etsy.com and find hand- made items for your wedding, by the actual artists themselves! Three designers we love are Myra Callan, Marisol Aparicio, and Theresa Joy.
Here are a few of our favorite crowning glories. Each designer has her own style and price range, so check them out. This page and bottom right on the next page are by Myra Kim. Her pieces are glamorous-modern with a vintage tinge. These pieces are hand-wired with pearl beads, charms, and rhinestones. Order at least a month ahead. Below left: this piece by Marisol Aparicio has numerous fresh water pearls, sparkly Austrian rhinestones, silver rhinestone encrusted leaves and is finished with a delicate silver and off white flower, hand-wired to a silver, metal comb.
Top right shows one of the many lovely crowns by Theresa Joy with woodland themes. This one is a pretty, white bud vine on a woven natural wire base. This accessory can say as much about your personality as the dress itself. Make it say, “STUNNING!” with these hand-made charmers.
